****Please note this is a working updating blog so only in draft stage - Not finished, edited or proof checked. I am mildly dyslexic so some of the below may not make sense yet :)
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 their body adapts to certain items of clothing. (IE: Performance wise, over heating and comfortability; Waterproof vs breathing in clothes and trainers)
Hats with lights ideas and deals we have found
Head Torches ideas
We are now encouraging you to keep your own keys/ valuables on yourself when training to avoid the potential spread of covid.
Below are a few suggestions you could like at:
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
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)
Waterproof and windproof jackets are generally a personal choice! Some people like long sleeve and some prefer a Gillet style with no sleeves! A good lightweight waterproof will be good in the winter month. Remember if you get a full taped seam waterproof they can sweat a lot but will keep you drier from the rain! Below are some ideas but check out the sites at the bottom of the blog to do browse

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:
We have UK Outdoor Fitness Hoodies; If you sign up as a monthly member we will give you one; whist stocks last
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

I've been a member of UK outdoor fitness for around 10 years and love it. It is a great community, helps me push myself harder and the laughs we have keeps me young! It is great for all ages and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes being outdoors

I joined Paul's UK outdoor fitness class approximately 6 years ago. I had previously struggled with a yoyo weight on the scales and poor mental health. Fast forward to now I am in the best physical and mental shape I have ever been in with a huge thanks to Paul and the team. They take the time to learn your strengths and work on your weaknesses. They are all willing to go the extra mile to reach out to help and motivate. I can thoroughly recommend every instructor and session as they are well thought out and fly by
