boot camp

A training camp involving rigorous exercise. The term is based on the training camp for recruits in the armed services, the new recruits being called “boots,” a name dating from World War I. The transfers of this name include a vigorous exercise program for women established by sports clubs, and a full-immersion boot camp to train actors for war movies, Warriors, Inc., established in 1984 by a retired Marine Corps captain, Dale Dye, who served in Vietnam. The term is on its way to clichédom.
