Testimonial Philippa Hartley / Edgbaston Fit Camp
About 6 years ago I weighed 13st 8lbs after 4 years of hard work I managed to lose 4 stone, However I couldn’t maintain the weight loss and soon put back on over a stone which took me to just under 11 stone. I knew I wasn’t healthy and although I was running it wasn’t enough for me so this is where I decided I needed to get back on track and this is when I found Fit Camp UK.
I joined on my own which was something I never thought I would do as my confidence was pretty low. However I went and nearly 2 years later I haven’t looked back. With the help of the Fit Camp UK Instructors I was able to lose just under 2 stone and lost over 12inches over my body and I can’t thank them enough.
The instructors at Fit Camp UK are so encouraging, they push you that little bit more each time, they make sure you are working hard whilst having fun and most of all they care, they care about your progress, they make you feel like there is nothing you can’t do, they want you to improve and achieve your best.
I always look forward to the sessions and I try and go 3 times a week. There is so much variety with each session. It is hard work but I have so much fun when I’m there.
With Fit Camp UK not only has my health improved but my confidence has grown so much which has helped me in all aspects of my life. I have met some incredible people and made some amazing friends.
My life has totally changed since joining and I’m so honoured to be part of the Fit Camp UK family.

Around 18 months ago i weighed in at 19 stone 2 pound, this is when i thought enough is enough and began dieting and bought a treadmill and exercise bike, i managed to shed 2 stone and i hit a bit of a brick wall, and couldn’t lose anymore, the treadmill started to get dusty, and a few pounds began creeping back on, then i was introduced to the world of Fit Camp UK, and in just short of 4 months i managed to get my diet back on track and get my weight down to 15 stone 2 pound. Each session is different which helps to keep it interesting, using tyres, kettlebells, doing pad work either boxing or kicking, the instructors and other members help to motivate and push you to get that little bit extra. You also get encouraged to take part in some great runs and i completed the winter wolf run with some fellow fit campers last month which is a 10k obstacle course and it was fantastic, i doubt very much that i could have even made the starting line before Fit Camp. Since joining, Fit Camp has not only rejuvenated my diet and fitness, but has also gained me many new friends, and a new attitude towards exercise, as it is now fun and interesting!
I have been into various kinds of fitness for more than 20 years but was getting bored with the same gym can class routines and didn’t feel I was challenging myself. I joined Fit Camp UK nearly 2 years ago and am now addicted! Every single session is different and I love being outside in the fresh air whatever the weather. The instructors are motivational and know exactly how hard you can be pushed so I have never been fitter. All of the members are a great bunch of people, there is a great sense of belonging to something special where you can have fun as well as getting fit. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to start getting fit or is already there and wants to take it to another level.
My success was 9lb off in 10 weeks and a massive difference in my stamina!! I can’t believe the difference in my fitness in such a small amount of time thanks to you guys at fit camp (although mostly on the actual day I curse you) and their 30 day eating plan I can be confident in my clothes again!!
My best friend Debra Lewins (FCUK – Solihull) and I have tried many faddy diets and exercise classes including Boogy bounce, Salsa, Zumba and training for many Moonwalks for charities but the weight always piled back on and more…
March 2012 John and I joined FCUK – Tamworth, for 3 months! From having a 7ft, 17st basket ball player kicking you or a 5ft, 8st tiny woman punching you with all their might, you know when it’s your turn you can give them just as good as you just got. And that alone is encouragement…
Fit Camp for me isn’t JUST about losing weight; it’s about my whole shape changing. It’s about growing confidence and growing strengths and not just physical!. It’s about turning up, not knowing if its circuits, with tyres and sledgehammers or bodyweight work . It’s about knowing whoever I’m partnered with or training next too I’m encouraged to do more, to go faster or at times to take it easy. EVERY class is different.. What gym can give you that?
Fit Camp has also given me a great bunch of friends; they are all amazing people, tall, short, male, female, young and old… The social side to Fit Camp is a bonus, you’re not going to get that at any other exercise class.
I tried aerobics, bums and tums, Zumba but none of them brought me back after 2 sessions as didn’t interest me enough to stay , I started Fit Camp UK in Jan 2013 with friends and I love it! Never looked back after the 1st session, we have an amazing instructor Simon who I’m so grateful to ,he’s took me with a lot of Ass kicking and shouting at(which was needed)to a size 8/10 and 9.12 in a few months and a complete life change for the better all round Even on days where I struggled he was still there pushing and encouraging me back on form. We have a fantastic group all look after and support each other ,made some great friends as well as all my own friends joining too, In Nov I did the 10k obstacle Wolf Run and also won the Most Motivational Member Award which I was really proud of and made it all worth while!
I wouldn’t recommend anything but Fit Camp UK.
In 2005, aged 20, I started to think about my fitness. I started kick boxing, but struggled to attend sessions due to university and work commitments. I tried going to gym, different fitness classes, dancing, and fitness DVDs but I didn’t enjoy it. I started to gain more weight and feel unhappy with the way I looked. I really struggled to get motivated to do any form of exercise and the weight piled on.
I was introduced to Fit Camp UK July 2013 by a friend and have never looked back. After doing 2 of the Groupon sessions I knew I was going to sign up as a member. I have never enjoyed an exercise so much. The instructors and other members are really friendly and motivating. I look forward to the sessions, and although at times it can feel tough the results are great. Each session is different, you get to meet new friends and have fun whilst exercising.
I love Fit Camp UK, and although i have only been a member for about 4 months, i feel a lot better in myself and for the first time i enjoy and feel committed to an exercise. Since becoming a member i have lost one and half stone.
I joined Fit Camp Uk back in April 2013. I start with a taster session and never looked back. On my first session another member told me “stick with it and this will be the best thing you will ever do for your fitness” and they couldn’t be more right!!! I have gone from doing 1 session a week to 4 sessions a week at two different locations (Tamworth & Sutton). I have lost just over 2 1/2 stone and my fitness has gone through the roof! Getting fit and loosing weight are certainly a great thing that Fit Camp UK delivers however, importantly, I have made loads of new friends and can certainly say the people and instructors make Fit Camp UK what it is!! Delivering results and a great time working out is something that no gym membership has ever delivered for me personally, then I found Fit Camp Uk! I’ll pass on the advice that I got on my first session “come down and give it a go, stick with it and it will be the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself!”
I’ve been a member of Fit Camp UK for a couple of months, and am reaping the rewards already. I’ve lost a stone in weight, and 15″ off my body, including 4″ off my stomach… Off the scales, I feel fitter and stronger than I ever have done!
What is brilliant about FitCamp is the level of support you get, both from instructors and from fellow FitCampers! There really is a team atmosphere and everyone looks out for and encourages each other. Dave and Ollie have given me diet and nutrition advice, as well as making sure each workout is different and challenging- you are never going to be bored with them around!
I’d definitely recommend FitCamp UK to anyone looking to get fitter, leaner and stronger in a fun way.
