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  at the heart of delivery and program design, making sure that the camp exceeds all expectations every week supported by our integral team, Bruce, Carl and Tony. 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 cook Carla, who produces culinary delights that continue to surprise excite all. Also not forgetting the lovely Carol who keeps are home and lodges in tip top condition!

Northern Bootcamp is still operating

As a result of COVID 19 and the most recent Tier restrictions, we are currently unable to operate our business as usual.

However, we continue to adapt and look for the positives as so long as you are healthy there really is nothing more important.  Our virtual online fitness classes have started again,  and it is wonderful to see so many familiar and lots of new faces. There are up to 4 different classes per day, taken by the owners themselves, Dan and Caroline.   All levels of ability are welcome with adaptations for injuries or mobility offered. If you would like to add some variety to your training, or simply make a start to exercise, please click here for more info.

Coming soon and available to order are Bootcamp Kitchen Christmas Hampers, packed full of healthy goodies to keep you on the right track through December. If you are interested in these, please send an email to [email protected] for more info.

Also available to purchase now are bootcamp gift vouchers. To give someone the gift of health this Christmas is more important than ever. Spread the bootcamp feeling and purchase either a monetary voucher, or a full 4 day or 7 day bootcamp for your loved ones to book at their convenience (valid for 24 months)

We hope to start our residential bootcamps again in January.   The bootcamp itself is now a more personal experience. We have spent the autumn expanding the facilities and in January the new additions will be complete. These include a hot tub, a barrel sauna, a BBQ grill house for the final supper and a brand new fitness studio.  There are new measures are in place to manage social distancing and keep everyone safe. However, the atmosphere, the activities, the stunning location and the feeling of immense well-being strongly remains.

Please stay safe and try to be as healthy as you can be. Stay in touch and follow our updates on Facebook and Instagram and by signing up to our newsletter we will keep you updated on the latest news here at Northern Bootcamp CLICK HERE
