English language fitness services in Tokyo just got a lot more accessible as Tokyo Bootcamp has just launched its flagship bootcamp program. With details of the program recently released on their website, there are no more excuses for Tokyoites, be it stay-at-home mothers or working professions, to be out of shape, especially with summer fast approaching, says Sam Law, the founder of Tokyo Bootcamp, and a certified personal trainer and sports conditioning coach.
"The purpose of the bootcamp program is to motivate and empower clients to reach their fitness goals, and have them feeling great in the process," Law says.
Featuring a constantly-changing program that incorporates full-body exercises and interval training, each workout balances the principles of exercise science with the needs of the clients. "We are not going to leave you gasping for breath,” reassures Law, “but your muscles will feel it, and that’s a good thing.”
Among the top reasons people fail to achieve their fitness goals are a lack of motivation and poor exercise selection. At Tokyo Bootcamp, experienced professional trainers will essentially take clients by the hand, and guide them step-by-step through the workouts, while encouraging them every step of the way. With this expert guidance, clients will avoid what Law refers to as the “cardio trap” a lot of gym goers fall into.
He states, “I cannot imagine a bigger waste of time than going to the gym every day to run on a treadmill; this is why you see the same people there day after day, year after year—because it simply does not work.”
Tokyo Bootcamp aims to change the way people look and feel about fitness. Their program begins the week of May 22 in Ebisu, Tokyo.© Japan Today
