08/01 Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!

Updated: Jan 11

Hello to all of our RMC Members,

We have loved to see you all return after, what was a restful week of festivities and fun. We have all enjoyed getting back in to a routine and being around this amazing community.

We have been thinking about what we want 2024 to look like for our members and we believe the most important things are:

  1. Finding a sustainable exercise routine that works for you, your family and your lifestyle

  2. Creating an environment that supports your growth, your goals and can be adapted and managed as we enter varying times of lives and possible health changes- e.g pregnancy, injury or etc.

Wanting to learn about goal setting?

SMART Goals is a fantastic starting point

SMART goals give clarity around your goal-setting and provides the motivation and focus you need to be successful. Ensure you write down your goals that are clear, attainable and meaningful.

S- Specific - What will you achieve? What will you do?

M- Measurable - What data will you use to decide whether you've met the goal?

A- Achievable - Are you sure you can do this? Do you have the skills and the right resources?

R- Relevant - Does the goal align with you?

T- Timeframe - What is your deadline for accomplishing the goal?

If you need support with this goal setting, please reach out to Annie or Hannah for an individual session. They can sit down and support you set these goals and provide you with guidance on how to achieve this in supportive way.

Running Events News

Cadbury Marathon Festival recap!

Huge CONGRATULATIONS to all of our RMC members who participated in the Cadbury marathon festival. We had a number of runners across the 5km, 10km and half marathon distances. Great to see so many awesome results which came from staying disciplined and continuing to train throughout the festive season in preparation for todays event!

Special shoutout to Xanthe Pastoor for making her debut in the half marathon. Averaging 5:38/km over the half mara is a massive achievement and is a true testament to her consistency in training and willingness to put herself outside her comfort zone!

Night of 5's!

This Saturday afternoon/evening is the night of 5's event held at the domain athletic track. For those keen to run a 5km on the track in a graded race against people in similar abilities, come out and give it a go! Great opportunity to run a PB and to try something new for the first time. Entry link is below in the table.

Run The Bridge!

Run the Bridge is only 6 weeks away! One of Hobarts premier running events, providing options of a 5km or 10km distance to participate in, both events travel over the Tasman bridge!

RMC Studio Details- Strength/Cardio/Recovery/ Mat Pilates

This is what makes our community so beautiful- seeing families exercise together and create healthy habits around movement


Strength Focus

  • Heavy load with very basic movement patterns

  • If technique is good then challenge how heavy the weight is.

  • This is a fantastic bench mark for members to see how far they have come

  • Empower the member and allow them to believe in themselves

  • You many need to spot someone and if unsure how to do that, then let me know


  • Please take SWEAT TOWELS and drink bottles with you throughout the session.

  • Please advise the instructor if you have any new or old injuries that they should be aware of or will impact your training. We will support you with your exercise and provide alternative exercises.

  • Please be prompt to classes as we aim to start demonstration on time.

Class Cancelations/minimum class bookings

For all RMC Studio classes with 0-2 members booked into a class, RMC will notify participants 3 hours prior to the session starting if they can make another session. RMC will then decide if the class will be cancelled and removed from the booking system.

To assist with this, we ask that if you plan to do a session, please aim to book in as soon as you possibly can. We understand that sometimes it can be hard to book in too far in advance due to family, work etc.

If you can't make a session please make sure that you cancel your booking as soon as you are aware you can not attend. This is essential for all sessions. We are aware sometimes this is not possible especially for parents with young families and appreciate everyone's understanding.

We get amazing feedback from our members and it continues to assist us meeting the needs of our members and providing the best service. We thought it is time to make this an 'official' form and we welcome your feedback.
