Bootcamp is about much more than fitting into those skinny jeans. Regular bootcampers feel the benefits of a healthier lifestyle; they become stronger, fitter, slimmer and have more energy. Sessions are ideal stress-busters, too, so it stands to reason that there are lots of firms in the city offering workouts for London ladies.
Mark R Fitness bootcamps includes work on strength, conditioning, boxing training and nutritional guidance to help clients achieve a healthier lifestyle and drop a clothing size or two. They use high-intensity interval-based conditioning routines, speed, agility and boxing drills to get the women's heart rates up to the desired levels for maximum fat burn along with functional body weight strength and core work, in a 45-minute fast fat blast.
Ariel Ricci, a 31 year old trainee barrister, has lost 35 pounds since October. ''Although the sessions are called "boot camp", it isn't as scary as it might sound, Mark is always encouraging and supportive and works on the basis of positive reinforcement to get the best out of clients,” she said.
Sessions are currently held at 7.40am Monday, Wednesday and Friday - see www.markrfitness.com for more details.
