PureResults Bootcamp is no ordinary get fit experience. If busy city gyms put you off, but you love to get active in the fresh air and with exactly the right diet to suit your training as well as supporting healthy, balanced eating for weight loss, then it might be time for a trip down to Ireland’s gorgeous Ring of Kerry. Started by Kathryn Thomas who has a passion for active living and a taste for a fun, the retreats already have streams of happy customers raving about it or booking in for a second one!

Thinking of booking in? We’ll have a suggested booking week up in GirlCrew Trips & Travel shortly but you can book any time over the year with a special GirlCrew discount if those dates don’t suit! And if 25 girls book in for the suggested week, PureResults have offered to double the discount – now if that doesn’t get everyone motivated, I’m not sure what will! 😉

We chatted to Kathryn about her inspirations to start PureResults, staying motivated and living well.

What motivates you to get fit and eat well?‬

I’ve got a pretty hectic schedule so it’s really important for me to have the energy to keep going. That’s why eating the right food to fuel my body is vital.  Being active and staying fit not only keeps my energy levels up, but I just really enjoy the feeling of exercise and getting outdoors in the fresh air. There’s nothing like a dip in the Irish Sea or a run with the dogs to give you a natural high!

What made you want to start PureResults?‬

I’d been to yoga and detox retreats in Spain, LA and Australia and really wanted to bring the best ideas back home to Ireland. The idea came to me to set up a fitness retreat where people could come to lose weight, get in shape, detox and unwind.

I saw an opportunity to create a business that would help people get back on track, or kick start their health and fitness regardless of their age, shape or fitness levels. The key for me was to really provide something that would get results for clients so they could see for themselves what they can achieve and give them the motivation to keep going when they go home.

For someone just starting a weight loss or health improvement journey, what’s a good first step?

Get support. Family, friends, neighbours, offline or online!  Anything where you can share how you’re feeling and have someone to help keep you going when you want to give up.

It’s so much easier to stick with a healthy lifestyle when someone has your back. We see it at Bootcamp too. Everyone is there to encourage their fellow bootcampers to keep going when you feel like you’ve nothing left to give. Research has shown that having an exercise buddy to go for walks, runs or share healthy eating tips really increases your chances of sticking to a healthy lifestyle.

4. What do people on the bootcamps enjoy the most or have the most fun doing?‬

Without doubt Boxercise is the favourite, followed closely by our Assault Course!  Boxcercise is high intensity and a great chance to work off steam!  It’s so much fun and great to see how clients get stronger as the week goes by.  

We recently met Chris Eubank at the Smiles Awards in the Guinness Storehouse. So we might have to get him to come along to the next camp and show us if our technique is right!

5. What’s your motto for life?‬

Always remember to laugh. It costs you nothing, but makes you feel a million dollars!
