Why Group Outdoor Fitness?


The sunlight stimulates our bodies to make VITAMIN D, essential for bone growth and organ health. High levels can alleviate depression and decrease insomnia.

In winter, daylight hours are limited. An hour outside can stimulate the mind, raise the mood and help us feel alert.

Being outdoors will increase our capacity to absorb and utilise oxygen so it reaches our cells and body tissues more quickly.

The forestry commission 2012 guide on green space design emphasized the benefits of green space exercise with particular emphasis on mental health improvements. Combining outdoor exercise , natural light and sense stimulation has a ‘salutogenic’ effect: reducing stress and encouraging healthy and coping behaviours. Green space exercise is perceived as easier.

The group environment will bring you support, encouragement and the motivation with personal achievement to follow.

You can find details of times of all outdoor sessions and studio conditioning classes on the Sessions page, with descriptions for personal training, biomechanics, the bespoke conditioning clinic, and sports remedial massage therapy on the classes page.
