A NEW outdoor-based fitness zone is proving popular at David Lloyd Southend.

‘Battlebox’ was launched last weekend and provides a wide range of benefits, according to group exercise manager Jade Blackabee.

“Our outdoor Battlebox class is perfect if you want to mix up your workout and try something new,” said Blackabee.

“If you love the endorphin boost that training outdoors can bring, then look no further.

“This intense full body fitness training includes high energy challenges, teamwork and all important fresh-air.

“A 45 minute Battlebox class will challenge you while providing a unique alternative to your usual routine.”

Classes are described as being suitable for all levels and those taking part can choose from four different work-outs.

“There’s the warrior for the ultimate challenge, athletic for total fitness, strong for building strength and play for all the family,” added Blackabee.
