Take a casual stroll past Barnton Park Lawn Tennis Club on a Thursday night, and you would be forgiven for thinking that the lady players had all lost their rackets! That’s because FIT 2 SHINE have a regular booking to run fitness classes on Barnton’s padel court.
The Thursday night class is a mix of strength and cardio with elements of non-contact martial arts, led by Vicki. Vicki, Ana and Ivana are the three coaches who make up FIT 2 SHINE – an Edinburgh-based group for ladies running a range of fitness classes with a growing following for their outdoor workouts.
Ana told us why the padel court is ideal for their needs: “Our members love working out outdoors, but in the winter if you finish work at 5pm it’s already dark. Normally we exercise around Lauriston Castle Estate or Davidson’s Mains Park but evening workouts in the park don’t seem all that safe and appealing. The padel court provides us with a great outdoor, well-lit space with a non-slippery surface and plenty of room for social distancing. Our members feel safe, and that’s hugely important to us.”
Join the class this Thursday, 23rd December at 6pm, for the last outdoor workout of 2021. Or kick-start the new year with a FREE week of unlimited classes – both outdoor and Zoom. Try strength, cardio, yoga, Zumba, Balanc
e or Retro Aerobics workouts and be FIT 2 SHINE! To claim your week, email email@example.com or contact Ana on 07999711008.
