Boot Camp training¬† combines running, interval training, and many other exercises using weights and/or body weight to help increase cardiovascular endurance, increase strength, and help people get into a routine of regular exercise.¬† It is called “boot camp” because we train groups of people, typically outdoors,. We are not similar to the military Boot Camps you may hear going around. We focus more on functional training and a variety of other calisthenic exercises. We try to give exercises and Equipment you may or may not see and be able to perform at the local gym.

We use the term ‘boot camp’ to describe group fitness classes that promote fat loss, encouragement and team effort in a friendly and safe outdoor setting. Boot Camp is designed to push people a little bit further than they would normally push themselves in the gym alone. The idea is that everyone involved works at their own pace as they team up and work towards one goal, either in pairs, small teams of three or four, or even two teams head on. We instill a lot of timed activities to motivate members to better their time next round, we find the level of intensity from this goes through the roof. We all like to beat past scores and times.

Our Boot camps provide social support for those taking part. This provides a different environment for those exercisers who get bored in a gym or feel intimidated by the gym setting. Participants make friends and socialise as they exercise. Our Boot camps are usually tested for fitness on Day 1 and then retested at the start of the new term. Boot Camps run for 4 weeks and you can jump in and start your 4 weeks whenever you like.
