Clapton is one of our favourite areas in Hackney, with hidden outdoor gems for your workouts. It’s got everything, from marshes to nature reserves to hills ( a rare thing in Hackney!). If you’re looking for a personal trainer in Clapton you’ve come to the right place.
You’ll see our founder and head personal trainer, Daigo, regularly training clients in North and South Millfields and Springfield Parks(and most likely grabbing a coffee on Chatsworth Road market on a Saturday). Other outdoor training locations include: Clapton Square (perfect for early morning workouts); Walthamstow marshes and the Middlesex filter beds nature reserve.
One of our most pleasant training locations in Upper Clapton is Springfield Park, which extends down the hill east to the Lea river. As well as a hill ( a rarity in Hackney!) the park’s facilities include 5 tennis courts and a cricket pitch, while to the north, across Spring Hill , there are rugby fields (home of the Hackney RUFC) and soccer pitches. Feeling active outside your training sessions? Head across the Lea, to Springfield Marina where you’ll find the Lea Rowing Club and kayaks for rent.
