    Jan has done an incredible job of curating a holistic programme that is varied, fun and looks after your body.

  • If Carlsberg did boot camps
    September, 2021
    What an incredible week! I am 57 and kind of  fit but the support, help, fun, great activities, amazing food, made this a great experience! I never thought I could do an assault course, I loved it.  Jan pushed me but never beyond what I could do, I learnt so much from him, I went with a friend but would happily go again alone. The best holiday and guess what you come home looking and feeling ...

    September, 2021
    My first fitness bootcamp and I couldn't have enjoyed it more. Jan makes it accessible to every fitness level - you only have to be willing to be challenged and leave your comfort zone.

  • Had the best week
    September, 2021
    Spent a week with the team at Bootcamp Marbella in September 2021 and had the best week. I came away from the trip much fitter and healthier thanks to the excellent and varied workouts (runs, beach workouts, weights sessions, hikes, cycles, boxing, yoga, stretching, assault course etc). The food was also excellent, primarily eating at healthy restaurants in Marbella which was accompanied by a ...
  • To me, there is only one Boot Camp Marbella! (despite some copycat imitations out there) I spent a week here in September 2021 and it was one of the best spur of the moment decisions I've ever made. The bootcamp includes a mix of all types of exercise with a great balance of high-intensity training, weights, cardiovascular, flexibility and functional fitness, as well as grounding activities in ...
  • I don't usually write reviews, but the amazing time I spent on this bootcamp made me really wanna go out of my way to drop this review. I found this bootcamp on google, by the time I finished reading the very good reviews, I booked my week. I am writing this review because I don't think it was clear enough how awesome is this boot camp. I don't think 5 stars give it justice. I truly consider it ...


  • Worked like clockwork
    September, 2020

Everything was really well organised, and the variety of activities every day was something that I loved, as it provided the right amount of challenge and fun for us all. Through Jan and the other trainers´ motivation I felt I pushed myself to limits I didn´t even know I had, which was a great feeling. The ...
  • The essence of Boot Camp Marbella cannot be captured in words or photos.
