Bodyweight bootcamp is fun, innovative and inspiring! It's a completely online training program where I will be coming to your living room (literally) to train you via an online medium.
The bootcamp itself is divided into four parts:
The exercises selected specifically for this program are for beginners to intermediate level. It is a completely bodyweight based program, so you will not need any form of equipments except a yoga mat or a big towel.
We will train live together, live, two times a week for 50- 60 minutes and you will have one more day of training by yourself using my fitness app. My app has detailed videos, exercise tracker and clear instructions about each variation I choose for you.
The point of this bootcamp is to feel better and improve your posture and gait. We will use techniques from different forms of fitness such as Animal Flow, Vinyasa Yoga, BodyShred and SnC to strengthen spinal mobility and improve join function. We will start very slow and build our way up together as we progress.
The live session will be held mornings (7.30 AM IST) and evenings (6.00 PM IST). If the time slot does not match you, do not worry, since a link to our session will be mailed for you to practice at your convenient time.
Nutrition is 80% of a fit lifestyle and often get's side tracked to fitness. Besides a weekly nutrition plan and grocery list, I will come live once in a week to go over recipes and answer questions. I will be introducing you to 100% plant- based eating all the wonderful benefits it has to offer.
Unlike my personalised plans, the focus here is not to follow a 'diet chart', but rather to have enough knowledge in your hand to customise your own meal plan. I will educate you with knowledge I have gained through years to start scripting your own meal plan as per YOUR unique requirements.
How is a nutrition plan different from a diet plan? Let me give you an example, a diet plan will say to have one cup rice and one cup daal for lunch, but a nutrition plan will say to have one type of grain and one type of lentil for lunch. Now you choose your grain and lentil. It could be roti (grain being wheat) and stir fry mung beans (lentils) or Ragi balls and sambhar or even daal- chawal. Choose what you like the best so it is a lifestyle change and not a temporary diet.
How is this better? Well a healthy body is also intuitive in nature. Your intuition should tell you what to eat and when to stop. We often mask these signals with technology (like watching TV while eating) or lack of nutrients (leading to junk food cravings). This masking of signals leads of obesity. Your body wants to be healthy, just remove the masks and you will see how quickly it springs back to health. No scale should tell us how much to eat or what to eat. which comes to our third part,
- Lifestyle modification
We all have gone on 'fat loss programs' only to fall of the wagon and gain more weight later. The only true way to sustain a transformation is via lifestyle modification.
Lifestyle modification simply means making small and sustainable lifestyle changes a permanent part of you. For example, starting your day with a common kitchen herb that is naturally a gentle laxative like mint leaves. This will wake up your digestive system and keep your colon healthy. Your gut is where 80% of diseases arise and it is very important to keep the good gut bacteria growing. Greens like mint leaves are also loaded with fiber which acts as a natural appetite suppressants. Making sure you naturally feel fuller and consume only enough calories during the day.
In this program we will challenge ourselves to making two small lifestyle changes per week and stick with them. Aiming for two is simple and does not put an additional load on our day. As we get comfortable with them at the end of the week, we will add two more and so on. By the time you finish the program, you will have adopted 8 new, healthy habits comfortably fit into your daily lifestyle.
What if you slip and fail, don't worry! An entire team of people just like you are here to motivate you back up! In no time, you will be back on track. It is not about how many times you fall, but how quickly you get up after every fall.
Mental health is much more important than physical health. Ever noticed how when you listen to negative information online, your digestion, sleep and mood gets affected? Even if the negative news will not affect you personally. We carry around external stimuli we take in from the environment with us and do not realise how much it affects our physical health.
Just like we train our physical muscles for a few hours per day, it is important to train our mind to drop or reduce the thought traffic in our head for a few minutes per day. And like with our body, you don't have to carry around the dumbells in your hand all day long to maintain your muscle mass, once you train it, it stays. Once you quieten the though traffic in your mind for a few minutes per day, you carry that state of mind in everything else you do through the day. Suddenly, you experience a clarity in your thinking, leading to better decision making. Just by including a few minutes of meditation daily, you attract universal energy and grow healthier, wealthier and happier.
Through the bodyweight bootcamp, meditation is a part of your daily practice. Every session will end with a few minutes of non- doing to quiet the mind and the though traffic in your mind. We make meditation a habit- just like brushing your teeth.
