Outdoor exercise garden re-opens 29 March 2021

From Monday 29th March, outdoor gyms and leisure facilities can re-open! This means our fun and effective group fitness classes will soon resume in Strong + Bendy’s exercise garden. 

Classes include TRX Suspension Training, Kettlebell Cardio, Shadow Boxing & HIIT, Battle Ropes, and ‘Body Blocks’ (a core conditioning and high intensity workout using a plyo box).  

All fitness levels and bodies welcome. 

Safe socially distanced workouts

All of our outdoor classes are safely socially distanced, with no shared equipment and capped capacity. All equipment is cleaned after each class.

All classes are outside

Any class you see on our timetable right now will be held outside. Please dress accordingly as the classes cannot be moved inside and will run rain or shine.  The garden is sheltered with a canopy but is not 100% water-tight and not heated.

When will the inside studio reopen?

According to the current government roadmap, our indoor fitness studio will re-open from 17 May 2021. 

This is a month later than traditional gyms. We appreciate this is frustrating for our customers and team as we are able to maintain the same, if not greater, levels of control over social distancing as gyms, and have an extremely well ventilated space. We will continue to join campaigns to dispute this discrepancy and welcome you to our full schedule of awesome outdoor classes in the meantime. 

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email rhian@strongandbendy.co.uk or DM us on Instagram.
