Fitness classes in London’s green spaces have become very familiar, with more people appreciating the mental and physical benefits of exercising in the open air. The chances are, if you’ve seen enthusiastic locals working out in Ravenscourt Park, the sessions are being run by Adele Andersen and her team.

Born and raised in Australia, Adele arrived in the UK in 2006 and worked for The History Channel, where she was ‘roped into’ the office gym culture – and loved it. So much so, she trained as an instructor, joined Ravenscourt Park’s Trilogy Bootcamp and took over the business in 2014, rebranding it as Ravenscourt Bootcamp.

‘There’s a huge emphasis on the fun element in what we do,’ explains Adele. ‘We are called a Bootcamp, but there’s absolutely nothing intimidating or military about us: everyone is very supportive and we create a friendly atmosphere.’

With 12 weekly classes held over six mornings come rain or shine (Mon/Wed/Fri at 7, 8 and 9am, Tues/Thurs at 7am and Sat at 9:30am), Adele manages the largest adult programme in the Park. Clients can mix and match between 45-minute sessions – circuits, weights, high intensity interval training and team-based Fri-Yay – designed to build strength, improve cardio, relieve stress and boost confidence.

‘We cater for all fitness levels and our clients are aged from 20s to 70s,’ says Adele. ‘They exercise at their own pace and, as instructors, we have different teaching styles and specialities. For example, Sylvia is the weights expert – she comes with her dumbbells, kettlebells and ropes – and Vanessa takes the interval training.

‘We offer flexible memberships (including Pay-As-You-Go) and, if you mention this article, a free trial week of classes for readers of Hammersmith & Fulham Locals. We’re a community: people stay for years, friendships are made and we arrange regular social events. If you want to have fun getting fit, we would love to meet you!’
