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, it is not uncommon, maybe a little too common, to 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.

Pre Covid we did, but because of the situation, we are unable to run child friendly sessions at the moment.
Are the classes the same as a “Gym Class”?
