Luma supports Fit Brit Collective’s Bootcamp and Bend

Fit Brit Collective bootcamps (run by Wimbledon based PT Brit Williams)

shook up the Southwest London fitness scene when they arrived at the Wimbledon

Windmill this summer. Attracting everyone from the exercise beginner to the

everyday athlete, Brit’s partner and circuit based sessions combine HIIT drills

and conditioning combos to increase every aspect of fitness, with an emphasis on

excellent form and smart exercise sequencing to get the best benefit of every

movement. And after a successful bootcamp and yoga collaboration in September

this year, Brit is once again teaming up with Fulham-based yoga instructor Sophie Dear

for a special Christmas edition of their Bootcamp & Bend fusion fitness events.

When and where?

You can join Brit & Sophie from 2-4pm on Saturday 10

December at the Wimbledon Village Club.

What to expect?

You’ll kickstart your afternoon with Brit’s 45min bodyweight bootcamp,

combining plyometric drills (low-impact options available if you’re

training with injuries), full body functional exercises and core isolation for

a holistic and invigorating workout.

Sophie will then take you through a 45min candlelit yoga flow, stretching

what you’ve strengthened and grounding the non-stop festive season in a

calming, nurturing practice.

Post-workout refreshments will be provided by Ugly Drinks, and healthy

seasonal canapés will be served by Lu-Ma Café to ensure you get the fuel

you need after working up a healthy sweat.

As well as luxury goodie bags, you’ll have the opportunity to win various

wellness-focused raffle prizes by taking part in optional festive fitness


More about Brit

Brit’s passion for fitness evolved as she grew up in the Canadian countryside,

spending her childhood jumping between various sports and enjoying the

outdoor adventures on her doorstep in the Rocky Mountains. Her career in

fitness journalism was a natural outlet for her passion, but the long hours at a

desk left something to be desired.

Today Brit is lucky enough to divide her time between writing for the country’s

leading lifestyle titles – including Women’s Health and Elle magazines – and

training her personal clients across Southwest London. She is a Level 3 Personal

Trainer, with additional qualifications in Ante and Post Natal Exercise, Indoor

Cycling and TRX. After training, Brit’s favourite way to refuel is with homemade

energy balls – dates, almonds, nut butter, coconut oil, cacao, hemp protein and

maca powder all blended in a food processor and smushed into little balls of


More about Sophie

Sophie discovered her passion for yoga when she decided to give up her job just

over a year ago. She was working all hours as an Assistant Director on shows

such as Spooks and Mr Selfridge, and after eight years her body and mind were

completely exhausted. Yoga gave Sophie a much-needed sense of balance in life

and helped her feel fit and healthy again. It not only made her feel incredible in

terms of strength, flexibility and balance, it also gave her space to quiet her mind.

Having left the TV world behind, Sophie is a yoga teacher, food and fitness

blogger and health and happiness warrior.

Sophie teaches dynamic vinyasa flow

at studios in Southwest London as well as for private clients.

Her favourite yoga pose is crow pose, because it was once her greatest weakness and now serves as

a reminder of how far she has come and what you can achieve with practice and

determination. Of course, those yoga poses are tough work, so to refuel she’ll

tuck happily into banana and almond butter – something she admits to be a bit of

an addiction!

Bootcamp & Bend earlybird tickets are available for £20 until Friday 25

November. Tickets will then be available for £25.
