The best of both worlds – the benefits of a personal trainer with the motivation of a group…
Our FUNctional Fitness group training sessions combine the best of group exercise with personal instruction from highly qualified instructors, giving you the fun and motivation of working with a small group of like-minded individuals.
These classes were formerly known as Boot Camp Bude but we feel that some people may be put off by the term ‘bootcamp’ as it implied ‘being shouted at’ and ‘beasting’! Our approach is to keep the group size manageable so you get the motivation of working with a group but the individual coaching of your own PT. Our classes cater for all abilities and are about personal achievement although we can shout at you if you wish!
Each FUNctional Fitness session is different, with exercises ranging from boxing to skipping, resistance bands, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), Tabata, cardio, kettle bells, medicine balls, battle rope, tyres, body weight exercises plus a whole lot more. The toys might change but the outcome is the same; a full body workout with a guaranteed EPOC to burn fat for up to 48 hours afterwards.
We use techniques derived from:
BOOTCAMP Traditional group exercises using a range of equipment to keep the sessions varied and fire up all the muscle groups.
TRAINING FOR WARRIORS Specifically designed exercises to develop muscular strength and mental fortitude.
All the sessions are designed to develop skills, flexibility, strength and endurance. Each class is a full body workout and, each exercise can be adapted to suit each individual ie either made easier or harder or modified if you have any injury or pre-existing condition.
Our overall aim is to help our members become fitter, stronger and leaner while still having fun!
The sessions can be the foundation of your regular exercise regime or they can be used to support your cross training for other sports such as surfing, rugby, tennis and football etc.
For optimum effectiveness, we would recommend committing to 3 classes per week. However, if this is not possible, people can ‘drop-in’. Please note that as sessions are planned around the group members all sessions must be pre-booked.
Sessions are held outdoors all year round so we can gain the additional benefits of working in the fresh air. From Easter to October, we use our own training field outside of Stratton and over Winter we meet in central Bude.
Beginners are ‘buddied up’ with Tina (who is also a bootcamp coach) until you are fully comfortable with all the exercises.
Please ring Paul on 0780 0780 039 to book your first session or for an informal chat to discuss your needs.
Don’t forget to bring some water, a hand towel and a mat if desired – all other equipment is supplied.

Sessions are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 6-7pm.
