How to Start a Bootcamp with Close to No Equipment

Hi guys! It's Travis here today. How are you? I hear this all the time: "I want to start up a bootcamp... BUT... I need to save up hundreds of dollars to buy equipment... AND I need to a buy a new car / trailer... before I think about starting one..."

I have this conversation with trainers all the time and I'm super against this... I believe a Trainer can run a MEAN equipment based bootcamp while taking up hardly any space in the car and costing little to no $$!

If I was to start again... This would be my original kit
- 6 x suspension trainers ($20 each)
- 6 x resistance bands ($8 each)
- 6 x skipping ropes ($2 each)
- 1 x agility ladder: which can hold 6 ppl ($20)
Total = $200

AND... with that kit... you could run a circuit for 24 people (6 people on each station)... and if you added in a bodyweight station you could hold 30people!

ALSO... with that kit... you can literally fit every bit of equipment in a backpack and it weighs nothing! You don't need to worry about making multiple trips from car... spending 20mins packing / unpacking your car... weighing down your car... All you need is one backpack!

FINALLY... with that kit... there is ENDLESS variety.... with each bit of equipment - there is no limit of exercises and drills you can use!

Jono and I actually took a video in the community Facebook Group recently explaining this. Have a look below:
