Fit In The Park

Friends With Benefits!

Our Friends With Benefits campaign starts today!

This means that you can bring up to 3 friends along to any of our Buggyfit or Fit In The Park classes in December, for FREE!

You can bring 3 separate friends or the same friend 3 times. All we ask is that you have a valid HA fitness Class Pass (either 10 or 20) and that your friend has not come to any of our classes in 2018.

If they are an old client, who has come to classes in previous years, then bring them back into the fold, we'd love to see them again!

If they are brand new to HA fitness, then now is definitely the time to introduce them to the great stuff we do!

There's no need to register beforehand, just come along to the class with your friends. They will need to complete one of our Health Forms before the class starts (you can download one here)

They are welcome to join you for FREE at any of the following classes, up until our last class on 22 December 2018 (please note, this does not include any of our Mince Pie Burn Offs, BootCamps or PopUp sessions):


Mon - 9.30am, South Park Gardens
Mon - 11.00am, Wimbledon Park
Thu - 9.30am, South Park Gardens
Thu - 11.00am, Wimbledon Park

Mon - 6.15am, Wimbledon Park

Wed - 6.15am, Wimbledon Park
Thu - 6.15am, South Park Gardens
Sat - 7.45am, South Park Gardens
Sat - 9.00am, South Park Gardens

Have you got a friend that wants to exercise, but there's always an excuse?

Have you got a friend that wants to exercise, but there's always an excuse? Well, with a chance to join us for free, the benefits outweigh the excuses. And they can get fit before Christmas!

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!

Lurve In The Park


The couple that sweats together, stays together. Or something like that. Valentine's weekend is the perfect excuse to grab your partner & bring them along to a crushingly good outdoor workout. So hot up your Saturday morning & join us at our:

Heart Pumping Blast Session: South Park Gardens, 7.45am-8.30am
Tough Loving Fit In The Park: Wimbledon Park, 9.00am-10.00am
Sweaty & Fired-Up Fit In The Park: South Park Gardens, 9.00am-10.00am

Did you know that your HA fitness class pass can be used by your loved one too? You're welcome to share your pass with your partner/husband/wife. Our passes are really flexible and are valid for both our Buggyfit and Fit In The Park sessions. You can also check out our full timetable and purchase your passes easily online.

Lots of love,

Price Increase Coming Up - Get In Quick!

Get Fit

Just to let you know, our drop-in rate for Buggyfit & Fit In The Park is going up to £10 on Friday (it's currently at £9). Basically, having a round number will make things a lot quicker at the beginning of the classes, as we won't have to keep handing out £1 coins in change!

Our 20 class pass will also be going up from £125 to £130. We feel that at £6.50 a class, this is still excellent value for money.

The 10 class passes will stay at the same price of £75, so it's worth buying one if you're currently doing a lot of drop-ins.

Our class passes can be used at any of our Buggyfit or Fit In The Park classes in South Park Gardens, Wimbledon Park & on Wimbledon Common. Check out our timetable so see which classes will suit you best.

The class prices will go up at midday this Friday (after Buggyfit on Wimbledon Common).

If you'd like to save a bit of cash, you can purchase either a drop-in or class pass online before the prices go up. Any passes bought online at the current price, maybe redeemed throughout February. We're allowing one pass (at the current price) to be bought per person. So get online & save some money today!

Bank Holiday Opening Hours: Wimbledon Park & South Park Gardens

The HA team are all off doing exciting things over the August Bank Holiday weekend & we're guessing many of you are busy too. There will be no classes from Fri 26 Aug (tomorrow) to Mon 29 Aug inclusive.

However we've decided to put on a special one-off Tues evening class on 30 August in South Park Gardens. It'll be 7.30-8.30pm & everyone is welcome, including our Buggyfit mums & Wimbledon Park gang. Just bring your class passes or do pay-as-you-go (£9).

All of our other Fit In The Park & Buggyfit sessions will be going ahead as normal from Wednesday. Check out our timetable for the details.

Make It Happen!

It's summer holiday time! If you're not going away over the next couple of weeks, make sure you join us in the park. We've got a full timetable for you, with only a couple of changes to our Wimbledon Park early sessions (see below).

All mums are welcome to our Buggyfit classes over the summer, including those with older children. Your little or big ones are welcome to play/sleep/eat/read nearby whilst you train (as always, your children remain your responsibility). Head over to our timetable for all the details.

