Sniper Fitness originally started back in 2013 and since then...
- It has WON the North Yorkshire Business Awards 2019 "Best Fitness Business."
- Twice nominated for a Yorkshire Choice Award.
- Named UK gym of the month by Boutique Gyms UK!
Why did we start Sniper? We believe the mainstream format of exercise provision is flawed! You go to a new exercise facility, get shown around, pay your membership, get the complimentary induction… and then… nothing… you are just left to go it alone!
At Sniper we decided that service, education and motivation are the most important factors in providing long-term, sustainable results for our recruits and more importantly... to enjoy exercising!
Therefore our ‘Rules of Engagement’ to our recruits at every Sniper workout are based on these three fundamentals:
1. MOTIVATION EVERY REP OF THE WAY
2. EDUCATION EVERY WORKOUT
3. NEVER TRAIN ALONE
"THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHO YOU ARE AND WHO YOU WANT TO BE IS WHAT YOU DO!"
WHY ENROL TO THE RANKS OF #TEAMSNIPER
Sniper operations are available either in our original format; Sniper Bootcamps, based in the great outdoors on Scarborough's north side beach front or as Sniper HQ 300 based at Londesborough Road Business Park (rear of unit 7, next door to Spectrum Cleaners - click here for Google map) where you will find our 2,300 sq/ft ‘Battlefield’ armed with every possible exercise option available… from a Frog to a Tank!
Sniper workouts are based upon performing your choice of any of our 1-HOUR Drill Sergeant lead, educational, motivational and structured Sniper 'operations.'
Our ‘aim’ as a Sniper Drill Sergeant is to motivate YOU to give your 100% no matter what your age, sex, size or current fitness level, in an environment that is all about teamwork to achieve results which you could not alone. #hellyeah
Choose from working out in the great outdoors alongside Mother Nature with Sniper Bootcamps in either Scarborough or Filey, or instead take cover and join us at Sniper HQ 300 where our ‘Battlefield’ is always armed and ready for you!
If you want to see what #teamsniper looks like in action on a daily basis then simply take a look at our Facebook page by clicking here.
Our original outdoor and twice nominated Yorkshire Choice Awards bootcamp!
Once booked, simple meet at Peasholm Park Lower Car park where a Drill Sergeant will take you through your paces.
After an initial warm-up (10-minutes) you will then be taken through the teaching points and techniques of the body weight exercises you will be performing for that particular operation (10-25 minutes).
After which, you will take on one of our high intensity operations that last between 24-30 minutes in duration, either as an individual, partnership or team. Followed by a cool down and stretch off.
Sniper workouts, aka 'operations' are based upon performing functional exercises and use a mixture of movement patterns, runs, body weight, plyometric and isometric exercises.
Fresh air never felt so good with a little sun, sea and…sweat!
ATTENTION MUMS... AND DADS! DON'T FORGET BUGGY BOOTCAMPS
Become you again with Sniper Buggy Bootcamps available BOTH undercover at Sniper HQ300 or in the great outdoors.
A bootcamp designed to suit all fitness levels and needs allowing you to get back into shape at your own pace, whilst also getting out and about in the fresh air with your baby and meeting other new mums... or dads... with the same goal.
WHEN CAN I START?
Our recommendation is that you wait at least 6 weeks (8-12 weeks for a C-section) after giving birth. However, at your postnatal check-up you will be advised as soon as you have the all clear to exercise.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Apart from the obvious... your baby and buggy, we would suggest that you bring a bottle of water, if participating outside, put plenty of layers on along with waterproofs for yourself and the buggy. Make sure you wear exercise bottoms that will not restrict movement and sensible trainers.
Regarding your buggy! Any pram/pushchair will do when outside as we stick to smooth terrain so you will not have a problem maneuvering.
WHAT WILL YOU GAIN FROM PARTICIPATING IN A SNIPER BUGGY BOOTCAMP?
1. Weight loss and improved fitness.
2. Make friends for yourself and your baby.
3. No need for babysitters.
4. Spend quality time with your baby.
5. Help to avoid or alleviate symptoms of post-natal depression.
6. Become involved with a network of mums to share advice and experiences with... may be even a coffee after the session.
