The classes are run in various parks in Bristol and in all weathers so dont be surprised if you get a bit wet and muddy! No shouting, swearing or screaming instructiors, just encouragment, motivation and enthusiasm from Dave.

Sessions are designed to focus on all the major muscle groups as well as working your heart and lungs. Classes are suitable for all fitness levels and ages so whether your a beginner or an exercise veteran you wont feel out of place.

Here are some kind words from previous attendees...

"I am not built for fitness in any shape or form however this bootcamp really does fit all sizes! I was made to feel very welcome and all abilities were catered for. Depsite the early starts out breaks of laughter were heard and we all battled on with a huge variety of Dave's evil tasks......did I mention the sledge hammer and tyres?! It has really boosted my own fitness and have managed to lose the best part of 21 lbs in 4 weeks! No matter what your fitness level have a go, you will feel so much better for it, meet some great people and get to wield a sledge hammer!!" Emily

"I signed up for the Early Bird Bootcamp in September 10 and haven't regretted it for a minute. I even started to look forward to the 6.30am starts - and even more so to that feeling of achievement when you realise you've done a serious work out before most people have crawled out of bed. The sessions are varied and challenging but suitable for any level of fitness. Dave is really good at encouraging you to push yourself further and further...but manages to do it in a way that makes you smile through the pain!" Laura

Bleep Test - How Aerobically Fit Are You?

It involves continuously running between two lines 20m apart in time to recorded beeps. After approx 1 minute you move up to the next level where the length of time between each beep reduces which results in you having to increase your running speed to reach the line.

Your involvement in the test ends when you are unable to reach the line on 3 consecutive attempts.

The level you reach can be used to measure your current aerobic fitness level.

We will warm up and stretch before the test begins.

Test costs only £5. Get in touch to find out more and register your place at the next one.
