HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, 100% personal effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.

1. Increases Your Metabolism
2. Quick and Convenient
3. Fun and Mentally rewarding by increasing self confidence in a number of ways

Into the Wild with TLA in the Pyrenees!


Adventure into the wild with TLA this coming May....

During the formation of TLA Fitness, it's been clear that one of the areas that is enjoyed most by our clients is that of training with like minded people outdoors! Getting outdoors, being active and really engaging with the surroundings is something we all love to do! So... I have decided to gather interest on who would be up for a 4 day, 3 night (Fri-Mon) Adventure Hike into the wild to spend an amazing night camping under the stars in the beautiful Pyrenees in the south of France, based at the picturesque Chateau de Gere! There will of course be challenge, team camaraderie, adventure, great food, excellent instruction and time to switch off in the wild and discover new skills.

Who is this suitable for? If you are interested in the above and below and it grabs your attention then it's most likely for you. Being a firm believer in setting a goal or having a target then this offers exactly that. Living on what you carry on your back and being in and among one of the most scenic mountain ranges, being at the forefront of nature, exploring and giving yourself that all important head space, meeting others and striking new relationships is part of the fun and excitement that this trip will bring to you.



The weekend itinerary:

Friday: Afternoon arrival at Lourdes airport - Transit to Chateau de Gere - Evening meal + Kit issue & Kit preparation

Saturday: Breakfast at Chateau - Kit inspection - Transit to start point, Lac de Bious Artigues - Hike - Set up camp at Lac de Peyreget - Camp routine/Dinner/Bushcraft 

Sunday: Breakfast at camp-site - Strike camp - Circuit of Pic de Midi d'Ossau - Arrive back at transport (Lac de Bious-Artigues) rtn to Chateau de Gere - Free time(swim, massage, relax) - Dinner-BBQ at chateau

Monday: Breakfast served at chateau - Team Games - Trip to local town for coffee/crepes/souvenirs - Transport leaves for Lourdes airport

Cost would be £499 per person (all inclusive) + flights (not included).Additional activities can be arranged during the hike also at a small additional cost Abseiling, Rock Climbing, Tyrolean Traverse, Survival Training.

The dates in which I am looking to explore are: either 11th-14th May OR 25th-28th May (BH weekend), please do email your preferred dates.

If you would genuinely be interested please email Tom on 'tom@tlafitness.com' and I will keep you posted.

Autumn training tips....

Autumn is upon us, but don't be SAD and don't let your training fall with the leaves! Below are TLA's 3 Autumn Kit Tips to put a smile on your face and give you a good excuse to go any buy yourself some training goodies!

The daylight is becoming noticeably shorter so please be aware of this when you’re out and about training on your own! I have seen numerous runners and cyclists the past 3-4 weeks with nil visibility - NOT cool. High vis + lights are a very good/safe idea.
 

Three Autumn Kit Tips:


1. Check out your Autumn/Winter wardrobe
Is all last years kit still fine? Or does it need one or two additions? If you are new to bootcamps or outdoor training and want to keep them going through the autumn and winter months, as it gets cooler in the mornings and evenings, you will need to put on an extra layer. Layers can always be secured in the instructor's  vehicle during TLA classes (TLA Bootcamps).

2. Remember the accessories
On colder mornings or evenings, those first few minutes when you get out of the door are when you will feel the chill. Lightweight hat and gloves will help you cope with this particularly if your hands end up on frozen ground!

3. Are you visible? Head torches for Sunningwell Bootcamp please!
With the shortening days, just make sure you are safe. There are so many hi-vis tops and jackets out there so don't think you'll be looking silly by wearing one and also head torches to help you see and be seen. TLA's Sunningwell Bootcamp always requires you to bring along a head torch, please don't forget it!
