If you’re wondering why there’s a new energised feeling among the residents of Kensington and Facreton – they’ve been to Boot Camp!

Shaun Engel is the man behind this new move in the area who explained that twice a week the community of Kensington/Factreton come together at the Kensington Civic Centre to train.

“This is no ordinary workout plan,” he says. “Be prepared to jump, hop and skip your way to a better body and a healthy mind as the coaches put you through your paces. If it’s burning, it’s working, and after a boot camp session you’ll feel energised to take on any challenge.

“At first it will be hard but as you progress your smile will get wider and wider seeing the muscle gains or weight losses when you admire yourself in the mirror.”

He further explained that the camp, which is hosted on Mondays and Thursday from 19:00 to 20:00, is for anyone, all you have to do is show up, bring your energy and leave the bad attitudes at the door.

“Everything you need is provided (mats, steps, home-made kettle bells and lightweights) to get you on the right track of success. The journey is not easy but the highly motivated inspiring coaches are on hand to help with your goals.”

The training sessions are split into a four-week programme, two indoor workouts and one optional outdoor workout a week.

At the beginning and end of each four-week programme there is a weigh-in in order for you to track your progress. The next cycle will be starting on Thursday 5 May.

“Boot Camp is not just about fitness; it also promotes a healthy lifestyle,” concludes Engel.
