Over the last eight years, we’ve coached hundreds of amazing women who have gone on to become firm friends who have continued exercising and racing together.

And to them, we owe the fact that the name of Fitbitch has become synonmous with motivated and inspiring women, who are inclusive of others no matter what their size, shape or fitness level.

To celebrate all the marvellous women of Fitbitch, past, present and future, we are launching a members only area, where you can connect or re-connect with those you have done camps with. It’s a place to share news, feel inspired by the challenges that others are taking on, get inspired to join in challenges as well as a space where we will offer exclusive discounts and member only events.

To join, you need to have attended at least one boot camp since we started in 2008. It’s free to join.

Run Fit, Preston Park

January 10, 2017 at 9:30
Posted by Rachael Woolston

Want to get fitter and feel strong and more confident when you run? Then this course is for you.

This 45 minute class involves body weight and resistance band exercises, interspersed with short running intervals of no longer than four minutes. This course enables us to work personally with all levels of runners; if you’re a beginner, you get to run a little bit and stop just when you think you can’t run anymore as we do some strength work. And if you’re a regular runner,  our coaches can challenge you to run the intervals a little faster.

Most of all, this course is about building your fitness and stability so you feel good and gain confidence.

The course runs in four week blocks and there are no single session drop ins in order to allow us to help each runner develop over the course.

On booking the course, you confirmation email will contain a link to a health form which must be filled out before attendance.  Meeting is at the entrance to Preston Park on Preston Drove where the velodrome is.

#womens100 – women’s cycling

July 21, 2014 at 11:47
Posted by Rachael Woolston

On July 20th, as part of our new women’s cycling initiative #fitbitchrideseries, we joined Rapha’s bid to get 8000 women cycling 100km

Hot, hot, hot, is how the day started and ended. But with a bit more sweat, grime and chain grease, etched onto calf muscles and smeared on faces, at the finish.

Cycling 100km is no mean feat. Add on almost 50km more, as some of us did, and it becomes a battle of mind over aching muscles and fatigue (unless your name is Anna Stavrianakis, who is a champion cyclist in the making).

But six of us took part last weekend, with two of the Fitbitch crew, Paulina Alwin and Elouise De Santo, both beginners, doing the ride with the Breeze Network. Set up to encourage more women into cycling, all their rides are free and perfect for beginners.

Meanwhile, another five (one cyclist met us en route) rode almost 150ms, out and back to Box Hill in the North Downs, which formed part of the Olympic cycling route.

Summiting Box Hill, the cafe was full of cyclists. Still, mostly male but at least we knew our contribution to Rapha’s campaign, #womens100, helped swell the numbers of female cyclists out on their bikes around the world that day to 7538, just shy of their 8000 target.

Here at Fitbitch though, we are not content to sit back and increase participation for just that one day. Our ongoing target is to see women getting on their bikes and being part of a competitive, but supportive cycling community.

So why not join our #fitbitchrideseries? You can read about it more HERE.

It is completely FREE. All we ask is that you participate, both in taking part AND in helping out. This will mean taking your turn in helping to ride at the back of a group, and ride/lead at the front of a group that suits your pace.

If you are a beginner who just wants to cycle socially, the Breeze network is the ideal solution.

Alternatively, the #fitbitchrideseries is about training for an event, whether it’s MTB women’s only race, Stilletoes on Wheels, or a cyclo sportive. This does NOT mean that you have to be super fast or super fit. Just willing to train to improve and enter races. We will have different paced groups suitable for different speeds.

We have workshops coming up on bike maintenance, how to ride in a peloton, single track MTB and much more. To find out more visit our Timetable. All of the specific details of training rides will be posted in our closed Facebook group.  Request to join HERE.
