I have really enjoyed Bootcamp, it has made me aware of how easy it is to schedule in exercise every day. The yoga I found was a great way to relax and stretch my stiff body. I have also enjoyed the AMRAP, Tabata and even the sprints, which I did on my bike and with a skipping rope. This bootcamp was great for motivating me into moving everyday not matter how hard or how long, as long as you move. Thanks Nicola, I look forward to the next program Thrive, but in the meantime it is Morning Yoga for me, which is something I will be doing on a daily basis.
The bootcamp really inspired me! With two young boys at home, it is difficult to get out to the gym. But with Nicola’s online 20 min work outs each day, I could easily get in my exercise. I found the workouts really motivating and with options to really push me. I feel stronger and fitter, and have even managed to lose some weight. I am now really looking forward to the thrive course to continue the new active me! Thank you for inspiring me! Louise
I’ve done 3 bootcamps now and I find them great for challenging myself and mixing up my exercise routine. Both before I had my baby when I was super fit and more recently now I’m a bit slower I have found the workouts to be challenging but achievable. I really like having the videos to follow and being able to basically get straight into a workout, which is great when I’m short for time. The daily email reminders are good for keeping me accountable too. Would definitely recommend it to others.
Hello Nicola, I have recommended your website to lots of people. My daughter put me onto you about 1 year ago and I have relish the ease of stepping into my garage and having you work with me through which ever programme I choose. Your bootcamp kept me focused. You have an excellant variety.
Merry Christmas and keep up the good work
Awesome boot camp, I have done a few boot camps now and they always meet my expectations, all levels are catered for, which is great as when I am building my strength and challenging myself I know what options to use(and can use a lighter option if that what my body needs).
Very organised and easy to follow.
Hi it was great motivating and fun work outs easy to do at home and I felt I achieved results definitely fitter and more toned!
I have belonged to the online gym for several years now, and this new bootcamp was a great rejuvenation of my exercise plan. It was really great to follow some new workouts and although my fitness level is pretty good, I was still able to challenge myself with the higher level options available within the workouts, yet it as equally suitable for a beginner who hasn’t exercised for a long time. The instructions are clear, and Nicola delivers the classes in a positive, friendly way that makes it easy to follow along. I always pretend like I am actually in a class, and that way I have the added challenge of wanting to do my best, not slack off because I’m at home. It really is the best way to get a workout into your day, with the ability to fit in half an hour any time to in your day, as well as my daily walk or run to get that foundation of movement. I look forward to my workouts, instead of dreading them, and the additional advice, recipes etc is an added bonus.
Very happy to give testimonial.
One night I was scrolling through Facebook when up popped an advert for Bootcamp with The Online Gym. I spoke with my husband who said “go for it if you want to”. I thought about it for a while then came to the decision to ‘Do It!’
Day 1 of Bootcamp I was determined to be honest with my testing and eating – I was determined to prove many people wrong who had told me constantly that I would struggle to get rid of my ‘mummy tummy’.
I loved the daily emails with the workouts. What made me 100% committed was the simplicity of the workouts, I did everything from home, and usually in the morning before work. What kept me motivated was the variety of lengths of workouts as well as the content. I loved experiencing yoga as part of the program. The support of the Facebook group and private emails was also fantastic.
In terms of results – I lost a total of 31cm from my measurements. The fact that I can actually see the results has given me the motivation to carry on.
Yes I have a long way to go, however, the results I can see have given me the inspiration to continue and I’m determined to embed the new habits I have created. I will be forever grateful for falling upon the Bootcamp advert, it really has changed my life in so many ways.
I was so enthused about this bootcamp and managed to get through weeks 1-3 very well. During week 4 I managed 3 sessions and unfortunately surgery saw me laid off for the last week. But I’m on task to continue this week. Sessions are just being pushed out, not stopped.
I just loved Bootcamp, because it’s all about ME and you make each workout achievable and inclusve – regardless of my level of fitness, you provided an array of moves to suit my level. Your amazing positivity and joining me for each session was also inspiring and motivating. (No chance of giving up, with you in the room lol)
My favourite part of bootcamp is the Yoga, followed by amraps and tabata….and the part I disliked was running. Running and I are just not friends. But hey, skipping, power walking worked for me.
The Wellness program -( wow you are very clever and insightful) offered further support and had some very helpful tips. Sleeping patterns have changed lol. The Bircher muesli is a hit in our household and we are hooked.
I’m okay about where I am at right now, dissatisfied with myself at the moment, but know that I will be feeling the opposite, very satisfied, at the end of this coming week.
Thank you very much Nicola for the opportunity to once again reawaken, strengthen, replenish and nourish my body, mind, and spirit.
Looking forward to the next phase.
Mauri ora (Good health)
Your online gym experience was new for me.
I found all the types of exercises ie yoga, AMRAP, TABATA , sprints, happiness and wellness days, suited and everything made sense in how you set out the training program.
The alternative options were very helpful as I did revert to the easier option for want of a better word, when I wasn’t able to do full range.
The fitness tests start and finish, is a great way to see results at the end of the programme.
All your online interaction was very informative and enabled me to work along with your videos.
