Nicki Banks has changed my life – FACT!
Rachel – Stratford-Upon-Avon. July 2009
So, I’ve only totally done it! I’ve officially completed 2 x 4 week Boot Camps. It’s more exercise than I’ve done in my whole life. Pretty good seeing as I was allergic to exercise only 3 months ago. I’m a stone and a half lighter, toned all over and I feel absolutely knock ’em dead, AMAZING. It’s not been easy, but it’s not been mind breakingly tough either and all that hard
work is 1 million per cent worth it.
I read about Boot Camp in a local advertiser and luckily JUST caught the start of the June course. I was apprehensive, having been to a few group exercise classes at the gym, I thought all the women would be fitness fanatics in neon thong leotards with abs of steel and whip thin thighs.
The first week was hard. Not, dishearteningly hard but just tough. It’s a full on hour in all weathers, of basically, variations of circuit training. Some running, some weights, some toning exercises, bit more running and most importantly, NO cheography, no dance moves
and NO faffing about. I found the running hardest, it’s not like we had to run far, more like short drills – my legs seemed to work but my lung capacity wouldn’t seem to allow me to do what I wanted to do. I was the worst in the whole group but I felt encouraged and motivated to get better.
It’s encouraged me hugely to eat well too. I couldn’t bear to undo all my hard work by stuffing a load of rubbish down. So, I can recommend it to anyone. Any age, any size, any level of motivation. Nicki is a total champion. I’ve done over 40 sessions with her and not ONE session has been entirely like the next. It has all the benefits of personal training with all the motivation of group exercise. I am fit, I’m thin, and I feel GREAT. Not a neon leotard in sight, just a great bunch of encouraging girls with different sized thighs.
