Bounce Boot Camp on Shark Tank
Mobile Boot Camp for Kids - Episode 515- 1/10/2014
After completing the first of several training courses to complete before finally landing with the 1st Group, I distinctly remember thinking they should make Boot Camp mandatory for everyone to experience at some level. Knowing your personal strengths along with learning "real teamwork" to get past ANY Obstacle can only be a good thing that pays dividends for life. What better way to start learning these valuable skills when your still young enough to make them a habit while being taught by a Former NFL Player that knows a thing or two about staying motivated?
Thomas Hill a Former NFL Player for the Green Bay Packers, is the owner of Bounce Boot Camp who's coming to the Shark Tank with a unique and super motivated way to get your Kid's into shape. The Bounce Boot Camp is a mobile fitness program for children similar to a Military Style Boot Camp.
Each new recruit starts off with their own set of dog tags representing the rank of a private. As you develop new skills you're promoted to higher ranks until reaching the ultimate goal of a Master Jr. General. The higher your rank, the more prizes you qualify for which gives everyone the motivation to always try your very best.
What started out as an Inflatable Bounce Rental Company by Thomas and his wife Jane in 2004, soon grew into a complete exercise program for kid's to get in shape and have a lot of fun at the same time. Thomas, who is also a personal trainer, took all his knowledge becoming a professional sports player and developed this specialized strength building program just for kids. Some of the strength and team building activities include tug-of-war, capture the flag, relay races and obstacle course's designed with inflatable bouncy castles and slides.
Bounce BootCamp before Shark tank Update:Starting with the first Bounce Boot Camp in Anthem, Arizona has quickly spread to other Boot Camps being formed in Aviano, AZ. and now Fullerton, California. This entire business of having a boot camp designed for children has become so successful that Thomas Hill is now franchising this concept to help motivate kids across the country. According to the website new Bounce Boot Camps will soon be opening up in Scottsdale, AZ., Paradise Valley, AZ., Chandler, AZ., Peoria, AZ., Tyler, TX., Atlanta, Ga., Tulsa, OK. and New Orleans, LA. All these new locations are prior to Hill's appearance on the Shark Tank Show. I can only imagine how many more new locations will soon be opening up after a 7 million more people know about Boot Camps for Kids.
It's a Great Idea I'm sure at least a few Sharks are going to love and want to make an investment in. If I had to pick one Shark, in particular, it would have to be Daymond John who has a reputation investing in successful fitness type programs on the Shark Tank Show such as Billy Blanks Jr. and Ryan "Cowboy" Ehmann. Combine Thomas Hills Bounce Bootcamp for Kids and you have a perfect trifecta covering this very lucrative fitness market.
