Loved bootcamp!!!

Thanks Jake! I thoroughly enjoyed my first bootcamp session with everyone. It was challenging, but still fun with plenty of motivation/encouragement given out throughout the session. I look forward to the next one

100th Bootcamp

Today was my 100th bootcamp - I got my special 100 bootcamp T shirt and bottle of Jake Wood Prosecco!

I’ve been attending Jake’s bootcamp for just over a year and a half now and at 51 am the fittest I have ever been. I really enjoy the bootcamps as I like exercising outside and the sessions are always so fun,varied and challenging. There is a great mix of people of all ages and abilities and everyone is supportive and encouraging. Jake is an amazing trainer – he is able to push you to achieve your best without being aggressive. I have 2 periods where I was not able to attend bootcamp due to injury and a bad illness. Jake was very supportive keeping in contact and motivating me when I was able to return.

I am so proud when I look back of what I have achieved over the last 18 months – I have ran in 5 and 10K races, completed the 10k waterwipe out, and earlier this year tough mudder. I have also been increasing the distance I can run in one go and am now upto 8 miles. I have also lost some weight, toned up and am 2 dress sizes smaller. I am also regularly told how young I look!

I have also attended 3 of Jake’s bootcamp weekends – 2 days of varied exercises from early morning runs to the beach, boxercise classes, extreme obstacle courses, raft building, bootcamp workouts – all of which really pushed me to my limits – my favourite part was sit ups in the sea at 6.00am!

I have also completed climbs up Scafell, Ben Nevis and Snowden with Jake and a group of fellow bootcampers.

Jake is very good at helping you identify your next goals so that you are always improving. If he doesn’t think the goal is challenging enough he will say so!
My nest goals are to complete the Rat Race (20 miles with 200 extreme obstacles) in May 2017 and also to have run a half marathon by then. I know that I will need to increase my training over the next few months and Jake is always on hand to give advice and to check that you are onto it.

I can totally recommend Jake’s bootcamps to anyone wanting to get fit, challenge themselves and have a good time as well.

You WON'T be skipping leg day!!

I started training with Jake after 3 months of no exercise due to illness, not that I’d been massively into exercise before that. It’s safe to say my workouts previously consisted of chest and arms and cardi-NO! Since training with Jake, he’s somehow got me doing full body split days in the gym, with a real emphasis on technique and timing rather than just picking the heaviest weight up and sacrificing form.

Jake also somehow managed to get me along to an alien concept of exercising not only outdoors, but on a rainy, freezing cold, windy November evening. Bootcamps are where I’ve noticed the biggest change in my mindset…to the extent I know moan when there isn’t a 6am session on a Thursday morning.

Too many 6am bootcamps, a bootcamp weekend in Skegness in FEBUARY (including sit ups in the sea), Tough Mudder and a trip up Snowden later I’ve now gone from planning weekends drinking to planning weekends doing half marathons, marathons, Rat Races and more Tough Mudders!!

It’ll be a love hate relationship but I couldn’t recommend him more, get down to bootcamp or book some PT sessions, you won’t regret it 🙂

Highly recommend Jakes bootcamp

Jake is a top trainer and motivator and will push everybody to get the maximum effort out of them. Regardless of individual fitness level he makes it enjoyable for everybody. Every class varies so you not doing the same thing each time. Altho he pushes you to your max, the sessions are fun aswell and you can have a laugh.
Would highly recommend.

Great Bootcamp!!!

Just started this after a recommend and I'm 4 weeks in.
It is a great boot camp, Jake is very friendly and he motivates and pushes you to work harder, in a good way.
Everyone is very friendly and all are there to work hard but have fun too.
If you are looking for a boot camp, pick this one!

PT sessions

I started going to personal training with Jake just before Christmas, and it has been fabulous! Jake comes up with a wide range of exercises, taking in all your targets and adjusting the exercises for them! The exercises are frequently ones that I haven't seen anywhere else and really target areas you want to, in order to increase stamina. His sessions are great fun, and you always leave worn out and know you've done a real workout! I would recommend to everyone.

Bootcamp experience

I attended my first bootcamp session in September 2014 after being persuaded by my fiancé to give it a go, and now here I am, earnt my 100 bootcamps t-shirt.

Before I started at Jake’s bootcamp I would go to the gym but find it really hard to motivate and challenge myself, particularly after a long day at work. Bootcamp offers a variety of workouts concentrating on all areas of fitness from strength to cardio ensuring to keep me motivated and challenged, with Jake’s infectious passion for fitness being the icing on the cake (oops sorry, shouldn’t mention cake!). I attend the sessions 3 times a week, as an alternative to going to gym and it is now just a way of life and part of my weekly schedule.

Since joining bootcamp I have become much more toned, and my general fitness and endurance has improved. Last year I improved my 10k race time by 4 minutes, and am hoping to improve this again this year.

Jake has also encouraged me to set myself challenges and in Summer 2015 I completed my first 10k obstacle course, X Runner, and enjoyed it that much I entered another in Autumn 2015 with a fellow bootcamper. I also took part in a Dragonboat Race competition that Jake organised raising money for the When You Wish Upon A Star charity, and my next challenge will be Tough Mudder in May 2016.

However, I would say that the best thing about bootcamp is having the friendly competitive spirit and support of likeminded fellow bootcampers and Jake pushing you to your limits.

I would recommend anyone to try Jake’s bootcamp – trust me, you will never look back!

first time at bootcamp

It was my first time going to boot camp on Monday and I didn't know what to expect, my uncle Neil said how good it was and we should all give it a go. From the moment I started I knew jake would work us all hard with his motivation and that's what you need in order to get any benefit. Will be coming to EVERY session as I really did enjoy it.
