WINDOVER FITNESS : a unique location for Studio and exclusive Training Park

We are currently offering Personal Training in the North Downs of East Surrey (Tandridge area) currently only on a Monday each week ~  from the Matchpoint Lifeline gym at Hurst Green to the south of Oxted.

At our base in East Sussex WINDOVER FITNESS has own Personal Training STUDIO, purely for one-to-one and small group training *(max 1-to-3).  This is truly a training room with a view, set in the heart of the South Downs and the Cuckmere Valley.  There we also offer POWER PLATE® training (WHOLE BODY VIBRATION TECHNIQUE) as well as sports-specific conditioning and weight management classes; in our exclusive indoor and outdoor training areas.  

The Gym of the Outdoors in our Training Park has plenty of space for larger group activities when the weather permits.

Windover Fitness specialises in the GYM of the OUTDOORS ~ especially for fok who do not wish to exercise indoors or using a static machine! 

We only offer NUTRITION GUIDANCE exclusively as a part of our holistic approach to fitness : taking a combination of diet and lifestyle for a thorough review in seeking the achievement of OPTIMUM HEALTH (you are what you eat ... and can absorb) for you.

NOTE :  We do not offer Nutritional Consultations ("Nutritional Therapy") relating to specific health conditions.

Finally, One-to-One PERSONAL TRAINING ~ for Fitness and Weight Management.  Allied to this are the many Group Activities offered each month, where individuals who prefer the companionship and security of exercising in a Group can meet and develop new friendships.

Now you really can grasp the reins as you take control of your own health and fitness. 

You should definitely consult your GP first if  :
you have not exercised for some time, suffer from breathlessness, dizziness, chest pains or have a pre-existing medical condition; or
you have led a particularly sedentary lifestyle; or
you have not seen your GP for many months (or longer!) ...

HOWEVER, in most cases the response will be that it is more dangerous for your health and longevity to continue as you have been unless that is already under medical advice ... i.e. ~ to maintain an inactive or otherwise sedentary lifestyle.

Now explore through our pages, and find out more about what you can do to keep trim, fit and healthy through those middle years ... FORTY, fifty and "fifty-plus" ... and BEYOND.
