New Saturday Blast Class

We've had quite a number of you ask us to put on an earlier Saturday class. So starting on 10th January, we'll be running a 7.45 to 8.30am Blast Class in South Park Gardens. This is a full body workout in just 45 minutes! We'll meet in the middle of the park near the drinking fountain (the Trinity Road gate will be open).

So if your Saturday mornings mean you can't always get to our 9am sessions, we're getting up a little bit earlier to make sure you don't miss out on your HA fitness workout!

Your class passes & pay-as-you-go are all valid & newcomers will be made very welcome.

Come & give it a go this Saturday!

Thursday Morning Buggyfit is Evolving

We've heard that some of our Wimbledon Park Buggyfit mums find the Thursday 12 noon finish time a bit tricky. We've also had feedback that a few non-postnatal ladies are interested in joining the class too.

So, from Thursday 27th November, this class will be a Blast Class, suitable for postnatal mums & anyone else who'd like to come along. Babies & children more than welcome to come & play, gurgle, eat & sleep (we don't mind a bit of noise either).

The class will start at 11.00am, meeting in front of the cafe in Wimbledon Park.  You'll have the option to leave either at 11.45am or 12noon, depending on you & your little ones schedule.

The New Club...

Many of you have been saying that you'd like to come to our early Wimbledon Park sessions, but when the alarm goes off, it's all too easy to roll over & hide under the duvet. 

So we've set-up the Don't Hit Snooze, Grab Your Shoes Club!

It's all about motivating each other to get out of bed & into the Park. You can find out who is going to which classes & tell everyone which ones you'll be committing to.

It's very informal. To join, all you have to do is email me saying that you'd like to share your email address with other people who come to the 6.15am Wimbledon Park sessions. You'll then be able to join in the chat & get motivated!

We're rolling it out in Wimbledon Park. But if you think this would work for you in South Park Gardens, drop me a line & I'll set it up.

Monday Nights - We've Got It Covered!

We asked whether you wanted to go inside for your Monday night sessions. You said, yes if it's raining. No if its not.

Well we've organised it for you! Starting tonight, we will be in Holy Trinity School Hall if it's raining (most likely this evening!). And in the playground if it's not. In order for this to happen, we'll be starting at the slightly later time of 7.30pm.

Situated on Effra Road, the school is just 2 minutes walk from South Park Gardens. Come into the school via the French windows at the front. One of us will be waiting outside to point you in the right direction.

There's free parking on Effra Road in the evening.

See you there!

Where: South Park Gardens (Trinity Rd entrance)

HIIT in South Park Gardens, 7.45am this Saturday!

Come to our last HIIT session in South Park Gardens on Saturday at 7.45 - 8.30am.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is about getting your heart rate racing, your body sweating & your muscles burning. Fast-paced exercises will torch calories & boost your metabolism. Short, timed recovery periods will enable you to keep the intensity high whilst still maintaining form.

You can use your class passes at these sessions or do pay-as-you-go. If you'd like to do the double & come to the 9.00am session as well, we'll happily give you extra training for the 30 minutes in between the 2 sessions!

We meet near the Trinity Road entrance to the park. Wimbledon, SW London SW19 8QY.

We will be running our free fitness testing the following Saturday, 15 November so make sure you fit in as many sessions as you can before then!

- More BootCamps: Our 2 week HIIT BootCamp starts on Sat at 8am in South Park Gardens (book now as places are limited).

- Class start times not to be delayed by latecomers: We're starting & finishing all of our classes on time now, so get the most out of your session & be there with us on time too. If you're running late, don't worry, we won't turn you away - although there maybe a few penalty burpees!

Heather's Fit Kit Drills - New September Dates

We've got some new dates available for our very popular Fit Kit Drills sessions with Heather.

These intense workouts combine TRX Suspension Training with the ViPR.

You'll use the TRX (long straps that hang from a tree or post) to add an extra challenge to your regular bodyweight exercises. Develop your strength, power & core stability whilst having a bit of suspended fun!

Take on the ViPR (not so humble weighted rubber tubes) & you'll be performing big dynamic movements that build core strength, sculpt the arms, legs & bum whilst burning a huge amount of calories.

Heather's sessions use both pieces of kit to create a unique all over body challenge. Limited to a small group, you’ll receive highly personalized attention & get maximum results for your time & effort.

Give us your drive & determination. We’ll give you sweat & smiles!

Where & When:

Tue 16 Sep - 6.15am to 7.00am - Wimbledon Park
Tue 23 Sep - 6.15am to 7.00am - South Park Gardens
Thu 2 Oct - 6.15am to 7.00am - Wimbledon Park (note this is Thu not Tue)

Cost: £8.50 per class

As numbers are difficult for us to predict, we're asking everyone to pre-book each session in advance. Sorry, we won't be able to take payments on the day & class passes won't be valid. These sessions are non-transferable & non-refundable.

Book now or get in touch to find out more.

Early Morning Sessions Are Changing Slightly

We've had a lot of requests for our early sessions to finish at 7am.  We suggested a 45 minute intense session, but have heard some of our hardcore clients would like the full hour. As no-one is keen to start at 6am, we’ve come up with a good solution.

We’ll start on the dot at 6.15am, with a warm-up & intense express session that will finish at 7.00am. Following this, there will be a 15 minute challenging strength & core session.  This gives you the option of a 45 minute or 60 minute class.

This new format applies to all of our 6.15am sessions in Wimbledon Park & South Park Gardens, & will start next week.

We’ve got some challenging new workouts planned to wake you up & have you glowing all day!

We Are Happy!

We were really excited to be asked to take part in the We Are Happy film at our Fit In The Park class on Saturday in Wimbledon Park.

 

It's a 4 minute film about different people & businesses in our community & the music is set to the We Are Happy song . The film should go live in about 4 weeks time, so watch this space...!
