Paola’s Body Barre

Feel the burn like never before at one of the newly launched outdoor classes from Paola’s Body Barre. A mixture of pilates, cardio, strength, ballet and dance-based moves, classes are harder than the average barre class. But your body will thank you for it – after just a few sessions you’ll feel leaner, stronger and more toned. Classes are taking place on both Wandsworth Common and Bishop’s Park, and all you need to bring is a mat and a resistance band. £10 per class,

Boutique London fitness studio Core Collective is now running two classes outdoors: Bodyweight/HIIT and Run/HIIT. These will take place near their Kensington and St John’s Wood studios and on Clapham Common throughout the summer months.

Foreign holidays may seem a long way off at the moment – but fear not: there are sandy shores closer to home. Fulham’s beach-inspired hotspot, Neverland London, is offering 75-minute yoga flows on Saturday mornings, led by Cassie McClements, founder of Pop Up Yoga Club. £20 per class including entry to Neverland London and a vegan treat,

94 days later and we have finally been able to put classes back on our schedule! Possibly one or the happiest days in a long time! The workouts will be looking a little different, namely they’ll be outside – currently with a maximum of 5 other people (including your trainer). We’re running 2 different body weight classes. ForeRestore, a mobility based flow class. ForeStrength a HIIT class with lots of plyometrics. You can book via our website or @mindbody.
