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.

Sophie now has family commitments on a Friday, and we have decided that, rather than put in a new Trainer, we will focus on other new exciting ventures.

More to come on that! In the meantime, why not head over to our timetable to find out what else you could be doing with 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!

Beginners BootCamp - Wimbledon Park & South Park Gardens

Join Heather for an early morning Bootcamp for Non-BootCampers!

This one-off session could be just the thing for you, if you’ve…

  • Not exercised since school and feel a bit intimidated about starting

  • Been injured and need to kick start your fitness again

  • Put on a little weight and keep putting off doing something about it

  • Had children and your body no longer feels like it’s yours (and we’re not just talking about the Mums here!)

The idea is to give you a gentle(ish) introduction to our Fit In The Park sessions. You will be with like minded beginners and a sympathetic, lovely Instructor (me!).

I’ll bring all the kit. You just need some workout clothes, a pair of trainers and some water to drink. You definitely don’t need to wear fancy gym gear (I won’t be!).

Men and women of all shapes and sizes will be warmly welcomed and encouraged to workout at their own individual level.

It’s only £5 for this one-off 45 minute session. Why not sign-up now before you change your mind. What have you got to lose? You can do this!

When & Where:

6.15am - 7.00am (yes I know it’s early, but it does get it out of the way!)

South Park Gardens: Friday 12 October
Wimbledon Park: Friday 19 October

Cost:
Just £5

Book your place now or drop us a line for more info. Please note that these sessions are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Our Top 5 Tips To Beat The Christmas Bulge!

Over the next few weeks, journalists will thoughtfully inform us about the amount of weight the average person should expect to put on in December.

Don't be one of those statistics! Scroll down for our top 5 tips on beating the Christmas bulge, sign-up for our Mince Pie Burn-Offs and get your name down on our January HIIT BootCamp!

1) Make Those Treats Worthwhile

You actually don’t have to drink a gingerbread latte topped with freshly whipped cream, gold stars and a gingerbread man, every time you pass a coffee shop.

But if you do fancy one of those festive coffees, then go for it. Pick a time when you can sit down and really enjoy every last one of those syrupy, creamy mouthfuls. It's a complete waste of indulgence if you just grab one and go though. Have it once for an indulgent treat, and make sure you allow time to truly appreciate it.

2) Pass-On The Indulgent Love (tactfully)

People always feel obliged to bring chocolates and treats whenever they visit friends and family at this time of year. However, when these treats land on your kitchen table, don't feel obliged to consume all of them. Discreetly re-gift, or feel virtuous by donating them to a food bank or soup kitchen. Basically, your goal is to remove them from your house before you get chance to rip open the cellophane wrapper.

3) Don't Give Up

Parties, broken routines, travel and stress means that most of us are less active and eat more during December. It's OK to accept that this might happen. But try to avoid going down the “I’ve blown my diet, I may as well keep going” route. Make some healthy choices, fit in some exercise and you'll feel much better for it.

4) The Shops Are Only Closed For One Day!

Avoid stockpiling crisps, nuts and snacks for that just-in-case-someone-pops-around moment. Especially if there's a good chance you might polish them off yourself because "it’ll be a shame to waste them". Buy the things you’ll need and remember that visitors rarely come empty-handed (see Top Tip Number 2).

5) Don’t Passively Load Up On Extra Calories

Here are a few simple festive swaps you can make:

- Buy or make open top mince tarts as these can have around 50 calories less than mince pies with lids on.
- Choose satsumas to graze on rather than nuts. If you can't resist the nuts, buy ones with shells on, you'll eat a lot less of them.
- Avoid drinking creamy cocktails, Baileys and sweetened mulled wine. Stick to the fizz or wine.

Good luck and don’t forget to sign-up to our Mince Pie Burn-Offs and January HIIT BootCamp!
