Boot camp style classes can be beneficial in teaching some basics of weight lifting. At least the one I've gone to. Mine did a mix of things with dumbbells and kettlebells (pick your own weight), to hit almost every part of body. Then things like stair running, sprints, burpees, etc. thrown into the mix. I also liked the variety, every class was different in some way. Everything was done at a fast pace and lots of reps for the most part, but I left feeling like I had been worked hard. After a while of doing that I decided to go to an actual weight room so I could do things like squat, deadlift, bench with weight heavier than 25 lb dumbbells, but I think boot-camp was a great starting point. I still go to the class a few times a month when I need a lighter workout, but it still ends up kicking my butt!
