For so many of us in London, exercise is a chore that needs to be fitted in between work, social engagements and everything else we have to do. Look at any London gym at 5am in the morning and you’ll find hundreds of people up and pounding it out on the treadmill and working on the weight machines, before heading to their daily commute to the office. While this is no bad thing and having an early morning routine has been proven to encourage productivity throughout the day, we at Cooler can’t help but notice that the joy of movement and exercise is being forgotten a little, as are some of the beautiful spots in the city, as we all descend down the stairs to our air conditioned gyms each day.
This autumn through our TrailFit campaign, we want to make exercise the main event that it should be and bring more people into the awesome green spaces that London has to offer. Whether you only have an hour in the morning to workout and run to work, or you want to spend a whole day at the weekend moving your body, there’s a park close to your part of the city that is perfect for just that.
This TrailFit city guide has been created with personal trainer and all round adventure woman Sophie Everard to show you the different places in London that you can find green spaces to work out. Here are our three TrailFit locations you should hit this week, along with some example workouts and our favourite healthy food spot nearby, so you can treat yourself to some post workout fuel.
