Why Choose Outdoor Fitness Classes?
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.
Here are some more top reasons to join Johanna Green and her team for an outdoor fitness class.
- Vitamin D & Fresh Air – there’s no sunshine in the gym

What Our Outdoor Fitness Classes Clients Are Saying
Janet, Muswell Hill
I lost 2 stone in 4 months!
I started training sessions with Johanna as part of a drive to lose weight and get fit. We set out some clear goals and I committed to a programme of exercise and healthy eating.
In 4 months I lost 2 stone and 5 inches off my waist and most importantly I felt a really marked improvement in my fitness and general health. I still train every week with Johanna in Alexandra Palace in sunshine or snow and I absolutely love it.
I feel great and credit Johanna with providing the unswerving professional support and motivation for getting me where I am now!
There’s always a really friendly atmosphere
For many years I’ve run on pavements and in parks for basic aerobic fitness, but Jo’s boot camps give me a satisfying whole body workout. Ally Pally Park is a great base, as the boot camps move between a number of different locations in the park, mostly with spectacular views over London. Jo offers a range of sessions each week, and is also careful to vary her programmes weekly so there is no chance of becoming bored!
There’s always a really friendly atmosphere; under Jo’s watchful eye, you work as hard as you wish, rather than competing with anyone else. The purely social side is not neglected either, with an occasional post-work-out coffee in one of the park cafés, and an excellent Christmas party!
Best of all, I don’t have to step inside a gym!
I have been doing two Bootcamp classes a week with Jo now for four years, during which time I have lost 2 stone in weight and become much physically fitter and stronger. I also had quite major knee surgery in that time, due to an historic skiing injury, and because of my excellent leg strength, was back at Bootcamp within a month, following Jo’s special rehabilitation programme!
Come rain, shine or snow, Johanna’s sessions are now firmly a part of my weekly routine, and best of all, I don’t have to step inside a gym!
Nicky, Nordic Walking
I've got a renewed vigor!
I've just come back from walking the Tour Mont Blanc, 180km in 11 days! When I agreed to do it I panicked!
I got in touch with Johanna and it was the best preparation I could have done for the walk in the Alps.
Although Alexandra Palace isn't the Alps, I was able to push myself and it paid off.
My legs were stronger and able to cope with the inclines and declines and I was able to use the walking poles with ease.
I've come back stronger and fitter and with a renewed vigor. Thank you Jo.
Jackie, Muswell Hill
Improved confidence and fitness
I've been doing Johanna Green's Alternative Bootcamp Classes for over three years and now have been doing Nordic Walking for over two years, I've lost 2 stone in weight.
I have improved confidence and feel so much fitter.
I had pain in my hps but thanks to Sonny, sports massage therapist, this has now resolved.
I really enjoy it and recommend it.
Karen, North London
Nordic Walking ... It's become addictive
I was struggling to find a class I could do with my achillies, knee and lower back issues. I was given a 7 day class taster pass and so decided to try Johanna's Nordic Walking Classes.
I hadn't a clue what Nordic Walking was but I turned up at Ally Pally got the Poles and did it!
It's become addictive!
The poles support you so theres no stress on your joints. You can go faster and further.
Charlotte & Rob
I have a desk job, wasn't doing much exercise and found that I was feeling sluggish plus I was unhappy with my shape.
I have found that working with Johanna I really enjoy the programme she has developed which has really improved my energy levels and I feel fitter and happier in myself.
I've also got Rob, my partner to join me so we can exercise together, which we love.

Rob & Charlotte
It's the one day of the week that I feel best about myself.
I've been coming for about 18 months with Charlotte. We really enjoy the variety of the exercise, being able to workout together is great too.
It's the one day of the week that I feel best about myself.
I had a bad back, really stiff, and with Johanna's help we've sorted that out.
