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
