It’s time for that age-old debate; is the process of altering the clocks still relevant to our current lifestyle?
It goes without saying, sleep is valuable. Sacrificing even a few minutes is a big ask, let alone an hour… although I suppose when you think about it, it is 100% worth it.
We want to help you take advantage of the summer months with this mini-guide to a handful of London’s finest workout spots. Don’t worry, our trainers are ready to join you anywhere, anytime.
Did you know?
The average person spends 92% of their time inside!
Not only does a workout in the park benefit your fitness, it can increase your well-being and is a great way to unwind after a long day. If you already have a hectic schedule, why not train during your lunch hour? It is proven that a workout will increase concentration levels, motivate your mind and help order your thoughts.
Greenwich park is the perfect location to stretch your legs, with over 74 acres of land to play with, a great chance to get creative and explore all the charming routes have to offer.
It is no surprise the park is a hotspot for runners, with a range of flat and hilly surfaces to keep you on your toes, with the added reward of breathtaking City views ready to inspire and remind you of the greatness within.
If running isn’t your cup of tea, don’t sweat, Greenwich park has a lot to offer, from great spaces to workout to idyllically located benches to enjoy a well-deserved rest.
Did we mention the Prime Meridian is located here? It’s where East meets West at Longitude 0 degrees, a reference line for astronomical observations. Hypothetically, this park is both the beginning and end of the world!
Greenwich has long open hours, 6 AM – 9:30 PM in the summer months, so no need to rush to get there after work.
Hyde Park is the largest Royal Park in London and a workout haven.
Full of trails and gardens, this park is perfect for you to create your own running and training paths in the picturesque fields and woodlands.
Hyde is famous for being divided by the Serpentine, a 40 acre recreational lake. The Serpentine is an impeccable spot for 2 mile running loops and a peaceful way to unwind alongside your personal trainer in the evenings.
Feel like taking a dip after your run? A rectangular swimming area is located in the southern area of the park, open in the summer months!
Have your trainer meet you in the ‘gardener’s paradise’ known as Regent Park.
This park is one large inner circle, a total of 410 acres in size and a one-of-a-kind place to run or train. If you’re up for a challenge, there are plenty of steep inclines and long running routes.
In the mood to try something new?
Nearly 100 acres of the park are set aside for a variety of sports such as football, cricket, and frisbee!
Regent’s Park is the home to a wide variety of roses and thousands upon thousands of rose bushes.
With British Summer Time just a stone throw away, we hope these parks inspire you to step out of winter feeling motivated and ready to enjoy the outdoors. Book a fitness session with one of our personal trainers to accelerate your fitness regime.
