Kathryn Thomas is enlisting the help of an expert matchmaker to find the right mix of participants for her upcoming singles bootcamp.
The RTE star will return to the wiles of Kerry next month for another season of her Pure Results bootcamp and this year, she is introducing a week for those looking for love.
Jennifer Haskins from agency Two’s Company has come on board to facilitate the signing up of singletons looking to relax and potentially find someone at the special boot camp.
“Jennifer is an expert so when guys and gals get in touch about the camp we pass them onto her to make sure that the mix and age group is right,” Kathryn told the Herald.
"I think it is a great opportunity for people to get away to a relaxing environment, focus on themselves, have some fun and meet new people."
We are encouraging people to bring a friend or a wing man if they feel more comfortable and our quota for females is already full, she added.
The singles boot camp, with prices starting from €999 for shared accomodation, kicks off at Parknasilla Resort from May 13-20.
Around 30 places are up for grabs with the possibilty of more spaces being made available.
While men are traditionally less likely to put themselves forward, Kathryn said male interest is also high with places available going quickly.
The week, which includes activities such as night kayaking, sea trampolining and a special speed dating circuit class, was inspired after a couple got together after meeting at Kathryn's inaugural bootcamp season last year.
Two's Company CEO Jennifer will be involved in the initial stages to profile those interested in the camp and making sure they are ready to get the most out of the week.
Once they get to picturesque Sneem, the group will be put through their paces by the fitness team and onsite coaches.
"I think the camp is a great idea, I had a really good chat with Kathryn and was delighted to get involved," she told the Herald.
"I will just be chatting to people before they head down and will be taking a holistic approach to things, she added.
