I have been attending Andy’s boot camp classes since September 2012. Each class begins with interval training along the Folkestone Leas – which certainly blows away the cobwebs – and is followed by indoor circuits. The class sizes are small enough that Andy is able to give 1 to 1 advice if it is needed, and he always motivates you to push yourself as far as you can. His personable style also means that the class isn’t intimidating for any newcomers and everyone is always warmly welcomed. This class is a guaranteed endorphins boost! – Katie
I just wanted to thank you for all your help and encouragement that you showed and gave me whilst training with you. If it wasn’t for you at the beginning, I wouldn’t have got started on this journey.
Still currently going to Physio and just been referred to a specialist to sort my ankle out!
After careful consideration, I have decided to finish the journey on my own and you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve lost a further 1.5 stone since I last saw you:). I’ve been following S W and going to the gym (swimming, body pump and spinning.) never thought I could ever really do it on my own but you really did give me the push I needed to make me believe that I could and for that I will always be grateful to you!
If ever you need a recommendation, I would have no problem giving one and if anyone asks me about a trainer I am happy to share your information with them:)
I hope that your move went well and that all 3 of you are now settled in the new house?
Who knows, I might come to one of your boot camp classes in a couple of months when I’m fully healed:)
Thank you once again, you really helped me at a time when I didn’t think I could do it and you really motivated me when nobody else could!!
The snail and tortoise race….
Being a 29 year old women you imagine to be fit and healthy. I have always tried to be healthy, constantly looking at what I am eating but I could never say I was fit.
My journey to get fit actually began in September last year and although I have come along way I have another mountain to climb (not literally). I wish I would have videoed my fitness journey to this point and therefore I want to capture part 2 which is what I would like to share with you.
The organisation is going through so much change and I can image everyone is stressed with how much work there is to do or worried about your final destination.
I have found that fitness and exercise to be my outlet over the last few months and I can thank my fitness instructor Andy for making it enjoyable.
Whenever anybody said about going to the gym, I would dismiss it. I really don’t enjoy the routine of the exercise, being in doors and the expense. At the end of last year I was invited to go to boot camp and at first the thought of exercise scared me as I had not done it in years but I decided to give it a go and for under a fiver I could not complain.
I remember my first boot camp, I was extremely nervous and excited and although it was hard I got a buzz that I had not had before and just wanted to continue and get better.
The majority of the exercise is outside even in the winter, that’s what makes it unique. It is a workout like no other, fun, varied, lung bursting and muscle aching but my aim is to just get better and better. I want to be the leader of the group not the snail. I cannot wait for the summer when we go onto the beach and local park, you cannot get better than the sea air.
For Christmas I got personal training sessions with Andy. I had my first one last week. Not only do we look exercise but also healthy eating. Although I do eat healthy I would occasionally have a sneaky chocolate bar once in a while. This week I have been really tough on myself and no chocolate or sugar has past my lips. It has be really hard but hopefully it will be worth it and I cannot wait for my next weigh in.
I want to burn that fat, increase my metabolism, strength and posture so who knows onwards and upwards. I would love to run the 5k ‘race for life’ this year.

I hope you have enjoyed my blog and feel inspired, I know I am and I look forward to keeping you updated.
I have been attending Andy’s Boot camp classes for about 3 months now and thoroughly enjoy them. He is an enthusiastic and dedicated trainer who gives excellent nutritional advice whilst motivating and supporting throughout the class, also exercising outdoors is very invigorating.
It doesn’t matter what your level of fitness or ability is, Andy will encourage and push you to do your best – and a bit more.
I am now totally hooked and found myself missing the classes over the Christmas break.
My fitness level has certainly increased and I can highly recommend Andy’s classes
He looks after you
Andy not only motivates you and pushes you to your maximum, he looks after you. Always checking you are ok and asking for feedback. He mixes it up so that you don’t get bored and the best thing of all is that he really pushes you to get the maximum out of your workout.
