One of the reasons I started attending bootcamps to supplement my running and cycling was to vary movement and use of different muscle groups. It is one of the few exercise activities that gets you moving in transverse planes of motion. The benefits of which go far beyond helping general fitness as described in this blog piece. Moving in transeverse planes could be the only fitness workout that actually helps against 'sitting disease' (yes sitting down is now a disease that kills more people than smoking). Take a read through and get rolling around like a child, and you'll start feeling a whole lot better.

It’s bad enough that it’s got its own name: sitting disease.
