What if I can't make every session?

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

But I don't want to go on my own?

You'll be introduced to all of our Boot Campers on the first day. We'll then work hard to ensure an inclusive, motivating spirit and strong sense of comradeship during the week. It'll be great fun too!

So when is it? 

  • Monday - Friday: 6.15 - 7.00am

Where and when is it?

Important Class Update

Tennis fortnight is about to begin!

We do love all of the Championship buzz, but it also means that one of our lovely training grounds, Wimbledon Park, turns into a campsite!

We're determined not to cancel any of our classes, so here's the plan for the next 2 weeks.

Buggyfit postnatal classes will take place in Durnsford Park (see below). We'll be there at our regular times of 11.00am on Mondays & 11.00am on Thursdays. If you've got older children, bring them along as there is a fantastic little playground!

Our Monday and Wednesday 6.15am sessions will meet just outside of the Revelstoke Road Wimbledon Park gate. We'll then be putting you through your paces either in or around the park. Please don't bring lots of stuff with you, as we maybe moving around a bit. It should be lots of fun though!

Fit In The Park Saturday 9.00am - we will confirm the location this week for you.

Durnsford Park is a lovely green area just off Durnsford Road (put SW19 8EY into your sat nav). You'll find street parking (pay-at-machine) on Wellington, Lucien, Gordondale, Havana & Mount Roads. It's a bit further away from where all the action is, so there are no Wimbledon Tennis parking restrictions.

Obviously we do recommend leaving your car at home & giving your workout an extra boost by walking, running or cycling to our classes. However, if you're driving around Wimbledon during the tennis fortnight, it can get very busy, so it's wise to plan in extra travel time. Parking can also be challenging as there are restrictions in place.

All of our South Park Gardens classes will be running as normal & everyone is welcome to come along. Check out our timetable for full details of all our classes. Be warned though, we've got some great workouts planned & we may even include a tennis theme here & there. We know this is a busy time, but we'd love to see as many of you as possible training with us over the coming weeks. If you need to renew your pass, or buy a pay-as-you-go session, head over to our purchase page.

Have you plans for the long weekend?

If not, here's a little help for planning your next 3 days...

Saturday in Wimbledon will be a "mostly dry day with sunny spells developing, and just the odd light shower possible" (Met Office).

So join us tomorrow for Fit In The Park in the sunshine!

Sunday's outlook is "bright and breezy, but with a chance of rain later." So head out for a walk/jog/run in the morning and maybe plan a healthy casserole for the evening (best leave the BBQ in the shed).

It's then going to be "rather cloudy on Monday with some rain, clearing later with winds easing."

We're not running any classes on Monday, so maybe enjoy an easy morning and a bike ride for the afternoon (pack your waterproofs just in case).

We're then back up and running again for a "mostly dry Tuesday with sunny spells".

Check out our full Fit In The Park and Buggyfit timetable here, and then buy your class passes online here.
 
P.S. This weather report was from the Met Office website...so don't blame me if it rains all weekend!
