Free Fit Trail sessions on offer

Published: Friday, 26th August 2016

Oxford residents can get the most out of their outdoor Fit Trail with new free instructor-led sessions. The sessions complement the £315,000 investment made by Oxford City Council for five Fit Trails.

Local instructor Nick Adcock from Regimental Fitness will be helping participants try out the full range of equipment at Rose Hill Recreation Ground, Cowley Marsh Park, Hollow Way Recreation Ground and across the three sites that make up the Leys Trail. 

Sessions will take place between 11am and 12noon at Blackbird Leys Park on the 29 August, 12 and 26 September, Rose Hill on 31 August and 14 and 28 September, Hollow Way on 5 and 19 September and Cowley Marsh on 7 and 21 September, then every two weeks at all sites.

Nick will be on hand to answer any questions, offer guidance on the correct way to use the equipment and to help users build up their confidence and a workout that suits them.

Oxford City Council invested £315,000 in five Fit Trails at Cowley Marsh, Hollow Way Recreation Ground, Rose Hill Recreation Ground, South Park and across Gillians Park, Frys Hill and Blackbird Leys. A sixth trail at Sunnymead Park was funded by the Friends of Cutteslowe and Sunnymead Park and the local Community Association.

The Fit Trails are free to use and suitable for all ages and abilities.

Cllr Linda Smith, Oxford City Council’s Board Member for Leisure, Parks and Sport said “This is a great opportunity for anyone who is unsure of how to use the Fit Trails to get some free onsite advice and guidance. The Fit Trails are free to use and can be used by anyone at times that suit them.”
