The verdict:

I wasn’t expecting to find myself enjoying thwacking a tyre with a sledgehammer on an early Sunday morning in my local park quite as much as I actually did.

It’s all down to The Amazons Bootcamp founder, and former European kick-boxing champion, Ana Legin. Oozing enthusiasm and offering constant streams of warm encouragement, she makes a one-hour circuit session feel like a party in the park with friends.
