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 there body adapts to certain items of clothing. (IE: Performance wise, over heating and comfortability; Waterproof vs breathing in clothes and trainers)

Base-layers 

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 

Other ideas: 

  • Mens Trespass Mens Timo Long Sleeve Active Top Medium thickness base layer which is also good for running and wearing in classes  (Good with sweat - This is my go too for colder wether and performance) 
  • Women's Dare 2b Womens In The Zone Wicking Quick Dry Base layer
  • Women's Inov-8 Women's Base L/S Top
  • Women's / Mens Campra Thermal Base Layers from Sports Direct (Male / Female) Good Value 

Hats 

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

 

Gloves

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) 

Waterproofs and Hi-Vis 

Coming soon 

Mats 

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:
