What is Field Fit?

Whether you want to complete your first race, go for gold as an elite, or you just love to train for fitness, OCR is incredible training regime – in one session you condition most muscles in the body and take your body through all planes of motion, functionally and naturally, as our bodies were once designed to do. I think there is something very fun and rewarding, almost childlike, to run, climb, crawl and get muddy and wet!

I started Field Fit because I want to bring a style of training to Suffolk which I truly believe is one that I have found to be the best and most rewarding. One that has led me to my level of athleticism, making the most of our incredible countryside and, most of all, having fun!

Why choose Field Fit?

Ultimately, Field Fit embraces a way of getting fit and having loads of fun at the same time, making the most of the great outdoors and training in a way that will motivate you every time because it’s so varied. The best thing about bootcamp’s and OCR is that it is accessible to everyone of all abilities and ages, and it gives adults permission to channel their inner child!

People training at Field Fit can look forward to a whole host of new obstacles and equipment appearing over the remainder of 2018 – I am building all the obstacles myself, which does take time

Meet The Team

Jack Carpenter

I’m Jack Carpenter, a Personal Trainer, Coach and OCR (Obstacle Course Racing) athlete. I’ve been competing at an elite level within OCR, mainly Spartan Races, over the last two years and I’m currently ranked 4th in the UK.

I believe that OCR and outdoor exercise in general, is fantastic. OCR is fairly new to the UK, with participation growing every year and more people taking part in the fun races. There are also many high level athletes from a variety of different sports starting to focus on OCR.

In a nutshell, OCR’s are running races, typically trail (off road) with varying distances ranging from 3 up to 20+ miles, or multiple laps for time, along the way you have obstacles, walls, rigs, lifts, carries using the whole body to challenge yourself – and probably some water and mud!

I left school at 16 and started an apprenticeship as a joiner, at this point in my life I was playing water polo for a local team, and hitting the gym once a week to keep up my general fitness.

I found a love for Triathlon in 2012, and competed as a GB age grouper athlete at sprint and Olympic distance and went on to become a level 2 triathlon coach for my local club, I’d found the fitness bug and wanted to continue increasing my fitness and abilities, so I set myself a target of an Ironman, which I completed in 2015.

I moved to Felixstowe in 2016 and decided to have a career change and become a personal trainer. I had taken part in a Tough Mudder with a group of friends which although fun, I didn’t feel challenged me. A friend had suggested doing a Spartan Race, so in June 2016 I took on a Super (8+ miles 25 obstacles) and a Sprint (3+ miles 20 obstacles) in the same weekend, and I surprised myself with a 2nd place finished in an open category! From here, you could say I was hooked…I signed up for the Beast distance (13+ miles 30 obstacles) in Windsor in the elite category - which broke me, but I loved it so much I decided to dedicate 2017 to training for Spartan and other OCR races.

2017 saw me growing my personal training business and racing all over the country, I was lucky enough to take home a few podium finishes and end the season within the top ten in the country.

Some of the highlights from 2018 were competing in Morzine, France in July at the Spartan European Championships, which was a fantastic experience, I also finished the UK & Ireland Spartan series 4th in the country. Finally, I completed the Spartan SGX qualification, which is a Spartan Race specific coaching badge, there are about 5 of these coaches in the UK.

Field Fit HIIT

Fridays

Who is it for?

No matter if your goal is fat loss, muscle gain, or athletic performance, high-intensity interval training can help you nail it. For all levels and abilities, but do expect a tough workout.

What to expect?

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) the essential framework of high-intensity interval training is always the same: Brief, all-out work periods, separated by rest periods that you wish were just a little longer. The work-to-rest ratio can vary from 1:1 (for example, 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off) to 1:4 or more, and the rounds can be just a few or 15 or more. But no matter how long you rest, the key is that you bring everything you've got to your intervals.
