Boot camp sessions aim to get customers in shape for summer

A run of free ‘boot camp’ sessions organised by Stafford and Rural Homes is aiming to help get Stafford residents get into shape for summer.

Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) is teaming up with health and fitness specialists and community interest company Healthbox to run sessions across three consecutive Tuesdays at Rowley Park, in Highfields, starting on May 28.

Boot camp is an exciting and enjoyable way to get healthy outdoors to music with family and friends under the guidance of a fully qualified personal trainer,” said Christine Cartwright, Community Involvement Officer for SARH.

All of the sessions will run from 2pm to 3pm and involve short bursts of intense activity across a variety of exercise stations – many using natural objects like trees – to keep motivation levels high.


“All stations have three varying degrees of difficulty so there is no need to worry about fitness.  I’d urge people to take part and feel the benefits instantly,” said Mark Gleave, Public Health Nutritionist from Healthbox.

The boot camps have been organised through SARH’s Community Learning Programme, which includes over 50 free sessions delivered across Stafford Borough throughout the year to help people into employment, improve health and wellbeing, encourage people to meet others or pick up a new skill or hobby.

Courses range from CV Writing and Interview Skills to Basic Gardening Skills, Glass Painting and Cooking for One.

More information on the boot camp sessions and the Community Learning Programme is available on the customer involvement pages of the SARH website:
