A NEW outdoor fitness area is now open at the Abbey Stadium to provide high octane fitness sessions.

AREA7 opened its doors earlier this month and offers four new high intensity interval training (HIIT) classes for both beginners and elite athletes.

Fitness fans can take part in AREA7 Gladiators each Monday at 7.15pm; AREA7 functional fitness at 5.30pm on Thursdays followed by AREA7 bootcamp at 7pm and AREA7 extreme functional fitness on Fridays at 9.15am.

Jo Dudley from Abbey Stadium said: “We’re delighted to offer these new classes for more exhilarating workouts here at Abbey Stadium. People are telling us that they are really enjoying the open air of AREA7, which of course is covered to shelter us from the rain but has open sides – what’s not to like?”

The facility also includes rowers, ski ergs, concept bikes, sled track, slam balls, plyometric boxes, battle ropes, and Olympic bars for members and non-members alike.
