Next Meetup

Evening Boot Camp with Bournemouth and Poole Wellness Centre - with Ian
You do not have to be fit to start. But you have to start to get fit! We meet in the car park by the Durley Chine Harvester at Durley Chine Road BH2 5JF at 18.45 each Thursday and Monday whatever the weather. It is run a bit like a cross between a military boot camp and a school playground, ensuring everybody gets a good workout REGARDLESS of fitness level. The emphasis is on working hard and having a giggle while we do it. We vary it each week but we include body weight exercises and partner exercises for all muscle groups with games,competition, and races thrown in. Each session costs £3.00 but your taster session is free. As you would probably expect, political correctness is absent along with sympathy, but you do get abuse for free. The objective is to finish with people knackered but smiling. it is a world of difference from beasting yourself in front of the TV or in a sweaty gym. A by product is that it creates community spirit and people find training buddies for the other days of the week. Remember to bring some water for during the activity and a protein snack for after the session. Dress for the weather, bearing in mind we get warm very quickly. It is not a fashion show, dark scruffs are ok, (we sometimes get dirty or sandy) . A head torch on dark evenings would be good but not essential. A positive attitude and a sense of humour is essential however! We have a rule of no BMW’s (No bitching no moaning and no whining) Another stipulation is absolutely, definitely, NO negativity. Cant is something you do to wine. Infringement of these rules brings an instant award of burpees for all. After the session we have a social in the Libertine pub in Westbourne on a Thursday so a towel , dosh and a warm top for after the session is a good idea. I hope to see you there, please RSVP to let me know if you are coming, it makes it easier for planning activities. My Mobile number is[masked]. Please arrive for 0555 so we can start at 0600 sharp and finish by 0700 Click link below to join "Lets be Social" Face Book Page.
