Jessica, No1 Boot Camp, Norfolk May 2014
"Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic week we had at No1 Boot Camp!"
"Bear, Serena and Spence were so much fun and the results were unbelievable!"
"I thought I would attach a photo of my before and now pictures as I'm looking a bit different nowadays! I could never have done it without the No1 Boot Camp inspiration and how fantastic the team are."
Lisa, No1 Boot Camp, Norfolk April / May 2014
"I've had a brilliant time at No1 Boot Camp and it has been a life changing experience. I've lost 25 pounds and 2 dress sizes."
"It's very addictive and all the staff are lovely. The food is amazing and the trainers are brilliant. No 2 sessions are the same and they are great at motivating. It didn't matter what the English weather had in store for us it was still great fun. I always felt motivated and felt a great sense of belonging."
"I've learnt so much about health and nutrition which I can use when I'm away from camp. It was definitely one if not the hardest things I've ever done, but so worth it and so rewarding. The results make the hard work worth while."
"I would recommend No1 Boot Camp to anyone that wants to get fit, healthy or to lose weight. I will definitely be visiting No1 Boot Camp again, a great place."
Caroline & Jasmine, No1 Boot Camp, Norfolk May 2014
"A HUGE thank you to the wonderful team at No1 Boot Camp in Norfolk. Particular thanks go to the two brilliant instructors, Bear and Spence who made a terrific team and were hugely supportive and encouraging and all round great guys. Also thanks to Serena the manager, who was kindness itself and very warm and welcoming."
"I attended No1 Boot Camp with my daughter and with some trepidation but was quietly confident about my level of fitness, so what a shock it was to find I was the fat knacker at the back of the run!!"
"So thank you all so much for putting my daughter and I firmly on the right track and we are so motivated since attending. Can't wait to come back! Lots of Love Caroline and Jasmine xx"
Rebecca, Norfolk Boot Camp, January / March 2014
"I chose No.1 Boot Camp because a girl had signed up for a month stay and left 2 stone lighter. I read her testimonial and it was all I needed to know that I was making the right choice..."
"By the end of my first week, I had lost 10lbs and I was elated. My aching body got used to the workouts and each morning as the weeks passed I became fitter, stronger and healthier..."
"After my 7 weeks I returned home 2 stone 3lb lighter and with a total of 6 inches gone from just my waist line..."
"I would like to thank No.1 Boot Camp for giving me my life back and helping believe anything is possible."
Lusea, Ibiza Boot Camp, February 2014
"Before No1 Boot camp, I had never been to a bootcamp training retreat in Europe. I didn't know what to expect, I just knew I wanted to look hot and feel good and I wanted the results FAST! And that is exactly what I got! By the 2nd week, I was amazed how much my body has transformed and healed. My skin was glowing. I could feel my energy go up, my mind got sharper, my arms got toned, my abs got firmer and my legs were supporting me through hours of hiking (the scenery in Ibiza was ridiculously gorgeous!) and workouts."
"Kate is an amazing chef and Stu knows how to motivate his peeps to go to the next level. I felt I could just rely on the team and the result will come if I do the work! This is the best investment I have made to pamper myself in the last 10 years!"
"Totally recommend it! Lusea Lu from Taiwan"
Karoliina, Norfolk Boot Camp, January 2014
"I just wanted to thank EVERYONE for the absolutely brilliant week I had this past week. It was exactly what I needed at this point in my life - and really gives me tools to get the training back on track! So a huge, massive thank you!"
"Stuart and Bear were absolute legends - I cannot tell you how much you helped me during my stay - both mentally and physically! Thank you!"
"Jo - thank you for being an absolute star when I felt a bit panicked about certain health concerns :) You are amazing!!! And very funny!!"
"Ilias - your food is absolutely divine. And you are brilliant to talk to - thank you for all the tips you gave me - I have stocked up with Halloumi for the next year!!! Thank you! And looking forward for that cool book :)"
