FOCUS THIS WEEK IS REVERSAL

  • Do not hesitate to ask to instructors about what it all means and what muscle/movement patterns you're working on.

  • 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.

Booking/Membership Info


Class Cancellation

Please ensure you cancel your booked class at least 9 hours prior to the class starting as we have plenty of people on waiting lists, particularly the 6am. We understand that this isn't always possible but a last minute cancellation may also allow someone to jump in to class and have a great session.


Waitlist

If there is a specific time you were after then jump on the waitlist and you'll be sure to secure a spot. When you're on the waitlist and a spot becomes available, a notification will be sent to your phone via the Spaces app. If you don't yet have the spaces app, follow the link at the bottom of this newsletter.


Our advice is to get in early with your booking as certain times fill up quickly.


Little tip: If you're on the waitlist, set your alarm if you're intending to do the 6am session as there if often a spot due to late cancellation.


If you have any concerns with this, please don't hesitate to reach out.

 

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
