HIIT BootCamp - Are You Up For It?

With our BootCamps, Buggyfit and Fit In The Park classes all getting off to an awesome start this week (thank you!), we're now focusing on our HIIT BootCamps

We get the impression that a few of you are nervous about signing up, so here's a few answers to some of the questions you've been asking us.

What exactly is HIIT?
High Intensity Interval Training. Basically doing short intense sets followed by short rests. And repeating. It's a proven form of training that delivers results fast!

How does the BootCamp work?

Training over 5 consecutive mornings, we'll focus on different muscle groups each day, combining strength, cardio and endurance for maximum burn. We'll get you to do a wide variety exercises (probably including a few burpees) to keep your mind and muscles guessing. 

The sessions start at 6.15am, so you can do it all before work, and before the rest of the family gets up. Just give us everything you've got for 45 minutes, everyday, for 5 days!

But I'm new to BootCamps / not very fit?

Don’t worry there’s a first time for everyone. We'll introduce you to some of our regulars (a few of them have been coming for years!), and our Instructors will always be on hand to make sure you know what you're doing.

We offer different levels to suit all abilities. Beginners, weekend warriors and serious fitness freaks will all be catered for. It'll be fast, furious and fun, all at the same time. 

What if I miss a session?

No problem. You can make up a class at one of our regular Fit In The Park or Buggyfit sessions.

What do I wear/bring?

Dress for the weather, with lots of layers. You may start off a bit chilly, but you'll soon warm up, so it's good to be able to take a things off as you get going.

Bring a mat if you have one, we have some spares if you don't. And remember to bring a water bottle, so that you can replenish what you sweat off!

Where and when is it?

Monday - Friday: 6.15 - 7.00am

How much does it cost?

Wimbledon Park: 
Class Pass Holders: £27 (plus 2 sessions off your class pass)
Non-Class Pass Holders: £45

South Park Gardens: 
Class Pass Holders: £36 (plus 1 session off your class pass)
Non-Class Pass Holders: £45

How do I book?

Happy Training,

Lovely feedback from one of our Wimbledon Buggyfit mums

We received this lovely message last week from one of our mums:

"I can’t say how important these Buggyfit sessions were when on mat leave with my two boys. They made me get up and out, get fit and feel motivated. Always followed by a coffee and a cathartic mum-moan, they became one of highlights of my week. The friends I met there are still friends and I have even kept up with the lovely trainers for personal training sessions. Book in or turn up, you won’t be disappointed 👍. They will be there rain or shine!"

If you're a new mum and would like to try out a class for free, meet us here every Monday and Thursday:

9.30am South Park Gardens
11.00am Wimbledon Park

All levels and abilities will be made very welcome!

Monday Nights At Holy Trinity?

So just what does happen on a MONDAY night at 8pm in the HOLY TRINITY SCHOOL hall?

Fit In The Park (In The Hall) is a fab mix of cardio, strength training and core work. We start with a warm up and then gradually build up the intensity of the session. You'll probably try out a few new exercises mixed up with some old favourites like squats, lunges and press-ups (yes you can have your knees down - most people do!).

Finally finishing with a cool down and stretches.

All our workouts are designed to get you into shape. To get your heart pumping. And to challenge all of your different muscle groups. No session is ever the same, so you won't get bored.

On top of all of that, we want to you have fun, feel motivated and make friends too.

We're inside a lovely hall, so there's no need to worry about extra layers. Just wear comfortable workout clothes, a good pair of trainers and bring a bottle of water.

There are no starting requirements. We warmly welcome all levels and abilities. Just let us know if you have any health issues or injuries that we’ll need to work around.

If you have difficulty with a particular exercise, we'll always have a modification for you. If it's all new to you, we'll be on hand to give you some extra help.

Still feel nervous about joining us? Why not come along for a free trial.. And why not drag a friend along too? What have you got to loose?

Meet us tonight (and every Monday night) at 8pm (address below). Use your HA fitness class pass, drop-in for £10, or join us for a FREE trial. No financial commitments or monthly payments. What have you got to loose?

Friday Mornings South Park Gardens - Last Class Next Week

Our last class 9.30am Fit In The Park Friday class will be on 26 October. Thank you to all of the grown ups and little ones who have joined us in the park each week. And a huge thank you to Sophie for designing and teaching some creative, fun and challenging sessions for us.

Monday Nights in South Park Gardens - Time and Location Change

As we've done over the past few years, we're moving into the Holy Trinity School Hall on Monday nights starting from 29th October. We'll be training there every Monday night until the Spring.

Unfortunately, due to hall availability, we will have to move this class to the later time of 8.00pm

We can really appreciate that some of you will be happy with the later time, whilst others will find it more challenging to join us. We're really sorry for any inconvenience.

We do promise a really fun session though, so do come and give it a go!