"Thank you to the lovely girl who was keeping the place tidy :) Hope your foot heals soon!"
"All the best, Karoliina"
Nadia, Norfolk Boot Camp, November / December 2013
"My whole life I have yo-yo dieted throughout and found my weight to be an up and down struggle. It's not until I hit thirty three when I said enough is enough! I came across No1 Boot Camp as it is the boot camp that offers a long stay."
"Every week I found myself getting fitter and less tired..."
"The trainers are amazing and will tailor your experience to suit your needs. They have heaps of military experience and know how to push each individual to the limit."
"As for the food, which was out of this world I might add, the variety is amazing and I loved the fact that all the food was fresh produce."
"By week five, I had lost 2 stone 2lbs and had gone from a dress size 16/18 to a 14!!!! No1 Boot Camp is a must especially when you need that kick start and motivation."
Kathryn, Norfolk Boot Camp, November 2013
"Just wanted to let you know what a great time I had at the Norfolk camp and pass on my best to everybody as I forgot to write in the book!"
"Jo is really lovely and Mark and Bear were the perfect good cop, bad cop combination. Mark's metafit was amazing!! Everybody loved it, even though it killed us."
"Anyway I had a great time and got some fab results - 6 inches from hips and 5 from my waist! Amazing! Only bad thing was that I had to go after a week."
"Will definately be back with my friends and family. Thanks again, such a great week! Kathryn"
Naomi, Norfolk Boot Camp, November 2013
"No1 Boot Camp has literally changed my whole mind set about myself..."
"I really enjoyed all the classes and training, as tough and it was both mentally and physically I was so happy to be doing something other than running endlessly on the treadmill."
"The trainers were really motivating and pushed you hard when they knew you could do more and backed off when they knew you were having a moment"
"The food was amazing and it felt really nice to not have to count all the calories as I knew what they we're giving us was really healthy..."
"I can't thank the team enough - It's been such a fun few weeks and I will definitely be back!
Jon, Norfolk Boot Camp, May 2013
"Just a short note to say thank you for a great stay last week (w/c 4th May) at the Norfolk Boot Camp"
"Damien and Ali were excellent and engaging trainers, the food was fantastic and all the other support from Treacle, Craig, Paula, etc was great."
"I left the camp absolutely shattered but significantly lighter. If I can find the time and after I've forgotten how tiring it is, I'll definitely do it again!"
"All the best, Jon"
Lloyd, Ibiza Boot Camp, 2013
"Thankyou once again for the great experience over the two weeks that I spent at the Villa in Ibiza. The food was second to none and probably the tastiest that I have had in memory, I think that is doubly punishing for the portion sizes, but I understand the why's and wherefores on what we get."
"Danny, many thanks for the creative fitness program that you produced for us for both weeks attended. It was both punishing, challenging and yet rewarding, in particular with the weight loss. My goal now is to slip below 90 Kg and maintain that through the physical and nutrition base that you have both developed for us"
"Will, if I manage to head back to Boot Camp, I think if time permits me with work commitments, then definitely yes I will and in all probability it would be Ibiza that I head for."
"Take care gents and many, many thanks once again for your commitment to the health and wellbeing of the attendees of No1 Boot Camp (second to none). Kind Regards, Lloyd"
Laura, Norfolk, February 2013
"I had an amazing time at No1 Boot Camp. Not only did I lose 6lbs and 9 inches over my body in one week, I learnt new exercises and lifestyle changes to use in my everyday life."
"The friendly staff and trainers push you to achieve past your limits. Even when it was snowing and cold outside. I completed the week feeling rewarded and surprisingly refreshed with a spring in my step!"
"A couple of weeks on, I am now in a healthy weight range and more motivated than ever to go and exercise! If you could bottle and sell the positive atmosphere and high spirits at camp, may I be your first customer!"
