Hi. My name is Wilf Harrington.
I run Ladiesfitnesscamps and the following is simply the story of how Ladiesfitnesscamps came about.
Ladiesfitnesscamps were founded by Simon Dainton back in 2008,
In 2008, out of the blue, Simonís Mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
A shock to say the least, and while those of us around her worried about her treatment and future health, she remained strong, determined not to let this disease beat her.
During those early days Simon noticed how great the ladies were at rallying round and offering their support to his Mum and one another.
As a Personal Trainer, he saw how effective this bonding was, and realised that he could do something to help his Mum's cause, while bringing together like-minded women to help and support each other in the name of fitness.
With the backing of the local press, Simon decided to run a 4 week exercise club for women in aid of Charity. The response was great and he found himself flooded with enquiries to take part!
As a result Simon and the camp raised over £1,000 for Cancer Research, while providing a fresh and rewarding exercise experience that both the girls.
This event made Simon realise just how effective and powerful exercise could be when girls have the social support of each other. Since then Simon and myself since 2009 have been passionate about helping even more women achieve their fitness goals, by developing Ladies-Only Camps in Guidford and the surrounding areas.
8 years on and the good news is that Simonís Mum is still winning the battle against Cancer, and we have grown from strength to strength offering a camp experience we believe not quite like any other.
With strength and determination, any obstacle can be conquered, and I'd like to think that Ladies Fitness Camps can help many women beat feelings of negative body image, increase their health & fitness levels while boosting their confidence too.
If you try one of our Camps I truly believe you'll experience these benefits for yourself too.
Here's to YOU looking, feeling GREAT!
Our approach to 'Boot Camps' is different to many of the fitness classes you may have tried. We don't just bunch you up into a huge group and lose you in the crowd.
Instead I like to take a personal approach, making sure you fit in from the start. I will introduce you to other members, give you an 'exercise buddy', and ensure that you're comfortable with the exercises and challenges presented.
I screen you for any injuries or joint problems, and adapt the session as needed to suit your level of fitness and ability. Of course, if you're already fit, I'll push you, but our Camps are not designed to 'break' you!
Members can be sure that all workouts,challenges and circuits are out together with thought and purpose. I always want to give you the highest standard of training, and the latest, most effective approach to exercise, designed to get you fit and achieve your desired results both sustainably and quickly.
At Camp we believe in training our members with good humour, professionalism and patience. We want all members to work hard and push themselves that little bit further, but still feel like this is an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Otherwise there's no point in attending is there?
We definitely DON'T believe in the 'Sergeant Major' approach, barking orders and reminding you of your physical failings. That's not our style. It doesn't work for us, and it's never worked for our clients.
No two sessions are ever exactly the same, so you're always kept on your toes, wondering what your next session has in store!
In fact, we're so confident of our methods, standard of service and your Camp experience that we give you a FREE Trial Pass to come along and put us to the test. We're quietly confident that once you've tried us, you'll be keen to sign up for our 4 week Programme.
Give us a go and see for yourself!
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our Camps very soon...
I'm always on the lookout for fresh talent to run our Camps, either as holiday cover or fronting a new Camp location. If you're passionate about fitness, have experience of working with groups, and can be a great motivator, we want to hear from you!
