What we're about

GET OUT and GET FIT AGAIN AFTER LOCKDOWN.

Do you like to BREATHE FRESH AIR?   Do you want to IMPROVE YOUR FITNESS LEVELS?   Do you like GREEN WALKS in the COUNTRYSIDE or by the SEASIDE?  Do you prefer walks in PARKS by LAKES, CANALS, RIVERS, rather than through busy city streets?

Do you want to see new SECRET PLACES in London, places that you might not otherwise have reason to visit?
