Meet the team
Northern Bootcamp is the leading residential bootcamp in the North, welcoming campers nationally and globally. Established in 2010, the company has gone from strength to strength, building on the passion, enthusiasm and expertise of its founders, Dan and Caroline Smith.
Dan’s experience working as a physical training instructor in the Armed Forces for 13 years, and Caroline’s passion and skill in health and fitness were the driving forces behind the company. This combined with a strong desire to help people and make a difference to others’ lives is where the bootcamp idea was born.
Caroline’s experience as an international hockey player and managing director of an events company made the process easy, and Dan’s extraordinary knowledge and skill-set meant the first boot camp was up and running within a year.
Northern Bootcamp has developed and grown to be one of the UK’s best boot camps. However, the foundations on which the boot camp was born have not changed. At the heart of our success lies our incredible team – their infectious enthusiasm is matched only by their unrivalled knowledge of the very latest fitness and training techniques and the unique skill to inspire, motivate and share this knowledge with our clients.
The team has not been chosen lightly and the trainers, support staff, chef and operations manager all share a common goal. That is to make a difference to people’s lives. We eat, breathe and live fitness and adventure (along with many other things!). You will not find a more down to earth team, that is full of energy with complete belief of what we are delivering.
The knowledge and skill is commended daily as we operate our program embracing the latest evidence and stay current in our fields of specialism with regular training and research, so that even our most regular clients will never experience the same program twice.
Dan and Caroline are still very much at the heart of delivery and program design, making sure that the camp exceeds all expectations every week. Their amazing team includes other trainers Bruce, Paul, Hetty and Neil. Operations Manager Leanne continues to do an exceptional job looking after all of our clients and finally, last but no means least our friendly and incredibly talented chef, Annie, who produces culinary delights that continue to surprise excite all of us.
