Frequently asked questions

No, this class is for all abilities.
It would be useful to bring a yoga mat. Be prepared to share it. Also, bring some water.
Please leave all valuables at home.
Wear comfortable sports clothes and supportive shoes. Keep an eye on the weather forecast, if it looks like rain wear something to keep you dry and gloves are useful on colder days and also for exercises where you have your hands on the ground. On colder days have a warm layer to put on before and after the session.
It is an outdoors class so we continue anyway. Only in severe weather will the class be cancelled.
The Vondelpark class is held by the kinderbadje (paddling pool) near the Kattenlaan entrance. If the area is being used then we will have to move once we have met up.

No, I much prefer to encourage and motivate you in a fun way than shout and intimidate.

Forget your misconceptions about boot camp and give this a try – Lorna has a calm, sensible and reassuring attitude to exercise ensuring that you never feel intimidated in a macho environment. Over the weeks my programme has been adapted as my fitness improves to ensure that I ache just a little bit after each class! And that feels really good!Michelle
If you are looking for an alternative to your usual gym session, then I would definitely recommend Lorna’s bootcamp! If like me you have spent the whole week planning your work it’s so nice to just turn up and take part in a well thought out and planned outdoor training session. I find it very motivating and also fun training with other people and as there is a good mix of ability and ages I can feel comfortable training at my own pace but also find that I push myself when my competitiveness streak kicks in.Chris
