Do you train if it is raining or snowing?

Yes, you will not believe me now but the wettest sessions can be the best session. The weather adds an extra element to the training and gives you a great feel good factor after. We do adjust the style of training we use in different weather conditions. The is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing choices!

Do you have facilities to store larger objects whilst training?

Yes the instructors will happily look after or lock any larger objects in their vehicles. The instructors accept no responsibility for these items though so please keep them to a minimum.

Yes, once a month we get together to run a health fitness and lifestyle seminar where we teach healthy eating for a fitter, slimmer, happier you. Please ask at class for more information if you wish to book a place.

Are the guys that train with you friendly?

Yes, it is not uncommon, maybe a little to common, too see the guys out on a Saturday night having a sherry together, or holidaying or at the wedding of someone that trains with us. We actively encourage friendly approach as this promotes team work and enjoyment. We’ve even had the odd ODFC relationship blossom from bootcamp.

Do you do anything else physical away from class?

We have an awesome group of guys that participate in adventure races, run races, day walks, bike rides, rock climbing and hill walkers and many more events. We also organise walking weekends, sailing trips and ski holidays.

So what is the difference between you and a gym?

Results, friendly, enjoyable, sociable and variety are all words that our guys would say make us different from any gym.

Do you guarantee results?

Yes, if you want to be slimmer, run a faster race time or lower your blood pressure we will happily set goals and help you achieve them. If you follow the program and don’t succeed then we will give you DOUBLE your money back, show me a gym that will offer that!

What age range do you train?

Currently from the age of 14 (accompanied by an adult in the early days) to 64 years old. If you are older then please come along to up the limits. Instructors are CRB checked.

Are the classes the same as a “Gym Class”?

With most gym classes you know what your doing prior to starting. With ours you don’t know what we will be doing until you start. Each session is different and varied.

Is this not just circuit training outdoors?

Alot of “bootcamps” are run by gym instructors that do circuit training outdoors in a fixed format. With ours we move around the parks, using different locations, different equipment and different styles along with varying terrain. You wont be circuit training with us, you will be doing a proper bootcamp.

Is your timetable upto date?

The timetable is kept upto date on a weekly basis. If you are new or unsure of class times and locations please contact us as we are happy to help.
