As the camp sizes are smaller (between 14–16 people), trainers have plenty of scope to get to know you as an individual and give you personal advice and support. One-on-one time means that you can be pushed to stretch your boundaries, while working within your physical limits.
You will also have contact time with head trainers Dan and Caroline, who share their training tips and nutritional advice. Many feel inspired by their passion and dedication to your health and fitness. On the UK boot camp holidays and weight-loss holidays, you will have a full one-to-one consultation to develop an action plan to take home with you.
While Dan, a co-founder of Northern Bootcamp, has 13 years of military experience as a physical training instructor, the style we roll with is most certainly non-military. The trainers will not shout and scream at you and give you press-ups every time you speak.
However, this does not mean that Northern Bootcamp is an ‘easy’ camp. It is tailored and adapted so that you will be massively encouraged to work at a pace that is suitable for you. If you need pushing harder, we will do this by increasing the intensity and providing the necessary support.
When we recognise that something isn’t working for you, we will change the exercise to ensure you can still take part and remain active.
The culture of Northern Bootcamp is relaxed. The programme is full and the intensity of the sessions is often high, but we want you to relax post-session and enjoy the whole experience. We do keep you busy, so there is not a great deal of time to chill out during the day, but we have optional sessions in the evening so you can take time out.
Our trainers are very open, approachable and dedicated to your success on camp. They have years of experience in fitness training and group management, so are adept in identifying points where changes can be made. This means that your wellbeing is professionally managed at all times.
Any images of boot camp dormitories and plastic mattresses can be banished immediately: our new boot camp venue is 5-star!
We have a fantastic chill-out room, a comfortable stretching room, a campers’ kitchen and dining area, high-quality beds, and luxurious bathrooms—you can see why the phrase boot camp may seem out of place.
The sleeping arrangements are flexible, so that you can choose the best option to suit your budget and your needs. You will have the option of a shared 4-bed room, a twin room, a double or a private en suite—all at great-value prices.
The camp menu is designed by our very own nutritionist and delivered with such love and passion it is not surprising that 98% of campers rate the quality of the food as excellent. All ingredients are locally sourced (where possible) and as fresh as they can be, often home-grown and more importantly, cooked perfectly.
You will eat 3 meals and 2 snacks per day. The portion size is controlled and the menu is set and aligned to the exercise sessions that you will take part in each day. You can rest assured that you will not be starved and that you will get enough energy to ensure you can participate fully in each session. We also believe that your experience on camp should be enjoyable and that includes the meals that you eat.
We make sure the portion sizes are sufficient to be sustainable back in the real world and you can take away ideas and recipes to help you start cooking. If you have any dietary requirements, or even distinct dislikes, we can usually cater for them.
Every day on boot camp is an adventure; we make sure that the schedule is full, varied and interesting. Variety is the spice of life, but it is also the key to successful fitness and weight loss. At boot camp, the training team are clued up on all of the latest fitness evidence so that they deliver the most effective sessions for you as an individual.
The trainers are experts in their field, in cardio sessions, interval training, kettlebell classes, boxing tuition, spinning, Pilates, circuit training, core stability workouts, Swiss ball classes, strength sessions and more. As well as the effective fitness sessions, at Northern Bootcamp we incorporate unique and more adventurous exercises into the programme.
These outdoor activities all operate under our ‘challenge by choice’ policy, so you will not be forced to take part. However, if you do choose to participate, you could find yourself canoeing down a river, abseiling over a cliff, mountain biking in a forest, surfing a wave in the sea, firing arrows, learning to read a map while running, or hiking up the Cheviot Hills. You will have some fantastic opportunities to focus not only on fitness but self-discovery and enjoyment too.
The programme for each camp is not disclosed and the reason is not to keep you in the dark, it is simply because it changes regularly. We have more flexibility than most, because of the diversity in the instructors skill set and we can therefore adapt the programme to suit the weather, the group and any other factors that come into play.
With more and more boot camps popping up, how do you know which one offers the best value for money? At Northern Bootcamp, we offer extremely competitive boot camp prices. We are 100% confident in our product and the fact that we get over 60% of campers coming back to us proves that we are doing things right.
The Northern Bootcamp team are dedicated to delivering the highest standards of training in every single session. The programme is more diverse than any other, meaning you will work all muscle groups in your body effectively and gain maximum benefit from your time with us.
You will also have opportunities to try adventure activities that as a standalone activity can cost up to £50. The sessions are unique, designed around camper needs, with exercise often hidden so that you can work hard without even realising it. The fun-loving nature of the team ensures the atmosphere on camp is relaxed and happy and sessions are delivered in a positive manner.
While it is hard work, we do want and expect you to enjoy your boot camp experience too. The accommodation is value in itself: the chance to visit such a stunning environment and work out on Bamburgh Beach is one of the highlights for many of our returning campers. We do not stay onsite all day; you will visit many of the areas attractions, including Holy Island, the Cheviot Hills, miles of the untouched beaches and also ancient forests.
