Hello Members New and Old,
We have had a very exciting week this week and what a lovely way to finish our week at Willie Smiths.
Little appreciation post for our instructors and the amazing classes you are taking. B and Annie, you are a lovely addition to our team and we are so excited for the future with you both.
Few little updates below for you below for the upcoming months, please see below.
No changes to our timetable this week.
Run Move Connect will be having a short break over the Christmas period from December 26th to January 1st. We will be providing you with home workouts to complete through this period.
Classes availability from January 2nd to January 8th will be slightly reduced depending on demand of class sizes. We will update you on this closer to the time.
We understand that our families love to get away with their families and our instructors need a little break after an amazing 6 months of RMC.
Social catch up (welcome Annie Cordwell!)
Thanks to all who came to join us Friday evening at Willie Smiths. It was great to catch up with you all and to officially congratulate and welcome Annie Cordwell to the team. Annie has been working hard to complete her cert 3 in fitness over the past 3-4 months and has shown great passion, maturity and love in the short time she's spent with RMC. Hannah has been working closely with Annie to mentor her through the start of her career in the fitness industry.
Annie is a born and raised Huon Valley local currently completing her studies in Fitness and Personal Training whilst also serving you all delicious coffee and treats at Reba Sear Cafe. Having predominantly worked in administration, Annie left her office job to pursue her love of health and fitness. Annie has always had a passion for all things health and fitness having been heavily involved in competitive netball from a young age, and in more recent years being involved in the Huonville Lions women’s football team. Annie’s love for competitive sport has been put on hold for the past year whilst coming back from an injury which is when she rediscovered her love for strength training.
Annie believes that strength training is an empowering form of exercise that can leave you feeling like you can achieve anything after a good session. In her spare time, Annie loves to spend time with her partner Will, friends and family and her little dog Duke. Annie believes in creating an empowering and comfortable environment where everyone feels empowered and strong, inside and outside of the gym and can’t wait to start seeing you all in the RMC studio.

Running/Walking news and events
POINT TO PINNACLE THIS WEEK!
Registration and event information can be found here. Remember to register under the team "Run Move Connect".
Strength Session Details
Strength focus this week will be RECOVERY. RECOVERY will be focussing on bodyweight and not using the weights for Monday and then slowly introducing light weights on Wednesday. It is a great way for our members to reduce their load and allow their bodies to have a rest.
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.
Please take SWEAT TOWELS and drink bottles with you throughout the session. We have new RMC sweat towels, don't hesitate to purchase one if you struggling to find one.
Social Saturday recap
Thanks to all that came along for another cracking Saturday morning 5km run/walk.
We will have our 5k time trial on this coming week (19th Nov) for those wanting to test themselves and have their time recorded.
RMC will have some members running the Point to Pinnacle event, those members will be expected to take it easy on Saturday :)
Youth Engagement Program
We are so proud of our Youth Engagement RMC members. As some of you are coming to the end of your 6-week program, we are happy to announce our brand new "youth membership" option.

Brad and Hannah are very passionate about getting the whole community moving and this includes our Huon Valley youth.

This program is ongoing currently and would like to continue this for the youth in our community.
