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 CLASSES?

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.
