Now that Easter is over and the evenings are getting lighter, it’s time to think about exercising in the evening.
I am really delighted to be working with Bedford Borough Council under the ‘She Wants to, She Can Do’ initiative. On Sunday 28th April 2019 you will find me at Bedford Park right next door to Robinson’s Gym and I’ll be holding 4 x 20 minute taster sessions.
Every participant will be asked to sign a PAR-Q form (The Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire). This is a simple two-page form which takes about 2-3 minutes to complete. This basically provides me with enough information to determine if you’re ready to exercise or if you should check with your doctor first before becoming more physically active. Really nothing to worry about.
Each 20 minute session will have a warm-up and a cool-down and the sessions will look like this:
11:00 to 11:20 – Playing games to keep fit – a fun session where you won’t even notice you’re working hard.
11:30 to 11:50 – Endurance circuit for an all body work-out.
12:00 to 12:20 – Working out in a pair to strengthen the core, upper and lower body.
12:30 to 12:50 – Circuit using kit for an all body work-out.
The sessions will take place just opposite the tennis courts, so please arrive a few minutes early so that we can get the paperwork sorted.
Trust me the sessions will be fun and you will be working hard without even realising it. Then once 4th July hits, I will be holding one hour sessions at Priory Park for six weeks. Just show up when you can (there are no contracts) and pay £4.
If you can’t wait until July, then don’t forget the Saturday sessions at Harrold-Odell Country Park at 09:30. We meet outside the Dragonfly café. More details can be found here.
Look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
Happy exercising in the great outdoors.
