London’s best military style w

There is something special summertime in London: the mornings are lighter, the rarely-seen sun emerges and the nights are longer.  You no longer need to hide underneath a big coat or chunky scarf and a stern face. Your natural instinct kicks in to get moving, to make use of the great outdoors and embrace the change of season.

One things London does well is the outdoor fitness industry.  It’s hands down epic. In a world where we spend the majority of our time in a box, it’s good to get some fresh air, and be outdoors in some of London’s best parks. Military style fitness and boot camps are a fast growing trend and it is easy to see why. They incorporate team work, obstacles, body resistance and fitness drills, and it’s a unique and interactive way to get fit.

Drop down and gimme 20!

And then have a look at our list of clubs to get involved in this summer:

British Military Fitness

It’s probably the most well-known club in London. They have adopted a ‘civilian friendly’ version of the physical exercise used to improve and maintain the fitness levels of the British Army, Navy and RAF. And these guys are some fittest individuals on the planet.

The Fitness Explorer

Darryl Edwards is becoming extremely famous in the industry with his style of workout called ‘Primal Play’ that uses basic primal movements to get fit. Activities are varied, functional, enjoyable and adaptive. He’s all about: play, experiment and explore.

Swift Fitness Group

These guys are a lot of fun! They mix up every workout so that no two workouts are ever the same. They mix it up between circuits, partner resistance work, interval running, skipping and toning exercises. 2015-05-08 13-52-58

Keep Fit Bootcamp

Each ‘Boot Camp’ class is different and progressive with the aim for everyone to work at their own ability but to be both challenged and motivated. The classes are not your typical health club set workout. They will get you out of your comfort soon and make you work. Yes, please! 2015-05-08 13-56-26

Barry’s Bootcamp

If staying indoors is more your thing but you still want that military style workout, then you have this legendary option. Dark room, loud music, instructors yelling instructions and one helluva workout, Barry’s is the place to be.
