Forest Bootcamp is back for 2023!
If you want to get stronger, fitter and healthier, while in a stunning forest environment, then Forest Bootcamp is for you! It will work your heart and lungs and give almost every muscle in your body a workout. The 45 minute session will involve a warm-up and cool-down, bodyweight exercises, running, stretching, relays, and exercises/challenges with a partner.
The first thing you might think of when you hear the word ‘Bootcamp’ is a military style PT shouting at you while you do 50 press ups. Please don’t let that put you off as that’s not me…
Knowing when to push you in an effort to give you your desired results, but also knowing when to hold back and give you a break, I will listen to you and treat you as an individual. I will keep you continuously progressing both mentally and physically.
Okeford Hill Bike Park is the venue for the class. I will meet you at the top by the entrance (parking available). The class will start with a gentle jog and warm up, before you go through drills and exercises to improve your cardiovascular fitness and full body strength. Think group training, think the great outdoors (whatever the weather!), think fun and think challenging. By 9am on a Saturday morning your endorphins will be flowing as you walk back to your car, surrounded by spectacular views.
All levels of fitness are welcome, although it will be more tailored to beginners – we can all have fun whilst exercising together.
This is a 6 week course.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
As sessions are all outdoors, you should dress appropriately. Ideally, you should layer your clothing so that you can remove outer layers as you warm up. Trainers suitable for running are vital.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Always bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated because even on colder mornings you can lose a lot of fluid from breathing out.
IS IT REALLY FOR ME?
These sessions are ideal if you don’t like the idea of being stuck inside in the gym. They give you the opportunity to break away from a routine of either no exercise or simply going through the motions with your usual session. Add to this mix Rachel’s motivational qualities, the camaraderie of group training and the refreshing nature of working out next to nature, and you have all the ingredients for a challenging fitness programme that can elevate your fitness to a much higher level than you could achieve alone.
