WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Where are you based?

When are the classes?
You can book classes and view the live timetable click here
Additional classes are added to the schedule ad hoc, keep a look out!
How much are the classes?
Option 1: A single class is £10. The most expensive option. We encourage you to try more than one class. Trying a single class doesn’t give you a full idea of Blackheath Bootcamp as each class is a bit different. Unused classes expire after 6 months.
Option 2: Class cards - Classes are just £5 each, you need to buy 3 at a time, so each 3 class card is £15. Perfect if you’re trying us out or only visiting once a week. Class cards have an 8 week expiry form the date of first use. All unused cards expire after 6 months. When you’re on the booking site you will see this option listed underneath the ‘Single Class’.
Option 3: Unlimited 28 days - £30. Just select the first class you want to attend and purchase the pass. The 28 days will begin from that first class.
Option 4: We offer our weight loss Shred Programme 3 times per year. It’s £60 for 2 calendar months and includes a full programme of support, weekly weigh ins, extra classes and menu plans and food strategy. To purchase you need to select your first weigh in on the timetable and then you will see ticket options. You need to purchase the appropriate shred class pass.
Summer Shred - July & August (last date to join 7th July)
Festive Shred - October & November (last date to join is 7th October)
Bikini Shred - April & May (last date to join is 7th April)
Option 5: Couch to 5k Programme includes the couch to 5k runs and unlimited bootcamp. This runs twice a year, in August and in May. It’s £30 for calendar month.
Please note that no refunds are given for any reason. We do not freeze, extend or refund any type of package. Blackheath Bootcamp is run as a budget low cost service for Blackheath locals. We do all that we can to keep the costs low for our customers. We may occasionally cancel classes due to extreme weather conditions or sickness. Unlimited passes are not extended or part-refunded for this. An online booking fee will also be added at the checkout.
How much are mummy & buggy classes?
£45 per hour. You can invite up to 5 friends to share this class with you and split the cost. Choose the best time for your group to workout, choose the best type of class, choose the intensity level. Babies, toddlers and children very welcome.
Do I have to commit to a time period?
No, we have participants that join us for both occasional and regular classes. You can dip in and out as it suits you.
I’m a complete beginner, will I be ok?
We welcome all fitness levels. Even complete beginners who may say “I couldn’t run 50 yards for a bus”. The classes are structured in such a way that you can gently gather fitness and strength alongside others who are fitter than you. We always have some complete beginners in every class. Adaptations are given for all exercises, base level, intermediate and advanced. We have varying weights and strength categories. If we’re running there are always short, medium and longer runs. The group is extremely welcoming and inclusive. As a total beginner you may prefer to miss the warrior class on Thursday evening.
I’m fit already, will the class be challenging for me?
Yes! Just trust us on that. Come and find out how we make that happen.
What should I wear and bring?
Layers are really important. The heath can be windy so arrive with an extra layer. In the winter it’s important to arrive in a winter coat that you can take off once you warm up. This is especially important for after the workout as well. Gloves are handy as every workout you will have your hands on the ground. Bring a water bottle with you.
I have an injury, is it possible to skip certain exercises?
Absolutely, we encourage you to gently rehab any injuries with great care. Whenever possible we will give you alternative exercises or you can just sit one out.
How do I join?
Go to our booking system (link below). You’ll be able to see the timetable, then the first step is to purchase a ticket type. The tickets available are on the bottom right of the booking page.

Do I need to book classes?
Yes! You need to book classes on our booking system. You can book classes up to a month in advance provided you have a valid class card or unlimited ticket. Please visit the booking system to purchase a ticket and book classes.
Can I cancel a booked class?
You can cancel booked classes up to 5 hours before the class. This gives us time to offer the space to another participant.
What if I cancel late (in less than 5 hours)?
If you have a class card you will lose a class.
Unlimited ticket holders can late cancel 3 times per month. Any more than 3 times per month and you lose the opportunity to reserve classes the following month.
Do you have a waiting list if the class is full?
Yes we do. When you go to book a full class you will be offered the waiting list. If a space becomes available we email the first in line on the waiting list. After 45 minutes we email the next in line and so on and so on. So on the waiting list you need to check your emails. This is why the late cancel needs to be 5 hours before so that we have time to offer the space to another participant.
Why do I have to pay a booking fee?
In order to keep the costs as low as possible for these bootcamp classes the worldpay card fees are being added at the checkout. It’s 2.75% + £0.20 per booking. This will mean a fee of between £.060 and £1.57 will be added to your purchase.
Do you have an app?
No, but our booking system and website can be used on your smartphone web browser.
How long will it take to see results?
That depends on how often you attend and your diet. Even doing just one class a week you will notice strength gains after 3 classes. Attending 2-3 classes weekly you’ll very quickly become stronger and more flexible. If you want to re-shape or lose weight then your diet will also be an important factor (see below about nutrition).
Do you offer nutrition plans?
Yes our Summer Shred Programme offers you the chance to learn an effective way to reduce body fat. Please get in touch if you’d like to know more.
What can I expect at the workouts?
The best thing about Blackheath Bootcamp is the variety in the classes, they’re always changing. To get an idea of the things we do have a look at our social media pages for photos and videos @blackheathbootcamp.

What ages are participants?
