800m Times

Each week at Forest Fit we are putting everyone through their paces on a Monday evening at Swanage and Wareham Rugby Club. Great fun tough sessions!
The session ends with a timed 800m run, and we are keeping a record of everyone's times and they can see how they are progressing as they come along and train with us, trying to beat the time set in the previous week. Here are the times so far.

If any of Team Forest Fit notice times missing or names not on the list please let me know. Times for last week need updating, so once I have those in I will upload to the web! See you all at the next session!

So another Monday night is on its way. Really looking forward to putting the members of Team Forest Fit through their paces!
We have some new sandbags to replace the ones that split last week and have loads more exercises planned and a great variety of fun and tough challenges that Charlie and I will introduce over the coming weeks.
We hope the Monday nights will complement well what we are doing at the Sika Trail on Wednesdays and Saturdays and I am sure that Team Forest Fit will continue to get fitter and stronger!

Monday night a hit!

Thank you to all our Forest Fitters who turned up to train with us on our first night at Swanage and Wareham rugby club. Took me back a bit, training under floodlights. It was a really great session, 21 attendees with some new faces, welcome to you all.
Mr Gary Dighton was there. Gary is a former national time trial cycling champion and rides regularly for Poole Wheelers. He wants to add some variety to his winter training and it was great to have him along. We will be incorporating al sorts of different exercises, training ideas and keeping it moving along to support what we do at the Sika Trail, Wareham Forest.
Big thanks to the rugby club for allowing us to host it there. It's a great facility and I urge anyone who hasn't been to go down there and support their local rugby club. I know if my boys are interested in rugby when they are older, I'll be more than happy to take them along.

12 months of Forest Fit

Our anniversary! Me and Charlie have been delivering training sessions from Wareham Forest for12 months now and we are loving the sessions and everyone who is coming along to train with us. Great bunch of guys and gals and it is amazing to see all of you getting leaner, meaner, faster, stronger, healthier and fitter!
The sessions are always great fun, and challenging. We are still concentrating on making sure everyone is keeping good form with each exercise, pushing themselves when they need to, and generally looking after everyone who trains with us.
Spread the Forest Fit word as we continue to develop what we do. Forest Fitters are making it a great place to be to exercise and get exactly what you need from a workout!
For those new to exercise we welcome you to come along and give it a try, you will surprise yourself and have a lot of fun. Over 160 people have come along over the last 12 months and the majority of those continue to train with us on a regular basis.

Latest News

Monday nights have really taken off and it's an excellent way to start the working week, or to finish off a long hard Monday in the office!
The 4 sessions are working really well and it's great to see so many regular faces who have been with us over the last few months getting lots fitter, stronger, leaner and meaner! And also we continue to see plenty of new faces as well which is great news as Forest Fit gathers momentum and is proving to be a popular way to train.
Outdoor training is proven to significantly improve weight loss and increase aerobic fitness quicker than working solely in the gym. Forest Fit offers some great strength training as well as a host of aerobic activities like the infamous hill running challenges that we do on a regular basis.
We hope you are all enjoying the Forest Fit experience and both Charlie and myself will continue to develop what we provide and keep the training varied and interesting in the future.
Everyone is getting fit, and not just fit but 'Forest' Fit!

Latest News

Hello everybody, and massive thank you to all Forest Fitters who continue to train with us and support us! You make it the great fun that it is. And yes, we like to make it a little tough now and then! :-)

Just to let you know that there is no Forest Fit on Saturday 26th February, due to Wareham Forest being overrun with rally cars! The Sunseeker Rallye is down again for another weekend of racing. So unfortunately, rather than get mown down by a boy racer, we have decided to cancel this week.
Have no fear, we are back with a vengeance the following Wednesday and return to normal session times.

One for the future, we will be introducing another 2 session times, more information to follow, and we are looking at a few surprises with the training along the way!!!! Keep coming, keep getting fitter and stronger and enjoy exercising in the outdoors!

Outdoor Exercise

It is fact:
Training outdoors can burn up to 20 per cent more calories while vitamin D helps maintain a healthy glow.

However, this article below claims as much as 30%. Happy Days Forest Fitters!

Photos from the Forest

These pics were taken on, Saturday 29th January, a very chilly morning, which saw 23 hardy souls join us for 2 great sessions.

Forest Fit

Steve Birtwistle & Charlie Tipper have started weekly sessions since last October of Circuit Styled Training in Wareham Forest. We meet at the Sika Trail car park for the one hour session.
The Session includes a gentle warm up, a combination of different exercises to improve strength, mobility and fitness, and a warm down. We welcome anyone looking to try something a little different training `outdoors` in these beautiful surroundings. Concentrating on each individual as we all get a little fitter.
Longterm we aim to do various sessions, at present on a Wednesday and a Saturday, with groups varying from beginners to advanced, over 60s to running or triathlon specific. In the spring/summer we will definitely do early morning and evening sessions. The Wednesday session at 9.30, and Saturday sessions at 9am & 10.30am are well established with a regular group of Forest Fitters!
We have many regular attendees to Forest Fit who are without question getting fitter and we are upping the tempo accordingly. We look after all our athletes whatever their abiility and monitor their progress through each session and over time.

Above all everyone has a lot of FUN!!

Please contact us if you have any questions at all.

Charlie & Steve
