Reality TV Start Elissa Corrigan of Desperate Scousewives gives here thoughts.*
Reality TV Star Elissa Corrigan of Desperate Scousewives lifts lid on Europes toughest militray-style boot camp after completing painful regime. It’s 10.30pm, pitch black and I’m lying face down in a murky swamp. I can only faintly make out the silhouette of a man in army camo, while he yells expletives at me, during a brutal circuit comprising hundreds of push-ups, burpees and sit ups. The water is so thick and dank, I can’t even see my hands. I try to forget my feeble muscles burning, the bitter cold and the bugs, instead, all I’m focusing on is – why did I volunteer to be here? When I signed up for Xtreme Boot Camps – dubbed ‘Europe’s toughest military style bootcamp’ – I arrogantly assumed I’d be able to take the workouts in my stride. Being an avid gym bunny, a cross-fitter and considering I’ve completed four other military style camps with relative ease, I reasoned, how hard could this one be? Read the full story here…
“In January of this year I embarked on a journey to try and lose some weight, initially it was a competition with work colleagues to raise money for a local charity. By coincidence at the same time a close friend of mine kept on raving to me about a new army style fitness boot camp he had been going to.
After much nagging and quite a few beers to persuade me to give it a go with him I succumbed thinking it could only help me with the competition. On 6th January 2014 I experienced my first Xtreme Boot Camp with James, and what an experience it was…”

Xtreme Boot Camps residential was the most challenging experience I did this year! Boot camp was how I imagine rigorous army training with great instructors. Adam, an ex PTI with the Army was one of the instructors and was ready to push you outside of your comfort zone and show you how strong a person you could be not just physically but also mentally during all his high intensity training. As well as his “no pain no gain” motto, Adam also went well beyond what I expected by helping me with my nutrition and digestive health problems. He was very approachable and provided sensible and valuable advice. Read more
“After years of working in the corporate world, with no time to exercise or eat properly, I found myself very overweight and out of shape and a size 16. Since starting the company I have trained with Xtreme Boot Camps weekly since October, although I have had periods of time off with a knee injury. I am now a size 12 and I am the fittest I have ever been.*
I do not weigh myself as the instructors always tell me to use a tape measure as the scales can be deceiving, especially as I build muscles I didn’t know I had”… Read more

“I was a keen sports enthusiast at school especially in hockey and rounders. However, since leaving school, I have found it hard to find sports that I like and I have since piled on the weight and let my fitness levels drop.
I was unhappily unhealthy and the biggest size I have ever been. I tried the regular gyms but gave up through boredom. I have also tried every diet you can think of but find myself back to square one within days. Then in the Summer of 2014 a friend introduced me to Xtreme Boot Camps…”

She may be a grandmother of six, but Sammy Patterson can certainly strike a saucy pose. The 43-year-old took part in a lingerie shoot after shedding a staggering two stone at a military-style boot camp, the Birmingham Mail reports. And the results were incredible – with Sammy looking, and feeling, confident at a fighting fit 7st 10lbs*.

The organisation runs boot camps in Malvern, Worcestershire. And after being put through her paces, Sammy now sports a lithe body she’s proud of. Read the full story here…
