The Un-Boot Camp

Catherine Carden and Virginia Bower

In this blog, Catherine and Virginia describe an interesting conference experience!

Once upon a time, many calories ago we were invited to a prestigious conference in the north of England, focusing on innovative digital practices in education. Nothing could have prepared us for the impact on mind and body...

Let’s start with the concept of a ‘normal’ modern day bootcamp experience that has transformed the exercise landscape. That is:

  1. you are unhealthy, unfit and need a rigorous exercise regime to rectify this.

  2. you attend the sessions, do as you are told for an hour or so and leave feeling fitter and healthier (until the next morning when getting out of bed is a serious challenge)
