Each Elite outdoor session involves working in small training groups across a variety of equipment and zones. Some zones are focused more on cardio - raising your heart rate and burning fat, others are focused more on building strength and conditioning. Most of the zones are functional fitness - doing movements that mimic everyday actions, incorporating multiple muscles groups at the same time. Our coaches plan different workouts that involves various pieces of equipment and different activities.
Our goal is always to get you feeling fitter, healthier and stronger whilst making sure the workouts are fun and interesting.
The more you enjoy something, the more motivated you will be to do it or more and reach your goals.
Is outdoor training better than going to the gym?
This depends on what you prefer. Do you like to be outdoors or indoors? Do you like to lift very heavy weights or do you prefer fun equipment or bodyweight workouts?
At the end of the day the best exercise is the one you do regularly so do whatever you enjoy most. At Elite we love being outdoors amongst the trees and getting the extra boost to our mental wellbeing. And as our field is private and secluded, you can enjoy working out without onlookers taking an interest.
Being outdoors, we're also in a much better position to observe social distancing guidelines and help to minimise the spread of virus' like Covid-19.
How many calories do you burn in an hour of bootcamp?
This depends on the intensity of the class and can range from 400-800 calories. But the benefits of training outdoors go way beyond just burning calories. Getting fitter, stronger and improving both your mood and mental health are amazing side effects of training outdoor fitness.
What do I need to wear?
You will be outside in all weathers so it’s a good idea to layer up. That way you can add or remove clothes as you need to. Trainers with a good grip and a decent pair of gloves (ideally waterproof) are advised. A thin breathable waterproof jacket comes in handy too. Other than that, just wear whatever you are comfortable in, depending on the time of year.
What happens if the weather is bad?
The idea of outdoor fitness is to train, whatever the weather. Your workouts will feel different (in a good way) in different types of weather. We know that in very bad weather, most outdoor fitness classes are cancelled but not us - we've got another option :)
If the weather is severe and the training space becomes very slippery, we have an indoor training space next to the outdoor academy that can be used for classes. This is a fully matted space (we use it daily to teach self defence classes) so it's a great option so we never need to cancel a class.
Where can I park my car?
We have private car park right next to the academy that holds up to 30 cars.
Do you have bathroom or changing facilities?
We encourage you to come ready for your class, but if you need to be somewhere straight after you've finished, we have on-site bathrooms, changing rooms and showers that you can use.
What happens if I can't make a training session?
When you become a member of the academy, you get access to our club app where you'll be able to book and reschedule classes as you need to.
When are the training sessions?

How much are your training programmes?
This is a common question, but actually quite hard to answer. It really depends on you, and what you'd like to achieve and the time you want to invest. We'd need too know a little bit more about you, and make sure the academy is right for you. That's why we invite you to take a 7-day free trial, so you can take part in a class, and talk to us about how we might be able to help.
