Boot Camp Comes to Bare Oaks

Be your own best friend with this unique opportunity to train like the ancient Greeks at Bare Oaks' own Summer Boot Camp!  It's the perfect compliment to yoga and aquafit. Naturism is all about a healthy mind in a healthy body!

Your Boot Camp instructor is Margaret, a Bare Oaks member and a certified Canfit Pro Personal Trainer specializing in running and cardio-strength training. She is also a certified swimming instructor/lifeguard and trained in both CPR and First Aid. (hopefully you won't need the latter)

Boot Camp classes will consist of outdoor exercise circuits for up to 12 participants. For one hour, you will sweat through cardio drills, kettlebell swings, and weightlifting reps while Margaret encourages you with personalized tips. Ropes, resistance bands, and TRX suspension cables all play a role in this exciting and challenging class!

Classes start with an introduction on Monday July 2nd at 1pm. (a holiday for most) After that, they will meet on Tuesdays and Thursday at 6:20pm (except for the week of July 23rd) on the lawn in front of the Bare Bistro. (if you miss the intro or the first classes, you can still join in anytime) The class will start with a review of the new exercises and the workout begins at 6:30pm sharp! The cost for each session is $10/person. If you sign up for at least 8 sessions in advance, you will also receive a half hour of personal training with Margaret.

What do you need to bring?  Please bring a small hand towel to use with some of the equipment and to wipe your brow! You will also need to bring a 1L container of water or electrolyte drink with you to keep hydrated. Bring a yoga mat or large towel as you will finish each class with a cool down and stretches that are more comfortable if you use some sort of mat.


  • July: 2, 3, 5, 10, 12, 17, 19, 31
  • August: 2, 7, 14, 16 

Because the sessions are limited to 12 participants, please sign up with the office in advance to ensure that you get a spot.
