Class Cancelations

A friendly reminder for all members about class cancelations. Could all RMC members please make sure you cancel your booking for sessions as soon as you are aware you can not attend. This is essential for busy sessions and more so for the 6am sessions as it is extremely difficult for people on the waitlist to check their phones early in the morning. We are very aware sometimes this is not possible especially for parents with young families and appreciate everyone's understanding.

Dover funrun recap!

It was a magic morning the proved to be one of our most successful events to date. Some impressive individual results will be posted below but I think I can speak on behalf of the members present on the morning that what stood out most about RMC was the supportive, encouraging and positive nature of our group. We love to see PB's and debuts for ourselves but we are just as excited for a team members experience as much as our own. This is what it means to be part of a team, to share the all the up's and even the downs of our journey with a great bunch of people by your side.

Some individual results that stood out from Coach Kitto and Coach Norris

Shaun Wolfe - 1st in the Men's 5km

Darcy Callaghan - 2nd in the boys Junior 5km

Metasebia Duggan - 3rd in the Women's 5km

Jenna Driessen - Debut in first ever funrun

Lex Molony - Debut in first ever funrun

Roxy Burdon - Debut in first ever funrun

Sharron Nugent - Debut in the 10km (53:40 if you don't mind)

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


Look at Pam, Nic and Rebecca- Climbing mount Fansipan, highest peak in Vietnam.

We love to see how our strength classes have supported these powerful ladies in activities they like to do outside of Run Move Connect. Recently they helped with a house build in Ta Phin, trench digging and carrying 50kg bags of cement. You inspire us all in more ways than one.


  • Reversal is a fantastic way to teach you about opposing muscle groups and opposing movement patterns. Again, this is fantastic for mobility and function and reducing overload. The whole body will be challenged throughout this session however you should walk away feeling well balanced.

  • You will learn about pushing versus pulling, hinging verse squatting, adductor and abductors, extension versus flexion, anterior versus posterior trunk loading. Chat to your friendly instructors about this.

  • Moderate resistance is recommended for this loading.


  • 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.
