Should I notify Prestige Boot Camp if I have any injuries, illness or allergies?

This will allow us to adapt your training program and menu to suit your individual requirements. We would also require a letter from your doctor to say that you are fit and well enough to attend PBC.

What dietary advice will I receive after the boot camp?

Following your stay with us at Prestige, we will continue to offer assistance with dietary advice and provide you with a flexible nutrition plan to take home. This has been compiled by our registered dieticians.

Our plans for home will help you achieve the following:

Improve your intake of wholegrain foods rich in long lasting energy

Meals are based around starchy foods such as cereals, rice, pasta, potatoes and bread. They should make up about 1/3 of the energy we eat. These foods contain not only energy, but can contain fibre, B vitamins, iron and some calcium.

Each meal should provide a good portion of these foods. They are not fattening unless you add too much fat (i.e. oil and butter to them).

Wholegrain varieties are much better because they are digested more slowly, contain more fibre and make us feel fuller for longer

Include a moderate intake of protein rich foods, including foods essential for strength and well being

Some diets are based on high protein intakes- far more than our body actually needs. Our plans are based around giving you the right amount of protein- using foods low in saturated fat to provide this.

Fish in particular is a good source of protein and oily fish will contain omega 3 fats which keep our heart healthy

Include a good intake of calcium containing foods for optimal bone health.

Our plans aim to encourage 3 portions of calcium containing foods each day, from a variety of sources. Combined with weight bearing exercise, calcium is necessary for a healthy bone turnover and a strong skeleton.

Eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day

We all know we should be eating more fruit and vegetables but a lot of us still don’t eat 5 a day! Our plans will include plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables- giving a good intake of vitamins, minerals and fibre and helping us to feel great.

Reduce the amount of salt and sugar you eat.

We will encourage you to choose foods using as many fresh ingredients as possible. However, we will be realistic and support you with guidelines for choosing take always and shop bought ready meals for those times when life is busy.

A lower salt intake is important to reduce the risk of cardiovascular related illnesses such as stroke and heart disease.

Cutting down on sugar means a lower calorie intake which will help with weight reduction- It’s also better for you teeth.

Hopefully our snack ideas will help you to change to a healthier way of eating.
