The benefits of outdoor fitness in Horsham

Improved mood and mental health

Studies show that training outdoors can help to improve mood, reduce stress and overall improve mental wellbeing and health. Try adding some outdoor fitness to your workout regime and see if you notice the difference.

Access to the best fitness equipment

Hand picked by our fully qualified personal trainers, you can enhance your fitness and workout regime from using our high quality equipment that is designed to push your fitness to the next level.

Variation from your regular workouts

Our members say they love the variation between using the regular gym and the outdoor Fitness Yard, as exercising outdoors ensures they don’t become complacent or bored with their exercise routine. Taking an exercise class outside with views of the surrounding Horsham countryside might be just what you need to start enjoying working out again.

Enjoy nature as you workout

Outdoor spaces are far more visually appealing and stimulating than working out indoors. This can help to motivate you to work even harder and enjoy your workout even more.

The Fitness Team has put together some videos to show you how to use and get the most out of some of the equipment in the Fitness Yard.
