What do the boot camps involve?
Variety is the spice of life and also the best way to improve full body fitness. Exercise is not all about running as fast as you can and as far as you can. At Northern Boot Camp you will be introduced to a whole range of different ways to exercise from a studio, to a mountain, to a river, to a park, to the comfort of a sitting room! We have both indoor and outdoor facilities and sessions are designed around the latest evidence-based training techniques that will get the best results and also allow us to have fun. Classes include circuits, boxercise, interval training, TRX, tabbatta, core stability, pilates, swiss balls, functional resistance training, kettlebells and much much more.
Northern Boot Camp trainers are not only qualified in health and fitness but also in teaching in the great outdoors. This ensures that our fitness and weight loss boot camps are diverse, challenging and full of opportunity to kick start your lifestyle change. Our expert trainers use their vast experience to provide morning exercises that are unique and inspiring. The afternoons at boot camp provide the opportunity to engage in a specialist outdoor activity, from a canoe trip, mountain biking session, or a more extreme gorge walk where the only limitation is you! There is a range of indoor sessions too and we do have a wet/harsh weather plan, with access to both a functional gym and a health SPA, the options are endless.
How are the evenings spent?
We believe in value for money and while there will be opportunities to just ‘chill out’, we also offer the chance to increase your knowledge by incorporating seminars and discussions into our camps. Nutrition and diet is a key element to the camps and also key to long-term weight and muscle management and is therefore included as one of our seminar sessions. While the boot camps are challenging, there is also plenty of time to recover, distress and focus on you. Included in our camps are unique flexibility and relaxation sessions, as well as an optional massage and at least one free visit to a Health SPA.
How fit do I need to be?
Our BOOTCAMPS ARE OPEN TO ALL!! It does not matter what your shape, size, age or physical ability is you will be welcomed. You will have an initial one to one discussion with a trainer and the program can be adapted around you to ensure all work to their own personal goal. So if you have never run more than 20meters before or if you regularly run 20miles it will be YOUR camp.
How long do they last?
All UK camps start on a Friday Evening, gates open from 18:30pm, train station pick ups are at 18.40pm. However, if you arrive after this time it is not a problem.

What are the sleeping arrangements?
Our weight loss boot camps are designed to fit YOU. This means that you choose the room style you prefer. From a private en suite room to a triple room (also en suite) the choice is yours.
