Specialists in Outdoor Functional Fitness


Outdoor functional training is at the core of our business so at any given session you can expect to use:

  • Kettlebells 
  • Battleropes
  • Slamballs
  • Powerbags
  • TRX Suspension
  • Body weight only Metafit HIIT
  • Pad and glove work
  • Resistance bands                                                                                                                          
  • Functional movements are movements based on real-world situational biomechanics. For example,  getting up from a chair, carrying shopping, running and walking etc. They usually involve multi-planar, multi-joint movements which place demand on the body's core musculature and innervation.

What better way to spend a long weekend in the UK than heading off to our luxury fitness and yoga retreat for some well-deserved TLC? You’ll completely disconnect from the madness of modern life, indulge in some fresh air and green space, deepen your fitness knowledge and yoga practice or even kick-start a brand new regime. Give yourself that much needed injection of quality nutrition, fitness, yoga, rest and relaxation and feel like you’ve had a brand new lease of life


Our retreats are all at the same fabulous, exclusive and meticulously handcrafted Cotswold barn location, complete with outdoor wood fired hot-tub, nestled in around 200 acres of breathtaking landscape. 

The fitness element will be conducted by Jez and will include functional outdoor workouts, runs, walks, fitness education, competitions and lots of fun and laughs along the way!

The Yoga element will be conducted by the amazing world class yoga teacher and instructor, Grace Farmer. 

Her expertise and Yoga CV is phenomenal and I'm absolutely thrilled that she is going to be working with us. 'Grace Fully Movement and Yoga' will take you through a combination of Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga. In addition to that she’ll also be guiding you through meditation, mindfulness, myofascial release techniques and breath work. 

Grace is currently working in Berlin after teaching new yoga instructors at the Kranti Yoga School in Goa where she has taught for many years. Grace also teaches and runs retreats at The Yoga Bubble in Southern Spain


Delicious and nutritious!

Mel, my super talented partner and best buddy is also part of the JA Fitness team. Mel will be making sure you never go hungry by creating and crafting deliciously healthy vegetarian and non-vegetarian feasts. 

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, refreshments and snacks will be provided everyday. The food will of course compliment the exercise and will be high quality, super-fresh, seasonal and locally sourced. 

Mel trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine before working in restaurants in both London and France. She then went on to join the teaching team at Leith’s before the children took over all of her time!
