What are Bootcamps?

The idea of a bootcamps, or boot camps, for the general public has really taken off lately, as people seek a quick boost to their fitness or an effective weight loss program.

Bootcamps have many different styles and many different objectives, but will always share certain features - tough workouts designed to get the blood pumping and the muscles working.


Whether you choose one-off bootcamps for your workout, or a week long intensive, you'll get a style of exercise based on army training, a proven way to get in shape quickly.

The concept has been refined and updated to suit everyone, with programs for men, for women, for weight loss, and in a variety of locations.  You can choose from weekends to mid week breaks, even week-long programs, in locations as diverse as Dartmoor, the Brecon Beacons, or even Portugal.

Of course all worthwhile health programs also need to review nutrition, so the longer programs will also include some great, healthy food, and instruction to help you improve you own diet once the week is over.

If you are ready to make a serious commitment to improving your fitness or losing weight, this can be a great way to get started.  You'll kick start your fitness program, and learn some great new exercises, all the while being put through your paces by a tough, dedicated instructor.

Not only will you get fitter, but taking on a challenge like this will teach you about yourself, so that you'll return with a new outlook, a new feeling of self worth, and the ability to take on challenges and succeed!