"If you are hesitant in booking, please book now - I wanted to stay for another week. Thank you No1 Boot Camp!"
Ashley, Norfolk, February 2013
"I wanted to write and say thank you for a wonderful week. I had great results this morning with 10 lbs (!) lost and a bunch of centimetres..."
"I had a great week and thank you all for pushing me hard to get these kind of results. Back in October, in my first week of bootcamp at Prestige, when I weighed about 20lbs more, I only lost 9lbs, so that's amazing!"
"You guys are great trainers and I cannot begin to tell you how life-changing it is to be in better health and shape. Besides the obvious benefits of being able to get men to do things for me (such as carry heavy boxes, do general math problems, and get the door), I can run so much faster now, I can lift so much more, and overall I feel so great."
"...the work you guys do does change people's lives. So thank you."
Sian Thomas, Norfolk, February 2013
"I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say what a great time I had in Norfolk last week at No1 Boot Camp. I'm sure you get a million & one emails saying how fabulous the trainers, food etc is - and they are, fabulous, but I just wanted to say that, having been to various boot camps, I do feel that you have an edge on many of the others because of the homely atmosphere - in particular, the lovely Paula."
"Paula seemed to basically be at our beck & call from the moment we arrived! She had an energy that I was quite surprised by, as she didn't seem to tire of the endless questions & niggles that each of us had. Never once did she seem put out by the requests for toothpaste, plasters, socks, bandages & shampoo. I found that quite amazing really - I think I would be driven mad."
"But really, more than that, was her warm spirit. Paula seemed to be there to really help us 'get through it' and make the most of our time. For me, it was only the 2nd time I'd left my 3 children - and to have someone there who seemed to be happy to chat & look at a few iphone photo's for 5 minutes made a HUGE difference to me."
"Anyway, 'nuff said! It's very unlike me to write an email after anything - but I felt quite strongly that I should this time! Thank you, for a truly life changing experience."
Mandy, Norfolk, January 2013
"Thank you so much for such an amazing experience!
"I've just got home and had to write to you. I stopped for a jacket at the shops. Just before Christmas I bought an 18 - today I'm in a 14. This spurred me on to try on other clothes to see if it was a one off and guess what? It's not! I'm a 14!!! So happy I could burst - literally! "
"Please say a massive thanks to Craig and Lee - they were truly amazing. Just what I needed."
"With today's weight loss I have actually dropped 16lbs in two weeks..."
"I hope all is well with you, Mandy xx"
Ruth, Norfolk, January 2013
"Lee & Craig thanks so much, you got the right balance between compassion & empathy when I honestly couldn't walk, to pushing me when you could see I was slacking ...Skilful."
"I haven't exercised for four months and now I can go home without any fear of the gym & with a no nonsense attitude toward exercise."
"Thanks for changing my mentality, will be back soon... lots of love Ruth"
Claire, Norfolk, January 2013
"What a life changing week! Thanks to all the team for providing a homely atmosphere in which to go through this tough experience."
"Paula thanks for being the group mum. Treacle thanks for making our lives less muddy..."
"Lee & Craig – what motivational trainers we couldn't have achieved our results without your tough love."
"Mick you have gone above & beyond the call of duty – I have loved earning more about food and the cooking lessons have been a highlight of the week and would really benefit other groups..."
"Thank you all so much...all the best!!! Claire"
Mandy, Norfolk, January 2013
"WOW a tough week which was amazing!! Craig, Lee, Paula & Mike were a great team. Craig & Lee what can I say... tough, fair, supportive and brought the best out in all of us."
"This week has taught me so much. Not just about exercise, diet & nutrition, but also about myself."
"Thank you for the most rewarding week of my life. Mandy"
Lisa, Norfolk, January 2013
"I have just returned my second visit to No1 Boot Camp and wanted to say thank you to you and all the lovely staff for an amazing time."

