Wake up and get fit in beautiful Lewes

May 5, 2017 at 12:15
Posted by Rachael Woolston

After a winter break, we’re back in Lewes this Monday May 8th for a three week course that will leave you feeling fantastic

As a coach, I’ve now trained women in lots of different locations and few beat the beautiful Lewes. Situated in the playground adjacent to Pells Pool, our summer courses are the perfect way to get in shape and feeling great.

With the sun bathing the area in warm light, it’s a peaceful, beautiful place to exercise in. And, as with all our courses, we keep you guessing as to what is to come on each session.

You may be using the playground equipment one day, another, exploring the riverside on a beautiful trail run. Whatever the case, and whatever your fitness level, this will help you get fit, strong and supple.

Our final booking day ends tomorrow, Saturday at noon. Come and join the Lewes ladies for some life-affirming – and butt firming – fitness and healthy living.

Psst…and if you don’t have to rush off to work, Pells Pools opens on May 13th and they have early morning swims 7-9am. It’s fab!

The course costs £120 for three weeks, running Monday, Weds and Friday at 6.15am-7am or 7am-7.45am).

Join us starting 18th April for the big transform – Spring Shape Up

April 13, 2017 at 11:58
Posted by Rachael Woolston

At the beginning of this month, we celebrated our 8th birthday, welcoming back 42 women, of which 90% have been with us since we started which means we must be doing something right!


It was amazing to see what these women have achieved, many who started with Fitbitch simply wanting to lose some weight after having a baby or to feel fitter. Now, many of them are running 5km or marathons, taking part in triathlons and obstacle races, all things that they never even thought that they wanted to do back on day one, feeling terribly unfit and apprehensive about signing up and what they’d got themselves involved in.

I launched Fitbitch as a way of offering busy women a one-stop course that provides everything you need to get fit, in shape and to have fun. No having to book a yoga session at one place, a running session at another; simply pay your course fee, turn up and every session is covered, meaning that you learn more about your body and what is possible in four weeks, than you ever could with a year of trying to make it to the gym.

Simplicity is key; if the only thing you have to worry about is getting out of bed and to the seafront or the park, then success is guaranteed. There are no ifs and buts and what if it doesn’t work. It works. Two or three times per week, for a month creates guaranteed results. In fact, last month we did a five session, one week course and women lost up to four pounds. For some, it’s about weight-loss, others, getting fit or getting outside. Whatever your goal, you get there. Our courses are a financial commitment but then we aren’t like other gyms or bootcamps. We offer a lot; support, camaraderie, expert coaches, eating plans, goal setting and help with creating a healthy habit that stays with you even if you only ever do one course with us. Plus, there are only 12 women per course so you know you will get personalised support and coaching.

So, why not join us this Tuesday April 18th for the start of our next four week course at Hove Seafront or Queen’s Park? (No sessions on bank holidays). Or Lewes (Monday, Weds, Friday) starting 8th May for three weeks.

Founder of Fitbitch, Rachael will be back to take Hove seafront while Tara will be taking Queen’s Park and Amy will be taking on Lewes early morning course.

Get fit, feel fabulous and get your mojo handed to you in bucketfuls!

Free Girls Run the World Run Together

September 20, 2016 at 7:00
Posted by Rachael Woolston


If you want to run with like-minded women who understand what it’s like to be a beginner, an improver, a chatter or a mover, join us on our free GRTW get togethers led by our fantastic team of ambassadors – our Run Angels. They started with us as total beginners and now want to pass on their love of running to others.

Each run is no longer than 5km and you decide whether you want to run it with the tortoise and chat group or the lionesses.

Whatever you choose, you’ll develop your running and meet a great bunch of women who will inspire and motivate you to keep running.

Locations rotate through Hove Seafront, Preston Park, Madeira Drive, Hove Park on a weekly basis to provide variety.

Pace Groups

Tortoise 10 min miles and over

You are relatively new to running, are just returning to running or simply enjoy running as a time to chat, breathe and take in the sights.

Hare 9/10 min miles

So , you’ve finally begun to realise you like this running lark and you’re not just a jogger? You’ve even started finding yourself going into running stores more than H&M. You feel faster and are looking to improve. This group is for you.

Lioness 8-9 min miles

You’ve been running for a while, or are naturally speedy and are aiming for good race times. You know the difference between Strava and Spotify and use it regularly.

