Absolutely - we train whatever the weather. Our fabulous instructors adapt their session plans to suit the conditions. On the extremely rare occasion that the conditions are so bad that they are unsafe to train in, we will let you know that the session is cancelled with as much notice as possible.
Remember if it's not raining...it's not training!
Our instructors may be loud - but they certainly won't shout at you. They will motivate and encourage to get the best out of you.
There is no normal session, no two OpFit sessions are ever the same!

Every session finishes with a cool down and a well-deserved pat on the back!
