Why Choose Outdoor Fitness Classes?

Exercising outdoors is a fun and invigorating way to take your health & fitness to the next level. Outdoors is more adventurous, with an even greater sense of achievement.

Change of scenery – seasons, colours, flowers, trees, lush green grass, blossom, views of London, the Heron and ducks, clear blue skies, stormy or moody skies, atmospheric moonlight, sunsets, sunrises….. all manner of flora and fauna, not to be seen in a gym!

Studies show benefits to activity outdoors due to enhanced stimulation of the body’s ‘feel good’ and ‘calming’ hormones.

What Our Outdoor Fitness Classes Clients Are Saying

Jo tailors each walk to individual needs …

Nordic walking with Jo is not only great fun (when she doesn’t make us climb too many hills!) but great for your fitness level.

Jo tailors each walk to individual needs and all abilities are catered for. Nordic walking is not to be underestimated and is a great way to work your whole body not just your legs.

I personally found it a great start to building up my fitness and I have now progressed to boot camp with Jo too.  Both forms of exercise are enjoyable but also challenging.

Yes, particularly in the Alternative Boot Camp classes, due to our special programming ensuring that all major muscle groups are used (with the use of resistance bands and particular exercises) , as well as a variety of energy systems (HITT , interval and aerobic training) and types of fitness (endurance, strength and flexibility), in every class. Nordic walking also uses the major muscle groups/the whole body and different energy systems (hills/intervals and aerobic) and types of fitness (muscular endurance and flexibility); Boot camp even more so due to its greater variety of exercises and movement…..

I'm not sure of my fitness level, can you advise me?
Yes, we are happy to answer your questions, or concerns, and give you specific advice/guidelines for you to follow in each class. We can advise you on which exercises and intensities that are likely to be best for to begin with.
I'm a complete beginner, will your classes be too hard?
Classes are designed to be ‘suitably challenging’ for everyone, so that you can get fitter. You will be advised and coached to exercise at an intensity which is ‘not too easy’ and ‘not too hard’; however,’ just challenging/hard enough’ for you to get the health and fitness benefits. Therefore, you will choose and be guided to choose an exercise option/intensity which feels ‘hard enough’ for you at that present time. This can vary from class to class, depending on how you are that day; and will also change as you get fitter and healthier.
Outdoors! What if it's raining or snowing?
The class is always on regardless of the weather (only exception is lightning!!) Pay special attention to what you wear (see question about what to wear/bring), and bring ‘layers’ when it is wet or cold. It is best to get too warm and have to take layers off, than not to have enough layers. In the sun or heat, keep well hydrated, wear a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and stay in the shade. Also, we keep moving and can exercise at a higher intensity in the cold; therefore, slowing the pace down when it is very warm….
What should I wear? Do I need to bring anything?
Rain, snow, ice or shine, and whatever the temperature, the outdoor classes will happen! Therefore bring layers of clothing with you to take off and put on as appropriate, as well as hat, scarf and gloves (winter). Use a waterproof/water resistant bag. If there is a chance we do get wet, arrange that you can put on some dry clothes as soon as possible after the session, and/or wear some waterproof clothing and clothing which sheds water, in the first instance. In shine……, consider a hat, sun screen and sun glasses! Bring water. Wear comfortable footwear like trainers, or walking shoes. For Nordic Walking use a small ruck sack style bag (for your layers of clothing, water ….) as you require your hands and arms to be free moving and we are walking around the park. If appropriate, bring a hair band. A tissue is also good to have to hand.
