Kate Staples, Master Bootcamp Trainer, former GB athlete & TV Gladiator 'Zodiac'.

Bootcamp in Whiteley Village

We cater for women of all shapes and sizes, from experienced fitness enthusiasts to total beginners and nobody is left behind or asked to do more than they are capable of.  You can register for a five week camp and I can ensure results!  I’ve worked in the fitness industry most of my life, having started as a professional GB athlete before joininig hit TV series Gladiators as ‘Zodiac’. I was privileged to be on the show for six years until I broke my neck! I’m truly passionate about guiding my clients to their goals and, very often, exceeding them. I am a mother of three and have come back from several serious injuries, so I know all about ‘real life’, time management issues and how difficult it can be to be consistent and to prioritise our own mental and physical health. 

After a year of lock down I hope you are you are keen to try something new, blow away the cobwebs and make new friends in a safe, healthy and fun environment!

What they say

“I have had the pleasure of training with Kate on her “Well Fit” programme at the Bodyholiday in St Lucia on a number of occasions.  She has great technique, is upbeat and always positive and her training is really effective.  We ended our week climbing The Pitons as a group which is a memory I will never forget”.

Ruth Curry

“Kate Staples is a rare combination of vital elements – huge knowledge, experience, versatility, dedication, commitment and with an absolute desire to do her best by everybody she works with. Her background in elite international athletics as well as in the biggest TV show of its era – Gladiators – coupled with mothering three children and spending years working with thousands of  school kids, means that Kate’s perspective and breadth of understanding is almost uniquely valuable and impressive”.

OUR Classes

about adventure boot camp

We specialise in training women  outdoors with a maximum of 15 per group and social distancing in place. We are based at Whiteley Village at the Old Reedonians clubhouse in Cobham.    I will inspire you to be your best self and help you meet your goals every step of the way and even exceed your overall target! The process is fun, inclusive, thrives on a sense of ‘team’ and it works! Following my years in GB athletics and on Gladiators, I developed my teaching in California with Dr John Spencer Ellis and qualified as a Master Outdoor Bootcamp Instructor. This allowed me to kickstart bootcamps in the UK, which were very much in their infancy at the time, and establish a thriving network. The intention has always been to establish groups who love being together and helping each other thrive and achieve collectively. 

My camps are about the complete experience and results at the end that you will be proud of!

“I can’t begin to explain how fun and effective Kate’s classes are. Every session targets the whole body and gets you buzzing. I love her method of training, it’s perfect for toning, losing fat and leaving you with a huge smile that  makes you almost forget you are exercising!  I also love the music and the kit she uses.  Training in a group in the great outdoors makes you feel part of a wonderful community and it made me realise that gyms can actually be a very lonely, dull place.”  Lucy Miller, Editor of Health and Fitness magazine

The KS method

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change: – Dr Wayne Dyer 

Are you looking for change?  Beginning with a positive mindset is the starting point for any change.  Woven through all my programmes is education (not in a lecturing sense!) to ensure you are fully informed as you are guided, encouraged and motivated towards your fitness goals together.  There will be fun and encouragement as well as instruction that is absolutely targeted to your abilities and aims as well as plenty of inspiration to help you trust in the process and keep your self-belief strong. 

In all my years in fitness I’ve noticed how the group atmosphere and mindset is vital in helping achieve real and lasting results. You will meet the friendliest like-minded people, make new friends in your local community, share your efforts and rejoice in each others wins! We all stand together regardless of age, race or fitness level and inspire each other! Kate x
