About Director Roseanna Gorman

Up until a few years ago, I was constantly exhausted, stressed, couldn’t sleep, and couldn’t focus. For far too long I was told that how I felt was “normal” – most people had one or two of these issues, and you just needed to take a pill to fix it. For a while, I believed it – I thought that this was just how life in western society was. Being tired and stressed out about money, work etc was just part of the game – and if you didn’t have these problems, you were extremely ‘lucky’.

In early 2014 I had reached my limit and I decided that it was time to lose some weight and change my overly busy, rather unhealthy lifestyle. I would survive off store bought sandwiches and snacks during the work day and I couldn’t understand why I would have sugar cravings and irritability in the afternoons. So, I attended a hardcore bootcamp which promoted extremely intense exercise for long periods of time combined with a diet which promoted calorie restriction. I wanted to lose weight and I did… for a time at least. It then occurred to me that not everyone has the financial means or physical ability to put themselves through such a grueling week at boot camp and the chances of them maintaining their exercise routine and diet afterwards were slim to none.

Around the same time as I attended the bootcamp, a friend introduced me to the Paleo diet. The idea of eating fresh, unprocessed foods largely consisting of meat, fruits, vegetables and nuts sounded great to me – so I dove right in. Fast forward to 6 months later – I had more energy than I could have EVER imagined previously, my mind was clear, I felt stronger and happier in myself, and my sleepless nights were a thing of the past. Oh, and I was leaner than I had ever been. It was at this point that I decided to leave my old life behind and move to sunny Spain to create Aurora bootcamp- a Paleo Lifestyle bootcamp focusing on helping people learn about and make a transition to a healthier lifestyle, which didn’t involve calorie restriction, over exercising and was sustainable and not only that, enjoyable.

Aurora Reviews

I had the best week; both achieving my goal to lose weight and ultimately, get fitter!
You truly don’t know how much you are capable of until you are in an environment like this!
Something I’d suggest for everyone to do at least once.
Such a fun day. Thanks so much. See you all again soon.
A great kick start to get back into shape.
I have been on 9 bootcamps and the trainers on this bootcamp were the most fun, energetic, motivational… every session was packed full of laughter AND hard work. The beach training was great! Well done!