Cheetah – 7-8 min miles

You’ve got the training watch, running shoes for the road and trail and like to try and improve your pace on every run. Running for competition you want to run fast.


Important rules of  GRTW

  • You must be able to run 5km to join the runs.
  • Be polite and run within the pace group you set off with. If it’s too fast, drop back to the one behind and stay within that group even if it feels a little slow. The RunAngels give their time voluntarily to help you run so don’t make it hard for them.
  • IT IS ESSENTIAL that you book your run via eventbrite and fill in our PAR-Q if you have not run with us before. No booking, no run. Click here to book,

I’ve been inspired to start running again


The Lewes boot camp was a fantastic experience. I was apprehensive before starting, having never done any thing like this before, but each session was fun and inclusive. And there was always a focus on technique and how to improve on things. I’m inspired to start running again, having not run for many years, thanks to the coach, Rachael and the new friends I met on the course.

Lewes Pop Up Fitness

August 19, 2016 at 1:08
Posted by Rachael Woolston

Whether you are a Lewes resident or live further afield and have time off this summer, why not try our one week healthy eating and fitness course w/c 22nd  August?


We love the beach and parks of Brighton and Hove but we get really excited about exploration and using incredible spaces that are as much part of our fitness courses as the exercises and eating plans themselves.

From skate parks to children’s playgrounds, seascapes to the Downs, the spaces we use are chosen specifically to boost your well being and health because they are simply so life affirming.

Last month we launched in Worthing, making the most of one of the most beautiful seafronts along the South Coast (and we have lots of other unique spaces planned for our course starting  Sept 12th so before September 1st using the code EarlyBird for 10% discount!). Next week we are doing a pop-up fitness week in Lewes. It will be right near Pells Pools (NOT in the pools itself) which has one more week of early morning swimming left (7am-9am) before it closes. So, if you have time off work you could even do our pop up fitness course (including strength for metabolic health, fun play-filled fitness sessions and even some yoga) and finish with a swim….

Don’t worry though if you are not local to Lewes, we are holding our usual one week blitzes in Hove and Queen’s Park too. But hurry to book because we ONLY take small groups for a bespoke, personalised service.

Ooh…and did we mention that the temperature rises again all next week…? Come and enjoy your retreat courses right on your doorstep.

Book Hove, Queen’s Park, Lewes or Worthing by visiting our BOOKING PAGE, then selecting location and then course.

Boost your body confidence in a week

August 4, 2016 at 4:02
Posted by Rachael Woolston

Moving your body, setting achievable fitness and healthy eating goals AND reaching those goals are all positive steps that contribute to making you feel body confident. And that’s what our focus is in our one week fitness and healthy eating blasts every week during August in Brighton & Hove, Worthing and Lewes


What is the single biggest obstacle in getting fit and healthy? Often your own mind telling you, ‘No, you don’t have time to get fit so what’s the point of only running once per week, you may as well not bother.’

Or, ‘I’ve just eaten a doughnut. Oh, what’s the bl**dy point now? I might as well forget about eating healthily I’ve got no will power.’

Yep, that big, massive obstacle that gets in your way of getting fit and eating healthily is all too often, you. But it doesn’t have to be. Creating the right environment where you no longer need to rely on will power or motivation is how we help you to transform yourself.

Throughout August, we have one week courses for all levels (whether you’re a new mum, a get fit quick for holiday type, a fifty-plus woman who doesn’t feel catered for by usual fitness companies, or a super fittie who needs some inspiration). All you have to do is turn up, we provide the personalised support, the coaching expertise, the eating plan, the online support via Instagram and Twitter and – most importantly – the fun, camaraderie and support.

Here’s what one of our clients, Nicole had to say about her first experience of a Fitbitch camp on our newest launch in Worthing…

My course with Fitbitch in Worthing was encouraging, motivating & inspiring. I’m loving new experiences, I feel more confident and I’m hugely inspired by the instructors & other members of Fitbitch who are also achieving their own amazing goals. I loved all of it, the variation, the challenge and the fact that I’ve met some fabulous ladies!

Worthing in August runs Mon, Weds & Fri – w/c 8th and 15th August, £40 with 10% discount if booked together

Lewes – NEW LAUNCH w/c 22nd August

Queen’s Park & Hove run Mon – Friday, w/c every Monday in August, £60, with discounts when booked together
