Inside CAMP Circuit

CAMPers love Circuit. With the Woodway treadmills and our incredibly attractive instructors, it's easy to see why. But we're always so pleased to see so many of you booking out class after class, forcing unsuspecting newbies onto the waitlist. However, we also know that Circuit's offerings can be a little confusing. Is there running in kickboxing? And actually though, WTF is Stations? Thankfully, our Lead Circuit Instructor, Lance, was available for a chat. Read on to find out what really goes down in the Circuit room, and why once you start, you can't stop coming back for more. 


Under the umbrella of Circuit, we offer several different varieties of classes. These include our 50-minute Circuit class, Stations, Cardio Kickboxing, Arms & Abs, and Ass & Abs. Plus, we have Cycle-Circuit Blend and Circuit-Yoga Blend, if you want to get the best of both worlds in a 60 minute time frame. For more info about our Blend classes, click here. But for more information about our Circuit-specific classes, keep on scrolling. 

Circuit itself is a 50-minute high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout that focuses on the full body. By combining treadmill running with the use our elite strength-building equipment, you'll develop stronger muscles and better endurance. Plus, with those sprints you'll do on the treadmills, you'll be fully prepared to win your next game of Red Rover. Because Circuit focuses on the full body as opposed to specific muscles, you'll also look stronger and healthier overall. Who needs Leg Day?


On the other hand, some people love targeting specific body parts, and we understand that. That's why we have Ass & Abs and Arms & Abs, two strength-specific workouts to help you target those vanity muscles. Both of these classes are great for beginners, as treadmill use is limited to the warm-up. So if you're afraid of our Woodway treadmills, these offerings might be perfect for you! 


Stations is one of our most intense offerings, and that's why so many of you love it. Plan on doing two rounds of 8 different "stations" or exercises, with 30 seconds of work followed by a 15 second rest. 15 seconds have never flown by so quickly! By the end of class, you'll have done 16 different exercises, including some treadmill drills, and you'll be sweating more than you do on a summer day in Florida. Lance and our other instructors pride themselves on always making the workouts fresh, so expect to never do the same workout twice in Stations. 

Cardio Kickboxing is super popular because it's so different. It's 50 minutes of boxing with our bags, so get ready to kick and punch your way to stress relief. This workout is great post-rush-hour, especially when used as an alternative to Anger Management. If you own wraps and/or gloves, please bring them. Otherwise, plan on spending $7 to buy wraps and $2 to rent gloves. Oh, and you will use the treadmill during this class, but only for conditioning purposes- AKA no sprints! 


Overall CAMP's Circuit classes cannot be beat. Every class, no matter which variety, will always include sick music and a light show, so you'll feel like you're in a nightclub. Our Woodway treadmills, though intimidating at first, are designed to build speed, so they'll help you get faster for that next 5K race. They also require no electricity, so you're saving the environment by powering up your treadmill every time you step into Circuit. And no matter what class you take, Lance says to expect a "full-body ass-whoopin.'" Now really, what more can you ask for?
