The Hollywood Bodies Camp

March 14, 2015 at 5:35
Posted by Rachael Woolston

Want to get in shape fast? Then don’t miss our Hollywood Bodies course starting April 13th packed with some of the latest workouts from Los Angeles

If you want to get in shape fast and safely, then there is no better fitness plan that than that of the celebrity elite. After all, stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron have to get in shape not only to LOOK good on the red carpet, but to be STRONG too so that they can pull off a film role.

When Jennifer Lawrence reprised her role as Katniss, she was trained by Dr Joe Horrigon, a chiropractic sports medicine doctor who trains Hollywood’s elite.

As well as strength conditioning and athletic training including sprints, he had 24-year old Jennifer doing unconventional strength and flexibility training, such as climbing.

Meanwhile, Julianne Moore, has long stuck to thrice weekly yoga sessions. But at the age of 54, she has recognised the importance of strength training with kettlebells.

While many women mistakenly tend to avoid using weights, Moore recognises they are one of the most important components of fitness to help boost the metabolism for keeping weight down, not to mention shaping the body and balancing the hormones.

Charlize Theron, 39, meanwhile combines kettlebells with yoga, and Pilates to keep herself in shape for film roles.

So if you fancy experiencing what it’s like to train like a Hollywood star, join us in our Hollywood Bodies camp, a three week course starting April 13th.

The Hollywood elite manage to get in such good shape because they train up to five days per week. They can afford to because it’s often paid for by a film studio.

But now YOU can experience this for yourself with Hollywood Bodies, (three times per week at Queen’s Park, or four times a week at Hove Lawns).

We’ll be incorporating workouts based on those done by the stars and latest innovations including, including Barre workouts, TABATA, Exuberant Animal, Boxing Belles and much more.

Suitable for ALL levels, spaces are strictly limited on every course. Book NOW and you get the chance to invite a friend (new to us) for half price. There are only 3 spaces per class available at this rate.

Our Early Bird deals on Hollywood Bodies closes March 25th.

DreamChallenger: Diary of a beginner Fitbitch

March 12, 2014 at 7:00
Posted by Rachael Woolston

 Last week, we announced our Dream Challenger 2014 winner, Becky Taylor. Here she reveals what her first week of Fitbitch was really like…

Thumbs up from Becs in her first week

I found out that I’d won the Dream Challenge 2014 competition, a year of camps and PT, a few days before the start of my first camp, Reboot.

The night before the first session, I could barely sleep because I was so nervous. ‘What if everyone else is super athletic? What if I embarrass myself? God, what if I don’t even wake up in time?!’

At 15 stone, having not exercised for years, I suddenly thought, ‘What have I done?’

But all my worries were gone within minutes of arriving at Queen’s Park,  just as the sun began to lighten the sky.

I wasn’t the only beginner, and even if I had been, everyone was so nice and the our coach, Kate made sure we all knew what we were doing.

Session one involved some fitness tests,  including a timed 1km run. I’m not a runner. Or so I thought.

I had to walk/run but I did it, overcoming a fear of running in just one session, which had kept me from trying it for years.

In fact the entire week has been a week of firsts. I’ve boxed, which I loved, swung kettlebells and done running intervals on the beach.

With the camp Reboot eating plan, I’ve completely overhauled by diet and thrown away all the junk.

I not only feel better but with the exercise, my long term issue with insomnia is improving. In fact, I’m ready for bed by 9.30am.

This is only week one, and I know that there will be some challenges and hard times along the way. But I’m excited about what the year ahead holds.

I used to watch other people running down on the seafront and feel so envious of their ability, and how liberating it looked. I never thought I’d ever be one of those women. But now, in just one week I AM one of them.

Are you inspired? Team GB Women

July 30, 2012 at 10:35

Lizzie Armistead, took siliver in the women's road race

Olympics 2012 is a first for women, as it is the first time that women will be represented in every country.

And in Team GB, women make up 48% of the team which means that us girls may well bring home more medals than the men.

And we are doing pretty well so far, with Rebecca Adlington scooping Bronze in the  400metres freestyle, while Lizzie Armistead scooped Silver in cycling at the weekend.

‘I’m pretty chuffed,’ she said. ‘I feel increadible, really, really happy. Hopefully, I have got the GB ball rolling now.’

But what is even more valuable than the medals is the inspirational effect that watching these women may have on women all around the world.

Think it’s just winning medals that creates happiness? Any exercise gives you a sense of accomplishment and fills you with feel good endrophins. Which is far more valuable than a Jimmy Choo pair of shoes, or Burberry handbag.

To help spread the empowerment of women through sport and exercise, FitBitch Boot Camp and running club will give one free session to a running club Wednesday night training session, or a Tuesday night Boxing Belles session (both at 7.30pm) to every new member whenever a Team GB woman wins a medal.

All you have to do is email us with the subject matter, Go Girls, and we will give you a date in the next available sessions (spaces are limited).

Together with the Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation (WSFF),  which has launched its Go Girl campaign, to help keep the legagcy of London 2012 going for longer than just the next six weeks, we hope this will help women from all different walks of life realise that they can become an inspiration to others too.


Terms and Conditions apply. All applications for free spaces must be made before the Closing Ceremony on August 12 and is open to women only, when a TEam GB female athlete scoops a medal. One session per person only.


Follow Liz and Rebecca on Twitter. @L_ArmiTstead @beckadlington

Boxing Belles, starts Tues 26th June, 7.30pm

May 31, 2012 at 5:58

Lloyd doing his best impression of Raging Bull


Love boxing and know how valuable kettlebells are in shaping your body? Then you will LOVE our brand new evening camps.

Just twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm, this camp is all about boxing and the bells.

We are excited to announce we have the fantastic, professional boxer, Lloyd Ellet on board to take our boxing sessions (he will also be dropping in our morning camps).

Lloyd is both brain and brawn, having done a Msc in Sport Science and Exercise Physiology and currently competes in the ring. If that isn’t enough he also teaches at a school for kids with challenging behaviours.

He has coached FitBitch founder, Rachael Woolston, who has been taken classes with former WBA Heavy weight, David Haye and she rates Lloyd highly for is approachable, fun way of coaching and his expertise.

At FitBitch, we only employ the very best. And in line with our morning camps, we will only be allowing 14 women in each boxing belles session in order to ensure each woman receives personalised, expert instruction.

This helps create the greatest change and is better for you and your understanding of exercise.

The only difference between this and our morning camps is that there will be no personalised homework at weekends, nor pre and post assessments. It will be just our usual dose of unadulterated, endorphin rocket fuel.

Start on day one, and the camp will build and progress throughout the four weeks, developing your boxing and conditioning.

Can’t commit to twice a week? Drop ins are available for graduates and for those new to FitBitch but you must take  a 90 minute master class which will go through the boxing moves and kettlebell movements first.

We require you to do this master class first (only if you are dropping in, if doing the full camp you don’t need to do this), to ensure you can do the exercises correctly without injury, and to make sure the rest of the class is not held up while exercises are taught to new people.

Fitbitch creates physical change. But it is much more than this. It makes you feel great and fundamentally changes your view of what you can achieve.

Come and find out for yourself. Click the link below to book. If you are interested in drop in (£12) and the master classes (£20) email with the subject title Boxing Belles.

Our four week camp dates for Boxing Belles will run as follows, costing £80 for the four weeks. And for the next two weeks only, we are offering two camps for £130 – you must tell us the months you are doing when you book. Get this while you can as these camps will sell out.**

26th June – 19th July

27th July – 16th August

21st August – 13th September

17th September – 11th October

** No refunds are given on camps once booked,  nor can sessions be transferred or carried over.
