COVID Update

We thought it would be a good time to remind everyone on the RMC recommendations around COVID, close contacts and illness at our sessions.


If you are unwell with cold or flu symptoms, please conduct a rat test and don't attend classes if symptomatic. If you are asymptomatic and tested negative, then you can return to classes.


If you are a close contact, we recommend that you conduct a rat test straight away. We have encouraged individuals to wait at least 2 days, after exposure to a Covid positive case, before coming to classes. The infectious period is two days prior to developing symptoms after contact with a positive case.

If you are asymptomatic and test negative, then you can return to classes after this two-day period.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact. We are here to keep our community safe and well.

Strength Session Details




  • Our focus this week will be MULTI MOVEMENT LOADING.

  • Multi Movement exercises use different movement patterns to target the same muscle group.

  • It will challenge your body to adapt to different stimuli and keep it guessing.

  • Tips from Hannah- use moderate resistance weight if your technique is perfect, complete 8-10 repetitions maximum and be very controlled. Always discuss with the trainer where you should feel the exercise.

  • We are here to support you with your exercise so please do not hesitate yelling out for technique help.

  • Always chat to Hannah if you want to learn more about resistance exercise and its benefits.

  • All sessions are designed and developed by Hannah, if you have any feedback, please pass it on.

  • If you have any new or old injuries that you are carrying, please don't hesitate to let Hannah or Brad know so we can tailor the program to you. It is so important for you to feel supported and cared for at your Run Move Connect sessions.