Particularly helpful watching all the exercises first.
What I really took in was your Wellness Wheel promotion, I liked how you always, said without prejudice upon anyone that for me was the overarching message of WELLNESS and HAPINESS and I get that ?
I admire that you have put this great program together for the wellbeing of others, such as myself whom I thought would never do such a thing!!
I am inspired to continue with you, as you are making a difference to my whole well being and happiness.
I am looking forward to Thrive.
Thank you very much.
Completing bootcamp and final testing. Super impressed – feeling lots fitter and healthier, increased time for each test, finally able to complete 5 full press-ups (never before) and lost inches. Looking forward to the Thrive programme.Recommended this fitness programme to other people so keep up the great work.
The best fitness programme I have been apart of. Never thought that this could be possible online and that I would stick to it. I find yoga so beneficial to my flexibility after many years of lifting heavy weights.So now I have completed the boot camp and whilst I did not lose weight I lost inches…yay!!! I never missed a workout and sometimes did a yoga one in the eveningas well . I hate running so I walked very fast, and used a skipping rope for all the sprints. Three drivers for me completing this bootcamp- they were short, varied sessions with options, Nicola and her energy is an amazing motivator first thing each morning and I enjoyed how I felt each day before going to work. I even loaded all the meditations on to a USB stick and go off to sleep with this each night. Thank you so much for all these wonderful tools… you have changed my life xx
The best online bootcamp programme ever. Loved it, thank you Nicola for yet another brilliant online fitness programme.Fi Marshall
I have really enjoyed being apart of this boot camp. It has challenged me and pushed me on days I really couldn’t be bothered doing anything. My energy levels were high after each workout and my body and mind felt great. I struggled with the last week and wasn’t able to complete the running side of the fitness test due to hurting my Achilles the week before which was disappointing however I have still seen some great results with the other tests and it has motivated me to keep going. Thanks so much for this great programme 🙂
I loved Bootcamp and would be happy to share my experience.
I felt like I was in pretty good shape before joining Bootcamp. I had recently trained for and completed a half-marathon to celebrate being a five-year cancer survivor. In the past (before cancer), I would train for a race and then stop running after the race because I was sick of running and I felt unmotivated to workout in the winter.
This year I set a goal to maintain my fitness after my race. I joined Bootcamp hoping that it would help me figure out a more sustainable fitness plan for myself. Bootcamp helped me to do this! The daily emails from Nicola were encouraging and helped me to keep exercise as a part of my daily routine as the weather turned colder. I loved the predictability of doing HIIT on Monday, Tabata on Tuesday, yoga on Wednesday etc…combined with the new routines for each style of workout each week. The variety was easier on my body than running all the time and removed the monotony of doing the same type of workout each day.
I am the mother of 5 children, ages 9 to 16 and don’t have a lot of time to spend working out. The Bootcamp workouts helped me realize that I could improve my level of fitness without spending huge amounts of time working out. At the beginning of Bootcamp, I could do 8 full pressups and by the end I was able to complete 15. Even though I was a runner (slow, long distances), I had never done sprints. I was amazed by what a difference they made! I actually cut my time for 1 km by 45 seconds! I was also new to Tabata and loved it.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the online gym format. Nicola was responsive to my comments and questions. I had access to all sorts of workouts and helpful information, at anytime of day. I didn’t have to drive anywhere to workout and I didn’t need fancy equipment. The Wheel of Wellness concept really rang true with my heart.
Nicola’s workout videos are awesome! I appreciated that she did all of the reps alongside me. I was glad that she didn’t edit out the portions where she lost her balance or had to fix her ponytail – these made me feel connected to her as a person. I felt of her sincere desire to help others reach their goals and improve their health. The variations on each exercise are explained clearly and provide options for all fitness levels, from true beginner to seasoned athlete.
I would recommend this Bootcamp program to anyone interested in improving or maintaining their fitness. Thank you for creating such a great program. It was everything I hoped it would be.
Nicola, I would be more than happy to share my BOOTCAMP experience for the only reason that I loved it.
For five weeks I was looking forward to the next daily session. Between, the core, Tabata, sprints, yoga, run, walk sessions, I had plenty of opportunities to challenge myself. The fitness test at the beginning and at the end of the challenge is what kept me moving no matter what , because I wanted to see some improvement s, and I did.
Nicola, your workouts are fun and diverse, and your fabulous energy make them great to attend.
I will keep participating in your programs and I highly recommend your website to my friends.
To a fabulous new year that I’m truly looking forward to.
I’ll be 58 years old in January and I train three horses for dressage. I have two granddaughters and I want to be the grandmother that hikes and plays with them. The only way to do that is to exercise. Even though I was already exercising, this was a great boost in keeping me fit. I especially liked the days we used weights. I would do it again if offered.
Such a wonderful variety of workouts filled with options to suit everyone. No matter your mood or energy levels, there is always something to do. I love the restorative yoga sessions and short and to the point Tabata! I also adore how any of my friends, no matter where they are in the world can be on the same boot camp together! ❤️☀️?♀️?♀️
What can I say apart from Bootcamp was FANTASTIC! I have often got fed up with my lack of energy and the way my body looks and feels. I have started so many fitness programmes extremely motivated and trying to keep up with the coach I have always ended up with injuries, so each time I’ve stopped.
