Free taster week

St Albans 5 Star Boot Camps was created out of frustration by personal trainer and fat loss coach Barrie Johnston. Frustrated at the poor results the gym environment was generating for members Barrie took his expertise and created an exercise and diet system that delivered results time and time again. The eureka moment for Barrie was realising that results increased even further when coaching in groups and not just individuals. Clients would consistently lose 14 pounds of fat in just 4 weeks with a massive jump in their health and fitness too!

Are you frustrated with constantly being on a diet and getting nowhere? Lacking in energy, exhausted by the end of the day? Not happy with the clothes size you have to buy or unhappy with the reflection in the mirror?

At St Albans 5 Star Bootcamps we are so confident of our exercise and diet system that we offer a full 100% money back guarantee! If you attend Bootcamp and follow the Boot camp Bible Diet and don't drop a clothes size in 28 days we will refund your money guaranteed. Why not get the body you deserve? Why not have too much energy? Sound crazy? We guarantee it!...

"For years i was getting good results with clients who wanted to drop the pounds and inches but found that we'd get so far then struggle with those last few pounds take you from looking good to turning heads. I realised that the current methods of dieting which usually involve being hungry and spending a lot of time being bored on cardio machines was not getting the results we needed. After spending a lot of time and money studying with some of the country's leading health and nutrition experts i had a eureka moment; focus on health, not weight loss. When i started focusing on improving my clients health through nutrition and lifestyle analysis the results were astonishing. People who had struggled with weight loss their entire lives dropped weight as quickly as their energy and fitness level went up. I've now taken all my knowledge and experience and launched St Albans 5 Star Bootcamps" - Barrie Johnston


St Albans Touch

Address: Boggymead Springs, Oaklands Lane, St Albans, Herts AL4 0HR

Website: http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/stalbanstouchrugby/

Email: stalbanstouch@gmail.com

Facebook Address: www.facebook.com/st.albans.touch

Touch is a minimal contact sport played on a pitch half the size of a rugby field (ie 50m x 70m). The game emphasises running, agility, passing, catching and communication. Touch is often referred to as Touch Rugby, but there is no tackling, lineouts, scrumming or kicking involved. This make it appealing to a wide range of ages and abilities, from juniors to masters and from slight to heavy builds.

The main aim of the game is for each team to score "touchdowns" and to prevent the opposition from scoring (One touchdown equals one point). Teams are made up of 6 players on the field at any given time, with up to 8 substitute players on the sideline. Teams are categorized into Mens, Womens and Mixed divisions (mixed = 3 male + 3 female players). Players can substitute anytime during the game and as often as they like.

Attacking players must perform a "roll ball" (between the legs) once they have been touched by a defender. Defenders must retire in a straight line 5 meters from the "roll ball" mark. After 6 touches, the possession changes to the other team for their turn at attack. Penalties are awarded for a variety of infringements including, forward pass, offside, touch-and-pass, roll-ball over the mark and over-vigorous play."

Men/Women of all abilities welcome - from beginners to elite

Ben Jackson Personal Training - Boxing Boot Camp 

Address: Bernards Heath Park,Sandridge Road,St Albans, AL1 4AP

When it comes to getting in shape Ben Jackson's Boxing Boot Camp in St Albans is the most effective weight loss Boot Camp in St Albans.

With many people spending up to 90% of their lives in doors we believe getting outdoors to train is important for both your mental and physical health. The human body and mind was never designed to spend 90% of its time secluded from the outdoor world. People who train outdoors experience higher levels of post exercise endorphins. They act as natural pain-relievers and produce a feeling of well being. This is why we bring the fitness equipment to you outside and also use the natural world to bring you back down to earth.

Our Boot Camp is designed by an expert Personal Trainer to get maximum weight loss results as well as improve all elements of fitness in just one hour; cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, strength, speed, agility, power, flexibility and co-ordination.

St Albans Boxing Boot Camp uses a range of techniques and implements them through fun group games, easy-to-follow resistance exercises working all the major muscles in the body and a dynamic and powerful combination of punches and kicks to get you into the best shape of your life.  

The main reason most people quit an exercise routine soon after they begin is a lack of motivation. Having friends that exercise with you is a terrific way to stay motivated and active so for the best possible results bribe or beg a friend to come with you! Once at the St Albans Boxing Boot Camp you can guarantee your upbeat trainer will motivate you every step of the way and each week is different so you will never get bored of doing the same routine - something most people do at the gym.
