How to master running inspired bootcamp sessions from start to finish
We love that feeling you get when you pull off a session perfectly. You know, when clients walk away in that perfect balance of worn out and feeling accomplished.
We also know it's not easy to pull off. There are a lot of variables in a workout like the fitness levels of your clients, what equipment is needed and how much space you have.
Between us (Kyle Wood and Dale Sidebottom), we've worked out how to get that effect pretty much every workout no matter the fitness levels, equipment or location. That's why we're putting on a live, face to face workshop in which we'll show you how you can do it too.
You'll learn how to plan your own awesome sessions, you'll get a bunch of example ideas (we'll have you try each drill) and you'll get to meet some pretty amazing trainers.
How is this different to similar courses?
There are some great courses out there however, the big difference with our course is the type of trainer we attract. We (Dale and Kyle) try to present our real, authentic selves online, we're passionate about improving the fitness industry and we try to mix what we love with our business.
From this place we seem to attract really amazing trainers. Trainers who want to create something a little different with their bootcamp. Trainers who know their clients and what their clients want intimately. Trainers who have found great success doing what they love.
Other courses are for everyone. We want to create courses for those trainers that want to stand out from the pack and make a difference.

About The Presenters
The Trainers Tribe
We wanted to create an honest, transparent resource for trainers to help them with all aspects of training and running a small fitness business.
Here's a little more about Kyle and Dale:
About Kyle Wood
Kyle Wood is a husband and a complete board game geek. He became a trainer in 2009 as something to enjoy outside of work hours and to battle the drudgery of working as an engineer. He immediately loved the face to face aspect and bringing creativity and technicality into planning workouts and exercises.
In 2010, while searching online for ideas to use at his bootcamp he realised that there wasn't much out there for bootcamp trainers. So he created BootcampIdeas.com and started sharing some of the new and interesting things he was doing at his sessions.
6 years later Bootcamp Ideas is followed by trainers from over 70 countries. Over 400,000 people visit the site each year. Kyle has published 3 books and co-authored another on the topic of bootcamps. He also co-hosts a weekly podcast, The Trainers Tribe, which helps trainers run awesome sessions and create really cool fitness businesses.
That's all the businessy stuff about Kyle (can I stop writing in the third person now?). I am a big believer in being more than your work so here's a little more about me personally. I love the beach, I have a fondness for dark chocolate, also coffee, I love being able to work from whereever I have a laptop but as much as that's great I love getting in a room with people, face to face and going deep. I love to explore, you'll never really find me lounging by a pool on a holiday. I'll be out hiking or eating somewhere.
