What is Bootcamp?
Bootcamp Ireland is the revolution in getting fit. With sessions running for 2/3 evenings a week, it is open to both men and women who are interested in getting fit in a new and exciting way. Our instructors are professional army fitness instructors or qualified fitness instructors, who give members the motivation and encouragement to push themselves to new heights.

Is it very tough going?
The great thing about bootcamp, is that it is as tough as you want it to be. Our instructors will encourage you to push yourself, but no member is asked to go beyond their ability. It is worth coming down for a session to see for yourself, as each person is different!

Do I have to be fit to join?
It is not necessary to be extremely fit to join, however it helps if you have a basic level of fitness. Can you walk an hour at a good pace, a few times a week? If so, then this should be fine. Your fitness level may occassionally be assessed at the beginning of each course, and our aim is to increase that level over the weeks and have you feeling fitter than before you joined!

How much does it cost?
The cost is €99 for 18 classes which runs over a set 6 week session. This includes your free bonus classes that we run every Saturday in some locations for bootcampers to get in an extra workout, or catch up on a class that they may have missed during the week. There are other way to join, you can check them all out here.

Where is it on?
We run Bootcamp in over 35 locations around Dublin, Kildare & Limerick. You can check out a full list of our locations here.

What if I miss a training session?
There is no problem if you miss a session, however, it is advisable to make as many of the sessions as you can, to get the most out of Bootcamp, but don’t forget about our Saturday sessions that are open to all full time members to help them catch up on a missed class or get an extra workout in, for free! Discounts or refunds will not be given for missed classes.

Can I bring a friend?
Yeah sure! And if 5 or more of you join, one goes free! (all 5 must register and pay at the same time and at the start of a full session).

What if it rains?
Our sessions go on regardless of weather!

How long does it go on for?
Each class is an hour long, however, it is advisable that you arrive up to 10 mins before each session. Your course runs for 6 weeks from your first class.

What should I wear to training?
Depends on the weather, but good sensible running shoes, and either a tracksuit or shorts. Whatever you would wear if you were going for a run in the park! For the ladies, its good to wear something like training leggings or shorts (you will understand why when you’re training!). A light rain-jacket is advisable on rainy days, and in winter, a hat and gloves are always great to have.

Is it mixed?
Yes, the course is open to male and females.

What age group is it for?
It is open to anyone over 18, however, the majority of our members are aged between 20 – 45yrs

Can I go alone?
Of course you can! In fact most of our members come on their own and meet up with other members in the same boat! Its’ actually a great place to meet new people and get fit at the same time!

When is Bootcamp held? Is there a timetable?
Our timetable is on the website – check it out for different times & locations.

Should I talk to a doctor before Bootcamp?
Each member is required to complete a health waiver form on signing up. Should you have any particular illness or disabilities, please inform the instructor before any session.

Do I need to be a member of a gym?
No. This is completely independent of any gym.

How do I prepare for Bootcamp?
Physically, it is advised that you do not eat at least 1 hour before the session. Its good to have a substantial lunch on the day of the session, at lunchtime, and then don’t eat until the session is over. That way, you get the most out of the training, and feel much better. It is also advised to sip water throughout the day up until 2 hours before the class, being pre-hydrated coming to class will prevent dehydration where you have to take on lots of water during the session. Mentally, just come along, and prepare to have a good time and work out to the best of your ability.

When can I start Bootcamp?
As soon as you're ready! We train all year 'round in a number of different locations. Your 6 weeks session starts from your first class.

What is a typical Bootcamp training session like?
We arrive 10 minutes before the session begins. Warm up for 10-15 mins and then the rest may differ from one session to another. It is made up a variety of circuit training, aerobic training and conditioning. To finish each session, a cool down and stretch wraps it up!

Can I carry forward classes during a session?
Unfortunately, we are unable to carry forward any classes to another session. It is quite common that members will occasionally miss a class or 2 during a 18 class session, but we do advise, that you try to make it to at least 12 out of the 18 for the best result. Don't forget, during your 6 weeks you also get an extra 6 FREE BONUS classes at 10.30am each Saturday, and once a full member, you can go to them for free during your 6 weeks.

Can I try it out first?
Like most other courses of this nature, (ie circuit training, pilates, dance, etc..), it is essential that all members taking part, pay in full prior to the commencement of any session, so if you have questions at all about the training, please feel free to ask Bootcamp by either email or phone.
