Richesson Hosts Broncos Boot Camp

Posted Jul 16, 2013

Broncos Strength and Conditioning Coach Luke Richesson hosted Broncos Boot Camp, a strength and fitness program for women, on Tuesday evening at the Broncos' training facility and weight room.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- It’s no secret that the Denver Broncos training facility and weight room is where players like Von Miller and Demaryius Thomas toil and train their bodies for the rigors of an NFL season.

But over the past five weeks, the facility has also hosted a slightly different audience of fitness gurus – dozens of women who have trained with Strength and Conditioning Coach Luke Richesson as part of the Broncos Boot Camp program.

“It’s been great having the gals here,” Richesson said on Tuesday evening, noting that 50-75 women have come to each session. “We don’t get to have the majority of the team for a month, so to be able to have all the gals come in here, it’s been good for us.”

The women, all of whom are Crush Fan Club for Women members, are led by Richesson in exercises that focus on fundamental stretching and core strength techniques. 

“I think a lot of people wonder what goes on behind the scenes, with this unique equipment,” Richesson said. “I think the message for our staff to give to the gals was that you don’t need fancy equipment. With your body weight and the right mindset, you can really get after it and change your body. I think they’ve grasped that concept.”

Richesson noted that the sessions have lasted between an hour and 90 minutes long and that there has been a 60 percent return rate of participants each week.

And while there’s no mistaking that the ladies participating are diehard Broncos fans, Richesson said that his campers have come to each session with a strong focus on training.

“I think a lot of things have changed over the past 15 years with regards to training and they’ve just come in here with open minds and have just embraced it,” Richesson said. “If you can get them to understand the proper technique from A-Z, it sets them up for success.”
