Birth of Bath Bootcamp

Time flies when you are having fitness fun!

It’s 9 years this month since I started putting everything in place to begin Bath’s original outdoor bootcamp back in January 2009.

When I look back at the very basic video I made of me on a freezing cold windy day in a park it makes me smile 🙂

Plank rotations … vintage style 🙂

Back then my mobile phone just made phone calls and texts – now I pretty much run my business from my phone.

Technology and life moves on which is why I changed the name to Zest Bootcamp several years ago when we were also running classes in other villages outside of Bath.

For a variety of reasons I kept the Zest Bootcamp brand even though we are now just based in Bath and today I’m excited to share our brand new video which not only shows you what we do at our friendly, fresh-air fitness classes but also showcases beautiful Bath from the sky.

Despite several changes over the years at Zest Bootcamp, one thing that hasn’t changed is my passion to help more people to feel great through regular exercise, healthy eating and other lifestyle changes.

I’m pretty sure most of you know that I was an overweight, asthmatic, unhealthy, non-exerciser who changed career 19 years ago to become a health and fitness coach.

With this in mind I’d love to offer you the chance to come to a trial week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) at our 45 minute classes – either 6.30am, 9.30am or 6.15pm for just £10. This is exactly what most of our lovely “zesties” did and they loved it so much they stayed (some for 7 years so far!).

After your trial week you are free to go if you don’t think it’s for you but if you can see that it is a way for you to incorporate regular exercise into your life then I’d love to offer you a special anniversary gift.

Join our December and January bootcamp for just £179* in total plus get a complimentary Zest Bootcamp water bottle and mini rucksack package worth £16. This offers you a huge saving but more importantly it offers you peace of mind knowing that after the Christmas and New Year festivities are over you have a plan in place and you can’t make excuses! …. excuses don’t get results.

There are only a few  special offer spaces in each of our classes so I’d sign up for a trial week asap if you don’t want to miss out – complete your name and email at www.zestbootcamp.co.uk

Once you are registered drop me a message with the word “9thoffer” so I know to give you this special gift as it’s open first for my email followers and blog readers and spaces will fill up fast.

I’ve so busy with lots of new Zest Bootcamp members (aka “zesties”) over the last few months, as well as planning some exciting things for 2018 including my first retreat, I just realised that I hadn’t blogged here for ages!

If you are following me on Instagram or Facebook then I’m sure you will have seen what we have been up to in Bath 🙂

The Zest Water bottle has travelled far and wide, including a trip to the Grand Canyon  which you can see by clicking  HERE

And not quite as impressive but equally beautiful it went up Glastonbury Tor 🙂

This week one of our lovely members turned 70 so as she is officially our most senior Zestie  she deserved some beautiful flowers.

Angelika is a great role model of how important it is to look after your own health and fitness because no-one is going to do it for you. Also she has such a positive mental attitude that is very admirable and lesson to us all.

So yesterday I was in conversation with a Zest Bootcamp member about her struggles to eat healthily and I recorded this video to share my suggestion to her that hopefully will also help you.

I hope that helps and if you need another reason to start a regular exercise programme then click here to read an article about how it is the ultimate way to not only beat disease but also depression. This is quite relevant given that it was International Mental Health Awareness day this week.

Sleep is a vital part of helping depression and anxiety so incase you missed my blog post please click here for my top tips on how to get better sleep and why it is so vital for different aspects of our health. SLEEP BLOG POST

Have a great day and if you’d like to join us a Zest Bootcamp for a trial week the next one starts October 23rd. Register your interest by completing your name and email here or drop me a message if you have any questions.

I’m hoping that now you have seen Angelika at 70, you won’t think you are too old!

Finally, if you haven’t yet downloaded your f.ree copy of my 10 minute CORE WORKOUT then click here to grab a copy – it really will tone and tighten that midriff!

Until next time
