Trimmer You is Multi Award Winning Residential Boot Camp operating in UK and Spain

A Luxury Award Winning Boot Camp

A Typical Day

At Trimmer You we make sure that each day is different. This keeps things interesting and entertaining and more important it keeps you keen and motivated. All our boot camps are designed for all ability level too which means you will be able to exercise within your limits and our staff will be there to motivate and encourage you so you all get the best possible results from your stay.

We often get asked for a weekly schedule and time table but ask yourself ‘is it better to know what’s in the program or not?’ The answer is not and for this simple reason! If you knew what activities are coming and you think it is something you can’t do or wouldn’t enjoy, then you are more likely to sit it out! It is amazing how many ladies we see every year who enjoy all the activities they thought they wouldn’t.

That being said though, it is always nice to see and hear what someone else has done on one of our boot camps. Please find below a full days schedule and activities in the eyes and words of one our our previous clients.

DAY 4 OF BOOT CAMP

“Amanda’s Diary – Easter 2018”

0640 am

Morning Session – After sleeping straight through the night for the first time in years, we all had to be on ready on time for a  7am start.  I start the day with a black coffee the caffeine is just what I need. I am so glad coffee is allowed in the mornings. After falling-out my breakfast choice of either banana porridge with toasted hazelnuts and honey or poached eggs with smoked salmon and asparagus. ( I go for the porridge)  I prepare myself for the fasted cardio session that lies ahead. Water bootle full lets do this!!!!!

7 am – 8 am

Fasted cardio starts starts with a gradual warm up with a brisk walk  followed by mobility and then a gradual increase in activity and some rather strange flexibility exercises that cause a few giggles and groans. As the layers start to come off Wez our super positive trainer explains the session to us and we’re paired up for a running session. We’re reminded of the principles of running and the importance of posing, chin pocket, dog pooh off your shoe and mid foot striking and just like that we all look like Usain Bolt The session begins. It’s apparent that despite all our varying fitness levels, everyone is giving 100% with a smile on their faces.

8 am – 9 am
(Breakfast)

Elated at completing an hour of exercise after being over 12 hours fasted and after being told of the fat we have  of the fat have been torching. I can smell breakfast being prepared inside whilst we stretch off, which is making me feel really hungry. The banana porridge is awesome made with Almond milk and super tasty hazelnuts with honey. I noticed that I wasn’t the only one that wolfed my food down. I’m actually shocked at how much you begin to appreciate the flavour of the food here. Despite the portion size, I feel ready to get the next session done.

9 am – 1030 am

The one hour break flies by and we are straight into the second session of the morning which is High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) TABATA with Jonny. The music starts and after a fun warm up, we work through over twenty exercises working for a 20 second burst followed by a short 10 second rest. The session is 50 minutes long but is over in a matter of no time. All the exercises are demonstrated clearly and there are always easier options if you are struggling. Everyone is buzzing at the end of the session and ready for their snack.

1030 am – 11 am
(Snack)

We’re only half way through the morning at this point and it seems like we’ve been up for much longer. Our snack this morning is a delicious peanut butter cookie the chefs secret recipe!!!!! Quite a little treat as it turns out, as it was delicious, but there wasn’t much time to savour the flavour as we were in all eager to know what the Fight Club meant on the daily plan on the white board?????

1100 am – 1200 pm

Since we had done quite a lot of running this morning, Les had a boxing session for us. Our legs we’re really aching and tired now, but the next session meant that I could rest them for the time being. It’s amazing how much of a buzz you get from venting your aggression during these sessions. Les kept the session challenging and yet achievable, whilst at the same time invigorating and more importantly ‘FUN’.

1200 pm – 1330 pm
(Lunch)

Lunch was a Mezze, falfafel spinach and feta filo pastry, green olive tapenade, tomato salad with yoghurt and mint. Once again, you couldn’t hear a sound around the table as we devoured our well-earned calories as they are named on the white board which is beginning to run my life. I must admit the portion size was an  issue at the start of the week, but I found that you begin to realise that you only need to eat little; but often. The way I’m feeling today I might book in for a massage tonight. Some of the other ladies have gone for a quick snooze a dangerous game . I find that it’s harder to get restarted again if you do that it’s a nice time to chill out for a while in the lounge until it all starts again. The wifi allows me to stay in touch with the family and spend too much time on social media.

1330 pm – 1500 pm

The location of this venue is stunning who knew Mid Wales was so beautiful. The hike after lunch is a tough 90 minute hike that takes us up to the top of a hill that seems to never end. The climb is worth the it though the view from the top is fantastic. The hike is great for getting to know the other ladies on the camp. The trainers keep everyone working hard on the hike managing the fitness levels amongst the group, we are reminded of the calorie count for the day and that the walks can burn up to 700kcals due to the inclines!

1500 pm – 1530 pm
(Snack)

I really enjoy the hike straight after lunch as you find the energy levels are a little low after the break, but after being out in the fresh air I feel energised for the final part of the day. ,Its chargrilled pineapple and chilli, I’m not really much of a fan of pineapple but I’m surprised at the fact that if you’re really peckish; a small treat is enough to take the hunger pangs away and that I like pineapple warm.

1530 pm – 1700 pm

This final session was power pilates with Wez. I have never done pilates before and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. Wez coached us through breathing techniques and I felt much better body awareness at the end of the session. We finished the day with a stretch and relax session. Much needed after all this exercise. We finish with a final meditation session where Wez takes us all to his personal beach which I loved, a great end to a fab day.

1700 pm – 1830 pm
(Dinner)

My massage is booked at 7pm and I feel completely drained. Tonight’s dinner is a lentil and chick pea curry with saffron cauliflower rice, delicious! The ladies are still in high spirits and are looking forward to the evening meal and massages. You can sense the relief on everyone’s faces that the day is nearly over. We sit around in the evenings after the meal discussing highs and lows of the day and what we would be eating at home!

1900 pm – 2000 pm

I’ve opted for the relaxation route tonight, although my muscles (especially my legs) are feeling the effects of all the activity from today. The masseuse Andy has assured me that I’ll be right as rain after the treatment. It’s a strange sensation having someone causing you more pain than you can take all in order to make you feel better. Despite the ensuing torture, I actually feel much more supple than I did beforehand. Money well spent.

2030 pm- 2100 pm

I Phoned home and spoke to my husband. He is  really missing me and it’s at this time of the day you really do doubt yourself seeing the week out. You need the support of friends and family, but its difficult getting on with the week without having a few emotional outburst. I’m sure I’m not the only one here that feels the odd time where you want to throw the towel in but you can start to see your body changing by this point which makes it all worth while. I’ve just had a lovely hot shower and climbed into my enormous bed and wrapped my arms around the pillow for another nights slumber. I am secretly starting to enjoy boot camp now and can’t wait to start tomorrow.
