Outdoor Fitness Classes


If you wish to use the parks or open spaces in Arun for personal training or to run group fitness sessions you must be licensed. We licence operators to ensure that:

  • The parks are protected
  • Access to and use of public open space is preserved for all visitors
  • Park visitors can enjoy and engage in fitness training in a variety of outdoor environments
  • Fitness operators hold appropriate qualifications (based on industry best practice), and are fully insured and hold liability for participant's safety. 

Before completing our outdoor activities form you may wish to contact our Events Department on 01903 737920 or events@arun.gov.uk to discuss suitable locations for your activities. For further information please see the Leisure Operator Licence Guidance
