Ulster boot camp to shift the extra pounds

A boot camp for people who are under orders to shift extra pounds but want to sweat it out in beautiful surroundings, has opened in Northern Ireland.

Run by a former Army Physical Training Instructor George Elliott, three or five day intensive courses are available for those who need discipline to stick to a healthy regime.

A typical day begins with a 6am start and outdoor run, followed by breakfast served in the log cabins at 7am. Pool exercises start at 9am with a stretching and flexibility class before lunch.

After lunch there is a theory class and intensive training session before a 5pm dinner.

George, who runs the Galgorm Resort & Spa’s Boot Camp, near Ballymena, Co Antrim, issues a word of caution to those who think it will be a country holiday: “Delegates must be prepared to work hard and follow instruction.”
