HIIT BootCamp - Are You Up For It?

With our BootCamps, Buggyfit and Fit In The Park classes all getting off to an awesome start this week (thank you!), we're now focusing on our HIIT BootCamps

We get the impression that a few of you are nervous about signing up, so here's a few answers to some of the questions you've been asking us.

What exactly is HIIT?
High Intensity Interval Training. Basically doing short intense sets followed by short rests. And repeating. It's a proven form of training that delivers results fast!

How does the BootCamp work?

Training over 5 consecutive mornings, we'll focus on different muscle groups each day, combining strength, cardio and endurance for maximum burn. We'll get you to do a wide variety exercises (probably including a few burpees) to keep your mind and muscles guessing. 

The sessions start at 6.15am, so you can do it all before work, and before the rest of the family gets up. Just give us everything you've got for 45 minutes, everyday, for 5 days!

But I'm new to BootCamps / not very fit?

Don’t worry there’s a first time for everyone. We'll introduce you to some of our regulars (a few of them have been coming for years!), and our Instructors will always be on hand to make sure you know what you're doing.

We offer different levels to suit all abilities. Beginners, weekend warriors and serious fitness freaks will all be catered for. It'll be fast, furious and fun, all at the same time. 

What if I miss a session?

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

What do I wear/bring?

Dress for the weather, with lots of layers. You may start off a bit chilly, but you'll soon warm up, so it's good to be able to take a things off as you get going.

Bring a mat if you have one, we have some spares if you don't. And remember to bring a water bottle, so that you can replenish what you sweat off!

Where and when is it?

Monday - Friday: 6.15 - 7.00am

How much does it cost?

Wimbledon Park: 
Class Pass Holders: £27 (plus 2 sessions off your class pass)
Non-Class Pass Holders: £45

South Park Gardens: 
Class Pass Holders: £36 (plus 1 session off your class pass)
Non-Class Pass Holders: £45

How do I book?

Head over to our BootCamp page to book your place. Or drop us a line for more info.

Happy Training,

Monday Nights At Holy Trinity?

So just what does happen on a MONDAY night at 8pm in the HOLY TRINITY SCHOOL hall?

Fit In The Park (In The Hall) is a fab mix of cardio, strength training and core work. We start with a warm up and then gradually build up the intensity of the session. You'll probably try out a few new exercises mixed up with some old favourites like squats, lunges and press-ups (yes you can have your knees down - most people do!).

Finally finishing with a cool down and stretches.

All our workouts are designed to get you into shape. To get your heart pumping. And to challenge all of your different muscle groups. No session is ever the same, so you won't get bored.

On top of all of that, we want to you have fun, feel motivated and make friends too.

We're inside a lovely hall, so there's no need to worry about extra layers. Just wear comfortable workout clothes, a good pair of trainers and bring a bottle of water.

There are no starting requirements. We warmly welcome all levels and abilities. Just let us know if you have any health issues or injuries that we’ll need to work around.

If you have difficulty with a particular exercise, we'll always have a modification for you. If it's all new to you, we'll be on hand to give you some extra help.

Still feel nervous about joining us? Why not come along for a free trial.. And why not drag a friend along too? What have you got to loose?

Meet us tonight (and every Monday night) at 8pm (address below). Use your HA fitness class pass, drop-in for £10, or join us for a FREE trial. No financial commitments or monthly payments. What have you got to loose?

Holy Trinity Primary School
Effra Road
SW19 8PW

A Good Read For All Our New Mums At Wimbledon Buggyfit

I've just read this great blog article about returning to exercise after a cesarean. It's a good read for all our c section mums, but is also useful for any of our Buggyfit mum's getting back into exercise: Returning To Exercise After A C-Section.

Pregnancy and birth, especially a c-section, and all that twisting and carrying with a baby once it's been born, all take a huge toll on your body and it's important to get back into exercise in a safe and measured way with experts to guide you (even if you think you feel 100% and are desperate to lose your baby weight!!) You are postnatal for a full year after giving birth - this takes into account how long it takes the body to return to a 'normal' state.

With 11 years experience in Wimbledon, we run our Buggyfit classes using 'safe' exercises for our new mum's and offer some advanced/challenging variations for our more experienced Buggyfitters who have exercised with us over a number of months and are ready to pick up the pace a little to see ongoing progress.

We spend a long time planning our sessions so that we can help our post natal ladies rebalance their posture and regain their core strength, lose weight and get fitter - all wile having fun!!

We are experienced in helping ladies with specific post natal issues - diastasis recti, sore joints thanks to relaxin, weak pelvic floor, sleep deprivation to name a few.

We also have some great women's physiotherapists we recommend to any of our ladies who we think may need a little more intensive care to get back to normal and we make sure we help incorporate any physio into our Buggyfit sessions where appropriate.

Please always feel free to ask any of us questions about your post natal body and exercise, we love to help!

We run 5 Buggyfit classes a week across SW19 and SW18 including Wimbledon Common, Wimbledon Park and South Park Gardens. Check out our timetable for all the details. We have a very flexible class pass system. No contract, no sign-up fee and no commitment. You can drop-in or buy one of our class passes to save a bit of money. Head over to our payment page for all the details.

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.
