Lots of women feel nervous about stepping into a gym. Our bootcamp is a welcoming and fun environment for women to come along and work at their own level without judgment or embarrassment from anyone. Our fully equipped gym provides the perfect, friendly setting for you to come and explore and experiment with gym equipment to find out which exercises you enjoy the best.
We use HIIT training, circuits, boxing and weight lifting all to maximise fat burn and build strong bones and muscles. Contrary to what many women believe, weight training is the quickest way to burn fat. And there is no need to worry, bulking up muscle as a woman just doesn’t happen because we don’t have enough testosterone in our bodies to achieve that without a massive amount of extra help. Starting at age 25 the collagen levels in our bodies start to drop resulting in slow muscle wastage and bone weakening over time. This really starts to accelerate by age 40 and continues on into the menopause and beyond. The great news is that resistance training like we do in bootcamp can prevent this from happening.
The aim of our class is to build strong, capable women at the same time as having fun with no worries about anyone feeling self-conscious or risking injury to joints or their pelvic health.
Bootcamp Class Structure & Content
Our bootcamp women’s fitness classes are held in a fully equipped gym close to Worthing mainline station. Anyone who wishes to be weighed comes a few minutes early to do this before class. Everyone’s weights and measurements are tracked over time if they wish. Most women who come are dropping their children at school or nursery before coming along, so we start as soon everyone has arrived.
The class content is different each week. It is kept as varied as possible to keep everyone motivated. There are no synchronised coordinated movements required. All the women work at their own pace, working to their own level of fitness.
For many mums, the additional stress and weight of carrying a baby and/or giving birth will have left them with Pelvic Floor Weakness [click through to pelvic floor exercise page] which particularly becomes an issue when doing exercise. As most of the women who come to bootcamp are mums, we keep the exercises low impact to avoid worsening their pelvic floor. We always teach correct exercise technique to avoid prolapse or stress incontinence, which is vital for all women who have any children or are over 35. If you are a woman who suffers/has suffered from a prolapse or incontinence in any way, we strongly recommend attending our Holistic Core Restore Every Woman Course before starting any exercise classes as this teaches you correct technique to prevent these issues in the future.
