WHAT? Obstacle training and raw fitness concepts are gaining popularity among women. More than ever, women want to work and train hard, to push themselves physically and mentally, which is why we’re seeing sports and classes being stripped back to basics. Enter Bear Grylls Fitness, the obstacle-style fitness spaces set up by the intrepid explorer himself (and his PT Natt Summers).
WHY? Both avid adventurers, Bear and Natt know what it means to be fit – and who wouldn’t want to train in the same way? From hanging to climbing to pulling to crawling to leaping, Bear Grylls Fitness’ multi-level obstacle course is a full-body workout that pushes the body in new ways, giving you a session that you’re not only proud of, but that reaps the results, too. ‘Inspirational hashtags including #thisgirlcan, #girlswholift and #strongnotskinny create a rallying cry for girls to come together, gain confidence, self belief and a new found understanding that once maledominated fitness experiences can be enjoyed by women as much as men,’ says Natt. WHERE? Locations in Manchester, Derby and Croydon. From £6.75, head to beargryllsfitness. com for information.
