On Tuesday and Saturday our workouts, taught by Sylvia, focus on strength using dumbbells, kettlebells, bands and battle ropes.
On others days our workouts focus on bodyweight conditioning with additional resistance bands.
Sessions start and end with stretches and mobilities to safely and effectively prepare for and cool down from the workouts.
The body of the class consists of a diverse selection of circuits, team exercises, partner exercises (currently no physical contact), tabatas, challenges, runs and games. Most sessions have some sort of teamwork component and members are always encouraged to support one another.

Members bring their own mats and bands to maintain distancing.
We train on the grass when it is dry, on the courts when the grass is wet and under the railway arches in the rain. We are responsive to the weather conditions and ensure everyone can have a safe and effective workout in all seasons!
All exercises are scaleable, so can be made more challenging or regressed/substituted as required for each member’s workout needs. Sessions are varied to keep members mentally and physically on their toes.

Ravenscourt Bootcamp is owned by Ravenscourt local Adele Andersen, an unnecessarily energetic Australian fitness professional who absolutely adores group exercise.
Adele has been teaching group exercise classes for 12 years and has been teaching bootcamp in Ravenscourt Park since November 2012. She is also a fully qualified personal trainer.
She brings infectious energy, varied exercise plans, a spirit of camaraderie and relentless encouragement to class and ensures cover instructors are similarly supportive to members.
You can also train with Adele live and on demand on zoom at Adele Andersen Fit Online, or on your phone with Apocalypse Survival Training, a ground breaking entertainment fitness app from her start-up company Imaginactive.
Sylvia was one of those strange girls at school who looked forward to PE, enjoying rugby, tennis, gymnastics, swimming, discus and track to name few. She kept up her sports throughout college and university before starting to teach body conditioning and circuits classes for gyms.
Sylva is also part of the Great British Power lifting Federation. She started competitively powerlifting a year ago and soon after qualified for the Womens British Classic Championships. Her current stats are an impressive bench 97.5kg, squat 130kg and deadlift 155kg.
Sylvia first came to Ravenscourt Bootcamp as a cover instructor for Adele, but was immediately adored by the classes. She has a brilliant way of motivating the classes and is always driving them to get one more rep!
