I have always been intrigued by a weight-loss boot camp and their reviews I have read about in magazines. It seems the results have proved very successful and I would like to have the same experience as I know I will work hard and continue to follow the advice and steps suggested by the trainers and nutritionists at the Reboot camp.

I would love to be a size 12 by December this year. My target weight is 10.7lb stone I am currently 12 stone.
