What is bootcamp…? Well think ‘group training sessions’ think ‘variety’ think ‘fun’ and think ‘challenging’!! Sessions are run each week on a Thursday evening and include both men and women. They last for one hour and contain a broad mix of running and bodyweight exercises, providing you with an all-over body workout.
At our circuit-training style sessions you can expect to work hard and get hot and sweaty but also enjoy a new dimension to exercising because of the variety that the sessions bring.
Bootcamp training benefits
By providing a mixture of strength exercises and cardiovascular training, our bootcamp sessions will work your heart and lungs (CV) and give almost every muscle in your body a workout. Sessions involve a warm-up and cool-down, bodyweight exercises, running, stretching, relays, and exercises with a partner, there is a team-based theme which fuels the vibrant atmosphere and encourages participants to really put the effort in and achieve results.
Who is bootcamp training suitable for?
Bootcamp training is suitable for novice exercisers and fitness enthusiasts alike, because individuals will be allowed to work at their own personal level and intensity.
Our bootcamp sessions always include variations of each exercise to cater for varying abilities, and we will select balanced teams so that the competitive element remains fair. If you have an injury or are concerned about how challenging the session will be, talk to us before or during the session and we will regress the exercise accordingly.
What should I bring to the bootcamp exercise session?
For the outdoor sessions, you should dress appropriately for the time of year. Ideally, you should layer your clothing so that you can remove outer layers as you warm up. A lightweight waterproof jacket will help keep the wind and rain out in poor weather! I would always suggest in investing in a decent pair of trainers as poor fitting shoes can cause aches and pains.
Pack a towel and always bring a bottle of water to keep you hydrated because even in cold conditions you can lose a lot of fluid from breathing out. Hydration is even more important in the summer, when you will need to drink throughout your workout. It is also important to eat as soon as possible after your session ends to begin the refuelling and rebuilding process, which will optimize your recovery. Simply pack a snack in your kitbag that travels easily such as a banana or apple, this will help to keep your energy levels topped up until you can have a more substantial meal.
