Whilst we are not able to deliver bootcamps at our Bamburgh base due to the Covid-19 virus, we want to help keep you active, fit and motivated during these times of lockdown and so we are delighted to be officially launching our new online bootcamp sessions.
The classes are live and interactive, hosted via Zoom. There are small group numbers per session (some more than others depending on the type of session) to ensure we are able to retain individual feedback throughout the session. We want to see every person and manage their form in each exercise and also encourage maximum work rates on an individual basis. Just like on a regular bootcamp all sessions are tailored for different fitness levels, for different ranges of movement and also for different injury restrictions, for example there is always a non-impact alternative in every class.
Length of sessions range from 30mins to 60mins and for some of the sessions you will need equipment, however in some cases this can be improvised equipment with materials from home. Click here for examples.
These sessions are fully interactive classes, in that we communicate with you throughout, the instructor will keep a close eye on your form and make sure we can see your full body at the right angle to be able to correct posture, form or technique and mostly to motivate you to push yourself and work to your individual maximum level. You can choose the view that you want to see on your screen during a class. Some will find it motivating to see others working ‘alongside you’ but others may prefer to have a one-to-one view with the instructor only during the class – either is fine.
We will be running various types of live sessions every week, encouraging those that have equipment to dust it off and put it to use and those that haven’t to work with body weight or stuff we can find round the home. The details of the weekly class timetable can be found here by clicking HERE and can also be seen on our booking page online.
All class participants must have filled out a registration form and disclaimer, which can be found by clicking on this link. This only needs to be done once and many of our campers will have one already, but it is your responsibility to make sure it is up to date. We will be checking this before the start of every class.
There is a charge of £5 per class, per screening device (if there are 2 of you together at home you pay for 1 only)
However, we appreciate that many of you (like us) may have had a huge reduction in income and if that is the case, please email [email protected] and I will waiver the charge to ensure that you can still get the benefits of a group socialisation and personal fitness session. I would much rather you do this and join us than not at all.
Also I will be recording a 1 or 2 classes per week as a video and posting on our youtube channel. Hopefully any key workers that are struggling with timings or as our way of saying thankyou will be able to follow a class. Obviously this is not interactive.
