Many weight loss boot camps pop up every spring. Should you even think of attending one? What you you look for? How can you follow up for successful long-term weight reduction?
If it's a tough question for you, what about sending your child to a boot camp for kids?
My article attacks these questions. As always, my DeHaan Services blog also publicizes my article in "Can a Boot Camp Teach How to Lose Weight?" (Added on Feb. 26, since I had already publicized a Decoded Science article on the 25th).
Fit for a Writing Tip
Although I do see them advertised on lamp posts every spring and summer, they generally have a very outdated online presence.
Rather than focus on local boot camps for weight reduction, I switched to a more general overview of what to expect from a burst of diet and exercise.
My other choice was to alert my readers that they might be disappointed if they pursue fitness boot camps online. I'm not sure this would have been very helpful. It could also become untrue by next week, if the boot camp operators simply schedule themselves to update their sites every March.
The writing tip is to keep an open mind when researching your topic. If you're surprised by something, ask yourself whether your readers would want you to share that surprise with them? If not, can you take a different approach?
In this case, I took a different, and perhaps more universally helpful, approach to weight loss boot camps.
