5 reasons to spend more time outdoors...

  At last, spring has sprung! With the thermometer finally creeping up and the days getting longer, there's no better time to enjoy the great outdoors. In fact, spending time outside in the sun has been proven to boost your health and wellness:
  • Improves your mood
Studies have shown that being outside in nature makes us feel connected with the natural world. Feeling like we belong in our environment fosters feelings of contentment and a positive, sunny outlook!
  • Busts boredom
Even taking a short walk outside can help you to feel more alert. Nature provides plenty of sensory stimulation that leaves feelings of lethargy and boredom in the dust.
  • Increases levels of vitamin D
It’s common knowledge that our bodies’ main source of vitamin D is sunlight. Vitamin D is essential in helping us to fend off both mental and physical illnesses, including stress and anxiety, osteoporosis and even heart disease.
  • Helps you heal and boosts your immune system
Studies have shown that exposure to natural sunlight promotes healing and recovery. Vitamin D is also important in maintaining your immune system, meaning fewer coughs, sneezes and sniffles!
  • Lowers cholesterol
Did you know that after only a few minutes in the sun, your body starts to transform cholesterol into vitamin D? Spending time outdoors is an easy way to boost your health. With so many wonderful health benefits to be had, spending time outside in nature is an easy, fun way to give your health and wellness a boost. So, what are you waiting for? There’s a great big world out there to enjoy!

All levels

These classes have been specifically designed to allow participants to work at their own intensity level, with the ability to modify all exercises according to their own personal fitness.


A person new to training or an individual with below average fitness levels can be termed as a beginner. These classes are also suitable for those returning to exercise after a break/injury.


A person training at intermediate level should have a fair amount of base fitness and coordination and thus can be exposed to a higher intensity workout.


At an advanced level, the participant should have experience in subjecting themselves to high intensity training on a regular basis. Every person starting off as a beginner should aspire to reach this level.

Online booking is available for members for classes, activities and spa treatments.
Non-members can book our spa treatments online, and please call 01983 766222 to book classes or activities.
