Outdoor Activities

One of the great advantages of the HD3 Fitness Centre is that we are surrounded by open spaces and playing fields. And within a few hundred metres the countryside starts. So we offer immediate opportunities for putting into practice all that indoor training you’ve been doing.


Regular events include the running club (run by Simon) and the Nordic Walking group (who organise weekly trips in the immediate locality as well as special events in scenically interesting locations.) On-site, outdoor summer boot-camps and other events take place in and around the ‘green space’ surrounding the Fitness Centre.










Look out also for details of Summer Camps with fitness activities and events for all.

These take in a combination of grassy sprints along the edges of some of the sports pitches connected by a series of delightful twisty woodland sections.


In 2015, we entered a team of The Yorkshire Warrior, a wet, muddy obstacle race held near Harrogate. Great fun: check out the photos in our Photo Gallery. We’ve now raised a team for the 2016 event in April – but there’s always room for more! You don’t have to be a ‘super athlete’, just be willing to ‘have a go’. We’d be delighted to have you in the HD3 team.

HD3 Fitness Centre takes bookings for the MUGA (multi-use games area), an outdoor hard-surface area for 5-a-side teams and similar. Ask at reception for what’s coming up in the near future.
