We were thrilled to launch our first Boot Camp on Saturday! We were even more thrilled to receive a great turn out on the day! It confirmed our suspicions...there is a huge interest in people willing to get into shape and peak fitness, and being able to that whilst exercising in our magnificent surroundings was the cherry on top!
It was wonderful to see all the participants out in the grounds of the Hotel - it made it that little more unique and special. It's not your average gym setting by any means!
The Bootcamp class is run by Michael Shuttleworth and Tommy Kotrla. Here's a little more about us...!
Michael Shuttleworth is a personal trainer who gained a Level 3 personal trainer and nutritionist diploma whilst working at Ashdown Park. He is a keen sportsman and has played various sports as well as being a member of the Sussex rugby and athletics team. His main sport however was football where he played for Sussex, Southampton and eventually at Chelsea for a few months. Sadly, injury put an end to his football career but, not one to admit defeat, he went on to gain a Level 2 FA coaching badge. Michael offers advice on nutrition as well as including various techniques and equipment within his personal training sessions to make it fun at the same time as achieving your fitness goals.
Tommy Kotrla has been involved in sports all his life. He started boxing at the age of 15 and his professional boxing career lasted 17 years, before starting work as a trainer. He has trained a diverse range of people from professional boxers and celebrities to people who just want to get fitter, build confidence and lose weight. During his boxing career he took part in 282 contests, of which he won 229! He was also a member of the national Czech team for two years. In his training sessions he hopes to motivate and inspire people and build their confidence, taking you from where you are to where you want to be.
We are still hoping to gain more bootcamp participants to join us, so if you want to lose a few pounds and have a fun time doing it, feel free to contact us on 01342 820254.
Thanks to those who joined us in our first session and we look forward to seeing you all next time!
