Come rain or shine (or even snow!) we're proud of our guests giving their all on boot camp.

Champneys Springs Boot Camp Week

“When i arrived at Champneys on Monday down the long drive i didnt have a clue of that i had let myself in for. It has been a very exhiliarating, very physical experience which has been hard but i feel very rewarded to have done it. I have learn about forms of exercise to know what would be best for me to do when i leave. Also the food side of it, to realise you can eat health and not be starving, that the food you can have can be very tasty and its not just all lettuce as i used to think. What's nice is you can have a treat too. So i am now looking forward to my new life ”

“ Came to Boot Camp feeling quite nervous and anxious that i would not be able to do all the activities and that my fitness would be much lower than everyone elses. The trainers are really great at getting you to focus on your own goals and work to your own capabilities. They were really encouraging at all times. I'm leaving far more confident in what i can acheive and i am excited about what i can continue in the future - it has (despite my first anxieties) been a great experience for me! ”

“ Im not going to lie – it was a very tough week, but with encouragement from a very supportive group and dedicated instructors, we helped each other through it. I am delighted that i lost a bit of weight and 6cm from my waist in just a week. The massages, treatments and snacks were my incentive! A truly great team ”

" A great way to spend a week, plenty to do, and enjoyable pampering sessions to go with a tough exercise regime. I feel fitter and healthier and ready to face the world again. Information on nutrition was very informative and helpful. "

Zeporah Francis, August 2012

Champneys Henlow Boot Camp Week

" The Boot Camp has given me an amazing boost. I had no idea what I could do, or how long I could do it for! I am taking away a lot more than a slimmer figure - confidence, a plan for short, medium and long term goals and the knowledge that I can do it! I would have no hesitation in recommending the Boot Camp; the Boot Camp team played a massive part in me settling in and getting motivated to the point where I will now set my own faster power walking pace. "

" Before Boot Camp I don't run, jump or sweat - I do now! This hs kick started my fitness. I will eat healthily, I have found some exercises that I actually enjoy and I am not worried about going into any excercise classes now. I have kicked my caffeine addiction - an I didnt know I had one! "

" Wow what a week! Why haven’t I done this before? I expected to be challenged and the programme didn’t disappoint, but our fitness instructors Richard and Lewis made it enjoyable. They pushed us beyond out limits but supported us when we needed it and couldn’t be nicer. The biggest surprise was the quality of the food...delicious! I never felt hungry all week. Definitely doing this again! "

" It has been an excellent stay. Incredibly hard but very rewarding. The Champneys fitness team pitched it at just the right level for everyone. I was encouraged, cajoled and pushed gently in the right direction. A fantastic experience that I would recommend to those who want more real changes in their life. "

" Four days of hard work, big laughs and good food. The team gave us a programme that was as varied as it was fun and provided constant support and motivation. A great taster course on different ways to fight the calories in the gym with sensible guidance and advice on nutrition and food choices. Thank you Anthony and the Springs team. "

" This was my second visit at Champneys Boot Camp and it definitely met all my expectations. I was a little nervous at the beginning but the fitness team were very welcoming. I feel a lot fitter, very healthy and have lost some weight. The group was fantastic, very positive and willing to try all activities – very friendly, supportive & fun. Loved the treatments and the food! The themed dinner nights were great. All in all, a great fitness package with lovely treatments and a very cosy room. "

" I arrived feeling tired, ill & hopelessly overweight. I left energised, with glowing skin, a great weight loss & a waist I hadn’t seen in 30 years. Nick was so motivational and very good at considering my level of fitness compared to the others. As Arnie would say....“I’ll be back”. "