If our daytime sessions don't work for you, why not join us at 6.15am? You can choose to finish at either 7.00am or 7.15am. When it's warm, there's no better time to exercise than in the cool early in the morning. Before work. Before the rest of the family are up. Before you've managed to think up all those excuses not to do it!

Here's the plan for Wimbledon Park early classes over the next couple of weeks. We hope to see lots of you there tomorrow morning! Come into the park via the Revelstoke Road entrance & you'll see us.

Wimbledon Park Early Classes Next Week...
Mon 1 Aug: 6.15am - 7.00/7.15am
Wed 3 Aug: 6.15am - 7.00/7.15am

All of our other Fit In The Park & Buggyfit sessions will be going ahead as normal over the next few weeks. You can buy your pass online & then pick it up at your next class.
Don't forget to apply suncream & squirt some bug spray on (especially for our early morning & evening sessions).
Happy Training,

Durnsford Park, Not Wimbledon Park This Week

With the Tennis Championships heading our way, SW19 will soon become the sporting focus of the world again.

During this busy fortnight (27 June to 10 July), all of our classes will continue to run, however this year we'll be temporarily moving out of Wimbledon Park (it's the Council's new policy unfortunately).

So this here's the plan:

Buggyfit postnatal classes will take place in Durnsford Park (see below). We'll be there at our regular times of 9.30am on Wednesdays & 11.00am on Thursdays (29, 30 June & 6,7 July). If you've got older children, bring them along as there is a fantastic little playground!

Fit In The Park 6.15am sessions will meet just outside of the Revelstoke Road Wimbledon Park gates. We'll then be putting you through your paces with some running drills around the grid & surrounding areas. It should be fun & you don't have to be a runner to take part! See you there at 6.15am on Wednesday & Friday.

Fit In The Park Saturday 9.00am classes will also take place in Durnsford Park (see below). We'll be there on 2 & 9 July with some challenging new moves 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. Go to the Wandsworth & Merton council websites for details. 

All of our South Park Gardens classes will be running as normal. 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.

Happy Training,

The Bank Holiday Weekend

Saturday 29 August - Fit In The Park

Super-fit Claire will be taking both South Park Gardens & Wimbledon Park classes this Saturday. The classes will take place the following times (there are no sessions at 9.00am):

8.00am - 9.00am in South Park Gardens
9.30am - 10.30am in Wimbledon Park

Early riser? Head over to South Park Gardens. Meet in the middle of the park near the water fountain.

Prefer a lie in? Meet us in Wimbledon Park. We'll be training near the Revelstoke Road entrance car park.

Fancy a challenge? Join Claire in both parks & we'll only charge you for 1 class!

Children, partners, family & friends are all welcome to join us in both parks. As always, your class passes are valid at all of our locations.

Monday 31 August - Fit In The Park & Buggyfit

Unfortunately there will be no classes or Bootcamps on Bank Holiday Monday this weekend as the HA fitness team are spending some fun time with their families.

Our regular timetable resumes on Tuesday 1st September, kicking off with 6.15am Fit In The Park in South Park Gardens.

Posted by Heather Waghorn.

It's A Date?

The couple that sweats together stays together. Or something like that. Consider Valentine's Day the perfect excuse to grab your partner & take them to a class.
Hot up your Saturday morning:

7.45am: Heart pumping HIIT in South Park Gardens (45 mins).
9.00am: Running romance in Wimbledon Park (75 mins)
9.00am: Tough love at Fit In The Park, Wimbledon Park (60 mins)
9.00am: Blissful burnout at Fit In The Park, South Park Gardens (60 mins)

Check out our full timetable & Bootcamps for further details.
Go on, spread the love...

P.S. Nothing says "Happy Valentine's" like an HA fitness gift certificate. Drop me a line if you need a last minute present idea!

It's only cold if you stand still

Some of my best workout memories are of when we're out there, battling against the elements.
You feel invincible, invigorated & pumped with energy. Nothing quite beats it & you just want more.
Yesterday, at 6.15am, we charged across South Park Gardens, leaving crazy footprints in the fresh snow. Later on in the morning, our Buggyfit mums powerwalked across a sparkling white Wimbledon Common, with the little ones all tucked up in their buggies.
So although we'd prefer it to be dry & sunny, there's still loads of fun to be had outside during the winter months.
Wrap up in warm layers & wear gloves & a hat. Remove a layer when you start to sweat & put it back on again if you start to feel chilly.
If you wait for the perfect conditions, you'll never get anything done. Somedays you just have to make your own little bit of sunshine.
Check out our latest class timetable & I'll see you in the park soon!

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.

Posted by Heather Waghorn.

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!
