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
