****Please note this is a working updating blog so only in draft stage - Not finished, edited or proof checked. I am mildly dyslexic so some of the below may not make sense yet :)
Please note these are all suggestions - We understand every person has their own person preference on what they like to wear, thickness, style and how their body adapts to certain items of clothing. (IE: Performance wise, over heating and comfortability; Waterproof vs breathing in clothes and trainers)
Hats with lights ideas and deals we have found
Head Torches ideas
We are now encouraging you to keep your own keys/ valuables on yourself when training to avoid the potential spread of covid.
Below are a few suggestions you could like at:
Thermal base-layers in the winter can really help keep you warm in the winter, can help with absorbing sweat and be a great asset if you go walking in colder area / high mountains.
Performance Base-layers can aid with muscle movement and recovery (But less about warmth for the winter) They can absorb sweat, help with windy nights and provide an extra layer without you feeling too heavy, with extra clothing on. Personally in moderate to cold weather I warm up fast when exercising so go for Performance base layer. 2XU's and SKINS are my preferred choices
Gloves Water Resistance, Thermal, multipurpose use with good grips for using equipment
Thinner Outdoors / Running (Not as water proof but good in cold dryer weather or for running)
Waterproof and windproof jackets are generally a personal choice! Some people like long sleeve and some prefer a Gillet style with no sleeves! A good lightweight waterproof will be good in the winter month. Remember if you get a full taped seam waterproof they can sweat a lot but will keep you drier from the rain! Below are some ideas but check out the sites at the bottom of the blog to do browse

Over the winter you may want to bring a mat to the session or if we use a harder surface to train on this will protect your back and hands when doing floor and core exercise.
See a few suggestions you might want to look at:
We have UK Outdoor Fitness Hoodies; If you sign up as a monthly member we will give you one; whist stocks last
Throughout the winter we advise that you have a hat / couple of hats to wear at bootcamp. We believe it better to be prepared and take layers off; than come get cold and be put off by the colder weather. You soon warm up and is a good asset to have for before and after a session if you do not like wearing one when exercising

When I first started Bootcamp people I know used to comment, “You\’re Brave!” I\’ve found since joining 2 months ago it\’s not as scary as people make out I have began a new way of living and it\’s good to see that it\’s paying off by becoming fitter each week and seeing the lbs go the right way on the scales-downwards!! I have been to a number of sessions across available and each session has been fun and never the same as the last. All the instructors are encouraging and people within the group are positive too. It\’s good to know someone will encourage you to press that little bit further than before because they know you can do it, even when you think you can\’t
