The bootcamp classes are basically circuit training. You start off jogging on the spot, doing star jumps and squats for about 10 minutes, (no stretching, mind) then you get into the circuits. They consist of press ups, sit ups, lunges, free weights, medicine balls (doing the plank or press ups on them), burpees, tricep dips etc etc. There's roughly 20 people per class and you do each exercise for 1 min before moving round to the next one. You have a break, then you do it again. After that there's a larger group exercise of challenging press ups or sit ups or such like.
The exercises are very heavy on the wrists, so if you have weak wrists like me it can be a bit painful toward the end, but it's worth it.
Depending on what your goals are, and how hard you push yourself (yes, I'm talking about the ones who don't put the effort in - despite having paid and attended of their own free will!) - the bootcamp is good for working on body strength, getting a proper sweat on and making you ache like hell for a few days after. You definitely feel like you've done something worthwhile - be it for losing weight, getting fitter/stronger, or whatever.
It's not the most sophisticated class - this is the sort of training you can put together yourself in the park if you wanted to. However, the reason I go is because if left to my own devices I probably wouldn't. Value for money: well the price I paid for 10 sessions was very much worth it. Would I pay £12 per class though? Probably not.
