No matter what the weather, you can always find Lara and Karen, founders of BlitzFitness leading their group fitness sessions on Palewell Common. This much beloved Sheen business was founded 9 years ago, when Lara & Karen met in the playground at East Sheen Primary and they’re proud to say they’ve never cancelled a class due to the weather.
Both Lara and Karen had swapped City careers to do something they were passionate about – health and fitness. Having known each other for only a couple of weeks, they embarked on holding five weeks of group fitness sessions on Palewell Common and BlitzFitness was born. As the community of Blitzers grew, new classes and new locations were added, and next year this award winning outdoor fitness business will be 10 years old!
Blitz sessions focus on what Lara & Karen see as the 4 key elements of fitness; cardiovascular training, strength & conditioning, core stability and flexibility. Each session will incorporate these elements and they make sure vary our training from tag rugby to tabata & HIIT training to keep everyone challenged and inspired. Two sessions a week are lower intensity to assist those who are new to fitness or recovering from injury. They also operate 2 trips a year to Kefalonia where they put Blitz on the beach and add in some paddleboarding, sailing, swimming and sunset pilates.
You can find Lara, Karen and the Blitzers on every weekday morning except Wednesdays on Palewell Common. Wednesday mornings they run their fitness class at the Barn Elms playing fields and Monday evenings at the University of Westminster sports ground.
