Winter Is Here - LETS STAY FIT! (and Warm) 

So the colder months are still getting closer as winter has not really hit us yet.  But the days are past their shortest, so they are back to lengthening out again, albeit very slowly.  However, its no excuse to hide indoors and snuggle.  You can easily get warm by getting active, might take a bit more mind power to initially get up and get out into the cold and dark, but I promise, you won't regret it afterwards and later on this year when the months warm up again.  

I struggle with it some days too, as we are all human.  But exercise is proven to really help with the 'winter blues' and sets us up better to leap into spring and summer with better fitness than if you hibernate during winter.  So do yourself a favour and hang onto your current fitness with some winter fitness maintenance by continuing to attend our sessions regularly.  Want to know more about the winter blues, then read my blog post here.

Super Boot Camp Saturdays are a good way to help you with maintain this fitness during winter with the time being a little later (7:30am) and they will be at some new challenging locations around our region and not our conventional sessions either, Ie. Ropes, tyres, heavy objects, team work. 

Plus read on to find out about our up coming fitness testing week, but fear not as they double as great sessions in their own right, so come along anyway. 

Fitness (RE)-Testing Week (4th-8th July)

It is that time again... Eeeekkkk!
No doubt you have all been training consistently for the past 2 months since our testing took place at the start of May, so now its time to put that increased fitness and strength to the test.  This is nothing to be scared about, as the only comparisons that will be made, will be from your own results.  However, if you would prefer not to be tested, come along to the sessions anyway, as the tests will provide a good workout for you nonetheless and we just won't tell you, your results.  if you want to know your previous performances, then send me an email and find out

Saturday Super Boot Camp - Now 7:30am

Saturdays Super Boot Camps are off to a good start and those that have attended so far have enjoyed the changes and the challenges that the new locations have provided.  On Saturday we had a good group of 9 attack the Tamaki St Steps from bottom to the very top with some good times posted.  Then the session continued with some team activities that resulted in the winning team having the benefit of choosing their team objects for the carry to the top.   Then each team finished off with carrying approximately 50-60kgs of weight up the 380 odd stairs to the top together. 

We do hope this inspires you all to attend the Saturdays more regularly, have some fun with team based activities and adventures, while also attracting new attendees to some new challenging sessions in our region.  This coming Saturday will see Niges taking you all to a new location up the Grampians, meeting at top of Collingwood Street.  While Saturday 23rd will have Laura taking you all up the much loved Tamaki Street stairs again and the other Saturdays at Tahunanui beach, often for roaming sessions. 

So spread the word, set your own alarm and bring some friends along too.
