You maybe nervous coming along to your first Outdoor group exercise class with PB Fitness, but there is no need to be. Everyone is really fun and friendly, making it the perfect place to meet new friends.
On arrival I will meet you on the corner of Crossfield and Ward Avenue, with old and new members around who will start chatting to you and explaining what you can expect in the session. Normally within a couple of minutes of arriving most new members are wondering what they had to be nervous about. I will then take your keys and any other valuables that you would like me to look after.
The sessions will take place across the whole of Northwood Park for 45 minutes. Another thing people worry about is their fitness levels. Please don't worry that you will only be able to get half way through the session. Everyone is working to their full potential no matter how fit or unfit you are. Lots of people are worried that they are not fit enough and say that they are going to get fit somewhere else and come back, but the whole point of it is that PB Fitness will get you fit.
People are also worried about what to wear. All we wear is old tracksuit bottoms or leggings, florescent jacket for the winter, a beanie hat and gloves for the winter too, as we will still be doing press ups on the ground. Anything that you would wear doing the gardening or don't mind getting a little dirty.
The Big Outdoors Group Exercise Class was set up to train in a different environment, away from the gym in the great outdoors, which leads to mental, physical and welfare benefits. One very important thing to remember is that it is not a boot camp. You are not given a bib and called a number, I will get to know your name and you are never shouted out. We exercise in a fun and friendly environment with a mix of resistance exercise, cardiovascular exercise, as well as individual and team games.
I am really looking forward to seeing you at a session soon, the members are really looking forward to meeting you too. All you have to do is take a deep breathe, print out the voucher off the website (www.pbfitness.org.uk) to get your first session for half price. Then come and do something totally out of the blue, that you have never done before, totally different from a gym class, because I can guarantee you are going to have a fantastic time and we are looking forward to seeing you in the park soon.