When I saw you were opening registration for Bootcamp a few weeks before my birthday (50th), I thought it’s now or never.
I loved the emails everyday to let me know what I was in for that day. The workouts were challenging, short, sweet and to the point ! I kept motivated, without any injuries (although the first week had a few sore muscles!) I found that everyday I couldn’t wait to do my workouts! The results are there. Centimeters finally disappearing from just about everywhere!! I feel just wonderful. Thanks Nicola for your Amazing workout programmes. Can’t wait for Thrive which I will then follow with DRT 1.
I loved the boot camp.
It was there at home in private
I was able to push myself or take it slow night not feel embarrassed
It wasnt a hour long sessions.
They were do able sessions
I like how u included yoga
Thank you Tracey
Thank you so much Nicola, for All your programs! You always give me that little bit of motivation I need to keep going! I know I feel better and stronger and pleased that I did the whole 5 weeks of boot camp! and want to keep going…Looking forward to THRIVE!
The format is excellent! Last winter I completed all of the yoga programs . I love the settings, the diversity and the litttle pup too ! Keep of the great work!
I just competed Bootcamp. What a fun and effective program! I lost inches and gained strength in all areas.
But what I love most about Nicola’s programs is that they are Smart. The exercises follow in good sequence day by day and week by week. There are always options that are well explained to keep you safe. The motivation is there to try harder but not to hurt yourself.
So many programs are out there by people without proper training and they can set you back. Nicola has the knowledge and training to make exercise fun and safe. She has a way of welcoming you to improve your fitness for any sport you choose .
Cheers to Nicola!
I loved every aspect of the programme. The level of information was perfect, well thought out and motivating. You are so positive in your videos you really did make me feel like I was doing an amazing thing. I love the routine the bootcamp has created and how it introduced me to workouts I wouldn’t do by myself, I discovered I loved sprints and yoga. I feel so positive about having a good balance of exercise and that I can fit it into my life long term.
Thanks so much
Thank you Nicola!
I’m just amazed over all the programs and possibilities for wellbeing I find at your site! Awsome!
I’ve done DRT1, 2 and 3, morning yoga and Cathedral Cove yoga retreat and loved them all. THEN I went for Bootcamp and did both the training and the meal plan. Bootcamp was just awsome – I love it!! Mealplan was not at all as hard as I thought it would be – and the 5 week duration actuall start giving some nice habits!
The results of Bootcamp for me is just amazing!
I’ve started to find joy in running .. I just love the sprints and what they do to me.
I’ve lost about 8kg, overarms and thighgs all lost 4cm, waist lost a whooping 10 cm and the hips 12 😉 and the bum is looking better and better 😉
What I love even more, is that it felle like I’m building up some good habits regarding , food, workouts, stretching, movement, catch the day and enjoy life even more. Love your statement about- workout and move to be able to enjoy your life till the fullest, don’t let the body hold you back!
I have now moved on to Thrive and added in Tabata Tuesdays from Bootcamp and also the sprint Thursdays 🙂 I aim to start doing the 15min run on Tuesdays from week 5. My goal is to run 5km before Christmas 😉
Love Siri Wylie , Sweden
Here’s my testimonial 😊
This was the ONE thing that finally got me motivated to start exercising. Nicola’s BC is the perfect balance. In only 5 weeks I could see a difference and it’s so easy. Loving that I don’t have to slog it out at the gym. This is sustainable and truly the best thing I ever did. Thanks Nicola! 👍
Kind regards Andrea
I am very happy to provide feedback about the Bootcamp program. First of all I was in dire need of an exercise program. Because I work a weird schedule I needed something I could do on my own time. The solution was Nicola’s Bootcamp. (I also participated in the DTR1 program and i am a member of the online gym).
When I’m working out i feel like Nicola is in the room with me encouraging me along the way. The exercises work every part of my body and are strenuous but not to the point of exhaustion.
Hi there Nicola,
The online gym has been amazing, the support is endless, encouragement abounds and the workouts will kick your butt! This program is versatile and easy to do. What ever kind of workout you are looking for, is here in Nicola’s gym!
Boot camp is challenging and so helpful with my progress. I had some knee issues and was haying during this challenge so part of this routine changed for me. I especially loved the yoga; it’s my go to. Thank you for all your efforts and great info and great routines I can follow! I have recommended a new friend and she is so excited to show her daughter. She home schools and loves your example for wellness, etc. Keep going Nicole and Ben, from New Zealand! You are awesome!
Foreverfit boot camps never fail to impress and engage me. Short, sharp yet incredibly effective workouts which have been cleverly planned to have maximum impact with minimum commitment. There are plenty of options for everyone and suggestions for extra walks/runs etc to pair nicely with the daily work outs.
I really enjoyed the structured of bootcamp, and it was great having Nicola’s positive, cheerful emails pop into my inbox every week. Nicola’s enthusiasm definitely helped with the motivation. It was also really good having a community of other people on Facebook, posting their progress throughout the bootcamp. Thanks! Jane Pacey
