We are also not just a bootcamp, as we appreciate that people also need a bit of time out, and its also a holiday too! This is why our day is broken up to give you the best of both worlds. In a typical day you can expect to have a wake up workout followed by breakfast, a healthy living workshop, and a programme of fitness sessions up until lunch time. The afternoon is then free time giving everyone the chance to relax, soak up the rays, or head out to explore the area. Come 5pm and its cooled down so it is the perfect chance to finish the day with a few more sessions. Evening is a chance for everyone for relax and enjoy the night. On the self-catering bootcamp we arrange optional BBQ nights, evenings out to local Portuguese restaurants and the beautiful Old Town, and on the All Inclusive bootcamp we have our chef who provides all the meals and we eat together at the venue.

The Algarve is a fabulous place and is a great place to be active too. We also offer additional excursions such as an afternoon out to Vilamoura, cycling tours, and paddleboarding/surfing, making your bootcamp experience with us a truly memorable one

All this from only £499pp – less than half the price of our competitors. We have spaces available for October and we just need £99 deposit to book this, spaces are limited so don’t delay! Book Now

Portugal Bootcamp 2018

We are pleased to announce that we will be adding an All Inclusive Bootcamp to our already popular Self -Catering Bootcamp Retreat next year in Portugal!


The set up of the week will be the same in terms of fitness sessions and healthy workshops, with the main differences being the venue and the All Inclusive option


The Venue

With the self catering bootcamp taking place in a set of apartments, which is perfectly suited to this type of bootcamp as each apartment has its own kitchen, we needed to change this to suit the needs of the new bootcamp. We have decided that a luxury villa in Albufeira is the perfect venue, with exceptional lounge rooms and bedrooms accommodating both twin and single supplemency. It also has a fantastic dining area both inside and outside where we will be eating together, and stunning gardens and a swimming pool. It really is the place where you can switch off, focus on yourself, and have a fantastic week away from everything


All Inclusive

We will be taking our Chef over from the UK – and they will be responsible for creating all of the meals/snacks ready for everybody at set times throughout the day. This will enable all the meals are fresh and healthy, and created to help you achieve your goals. Our Chef has over 15 years experience in the UK and is also involved with healthy eating campaigns too, which makes him a perfect fit for the bootcamp.


There are limited spaces as we are keeping the numbers to approximately 10 people – so Book Now for only £99 deposit to avoid losing out on a place!

Bootcamp Kit List

Bootcamp Kit List


Packing for your Bootcamp can be a bit of a nightmare and it depends on a number of things, especially the weather and the type of Bootcamp you are going too. I guarantee that your kit list will be different if you were going to Portugal or Spain in May than if you were going to Manchester in December. Most companies will provide you with a general kit list, but to help you along (and for our boot camps too) then here is a typical guideline


The essential kit list for any Bootcamp:

  • A decent pair of trainers – make sure these have been worn in (I tend to get mine from Sports Direct – you don’t need to spend a fortune)
  • Gym kit – plan for both inside and outside and be sure to pack a few t shirts, shorts, jogging bottoms, and sweatshirt/hooded top
  • Loungewear for the evening
  • Smart wear for the evening if you are planning on eating out
  • Underwear and socks
  • Toiletries
  • Hairdryer
  • Medications
  • Water Bottle/hydration bag
  • Rucksack (most boot camps tend to do a walk)
  • Blister packs
  • Hiking boots (check to see if a walk is included – on our Mount Snowdon and Scafell Pike walk these are essential)
  • Jacket (light waterproof would be ideal)
  • Gloves/hat in winter
  • Swimsuit (Bootcamp retreats that have pool/spa access – like our Manchester)


Additional Kit for Bootcamp’s in Europe (may also need for UK if we have a heat wave)


  • Swimsuit/beach towel
  • Sun cream (high factor – I use factor 50, exercising with sunburn is not pleasant)
  • Sports Sunglasses and cap
  • Flip flops



What is a Fitness Holiday?

If you are looking to increase fitness, lose weight, and have a holiday in the process, then a fitness holiday might be for you! This combines your traditional holiday with health & fitness elements, ensuring that you don’t come back home heavier than when you went and lose all the good work you have done prior to your trip


You may be worried that all you will be doing is working out and not actually enjoying the environment. This depends on what bootcamp you choose to attend. Some retreats tend to be very military style, with exercise throughout the day and no real time off for yourself, with a solid structure – whereas others offer a more relaxed approach. Take our Portugal Bootcamp for example, whilst still doing a fantastic 30+ hours of fitness sessions throughout the week, you also have every afternoon free to relax, we organise outings into the old town of Albufeira in the evenings, and we also have a last day trip out too – now does that sound more like a holiday or a fitness bootcamp? Combine this with spending time with a great bunch of ladies all looking for the same thing then you really do have the perfect combination of fun and healthy living.

The best thing to do if you are looking for a bootcamp abroad is to do your research, check out reviews, pictures, and even speak to people who have been onto them to see what it was like and whether it would be suitable for you (click here for our pictures from previous). These types of bootcamps run throughout the World with the most popular ones being in Europe – Spain and Portugal mainly. Don’t forget to check the price too, as the majority are very expensive and a little bit of a rip off to be honest – some can cost in the region of £1500 without flights (Oh yeah don’t forget ours are only £449 self catering and £799 All Inclusive)


Whichever option you choose, you will be sure to have a fantastic time and gain a healthy lifestyle as a result of it!
