I’m Heidi Strickland-Clark and I started FastTrack Fit Camp in November 2009 with a business partner.
Fit Camp has changed a lot over the years — and I now run it alone — but our goal has always been to help people improve their health and feel great. We do this by providing regular exercise classes, sound nutritional advice and information on general well being.
As a boot camp, our main business is outdoor group fitness classes and that’s the basic service we offer. Members take advantage of this by regular attendance to classes at one of our venues around the area. If you just want to make sure you’re fit and active, then this is all you need.
However, if you want to take a broader look at your health or you have particular issues you want to address, we also provide seminars, Facebook groups and one-to-one counselling.
If clients want to tell us their goals, we can make sure that they are on a programme with the best chance of success — and support them all the way. Our success rate is remarkable. We have a very satisfying record for helping people get off medication for depression, thyroid issues, blood pressure problems and more. (Obviously, all done with the oversight of G.Ps.)
Going to boot camp
Going along to your first boot camp might be a bit daunting but we like to keep it simple and everyone is always very friendly and welcoming.
Along with an eagerness for getting stuck in, you need to wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing and bring:
- gloves (gardening gloves work well);
- a bottle of water;
- an exercise mat or an old towel you don’t mind wrecking.
Remember this is outside so consider the temperature and that you’re going to get warm (even in Winter). Wear layers you can take off as you heat up.
Some exercises have your hands on the floor so wear gloves for protection. A sturdy old pair are fine.
For lying on, press-ups and such like. Any exercise mat or old towel will do.
We support our members in many ways and these include:
- A dedicated support person you can reach at firstname.lastname@example.org;
- An open Facebook group for anyone.
- A closed Facebook group for members.
- Specific closed Facebook groups for members on various programmes.
- Seminars on a wide range of health subjects.
- One-to-one counselling. Some counselling is part of a package some is ad-hoc by request.
Plus we run occasional social events, including a very popular Christmas party.
Thanks to all the support of our loyal customers we’ve now been recognised with awards and nominations which we value tremendously and which we’re proud to display on this site.
