Suitable clothing needs to be worn during the online and face to face outdoor fitness sessions including trainers for online sessions and ideally trail shoes for the face to face sessions. Time of year and weather dictate what needs to be worn when training outside including a warm hat, gloves and head torch if needed and loose cool clothing for the warmer days.
The face to face fitness sessions usually take place on private property of an educational establishment which means there are toilet facilities available. If the face to face outdoor sessions are held in a public park, then discretion and common sense need to be used!
Each subscription is based on an individual only. There are adult and child ticket subscriptions available if additional members of the Family would like to join in.
For the online fitness sessions, they are in the comfort of your own home either indoors or if you have space, outdoors. The face to face sessions are run usually on the Grange Lane sports fields in Winsford, Cheshire.

Health & Wellbeing
Yes. These are tailor made and usually consist of a 12 week programme with one workshop per week. However, as the programmes are designed to fit the requirements and beyond, the duration of time a programme focuses on can be shorter or longer than 12 weeks.
Yes. These usually occur during one and two day fitness camps but can be arranged around the requirements of the individual or private group any time throughout the year.
At any one time, there can be up to 100 participants online. However the ideal is a maximum of 40 per session to keep it personable and beneficial to the participants.
As the workshops last for 45 minutes in total, you will need to be in a place where you feel relaxed and comfortable, with good access to the internet and also a device with the software ‘zoom’ on it. With the online workshops, it is always best to have a big screen e.g. PC, Laptop, iPad as there is more functionality with the bigger screen. Always have to hand paper and something to write with too and bring with you a list of questions as there is a QnA session at the end of the workshop to help address specific audience questions.
The Workshops are set up to cover a wide range of topics spanning over the 12 week period which include: Hydration, Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep, Acid/Alkaline diets to help ward off illness and disease, Glycaemic index to understand the effect of foods on your blood sugar levels, Nutrition to increase performance during exercise, Nutrition to increase speed on recovery post exercise, The importance of the small intestine and how it works, Nutrient deficient food and the use of supplements; what to avoid, what to use, when to take and what does it all mean, Hydration and nutrition to boost the immune system, increase energy levels and to create general mental agility, Mental fitness, emotional resilience & physical health, knowing self, method and mind to increase performance, Sports injury and sports injury rehabilitation, Quality of Life and personal performance.

These events are generally open to the public, however the main focus is on private group bookings.
Both. We schedule events with fixed routes to provide a specific experience, however we do specialise in putting together tailored itineraries based on the clients need and required outcome.
Yes you do in the UK, however for the International guided biking events, we can arrange your bike for you.
- Buff or similar covering for the mouth and nose
- Small bike pack for food, water, clothing, first aid kit, bike repair kit and essentials
- Clothing to suit to the weather and terrain
- Glasses with sun protection and clear lenses
- Footwear suitable for the weather, terrain and type of pedals on the bike
All UK Guided biking experiences last typically one day but for private bookings, the itinerary is tailor made so can last multiple days depending on the requirements of the group. For Internationals trips, these typically last from 4 days up to 2 weeks. For example, a short break to Slovenia, Italy and France would be two full days of guided biking and for a heli-biking experience in Kazakhstan, that would last for 9 days full remote camping and helicopter pick up guided biking.
There are two essential styles of international guided biking which cover 1) The short break trip which includes beautiful gentle trail and road routes including food and drink as key ingredients with accommodation being typically in a chalet or 3 star hotel, 2) then for the more adventurous longer guided biking adventures, they are typically camping and would need additional consideration of sleeping bag, inflatable mattress, pillow etc. Before embarking on either of these guided biking trip styles, a full suggested kit list is provided.
Short break 2 full day guided biking trip in Slovenia, Italy or France would be a total of a 4 day trip including travel.
The more adventurous guided biking trip in a location such as Kazakhstan, Morocco, British Columbia (Canada), or Tanzania would be between 9-14 days including flight travel.
Something that suits your bike pedal but ultimately a shoe that you feel comfortable in and won’t easily slip off the pedal
Pay close attention to weather reports and be prepared for all weather conditions. Also, the key is not to overheat or get cold. Trying to balance your activity, weather and where you will be is always a bit tricky, but the best preparation of knowing what clothing to take is by trying out what works best for you before you go on the trip.
As the guided biking itineraries are generally tailored to the group, the itinerary will reflect the group’s ability. However, our guided biking experts will carefully manage the group and the group's ability throughout the trip. You don’t need to have lots of experience to enjoy guided biking trips either in the UK on Internationally. You will however have lots of experience after the trip!

Safety first so check the weather and ensure you prepare for the ‘What-ifs.’ Rubbing on the feet and other area of the body can ruin the day for you, so please ensure you are familiar with the clothing you choose that it is comfortable, fast drying, keeps your skin protected and doesn’t rub!