Get a sweat on before most people are out of bed
I attend the 6am Wednesday boot camp with Andy, it has to be one of the most professional fun classes I have ever attended. You work hard, get a sweat on all before most people are out of bed, a perfect workout for before work to make you feel refreshed and ready for the day ahead!! Jess
Fitter and faster since doing these classes
I’ve been going to Andy’s boot camp classes for a couple of months now and am really enjoying it. I have a good level of fitness however Andy is really motivational and focuses on High Intensity Impact Training (HIIT), mainly outdoors. It’s been great to get up in the morning (Wednesdays at 6am) or head outside after work (Mondays at 7.30pm) and do a variety of sprints, beach runs, hill runs combined with a variety of other exercises. The hour whizzes by yet you really feel it and the class caters for all levels. I am without doubt fitter and faster since doing these classes, which are excellent value for money. Ben Geering
Mum of 5 kids
I have been training with Andy for over 2 years and have never felt fitter. Andy is always on good form and gets you motivated to try your best and then give that little bit extra! As a working mum of 5 kids I never thought I would enjoy exercise as much as I do, I hated it at school as I wasn’t any good at it but I’m sure I’m not alone in that. It’s great for stress relief and if you were like me and always looked in envy at others wishing that you were brave enough to give it a go,pick up the phone and ring…. don’t wait thinking that you will on day.. make that call today!
Andy is great no matter how unfit you are he would encourage you to do your best he is normal, he understands that we are not all perfect but he is not soft either!
It’s about what you get out of it at the end of the day we all know that we should exercise it’s just a case of biting the bullet and getting going!
Haven’t been this fit since being at school
Andy is a truely brilliant trainer, gives personal attention to everyone in the class and pushes you at just the right level to get a little more out of you.
This is a must attend class for anyone with a desire to get fit, after one class you feel inspired to do more and you use muscles you never knew exsited.
I get the most out of the abs exercises and find myself completing them at home some mornings, the outdoor part of the class is first rate especially on the 6am session.
Haven’t been this fit since being at school. Al.
Andy is very good and keeps you motivated
Wicked…. They say no pain no gain and this is what its all about ! if you love exercising and keeping fit then come along to BOOT CAMP !!! love the variety i.e. Outside on the leas and circuit training in side, Andy is very good and keeps you motivated and also helps if you are struggling a bit. JI.
fresher air, more interesting scenery, more space to move around
Awesome boot camp. Its hard work, but then that is the point. Love pre-paying on-line so I don’t have to remember taking cash with me (and it is cheaper). Didn’t think I would enjoy doing exercise outside in Febuary but you warm up very quicklyand now I prefer being outside than inside – fresher air, more interesting scenery, more space to move around and in the summer it will be amazing over looking the sea. I hope we will spend the whole session outside.
brilliant value for money!
Andy has been a personal trainer to my partner and I since September of last year. He is always extremely encouraging in the sessions and has bought us to a level of fitness that we, as ‘desk jockeys’, didnt believe we would achieve. He also advises on nutrition, lifestyle and goals, and because of this, is brilliant value for money!We would definitely recommend him and have continued our fitness programme largely due to him and his encouragement.
a fitness class,the professionalism,and effectiveness of military circuit training
Since leaving the Royal Navy in October 2009, I’ve been looking for a fitness class that mirrors the professionalism, variety and effectiveness of military circuit training. The boot camp does this and is suitable for people like me, who have let their fitness levels slip! I like the fact that half the class is spent outside whilst muscle groups are targetted and worked on inside afterwards. If you need to start or re-start your fitness regime, this is a really good choice! I always feel energised and upbeat after a class.

andy has been a life saver at times
When a recurring injury happened on a run (not with Andy) then he adapted my program to help rehab and continue training. He also offers support when not in training via email and phone – this has been a life saver at times! I highly recommend his services.
The program Andy provided is excellent and great fun too
I have been using the services of Andy of AK Health and Fitness for over a year. Andy has always been punctual, reliable and friendly. The fitness programme provided has been excellent and is always fun, he has given a lot of advice on diet and fitness and I have seen a great improvement in my overall fitness over the last year.
I would fully recommend Andy King to anyone who was looking to get lose weight and get fit
I found Andy King to be very professional, polite and friendly, whilst also making sure that I was kept motivated in my healthy eating and exercise regime which being a busy mum and housewife was not always easy. I would fully recommend Andy King to anyone who was looking to get lose weight and get fit
Andy couldn’t be a nicer trainer
As a busy working mum of 5 children I didn’t think I would ever start to get fit again. Andy has changed all that, he has given me the confidence to have a go and I have seen such an improvement in myself!! If you are like me and look in envy at others keeping fit or want to encourage your family pick the phone up and ring!! Andy couldn’t be a nicer trainer with all the help and support he has given me I am so proud of myself and more than happy to write a review and hopefully encourage others.
