Boot Camp in the Park FAQ
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
WHAT IS THE COST TO PARTICIPATE?
WHEN IS THE PROGRAM OFFERED?
Consider a walk, jog or run around beautiful Centennial Lake following Boot Camp in The Park. If you decide to walk, jog or run the lake before the workout, most walkers would complete the loop on time if they start by 7am. Joggers and runners would likely complete the loop if they started by 7:15am. Our location is Corporate Pavilion H which can be accessed by turning onto Woodland Road off of 108 and taking an immediate left turn into the park. We will post signage near the gate and on our website if the location should change. Once you enter the park, just follow the Get Active Howard County signs.
WHAT IS THE GENERAL FORMAT FOR THE BOOT CAMP?
Every exercise and activity can be modified for those that prefer a slower paced workout and to accommodate all fitness levels. Just as important, the trainers are always ready to kick it up for participants who are up for the challenge.
