Kathryn Thomas is known for her trim figure, but she says she's not working out as much as she thought she would because she's become "mother hen" to all her clients.

The RTE presenter (right) launched her intense week-long bootcamp called Pure Fitness in Cork earlier this summer with great success.

"I thought I was going to do a little more training than I did," she said.


"I ended up doing all the shopping and collecting the towels, or making the tea and giving hugs while cleaning up. It's a lot of organisation between looking after the clients and making sure everything is running smoothly, that supplies run on time, classes run on time and the changeover is seamless.

"So it's like having a mini hotel where you also act as a therapist for the clients who are obviously going through a detox.

"It's been a great success. We had one guy lose 16 pounds in the week, and overall 41 stone is the total of what clients lost."
