Frequently Asked Questions…

Outdoor Fitness

Do I need to be fit? The workout will be hard but no, this is suitable for all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. The trainer will continually assess your progress and push you according to your current fitness level.

What happens if there is bad weather? There’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing. We go ahead whatever the weather, just be prepared.

Do the classes run through Winter? The classes run all year round so it is best to come prepared – layers of clothing, gloves, leg warmers and a waterproof jacket all make things a little more comfortable.

What if it’s dark in the early morning or evening? The classes will continue but locations with more light may be chosen. Your instructor will carry a torch and/or lanterns, and your safety is our primary concern.

What do I need to bring with me? A water bottle and a mat or towel. The trainer will bring a bag with them to keep keys and phones etc. but accepts no responsibility for any losses or breakages. Try to bring as few belongings with you as possible.

What do I need to wear? Sensible training shoes, some comfy clothing and layers for colder weather. We also advise that you have a lightweight rainproof coat.

How big are the classes? The outdoor fitness classes average about 4-8 participants, we intentionally keep the class numbers low to ensure they are not intimidating to new members. Also expect seasonal variations in numbers which tend to drop during the height of both summer and winter.

Fitness Yoga

How does FFY differ from traditional yoga? It mimics yoga in its breathing and style, offering postures that endorse strength and stability, but it is not a spiritual experience. There is no dogma, chanting or philosophy attached to this workout. Postures are prescribed from the body’s natural anatomical perspective using the language of fitness. Yoga names and references are not used. Extreme postures that exceed optimal ranges of motion are generally avoided.

Will you work out in FFY? Yes. The postures are tweaked and manipulated to hit the body’s major muscle groups effectively, creating a life-long workout by holding longer and going deeper. FFY never fails to hit the spot!

Will you relax in FFY? The peaceful environment of this class allows everyone to work in their own zone which is inevitably relaxing. FFY roots you to your spot allowing you to practice at your own pace to suit your energy levels.

Am I a yoga teacher? No. I am a Freestyle Fitness Yoga teacher and a fitness instructor. It takes at least 200 hours of training to become a yoga teacher and many good teachers have spent years studying and practicing the art of yoga. FFY takes inspiration from yoga but is taught from a fitness perspective, always remaining respectful to traditional yoga.

What do I need to bring with me? A water bottle and a mat.
