6th June Total Warrior Training 

With Total Warrior coming we will helping you train up for the event. This is a normal bootcamp still session but bringing lots exercises to help you with the race and brilliant for everyone to attend.

Entrance fee is £12 (pay on the day). Take a picnic, chairs/blankets, own alcohol. Please note glass is not allowed. Let either Clare Davies or Lizzy Davies (no relation!) know if you plan to come just so we can keep an eye out for you. We will sort logistics nearer the time. Plan B for bad weather will be to just meet in a pub!!

Definitely one of the highlights of the year

- Claire Brimblecombe

I have been a member of bootcamp for 4 years regularly attending classes each week. These classes have made a difference to both my physical and mental health. I have seen a difference to my fitness levels and have dropped a dress size. I have entered 10k and mud races with UK Outdoor Fitness something I would never have dreamt of before. The best thing for me however, about bootcamp is the people and the encouragement you receive. I have met people who have become good friends and have looked out for each other during this difficult lockdown period. I am impressed with how adaptable  UK Outdoor Fitness have been during Covid. I am grateful for the online classes but look forward to returning to coffee corner soon.

I have been taking part in UK Outdoor Fitness bootcamps for almost 10 years now.
What has kept me going back all this time is the enthusiasm of the instructors, the banter with other members and the flexibility within the sessions to push myself as hard as I want to or be a little less energetic depending on what sort of mood I’m in.

They are definitely not military style bootcamps and offer something for people of all abilities. I also find that doing exercise outdoors in the fresh air in local parks is much more fun that sweating away in a gym.

I would certainly recommend UK Outdoor Fitness to anyone looking to get fit and
have fun at the same time!

Thank you for the past 10 years, and I’m looking forward to the next 10!
