Fitness: Reebok Regiment at Wood Wharf
The arrival of the Olympics means Wood Wharf is currently the Monte Carlo of Canary Wharf with the rich and famous docking their superyachts before heading to London 2012 parties.
Come Tuesday, however, and there will be a slightly more strained feel to the site.
Then it will see ex-Royal Marine Chris Geran takes some willing participants of the Reebok Regiment out to the newly laid lawns.
The boot camp-style workout is free to those taking part - even for non-members of Reebok Sports Club in Canada Square - for a one-month trial.
It gives the Welsh-born personal trainer, who spent seven years with the UK's elite amphibious force, a chance to show fitness fans what they can do.
"It won't be anything like the marines can be physically," he said. "And we don't do shouting in the Marines, it's more motivation. We're not the army, which stands for 'Ain't Ready for the Marines Yet'.
"We'll be doing power bag drills and calisthenics, such as bending, stretching and jumping."
After serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Chris then went into the world of private security in some of the world's most dangerous areas.
"I was a mountain leader in the Marines, which is a tough level, involving all sorts of activities, from rock climbing to parachuting and abseiling," he said.
"It was physically demanding and when I first left I decided to go for a complete change and became a plumber.
"It wasn't for me though. It lasted just six months and I started doing security in places like Zimbabwe where people would need to change cars seven times to go to the shops.
"I then moved to Libya to do boot camps for the ex-pat community there, before the troubles started and my fiancee and I decided to get out."
Chris joined Reebok just a few weeks ago and was keen to start the boot camp, which is being backed by Canary Wharf Group.
The workout is probably the first time such activity has been held on the Canary Wharf estate and has come about due to the area's management creating a park at Wood Wharf, which is listed in the long-term future for redevelopment.
The plans for Wood Wharf include nearly five million sq ft of office space, 1,500 homes, a high street and a hotel.
Planning permission was granted in 2008, however, no dates have yet been given on when work will begin on the site.
Boats from all over the world arrived in the area last week including Octopus, owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
Group exercise manager at Reebok Tanya Camilleri said: "A lot of people do prefer training outdoors especially in the sunny weather and this kind of activity is always well received by our members so I can't see why it wouldn't work."
The sessions have been planned for Tuesdays throughout August between 12.30pm and 1.15pm and Thursdays between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
