My fitness had increased significantly and I had lost over 10 stone when I first tried a Boot Camp session. I turned up on a dark, cold February evening feeling apprehensive as I knew I had already make good progress with my fitness but I was still not capable of running any distance at speed.
Being nearly 25 stone I was going to be engaging in what I thought would be an unrelenting hard core hour of extreme endurance leaving me feeling ostracised from the group and unable to complete the session. I couldn’t have been further from the reality. At the Braintree Boot Camp I was immediately welcomed by the group who continued to provide encouragement and support throughout the session which at the end left me feeling quite moved. The session started with a warmup run and stretches followed by the group being split into teams. There was a definite feeling of comradery and healthy competition between the teams but it was structured in such a way that each member was able to work at the best of their ability with expert guidance and encouragement from the instructor. Where as I was the least fittest person there and working in part of a team I didn’t feel that I was holding anyone back and it was definitely something I wanted to do again.
A few weeks went by and I returned to the bootcamp in earnest and have not looked back. It is about 3 months since I started regularly attending and now having lost a further 4 and a half stone I look forward to meeting up with the other members each week. Being in an office all day I look forward to training outside with a great group of people who have a mixed level of fitness but a common determination to work hard and enjoy the friendly banter between members and instructor. What you get out of it is up to you but the inherent leadership of the expert instructor, diversity of sessions and varying personal challenges combined with the group comradery will leave you hooked and now at just over 20 stone it has become a core part of my training.
No matter what level of fitness you are at, you work to the best of your ability with an Instructor at hand offering advice and direction to help you progress to where you want to be or stay fit whilst working out in a controlled varied group of likeminded people.
