To help you get the most from your Outfit sessions please have a look at the FAQ section below. If you can't find the answer to your question please use the form on the contact page to ask us.
Do sessions continue in bad weather?
Yes - the sessions continue all year round, and in all weather conditions. You need to make sure you are dressed for the weather i.e. if hot, wear light, breathable clothes and bring plenty of water, if cold/snowy wrap up in layers and wear gloves, if raining wear layers under a waterproof jacket.
What and when should I eat before the sessions?
If you have time to eat a meal beforehand, try to eat at least 2 hours before the session starts. Do not over eat otherwise you may feel bloated and lethargic. If not we suggest having regular snacks between your lunch and the session. Snack on things like fruit, nuts, oatcakes, yoghurt - a banana just before the session will give you enough energy and micro-nutrients. If you have time to have a more substantial snack, we would suggest something like peanut butter on wholemeal toast.
What and when should I eat after the session?
You should aim to eat within 2 hours of the session, and include lean protein, fats and carbohydrates in your meal. This will ensure that your body has the nutrients it needs to repair itself after exercise.
What should I wear?
You should wear comfortable training clothes, things you don't mind getting muddy if the weather is wet. You should always dress for the weather, so wrap up in layers if it is cold, wear breathable clothes for hot weather (with sun cream if sunny) and wear waterproofs over lots of warm layers in the snow.
Do I need water?
You should bring a bottle of water to the session as it is important to keep hydrated before, during and after exercise. We schedule plenty of water breaks into the session so you will have plenty of opportunities to take water on board.
I'm not very fit at the moment - will I be able to join in?
Our sessions are designed in such a way that all abilities and levels of fitness can join in. Because most of our 'circuits' are structured by time rather than reps, you can work as hard or as easy as you like.
I'm very fit - how will OutFit help me improve?
Our sessions follow a structured progressive program that tilts the focus of training every 3 months. Therefore you will be able to improve in different areas throughout the year. Also, our sessions are mainly structured by time rather than reps so you can push yourself as hard as you like. We use a variety of training methods such as body weight, kettlebells, strength pods and grappling ropes. We also have a bi-monthly fitness assessment in which you will be assessed in 8 areas of fitness. We run the assessments every 3 months and you will be able to closely monitor your progress.
Where I should put my keys/wallet/inhaler?
We have a box that you can put your valuables into for the session. As we tend to stay in the same area, the box will be monitored at all times.
Can I bring a friend?
Of course, bringing a friend along to a session is free. If your friend then becomes an OutFit member, we have an incentive system in place which rewards you for inviting people to join. Incentives include free personal training, nutritional therapy, vouchers, equipment and clothing.
How can i train on my own outside of the sessions to improve more?
Depending on the frequency of the OutFit sessions that you attend, we generally recommend that members focus on aerobic or flexibility training outside of OutFit sessions. Once we understand your goals, you'll receive specific guidance based upon your ability and goals.
Do I get tied into a contract?
There are different membership options available allowing each member to select the most convenient. There are no membership contracts, all monthly subscriptions work on a Direct Debit monthly payment.
How old do you have to be?
16 years of age is the minimum age for OutFit membership.
Is there any age limit?
No, we have members of all ages and abilities. If you feel young enough to join in then you're young enough to be a member.
What equipment do you use?
OutFit sessions offer as much variety as possible whilst including the most current, effective and cutting edge training methods available. You can expect to use kettlebells, ropes, strength pods, power bags, boxing pads/gloves and much more.
How long do the sessions last?
All OutFit sessions last for approximately one hour including a full warm up and cool down.
Is there a good time for new members to join?
Anytime! Our calendar is designed carefully to cater for new members year round. Whilst we do have 4 quarters to the calendar year, you'll always receive the attention you deserve when getting started to make your journey as enjoyable and effective as possible.
What if I have an injury?
You are unlikely to get injured during a session, but if you do our staff are fully trained to cope with the situation. If you have an injury acquired elsewhere, please get in touch prior to starting the session as we can then advise you of what to do.
