From the M48, take the Chepstow exit and follow signs to Chepstow Racecourse. Stay on the A466, through the traffic lights, past the turning to the Community Hospital. Take the next right onto Kingsmark Lane and then the second right onto St Kingsmark Avenue. As this road starts to head downhill, there is a layby on the right hand side (just past the right-hand turning into Stuart Avenue), with the park next to it (NB: the park is quite hard to see from this angle as it is down in a dip).

NOTE – there is limited parking in the layby, but all the surrounding streets have free parking. Please park courteously, so as not to upset local residents.

“I’ve never worked myself hard enough in the gym, so wanted to go to a class instead. This isn’t just any old class, in an hour, you are worked hard and feel so much better afterwards. Tessa makes you feel very welcome and encourages you to work to your maximum potential without hurting yourself, or like you have to keep up with everyone else. Everyone works to their personal best. Tessa makes sure every week is different, but still challenging, which is one thing that I have never found before. I’ll never get bored! We always have a good laugh as well as working hard and that’s what makes me come back each session and actually look forward to it!” Sarah Pidsley

“My overall fitness has improved and I have far more energy.  I am attributing this solely to Tessa’s classes.” Jo Bridel, Health Care Manager

“I have been attending Tessa’s outdoor fitness classes come rain or shine. Tessa is a great motivator (with the right level of carrot and stick approach)! Each week the session is different and gives a fantastic workout – my fitness has improved and certainly helps with my running. I am always surprised when the hour is up, and continue the day with a smile.”Sue Heskith-Jones, HR Manager

The sessions are great fun, lots of different circuit training type exercises with a group of like-minded crazy individuals who love the great outdoors and like working up a sweat and getting wet and muddy! Fabulous if you are not a Gym-Bunny! Sarah Phillips, Alvington
