Social Saturday

Thanks to all who attended another beautiful Saturday morning held at Reba Sear. Makes a huge difference when the weather behaves and we get to sit outside!

Our next time trial is this week coming up! To celebrate AFL grandfinal day we thought it would be great to do a theme footy colours day! Wear you're favourite footy team colours and test yourself over 5km!

Coach Brad will be away this weekend so if anyone can help out with timing/photography this weekend that would be awesome! Message Brad directly on 0410035601 if you are happy to help out :)


PCYC Huon Valley and RMC Join Forces

PCYC and RMC are joining forces together with support of the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to provide youth, between 14-20 years of age, a free 20 week all-access membership. This is a fantastic opportunity for youth that are finishing winter sport and looking for an activity to participate in through the summer period, an inactive adolescent who is wanting to engage within their community in a healthy and positive manner or simply a teenager who wants to exercise along side their parent or friend.

Please reach out to Bianca Jackman at Huon Valley PCYC via email - or drop in to the centre through the week

We are very excited to announce that Hannah Squires (Exercise Physiologist) and Annie Cordwell (Personal Trainer) will be taking on individual sessions in September.

More information on specific session details will be provided in the coming weeks but please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any burning questions.

Watch this space!

Brad Kitto is taking individual running coaching already for those who have specific running goals or targets. He is always up for a chat if you have questions on this form of individual training.

A fantastic initiative has become an annual event to support the mental health of the Huon Valley youth.

Hilltop Hike 2023 happens on Saturday, October 14th, starting at 10am at the Huon Valley PCYC. If you would like to join team RMC to walk or run for a big reason, please click HERE.


DOVER FUNRUN - Boasting one of the most scenic fun run routes, the Dover Fun Run takes runners along the foreshore of Port Esperance, with stunning views of the bay and the iconic Adamsons Peak.

This running event is a fundraiser! All profits will go the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the Royal Hobart Hospital. You can also donate to PICU during the registration or on the day.

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



  • The focus is on very slow and control movement patterns, particularly on the stretching out of the muscle

  • You should feel the stretch in your muscles and we encourage and emphasise the slowness of that phase of the exercise (for example- straight leg deadlift- very slow on the lowering down- feel the stretch through their hamstrings)

  • Eccentric exercises allow the muscle to tear to build stronger and bigger muscles.

  • This is fantastic way to get stronger faster

  • As it is a slow movement, ensure they maintain great trunk control and technique throughout

  • You may feel sorer after these sessions which is very normal due to the type of training it is.


  • 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.
