Bootcamp Testimonials

Kind words from happy customers

Sharon before running the Cardiff World Half Marathon Championships in March 2016

‘I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Calon Lan Boot Camp which I have been going to for the last two years. Sian’s workouts are matched with a tremendous sense of humour and her enthusiasm and encouragement is inspirational! Sian places a high value on correct technique with each exercise and I always feel safe under her guidance. My energy, flexibility and stamina have all improved and at 58 years of age I have never felt fitter
Thank you Sian you are a star!’

Carol running the Race for Life Pretty Muddy 10K in September 2016.

‘I am 50, 5’ 3” size 18-20. Six months later I am still 50, 5’ 3” now size 14-16!

Thank you Sian for making exercise work for me, for your encouragement, your fun & your chat.

I’ve dieted for at least the last 2 years and I’ve not been happy with the plans or the results.

I considered a Personal Trainer, I knew I had to exercise but didn’t want to. I am a real couch potato!!! I like watching TV, films, reading, knitting, sewing, socialising with friends, drinking & eating.

I was 50 and unhappy with how I felt in my birthday dress.
I thought some more about PT, is it a fad? Is it expensive? Are the trainers really sporty & shouty?

So I googled for a local lady trainer and found Calon Lan Personal Training.

I read all the information on Sian’s website. The packages page encouraged me, could I really change my body in 12 weeks?

Yes I did!!! It was hard work, the commitment, the change of routine but funny not so much the exercise!?!

It’s all so cliché but I really do enjoy exercising now. It took me a good 8 to 10 weeks to settle into the routine. I go to Sian’s Bootcamp exercise class twice a week as well as having a personal session with her once a week.

After 12 weeks I nervously asked Sian to measure me, I knew my shape had changed but WOW 30cms less in total from around my body, I was so happy!

I also entered my first ever sport event, the Race For Life 10K in September this year after having trained with Sian for just five months. I didn’t even have games lessons in school.

This is how Sian encourages & inspires, she makes the changes achievable and it works!!’

Before                              After

‘I first joined Sian’s class back in October 2012 along with my Sister-in-law . Although I have exercised in the past I hadn’t got back into anything that I had stuck to since the birth of my first child but after less than 3 months of attending the class managed to drop a dress size in time for Christmas. I then became pregnant with my second child in early January 2013 and unfortunately didn’t return to the class until the following year. Since the early part of 2014 I have been a regular member of Sian’s class and managed to lose all my baby weight and then some! I’ve been able to develop my fitness to a level I never thought I would get to because of Sian including doing full press ups! It has increased my confidence in my fitness and I have even taken part in 10k assault courses which prior to joining Sian’s class I would never have entertained the idea. The class never feels like a chore to the extent that I get annoyed if I can’t make a class! I really enjoy the friendly no pressure atmosphere and there is a lot of variation from week to week in the circuits that we do which keeps things interesting. The support and advice that Sian’s provides is absolutely excellent and provides lots of useful nutritional information. I have recommended this class to many friends and family and even my husband has joined now!’

‘Great classes for all abilities and all ages. Sian makes working out fun!’

Gill F, Culverhouse Cross

‘Signing up for Calon Lan Bootcamp with Sian is one of the best things I’ve ever done. I’ve always tried countless gyms and classes that go straight out the window.

Sian makes everyone feel welcome and makes exercising fun with her bubbly personality and is always willing to help.The classes are always varied and tailored so that you can go at your own pace. I always feel great after the classes and my fitness over the past year has improved so much.’

Olivia F, Cathays

‘I joined boot camp before my wedding to lose weight and tone up. It was the best thing I have done for a long time. I toned and felt great about myself. I got pregnant quickly after the wedding and I have put on a bit of weight. I have recently joined again and I feel so much better for it. I’m in control of my eating and the exercise makes me feel great. The main reason for this is Sian. She’s so supportive, lovely and friendly. She is the reason people return – because she genuinely cares. I didn’t realise how much I missed it, or her, till I returned.’

Betsan D, Whitchurch

‘I’ve done quite a bit of sport in the past and although my fitness is not what it used to be I still like to be challenged without feeling like I’m at a military camp. Sian at Calon Lan Boot Camp does just that, I’ve never come away from a boot camp feeling like I haven’t worked hard and been invigorated by the ever-changing workouts and challenges Sian plans. She creates a supportive and fun environment where no matter what your fitness level you can feel confident and safe. One of the best fitness coaches I’ve known.’

Ursula P, Radyr

‘I never thought I’d enjoy a fitness class as much as I enjoy Sian’s bootcamp!! Every session is different which keeps it interesting and varied. A former PT client of Sian’s I now use the classes to keep the weight off, keep my fitness levels up and most of all HAVE FUN!! Great variety of music too (most of the time!!)’

Angharad, Victoria Park

‘I have been going to Sian’s Boot Camp for nearly 6 months now and my fitness has really improved. I can only manage 1 session a week but the classes are very friendly and always varied. I don’t like the gym so this is a great way of doing aerobic exercise!’

Sarah, Whitchurch

‘I love bootcamp sessions as they are always different, challenging and fun! I have never stuck to or enjoyed any other sort of fitness class like this one! I come away feeling like I’ve had an amazing workout every time. Sian is brilliant and very motivating.’

Lauren, Radyr

‘A fantastic bootcamp! I have tried many exercise classes and gyms in my time, but nothing compares or has kept my interest for as long as Calon Lan Bootcamp. Sian varies the classes extremely well to accommodate all abilities and limitations, and keeps things fresh with new ideas and workouts on a regular basis. This is a fun filled and effective bootcamp that shouldn’t be missed!’

Kelly, Radyr

‘Boot camp is a great environment to get fit and meet new people, whatever your age, fitness level and experience. Sian is welcoming, friendly, super knowledgeable and can adapt every workout to ability and injuries. There is no element of intimidation and you leave feeling great every time. I cannot recommend enough.’
