Due to a scheduling conflict at the venue, thewine tastingwon't be able to go ahead on the proposed date (6th April), but new plans are formulating and we hope to have an update soon.

As the mornings get cooler and darker, it seems timely to revisit the benefits of choosing to start the day with an outdoor bootcamp. Now is the time to cement the habits which will carry you into the winter months. Obviously you're all jumping out of bed to hang out with Andy, but here are some more advantages to keep in mind.Variety: Outdoor environments provide a wide range of natural elements such as hills, stairs, walls, and open spaces, allowing for diverse and engaging workouts. Not to mention the water views! Have you ever noticed an area in the park that you think might offer something interesting for the group? Mention it! Fresh air: Exercising outdoors in fresh air can increase oxygen intake and improve overall energy levels. Cooler temperatures can also be invigorating.Vitamin D: Being outside exposes you to sunlight, which helps your body produce vitamin D, crucial for bone health and overall well-being.Mental well-being: Regular exercise can increase self-confidence, improve your mood, help you relax, and lower symptoms of mild depression and anxiety. Outdoor workouts take this further, leveraging the calming effect of nature.Social interaction: Bootcamp fosters a sense of community and provides motivation and support from fellow participants.Overall, an outdoor bootcamp offers a refreshing and stimulating exercise environment, combining physical activity with the benefits of nature. Getting together to start the day in a positive way, with a friendly community of encouraging peers, is the icing on the cake. Highlights are below. We may need a fancier camera to capture the action in the dark, but Daylight Saving will end in a few weeks, and the mornings will become lighter.
