The world has gone crazy but it’s always good to focus on the positives. If your office has shut down and you have more time in the morning without the commute, join us at Fitbitch

Small groups, outdoors in the fresh air, use the time out from London commuting to get fitter and stronger on Hove seafront.

We are offering two week trials to new members whose work has been affected by the virus, for £20 starting either 16th March or March 30th.

The same rules apply as elsewhere; if you’re experiencing any symptoms that may put yourself or others at risk, don’t attend. But if you’ve just been forced to work from home, come and make the most of it!

The Strong & Supple Body

Having a strong, supple body brings confidence and improved mental well being.

Building strength can be one of the most empowering workouts that you can do. But it is also, the one that has the most impact on your body, health and body shape, particularly if you are aged late thirties upwards.

This is because you start losing muscle mass, and this impacts not only how your body looks, the movement of your body AND your hormone balance.

This four week course (or drop in for three weeks to miss the half term) will work on building your superwoman body, using metabolic circuits and kettlebells, body weight and core to create a strong, supple body.

You’ll be left feeling ready to take on the world.

 

Choose 6.15am or 7am. £120 for four weeks, £95 for three weeks not including w/c February 17th).

Use the code makemestrong at checkout for discount off the four week course.

If you’re new to running or are just coming back to it after a long time off, join us for this fun ten week introduction to running. This is designed to a be stress-free, enjoyable route into running where there will be no pressure to run at a certain speed or a certain distance.

Using fun fitness games and unique mental strategies, we’ll help you to improve your running fitness and distance without you realising that you’re even running. We now have over nine years of helping to coach women of all levels, but a vast majority as beginners, to become runners and to ENJOY running.

The course is designed in such a way that it doesn’t matter if you have to miss a week now and again although we have a Facebook support group where you can also get tips and advice.

If you want to have a target, we can also give you that and help  you to achieve it.

The aim for every one is that in ten weeks, we will all graduate together by doing park run on Hove Prom, where you will no only run and complete it, but even feel confident to sprint to the finish line.

There will be no session on half term week.

Strength for Running

January 4, 2018 at 7:00
Posted by Rachael Woolston

If you are a runner, strength and conditioning should be as essential to your training as running. It will help you to become a better, more efficient runner and most importantly, help to prevent injuries. What you spend on strength and conditioning now – particularly if taking on the Brighton Half Marathon or Marathon, will save you lots of money that you’re likely to end up having to spend on expensive physio treatments later on.

I’ve been running now for over 17 years, and have done 10 marathons in the last five years, countless half marathons, trail races and long endurance events and have developed this 30 minute class to provide the essential strength work that your body needs. You need to be doing at least three sessions per week but you can use some of these exercises to do your own at home 15 minute version, we’ll show you how.

We are keeping the class limited to eight people only. No drop ins are allowed because we work on a personal level to regress/progress each exercise according to each individual. Plus, to get strong, you need to be consistent which is not possible when you do the occasional class.

This class will run for 30 minutes. You will need to bring a yoga mat. We meet at at the top of The Droveway as it intersects Goldstone Cresce
