The Fresh Start boot camp fitness vacations were founded by Richard and Louise Thomas in January 2010.
Their special and unique program was created bringing together their combined wealth of fitness and health knowledge.
Richard was a Physical Training Instructor in the Elite Royal Marines for 12 years. He completed tours of duty in Iraq and Northern Ireland. Louise has been a group exercise teacher for over 2 decades and has a degree in Sport Studies.
They have devised a challenging but do-able, varied and entertaining week. It’s packed full of outdoor activities to help you achieve your fitness, health and weight loss goals. Their program is constantly evolving as they listen to the feedback from their guests.
