The Concept: If youre a little wary of hiring a personal trainer for fear of being barked at by a man mountain in a muscle vest to GET DOWN AND GIVE ME 20 every time you stop for water, the Amazons is for you. Trainer Ana, a friendly, experienced and fully qualified instructor with years of experience, will come to your local park armed with a boot full of equipment to put you through your paces in the nicest possible way. You can either do this solo, or with a group of friends for moral support (you will be pummelling car tyres with giant hammers and waving about a giant rope amongst other things and its a little less embarrassing to do that in public with a gang). The session starts with a run around the park to warm up, and is then split into boxing sessions, and circuits its so much fun that you dont realise youre exercising. You certainly do the next day though.
What You Need: A sense of humour and no shame people will point and laugh at you wielding your hammer.
Difficulty Rating: You can go as easy or as hard as you like Ana takes into account your level of fitness and tailors the hour to suit.
Location: Wherever in London you are although she runs regular group bootcamps in Richmond and South West London.
Cost: £50 per session for 1 hour personal training, £12 for the Bootcamp sessions.
