I met Steve from Fitlife Project in September 2014 I had two children and had done little or no exercise after having them. After lots of nagging from my friends I finally joined a bootcamp session and I loved it. I found Steve really supportive, encouraging and helpful and 13 months later I still do bootcamp 3 times a week. I have also completed the Fitlife fat loss program and have managed to lose and keep off 28lbs (12.5kg) as well as completing various races including the Oxford 1/2 marathon. I am looking forward to the gym opening so I can progress even further and try out some of the new classes.

If you haven’t experienced a bootcamp session – you need to. A gentle warm up is the simple introduction. “Only 40 more minutes?” you say quietly to yourself. Because you’ve done other exercise classes of an hour or more – this will be piece of cake!
Then Steve starts properly. A quick explanation of the session and then you’re into it. The explanation is needed not because bootcamp is complicated, but because every session is different. In two years, I’ve never done the same session. Even after those two years, stupidly you still think “oh, this will be an easy one”. It never is!
But don’t be put off, the only reason it is never easy is because you push yourself. You may count reps, you may be challenging a friend or Steve is just making you want to drive yourself. Whatever it is, you are working as hard as you can, so you are always achieving, whatever anyone else is doing.
Luckily, those 40 minutes come round quickly, so it is short, but you know you’ve done it. No rests, little recovery, so sharp as well.
Try it – for a 54 year old fat boy – it works!

I have worked with Fitlife for nearly a year, it has simply been life changing. Adapted to develop me and my disabilities, I have become a fitter and more confident person. Come and join the new gym in Haddenham and change your life too.

Fitlife’s bootcamp is fantastic…its great being outside and every session is different. I feel so much fitter and stronger since I started attending, and the monday and friday sessions have become an important part of my week! The idea of a new gym in Haddenham is very exciting and I’m sure it will be a huge success.