"It has changed so much for me, and I wanted to say a big thanks and say what a great job Paula, Will, Craig, Al and the chefs did. Paula was particularly supportive, she always was there for me when I was down or need a bit of a spur on."
"I have made so many good friends now and I want to come back in Feb then April, so I am really looking forward to that. I have spread the word in the bank I work in, they love it and want to join up and my friends too. In fact I think I have about 10 people coming to the Regent's Park weekends. Thanks again, Lisa"

Kate Phillips, No1 Boot Camp Norfolk & Ibiza, 2011-12

Keith Smith, No1 Boot Camp Norfolk, December 2011

"My self-confidence, esteem and general well-being has improved greatly after just one week at No1 Boot Camp."
"The loss of 12lbs, 2 inches off my waist and the development of abdominal muscles is responsible for my gain in confidence but it was the staff / trainers and other guests motivational drives that opened my eyes to the possible results of intelligent hard physical exercise and disciplined healthy eating."
"Thank you – Kes"

Nick Ede, Ibiza Boot Camp, October 2011
"I went to No1 Boot Camp in Ibiza two weeks ago and had a fantastic experience. The food, location, trainers and exercises were all No1 and I lost over 7lbs and feel amazing. As soon as I arrived I knew the experience would be excellent from the start with Karen picking me up from the airport and taking me to the villa in Benirras."
"We exercised for over 10 hours a day but it never felt too over the top as the pool was always so inviting at the end of the day. I achieved things I have never done before. I hate the water – I swam 3 miles in the sea! I hate running – I ran for hours!"
"The food prepared with LOVE was delicious and nutritious and Karen explained the meals and how to make them at home etc..."
"All in all I had the best holiday of my life, I sweated, ate well, got a tan and lost weight all before the Xmas period! I feel so good and positive and can't wait to go again next year!"
Naomi Bowman, Classic Camp Norfolk, September 2011
"I visited No1 Boot Camp for 5 days in September 2011 and had the most amazing time. I shared a room with three girls who ended up being a fantastic support and most importantly great fun!"
"I came to No1 Boot Camp already fairly fit through long distance cycling and running but had got stuck in a rut with my training and despite exercising regularly, I had gained around 7lbs within six months which was making me unhappy and also slowing me down!"
"I cannot believe how much fitter I became in 5 days at No1 Boot Camp - the trainers, JP and Stu were amazing and the workouts were always challenging and varied - I particularly enjoyed the interval training which has massively improved my running already."
"I also have to say that the food was incredible - I did not feel like I was eating diet food and honestly did not feel hungry - it is very high quality and full of flavour - thanks to our Chef Pete! I have bought a copy of the recipe book and this has been a great help in sticking to the diet now I am back in the real world."
"I left No1 Boot Camp feeling refreshed, revitalised, fitter and 5lbs lighter and I loved it so much that I am already thinking about my return visit - think I might even bring my husband along too!"
Sarah Tawse, Classic Camp Norfolk, September 2011
"I just wanted to say that I had a fantastic time at the Norfolk camp..."
"I spent a week at the Norfolk camp with the intention of trying to lose the last half a stone of baby weight that I just couldn't shift after 2 years of trying! I was apprehensive about how tough the trainers would be but, I should not have been concerned. Dave and Stuart were firm but very fair and gave enough encouragement to make me push myself much harder."
"I also had great fun because the days were varied and the team tasks made the time go faster."
"The food at camp was also amazing. Pete is a genius with healthy food, we all agreed that we never felt really hungry but the flavours and the variety were fantastic!"
"All in all I can honestly say that I have never had so much fun working hard. I am already planning when I can go back for another week. I lost 5lb and 7 inches in just 6 days and best of all, I feel equipped and encouraged to keep up the good work now that I am back home. Thank you to everyone at bootcamp who made my experience such a positive one."
Shelina & son Shaffin Dhalla, No1 Classic Boot Camp,
Norfolk, August 2011
"I cannot thank you enough as a mother on how you have helped my son. Your dedicated staff not only helped him to lose weight, take control of his life but have made a big impact on his overall well being."
"He has done really well, not only did he loose 20lbs with you guys but he has lost another 6lbs."
"As for me, I have now lost a total of 21 lbs and wearing size 12 to 14 from size 18. When I came back from the boot camp I continued my classes at the gym and did 3 classes per day."
"I made some really good friends, recharged my batteries, improved my balance with yoga and walk and walk and walk. I always remember what Ricky said once you reach your destination, carry on an extra few minutes, stretch your limits and for me this was the best advice as I always under estimated my physical capabilities."
Gareth Davies, Classic Camp Norfolk, August 2011
"I went on the Classic Boot Camp for 1 week and loved it. The trainers, staff, chef are all simply incredible. I wanted to ‘bulk up’ so was put on extra food and protein shakes and I got results!"

"It's a great experience both physically and mentally. I missed it the moment I left!"
"I'd recommend anyone to the boot camp who wants to get results fast. You'll just have to get in there quick before I book myself on another week!"

Victoria Baker Smith, Ibiza Boot Camp, July 2011

Lizzie Murray, 27, drops a dress size in 1 week - June 2011
"Bootcamp changed my life in more ways than I could ever have imagined. In my first week I dropped a dress size and felt fitter and more motivated than I had ever felt!"
"6 weeks later I have spent nearly 4 of those weeks at camp because I love it so much! Each week is different and challenging. Each trainer that I meet brings something new to the table and teaches you ways to take bootcamp home with you."
"I was in a glamourous job but I hated it and it was making me unhealthy. During one of my weeks at Bootcamp I made the decision to change my career and choose something that I could use my new love of health and fitness... I came home, quit my job and enrolled in a course to become a personal trainer!"

"Food wise I'm following a similar diet to the one at camp, with a treat meal or item each Sunday (so long as I've earned it)! I've booked back in to camp for September, so hopefully by then I'll be lighter still, and much fitter and prepared to dive right in again!"