SNIPER HQ 300
So why HQ 300? Sniper is all about providing the best possible service, education and motivation to each and every recruit, as well making sure they have the ability to reserve as many operations as they individual required each week.
To do this we have therefore decided to ONLY provide 300 memberships! ONCE THEY HAVE GONE... THEY HAVE GONE!
We don’t believe in membership contracts, but if you want results for the long term, then consistency and commit rule!
Once the 300 memberships are full, a waiting list will be provided on a first come first served basis and when a membership becomes available we will contact the individual to welcome them into the ranks of #teamsniper.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A SNIPER HQ 300 CLASS?
Our Sniper HQ 300 indoor classes are designed and delivered much like our famous Sniper bootcamp operations... varied, exciting, functional training in every format imaginable. Everything from ab work, cardio, strength work, speed drills, partner based workouts, team challenges… you name it we have it! But unlike our bootcamps with one very major difference...
Unique to Scarborough, our 2,300 sq/ft ‘battlefield’ allows for the use of ‘urban’ equipment such as tyres, sledges, battle ropes, maze bells, kegs, as well as some more usual pieces of kit such as, bungee cords, our A-frame climb, 5-meter climbing ropes, tanks and yes… even a frog.
This equipment is utilised in our workouts to yield the fastest results for you, in an exciting and enjoyable exercise format with more variation than ever before… a winning combination!
SNIPER LOCKDOWN PRIVATE ONLINE FACEBOOK TRAINING GROUP... STAY FIT... STAY SOCIAL... STAY SAFE!
When Covid first appeared and the lights at Sniper HQ had to be turned off, we decided to keep EVERYONE... be it a Sniper recruit or not... motivated both physically and mentally when they needed it the most, with online workouts that were truely motivational, educational and social ,by using our Facebook platform to provide both pre-recorded and live classes.
It became so successful, that before lockdown was eased we had over 1000 members in our private #Sniperlockdown group performing our workouts and staying social, from the comfort of their homes, offices or even in the great outdoors.
The feedback was such, that we decided to keep an online presence for our classes and now we have hundreds of classes to choose from with 16 new classes added and performed LIVE for you to participate in each month, to use at your convenience from the private Facebook group, including spinning, kettlebells, step, bands, disc and bodyweight classes.
If you are a member of the Sniper 300 the online service is completely FREE and you are automatically entered into the private facebook group to provide you with convenient online workouts when ever you need them.
IMPORTANT: As memberships are constantly changing with new enrolments, terminations, FREE trials, promotional offers etc, we periodically check through our memberships to make sure all those entitled to the online lockdown membership are enroled.
To make sure you are enroled in the private lockdown group as soon as possible, please contact ourselves via the website to confirm your position in our lockdown ranks.
Please Note: you are only included in the lockdown ranks once your membership month has been activated and NOT on the date of payment. Your monthly membership works along side your online lockdown membership!

CHILDREN PARTICIPATING IN SNIPER BOOTCAMP OR HQ SESSIONS?
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
Children from 14-years old can have a full membership (single, partnership and/or student) inorder to participate in ALL Sniper HQ and outdoor bootcamps. Upon purchasing a membership a disclaimer will be required from an adult as they are under 16-years old. This disclaimer will be provided upon the initial one-to-one with a Drill Sergeant. Unfortunately,as the Open Gym classes have no instructor present, if they wish to attend these sessions, an adult must accompany them.
Children 15-years old and younger can participate in any of our Sniper Buggy Bootcamp, HQ or School's Out sessions for FREE! (See sessions in PINK on timetable!)
Children 16+ years old are classed as adult members and are therefore required to enrol in order to participate unaccompanied to any bootcamp or HQ session.
Depending on the set-up (intensity/volume/difficulty) of a particular Sniper session, final discretion of whether a child is allowed to participate or not comes down to the Drill Sergeant discretion taking the class at the time.
Finally, if your child is younger than 14-years old and you wish for them to have a full membership, please contact us as these rules are under constant review depending on each individual.
