The motive8 Kickstarter boot camp is about you and your fitness journey. You may be completely new to exercise, already exercising but have lost your fitness mojo or you may simply just love exercise. Whoever you are, motive8 boot camps are for you!
Exercise For Everyone
Our training sessions are tailored for all abilities and fitness levels. We make our training sessions fun, yet challenging and you also get the opportunity to try some new activities such as archery. During boot camp if you decide an activity is not for you, don't worry you can opt out but we encourage everyone to give everything a go!
Before you come to boot camp you will have a 20-30 minute consultation with a motive8 trainer, who will discuss your goals with you and place you in the right exercise sessions.
Enjoyable, Healthy Food
Who said healthy food has to be boring? Not us! Enjoyable, tasty food is a key part of your boot camp experience. At the start of each meal we will explain the nutritional benefits of what you are eating and also provide recipe cards to take away so you can continue your healthy lifestyle at home.
If you know why you’re doing what you’re doing, you’re more likely to stick to your regime and reap the rewards. We include educational seminars as part of your boot camps and you get plenty of time to ask questions and pick the motive8 trainers brains during boot camp.
Boot camp is about making fitness and nutrition fun! There are plenty of opportunities to get to know your fellow boot campers and workout in a fun atmosphere.

How fit do I need to be?
Motive8 boot camps are suitable for all fitness levels and abilities. Our instructors are great at adapting all workouts to ensure that everyone works at their own intensity and never feel out of place. We offer various activities throughout the day, and offer different intensity options during all of the workouts.
What does a typical boot camp look like?
Friday night is the fun night, getting to know your fellow boot campers with a nice meal and a fun activities. Get an early night and ready for an action packed Saturday! Both Saturday and Sunday start with an exercise session designed to invigorate and wake up the body, this is followed by a healthy, wholesome breakfast. The rest of the days are jam packed with a mixture of higher intensity workouts mixed with lower intensity sessions such as a hike in the surrounding, amazing countryside. Throw some educational seminars and lots of healthy food into the equation and there you have it, a motive8 boot camp!
What exercise activities do you offer?
We offer a range of activities throughout the boot camp. These vary from lower intensity options such as Yoga and PiYo, to higher intensity options such as High Intensity Interval Training, Circuit Training, Boot Camp Workouts. We also focus on strength training and showing you exercises you can do at home without any equipment.
During boot camp we also go on a hike in the surrounding areas, the hike isn’t too hilly and we have different distances for different fitness levels.
Will the whole weekend be spent exercising?
No! We appreciate that some rest is needed during boot camp, therefore regular rest/meal breaks are scheduled throughout the day.
At motive8 we are huge believers in education, therefore we also hold seminars throughout the boot camp to educate you about nutrition and exercise so you can continue your good habits after boot camp.
A huge part of the motive8 philosophy is enjoying healthy food, so you will also have the opportunity to enjoy lots of healthy, tasty food.
What if I don’t like an activity, do I have to carry on?
Whilst many boot camps are full of scary sergeant major type instructors we are not like that! Yes, the motive8 team will push you and work you hard (it is boot camp after all!) but if you have given something a whirl and it’s not for you, or you need a break because you’re tired we won’t force you to do something, everything is optional.
What we will say though, we can guarantee that if you give everything a go, you will walk away from the weekend with a huge sense of achievement as you will have pushed yourself out of your comfort zone, in addition to feeling super motivated to kick start your new fitness regime!
Will I eat rabbit food all weekend?
No!! We are massive believers in educating boot campers that healthy food can be tasty and enjoyable and we don’t believe in scrimping on portion size! With this in mind you will enjoy healthy, wholesome breakfasts and tasty lunches and snacks. If you are staying on Friday and Saturday you will enjoy a 2 and 3 course meal respectively. We also provide recipe cards so you can enjoy healthy food once you return home. Please note if you are on the non-residential boot camp only your breakfast, snacks and lunch will be provided.
Do you cater for special dietary requirements?
Yes, when you have your telephone consultation with your motive8 trainer please let them know so we can cater for you.
I’ve got an injury, I can still exercise, but am limited with what I can do, can I still come?
We would love to say yes, but call us first on 0113 243 0161 so you can discuss your injuries with a motive8 trainer first before booking.

What do I need to bring?
Before we get to the practicalities one of the things we ask you to bring is an open mind! Even if you’ve not done any of the activities before, give them a whirl, if you feel completely out of your depth then we won’t make you continue but we do encourage you to try everything.

Is there any other support outside of boot camp?
Yes, indeed! For us this is about your fitness journey, not just a one-hit wonder boot camp! Before you arrive you will have a 30 minute phone consultation with a motive8 trainer, where we get to know more about you and your goals and help you choose the right exercise sessions for you.
After boot camp you can join our social media groups to receive regular recipes, workouts and motivation! If you live in Leeds, you might want to come along to one of our classes or have personal training sessions. If you don't live in Leeds, we can provide online support.
