David Lloyd Clubs launches an inspiring and adrenaline inducing outdoor workout with strength challenges, workouts for total fitness and fun for all the family.

For all those craving an endorphin boost in an outdoor setting, David Lloyd Clubs’ new workout Battlebox is where to find it.

This new workout with four challenging options inspires partakers to get closer to nature and take advantage of the best natural source of vitamin D – the outdoors – as it combines high intensity fitness training, teamwork, and fresh air for an invigorating workout.

Suitable for getting everyone of all abilities, ages and levels of fitness out of an indoors setting, expert instructors guide you through any of the four choices of workout:

Athletic helps develop speed, strength, power, coordination and cardio fitness with an athletically inspired fitness challenge.

Warrior is a total body workout which gets you lifting, carrying, crawling and climbing in an ultimate outdoor obstacle course test.

Strong is a high intensity class that helps build muscle strength and sees you lifting heavy weights across varying distances, pushing sleds and taking on but ramping up exercises often completed in the gym.

For those who want to include the whole family, Play is for adults and children aged 8+. Teamwork, speed, agility, balance and movement are the centre of this class.

Head of Fitness and Programming at David Lloyd Clubs Michelle Dand, says: “Here at David Lloyd Clubs, we’re always looking for new ways to inspire our members and get them moving. With the summer in full swing, taking advantage of the longer days and warmer climates along with a workout that allows you to breathe in fresh air, seemed like the right thing to do.

“But this isn’t just a summer offering. At Battlebox, we say ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes’. We want our members to be able to enjoy the natural benefits and boosts an outdoors workout can bring all year around.

“The class being available in four options means that there is a workout fit for everyone, from those wanting to take on an obstacle challenge to those who want a fun session of exercise for the whole family.”

The 45-55 minute classes are available at the following David Lloyd Clubs as part of a full and varied offering: Lincoln, Acton Park, Birmingham, Harrogate, Manchester North, Norwich, Southampton West End, York, Ringwood, Lichfield, Malaspina, Brussels and Eindhoven.
