Our Parks: Merton’s newest free exercise class comes to Mitcham Fair Green from this Saturday.

Merton’s latest Borough of Sport announcement will see FREE exercise classes take place on Fair Green in Mitcham from this Saturday.

Following on from successful sporting initiatives in swimming and cycling, Our Parks UK ‘bootcamp for beginners’ class is specially designed for people new or returning to exercise. It gives attendees a full body workout without having to push yourself too hard.

Founded in 2014 by fitness coach Born Barikor to harness the legacy of the London Olympics, Our Parks works to ensure that easy, barrier free access to quality exercise is available to everyone and unites communities.

Councillor Caroline Cooper Marbiah, cabinet member Sport, said: “Getting out in the fresh air and having a gentle work out for free sounds like a great way to kick start your weekend. Our Parks is another way we’re helping Merton residents to make the most of their Borough of Sport”

The sixty-minute class will run from 10 to 11am each Saturday, with weekday sessions set to start later in the year. Attendees just need to bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. Children under 16 are very welcome but need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The meeting point is Fair Green opposite Mitcham Market. To reserve your FREE space click on the following link – https://ourparks.org.uk/borough/beginners-bootcamp-96242
