You know what warm weather means – outdoor workouts! We love getting our fit on in the open air, and whilst nothing quite beats a beachside yoga session on a balmy summers morning, we’ve put together a whole host of outdoor workouts you need to be factoring into your fitness schedule this season…
Rooftop Hula Hooping When it comes to keeping fit we like to mix things up, so when we heard of Rooftop Hula Hooping, we were more than intrigued. In residence at the rooftop pool at the Berkeley health club and spa, this fun and summer-sensible workout offers a great mix of high intensity and toning exercises to sculpt waist and hips. Following each class, hula-hoopers can enjoy a relaxing dip and a well-deserved poolside lunch overlooking panoramic views of Hyde Park and bustling Knightsbridge.
Paddle & Prosecco Planning a beach holiday this sunny season? Make Newquay your healthy holiday destination. The perfect summer combo – Paddle & Prosecco launches on the 9th of July on Newquay’s beautiful Great Western Beach. Easier to learn than surfing but just as exhilarating, paddlers will be equipped with all necessary equipment and guided through the still waters of Newquay’s idyllic bay and surrounding headland, taking in the sights of beautiful coastline and marine life along the way. The evening ends with a post-paddle glass of bubbles on the terrace overlooking the ocean – pure bliss!
Aqua Physical You may have seen this innovative new workout popping up around London this Summer, but if you haven’t – wer’re here to give you the scoop. An effective and challenging way to enhance your yoga practise, Aqua Physical is a low impact cross training workout performed on floating inflatable boards that use the natural fluidity of water to help you achieve flexibility, stability and strength. Plus, it’s as much a workout for your brain as it is for your body thanks to the concentration and focus required to stay balanced and afloat! Stay peeled for our Hip & Healthy review coming soon.
Hyde Park & Yeotown Retreats Park lovers rejoice – The Royal Parks foundation is partnering with Yeotown Health Retreat to bring health, happiness and wellbeing to the masses in the heart of Londons beautiful Hyde Park. Ongoing until November this year, the park will host a mix of workshops in yoga, healthy eating and mindfulness – a perfect way to enjoy the great outdoors and keep fit and healthy whilst at it.
