Stuart Garbutt, who is the Year Five teacher at the school, set up ‘Boot Camp’ to inspire and motivate children to adopt healthy habits and attitudes.

Children from Years Four, Five and Six at Westbourne Primary School take part in the Boot Camp every Wednesday during lunch time. Using the principles of high intensity interval training, children exercise intensely for 25 seconds before resting for 35 seconds.

Mr Garbutt said: “The club has been running for two weeks so far and it’s been a hit with all children and parents, who have all commented positively about how the children have enjoyed it!”

Adam Boyd-Brown, a personal trainer from Grenade Fit and Built by Brown, made a surprise visit to Boot Club on January 25. He led the group in a special training session designed to show them how exercising can be fun, exciting and doable anywhere.
