Looking at exercise a little differently
Fitness At The Farm
We exercise because it’s fun and makes us feel great. We know that the outcome of doing lots of exercise is getting fitter, stronger and healthier, so we don’t feel the need to involve scales or track calories burned. We work hard, we push ourselves in every session and we always come away smiling. When you’re not pressuring yourself to reach some arbitrary goal or complete a randomly chosen number of reps, you’ll end up really enjoying the exercise that you’re doing.
If you don’t follow strict exercise plans, which in our experience are boring and almost impossible to stick to, then you can concentrate on having great workouts every time. As your strength and fitness grows, we will push you harder and further to ensure that you keep feeling the results.
We love to be outside
Not only does being outside allow you to enjoy the beautiful views, fresh air and smells of the countryside, it is also extremely beneficial to mental health and general wellbeing. Luckily, we are based on a beautiful farm in the heart of Oxfordshire where outside space is in abundance. We like to take things back to basics At The Farm so most of our ‘equipment’ is either completely natural or made from materials found on the farm. We get your body working as it’s meant to be worked, moving and pulling and lifting in ways that the human body was made for.
Circuits are a fun and energetic class held in the open air at Collins Farm, suitable for any level of fitness. Every class is different and you will experience a full bodied workout. We tend to start the class with an optional jog to warm up (of any length you like) and then after some dynamic stretching, go in to a series of functional movement stations that will challenge you whilst growing your strength and fitness. They include cardio resistance, strength & conditioning and core stability. The beauty of circuits is that you can go at your own pace, everyone is focused on their own workout and no one is concerned with what you are doing. Some people will choose to take things slower, others will go as hard as possible – I encourage both approaches, so long as you listen to your body, enjoy yourself and challenge yourself each time.
Boxercise is an exciting boxing based cardio class using pads and gloves. You will learn some great new skills and boxing techniques from our extremely experienced instructor, Martin Dobinson, as well as growing your strength, coordination and fitness.
Bootcamp is an early morning workout every Monday and evening class every Tuesday with the awesome Jenny Eeley to kick start your week with a bang. Jenny’s Bootcamps are a mix of cardio and strength training, designed to get you moving. You’ll leave the class feeling exhilarated and energised…and maybe a little bit achey, but ready to take on the week ahead.
