The vouchers can be as flexible as you'd like to make them. They can be purchased for any value & can be used as full or part payment for personal training, classes, bootcamps or a mixture of all of our HA fitness services.

Bonus HIIT Sessions:

To boost the number of workouts you can fit into 1 week, we're adding 4 extra HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) sessions to the South Park Gardens timetable in October & November:

Saturday 18 October: 7.45 - 8.30am
Saturday 25 October: 7.45 - 8.30am
Saturday 1 November: 7.45 - 8.30am
Saturday 8 November: 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

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!

"If you want to become the best runner you can be, start now. Don’t spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it."  Priscilla Welch

Did you watch the London Marathon & think, hmm that could be me next year? Do you run but need some help with technique? Have you been running for years, but never seem to get any faster? Are you a beginner who needs a bit of motivation to run more?

Then get in touch. We know the perfect person to help.

Our Trainer, Claire, ran a personal best a couple of weeks ago at the London Marathon. She did it in 2hrs 45 mins & was 6th non-elite woman across the finish line!

Claire's not only a formidable runner, she's an amazing Personal Trainer & Running Coach. She'll first observe & evaluate your running & then work with you to improve your efficiency & speed. Not only will this help you to become a better runner, it'll also reduce your chances of getting injured.

Don't be intimidated by her swiftness, Claire is brilliant at helping all levels of runners from beginners through to advanced.

Tempted? Get in touch to find out about our personal training or small group sessions with Claire. Or, we've still got a few places left on our Saturday morning Running BootCamp: Drills, Hills & Skills.

Skip The Small Talk

Exercising with a group of like-minded people is proven to get better results than training on your own. Strength in numbers gives you a support network, friendly competition & more fun. You're also less likely to quit on a chilly day if you've got friends to meet & workout with.

Obviously you can enjoy these benefits at our Fit In The Park & Buggyfit classes (see below for the timetable), but if you're interested in something more tailored, why not try our Small Group Training sessions? Maybe you want to:

  • Conquer a 10K, marathon or triathlon
  • Build your core strength & improve your posture
  • Feel confident about your body after having a baby
  • Get ski-fit before you hit the slopes
  • Start exercising again (perhaps for first time in a long time)
  • Push yourself with HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)

Small Group Training will give you a fantastic return on your investment. It's more cost effective than one-to-one training & yet has all the benefits of a tailored workout. You get what you want, when you want it including:

  • A systematic program focused on your goals
  • Workouts specifically designed to get results in a small group setting
  • Training at a time & place that suits you
  • Email & phone support

Less Talk, More Action!

Maybe you've chatted to friends/colleagues/random acquaintances about training together, but have never got around to organising anything. Now's the time to start making it work.

Drop us a line
& let us know what you're interested in & your potential group size. We'll then put a plan together for you including costs & availability.

Need Some More Friends?

Skip the small talk & let us do a bit of match-making for you. Tell us when you want to train, where & what you'd like to do. We'll try our best to team you up with some like-minded people.

Don't think too hard about it, just get in touch with your initial thoughts & let us do the rest.

Book Now & Save!

Book & pay for one-to-one or small group training before 24th December 2013, & we'll give you 1 hour of training absolutely free! This is only available for clients who have not had personal training with us during 2013.

Find out more & make your booking. We've got limited slots available on this offer, so don't put it off.

Mats, Mats, Glorious Mats!

As a team, we spend hours cleaning & drying them. Our cars have a permanent damp mat smell. And although we don't mind too much, our loved ones aren't quite so impressed.

So, in an effort to improve family relations, we'll be asking you to bring your own mats to all of our Fit In The Park classes in Wimbledon Park & South Park Gardens from 7 October. We'll have spares if you forget, but please do try & remember.

You can buy them cheaply from Amazon, Argos & the big Sainsbury's, Tesco & Asda. Or ask one of our trainers if they have any old ones to sell on.

You really don't need anything flash, just something to throw down on the ground to protect you from the mud. Or you could always "go commando" & be mat free!

A Bank Holiday With Good Weather?

I don't want to speak too soon, but the forecast for tomorrow is looking pretty good for those of us in SW London. No rain predicted & there should be a little bit of sunshine to keep us all smiling.

As usual, all of our hard working instructors will be enjoying a well earned day off, so there will be no classes tomorrow (Bank Holiday Monday). However, we'll be back full of energy & raring to go on Tuesday 28th May!

Have a lovely Bank Holiday!
