Giles reveals how fit and slimmer he’s become since doing Daniel’s Bootcamp Programme
“I’m 43, and am by some distance as fit as I have ever been. This can be put entirely down to Dan’s bootcamps. It is not as if I did not exercise before: for over ten years I’ve oscillated through phases of obsession with running and rowing, endlessly chasing PBs. And I’ve tried various dietary approaches, always with spells of success, never lasting.
This is what had worked. First, variety: people left to their own devices do not explore new exercises, and invariably end up lopsided in their approach. This has done more than just avoid injury, but meant I’ve felt strong in ways I never expected, such as getting up from the floor. Second, the short bursts are brilliantly designed to push you to the limit without inducing the despair a long run can cause. And, thirdly, it’s fun competing with others, in a team: just the right mix of pressure and fellow feeling. This helps with the food bit too: we all suffer together from Dan’s anti bread fascism…
So I’ve lost five percentage points of body fat, most of it replaced with muscle, and am only eight months in. I’m running faster than ever – beating records I set when younger. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
