20/03/2023 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!



Hello to members new and old,


We had a great end to our week at the Social Saturday 5km Time Trial. So good to see some great progressions with big PB's and other great results.


Check below for some updates with our timetable and a new running coach announcement! Looking forward to another big week ahead with RMC!

 

New run coach alert!

RMC would love to introduce our new Running coach, Alex Norris! Most of our runners would have met Alex either at a run session or Social Saturday. Alex has many years experience as a personal trainer and is looking to now translate that talent into a specific running coach. Alex has a wealth of experience as a runner and will look to share lessons through her running journey with you all!

 

Membership Price Adjustment

Our aim at Run Move Connect is to maintain membership affordability and we are very proud to offer fantastic services to our members without having a big financial impact.

Due to an increase in overheads and additional classes being added to our timetable, we will be having a blanket $5 and $20 increase on weekly and monthly memberships respectively, excluding Youth memberships. 10-pack passes will be increased by $20 per purchase.

This membership price change will take effect and align with the updated Terms and Conditions on Monday the 3rd of April.


Please do not hesitate to contact, via email, if you have concerns around this.

 

Run Move Connect Terms and Conditions


With the increase in membership numbers comes an increase in administration and management of member's subscriptions. We have been working in the background to develop Terms and Conditions to maintain transparency amongst our members and avoid conflicting information with regards to membership cancellation, expectations of members and booking policies.


If you would like to view our recently updated terms and conditions please click here.

 

Youth Engagement Program


With school/team sport starting up throughout the valley, is it a great opportunity to get your children involved in structured strength exercise to learn about their body, load management and for injury prevention.

Brad and Hannah are very passionate about getting the whole community moving and this includes our Huon Valley youth. Run Move Connect are proud to announce a Youth Engagement program which provides youths in our community a 6-week all-inclusive pass to RMC sessions. This program is tailored for 10-18 year olds who are interested in getting active within our community.


"This program will provide these young people with an opportunity to better understand the benefits of exercise and fitness training on their overall health and wellbeing. The project will be aimed at young people who are not currently engaged with a community group that promotes a healthy lifestyle and will promote the benefits of being part of such"


At the conclusion of this 6-week program a "youth membership" option is available. Priced at $15 a week, we hope to see our youth engagement graduates continue to run and get strong within our community.


If you know of any young member of our community that this may interest, please do not hesitate to email Brad or Hannah at hello@runmoveconnect.com.au

The Ross Running Festival is a unique event which runs across the iconic Ross Bridge and around the outskirts of the historic township of Ross, finishing along the main street to the claps and cheers of the locals. With a relatively flat course and relaxed atmosphere, the Ross Running Festival is a perfect event for those taking on a marathon or half marathon for the first time, with runners receiving plenty of support on each lap of the 10.5km course. If a shorter event is what you prefer, there’s a 5km & 10km events available, and for those wanting to really soak up the atmosphere and beauty of the town, there’s a 5km walk option. For the younger runners there’s the Ross Runner’s 2km Kids Race with the proceeds donated to the Just Like Jack organisation. To Enter please click HERE.

Strength/Recovery and Cardio Session Details

FOCUS THIS WEEK IS MULTI-MOVEMENT

  • 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.

  • This technique will also assist with increasing mobility and function.

  • 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.

  • Make the movement definite and controlled.

GENERAL CLASS REMINDERS

  • Please bring your own mat to recovery 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.

  • Always chat to our instructors 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 our instructors 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.
