Ladies & Gents,
Well, it's a chilly start to March! Some fantastic blustery winds coming in and the 'Beast from the East' is providing plenty of reasons to keep moving during TLA classes! Please do read the following as we have some changes/updates and NEW classes coming to TLA, read on........ + TLA SUP IS COMING BACK!

TLA Studio Timetable changes

March will see the changing around of a few TLA classes on the timetable. Firstly, TLA Kettlebells (Wednesday) will be finishing on 7th March. Monday Kettlebells continues as normal. We will be introducing a new class on Wednesday evenings at 18:15, see details below. Also from Wednesday 7th March, Sunningwell Bootcamp will be permanently outdoors, that's correct - head torches, good preparation and please be punctual at 19:15 otherwise you'll miss out.


starting Wednesday 14th March at 18:15 (45 minutes)

TRX & Spin Fusion Run in a HIIT style format TRX Spin Fusion will be aimed at those who wish to have a cardio/strength/high energy/fun and seriously effective workout in 45 minutes. This class will be aimed at beginners but can easily cater for intermediate standards also. The class is split into two with 50% working on TRX and 50% working on Spin, both with differing programmes and working for short, high intensity intervals. If you have not trained with TRX before then this is the perfect start for you!

Tuesday and Thursday Morning Bootcamps (Block Bookings)

Announcement - you can now use your TLA block booking card at these bootcamps. If you find yourself with a morning off and fancy a great outdoor workout - come along to Wootton and Dry Sandford Community Centre playing fields on a Tuesday morning at 9:30 or The TLA Studio (outside) on Thursdays at 9:30 (term time only). This applies for block booking cards only.

Pre-Event Massage

Getting ready for that all important event.......? Are you looking after your condition.......?

Marathons, Triathlons, 5k & 10k races, walk for life, swimming events are all fantastic events which, let's be honest, you train hard for and dedicate hours of commitment to. So much so that we often forget about actually looking after the other side of things such as, stretching, massage, mobility, recovery time. Well don't forget it! It should make up a huge part of your preparation. At TLA Fitness we offer these great services both at the TLA studio and at home. If you haven't already planned this into your schedule then now is the time.

Please book directly by emailing '' and click here to see the treatments Pollyanna provides both at home or at The TLA Studio.

TLA SUP is Back :)

Summer 2016 saw the formation of TLA SUP which was really well received. We ran multiple Ready2Ride certifications, SUP bootcamps, SUP Yoga and SUP Speed. With a very busy 2017 and lack of manpower, we were unable to do much on the water. The exciting news is that we now have a SUP team (Tom, Jim and Katia) who are all very excited to be bringing you a new SUP Club and itinerary in the coming weeks and months. This will include day trips and hopefully overnight SUP trips. TLA SUP is currently running on Facebook, please follow this link and join us ...... at a later date it will be built in to the TLA site.

Really looking forwards to seeing you all on the water.
