Hello Members,

What a gorgeous week of sunny weather! It is only getting better this week- check out weather zone!


Few little updates coming your way, so please read the below.


 

TIMETABLE

New Pilates timeslots - We have added a 10am Pilates session on Tuesday. Pilates in the evenings will now be 5:30pm, 6:30pm, 7:30pm. Session times will still be around 45-50 minutes. These adjustments will allow more time for the session to run smoothly with time to spare!

Please check your pilates bookings, as we cancelled previous bookings due to new times.



 

Social Saturday

Thanks to all who came along to help celebrate the 2nd Birthday of Reba Sear! Another great Saturday morning and awesome to see new faces join the run/walk for the first time.

 

REMINDERS FROM LAST WEEK


PCYC Huon Valley and RMC Join Forces


PCYC and RMC are joining forces together with support of the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to provide youth, between 14-20 years of age, a free 20 week all-access membership. This is a fantastic opportunity for youth that are finishing winter sport and looking for an activity to participate in through the summer period, an inactive adolescent who is wanting to engage within their community in a healthy and positive manner or simply a teenager who wants to exercise along side their parent or friend.


Please reach out to Bianca Jackman at Huon Valley PCYC via email - bianca.jackman@hvpcyc.org.au or drop in to the centre through the week

Don't forget to support our local sporting teams as many approach finals for 2023

STRENGTH SESSIONS


NEW FOCUS THIS WEEK IS SINGLE LIMB


  • It is single leg load this week but there could be a big focus on balance and improving single limb control for running and walking.

  • Single leg load is what we do in everyday life and is great for injury prevention (hence why we like to keep it in quite regularly).

  • It focuses on trunk control, trunk alignment, knee stability, upper body mobility and movement patterns.

  • Light- moderate resistance but focus on slow movement with great technique.

  • Challenge your stability but be mindful that upper body stability is very hard when loaded too heavy







GENERAL CLASS REMINDERS

  • 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.
