Get Moving with Trump Hotel Bootcamp

Whenever the Olympics come around, I become a complete couch potato. It's quite ironic considering the incredible athletic feats capturing my attention. All the super-fit athletes are also inspiring me to up my own workout game between my favorite events. It's not nearly at Olympian level, but I try to challenge myself with something new every few weeks. Earlier this summer I enjoyed a preview of Trump International Hotel & Tower New York's summer bootcamp in Central Park. It was so effective—I was sore for days—that I immediately asked for a rundown of all the moves. Now I'll admit that I haven't completed the circuits since then, but here's the whole workout that anyone with a bit of self-motivation (maybe a lot of motivation) and determination can complete outside or inside. All you need is a yoga mat and a small space. Get ready to sweat!

Warm Up: High Skips, Walking Lunges, Side Shuffle

Repeat each move for 30 seconds, repeat each circuit twice. Rest between circuits.

  • Jump Squats
  • Burpees
  • Push Ups
  • Sit Ups

 

 

  • Dips
  • B-Boys: Facing the sky, bridge the body with both hands and feet on the ground, touch one hand to the opposite foot out in front. Switch and repeat. 
  • Moving Plank—Start on forearms and go up on hands, moving continuously.
  • Mountain Climber

 

  • High Knees
  • Downward Dog Push Up: Basically a "yoga push-up", which is going down into the pose known as chaturanga and then transitioning up to Down Dog
  • Plank Thrust
  • Bicycle Crunch

 

  • Plyo Lunge: Cycling lunges, jumping in place, switching legs midair. 
  • Long Jump: Leap forward aiming for a full length of the yoga mat and jump backward in small hops to return to starting point.
  • Plank Jacks: In a plank position, feet together, jump feet out wide and return to start.
  • Bird Dog: In a push up position, lift one arm straight up and the opposite leg as the same time. Hold briefly and switch, repeat. 

 

  • Skater: Hopping laterally side to side on one foot, like an Olympic speed skater. 
  • Pop Up Squat
  • Lateral Hops: Keep feet together, hop left and right as quickly as possible (mimicking the motion of skiing).
