Ionic BootCamp often starts with dynamic stretching and running, followed by a wide variety of interval training, including lifting weights/objects, pushups/situps, plyometrics, and various types of intense explosive routines. Many exercises using weights and/or body weight, similar to CrossFit routines, are used to lose body fat, increase cardiovascular efficiency, increase strength, and help people get into a routine of regular exercise. Ionic Bootcamp promotes fat loss, camaraderie, and team effort. It is designed to push people a little bit further than they would normally push themselves in the gym alone. The idea is that everyone involved works at their own pace as they team up and work towards one goal, either in pairs, small teams of three or four, or even two teams head on.
