Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a bootcamp?
    Bootcamp is a term that's used to describe outdoor training, and there are many different types of outdoor training groups. One misconception is that all bootcamps are run by trainers who yell at you if you're not working hard enough. While that may be true for some, we don't do that. We are here to make you feel supported, encouraged, having a sense of belonging and like you've achieved something significant.
  • How is it different from a gym?
    It starts with being outside, breathing fresh air, and enjoying the sunrise. Groups are small enough that you have a trainer who will show you what to do and plan your training for you, but large enough that you don't need to feel awkward or out of place. Gyms can be intimidating for many people, which is often a deterrent to exercise. Being outside takes that away, and allows you to exercise in a picturesque and fun environment.
  • I'm not very fit. Will that be a problem?
    No one likes to feel like their best effort isn't good enough, so we encourage you to compare yourself only to you. Our groups cater to all fitness levels, and people with a variety of different exercise goals and groups are not at all threatening. People will encourage you and support you and make you feel welcome regardless of fitness or experience.
  • Is training in the morning better?
    We believe that training in the morning, when you're fresh, allows you to give your best effort. Focusing on your own wellbeing at the start of the day allows you to focus, feel positive throughout the day and achieve something significant before you even have your first cup of coffee.
  • Wouldn't I be better with a Personal Trainer?
    At Daybreak Fitness we believe in the powerful influence of a group of supportive people. Whilst a personal trainer gives you a service that is tailored only to you, training with a group gives you access to other people who are also trying their best to be fit and healthy. The support of a community makes you significantly more likely to reach your goals.
  • What if it rains?
    We have access to undercover locations so you're still able to train, even if the conditions aren't right. Rain is just an obstacle to overcome, and not letting it beat you makes you feel empowered to take control of your fitness goals.
  • What should I wear?
    We want you to feel comfortable when you come to training. Wear clothing that's suitable for exercising and allows you to move freely. A good pair of trainers, which aren't too old, is important. On colder mornings we recommend you add a layer or two, which you can take off when you've warmed up.
  • Do I need to bring anything?
    We advise you to bring water, and a towel.
  • How often should I train?
    Ideally 2 sessions per week is a minimum. If you train 3 or more sessions per week, you'll see significant improvements in your strength and fitness.
