Welcome to BootCraft’s May update!
April marked an awesome milestone for BootCraft. We reached over 400 active users which is double that from the start of the year. We’re on track to my goal of 800 active users this year which will allow me to hire people to help me! Like a developer who can create some more meatier new features for you.
This month’s featured designer is Rosie Goldsmith. Rosie has been a long time part of the Bootcamp Ideas community and was actually one of the first trainers I called on Skype to run the concept of BootCraft by. Her bootcamp for Mum’s (Fit Mama) has exploded over the past few years from a way to find people to exercise with to a full-time, part-time business (she’s also a mother of two boys).
During May she’s sharing 12 new drills with us from her archives. Here they are:
- Everybody’s It
- Sprinting to 50
- Pairs Core Finisher
- Circle of Cardio
- 100 to 10
- Sit and Wait
- Cardio Blast Intervals
- 100 Rep and Side Step
- Sprint and Work Those Abs
- Reverse Accumulation
- Running Man
- Delay Runs
Save Your Workouts
BootCraft is a work in project. I deliberately made it available in it’s simplest form so I could grow it and improve it based on what the members wanted.
Last month I added a new feature. I had planned on adding it in the future but after three emails in one week asking for it, I decided to bump it up the priority list.
Each drill now has a ‘Save’ button that adds that drill to a personal list of saved workouts. This way you can browse through the site ‘saving’ the drills you want with a click of a button, then you can come back to your list when you are ready to plan out your month of sessions.
BootCraft is the tool I desperately wanted as a trainer.
I liked to plan my sessions by type. Eg. HIT workouts, Strength workouts, Teambuilding workouts, Boxing sessions. Sometimes I just couldn’t think of another HIT workout to do and I wanted to be able to quickly look up a selection of HIT drills to choose from. But I couldn’t, instead I would have to look through blog posts and videos trying to find something that fit.
So I created BootCraft which lets you filter through dozens of drills (at this time nearly 200 drills) for the workout you are looking for. As you can see above, I add new drills every month to keep things fresh.
Just like your clients pay you monthly to have you take care of their fitness for them, for a small monthly fee you can have your workout idea generation made easy.
