27/02/2023 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!

Hello to members new and old,

Bye bye Summer, hello Autumn!

It was great catching up with everyone at our Social Event today, the rain didn't stop us from having fun and enjoying each other's company.

Lots happening in the Run Move Connect corner with the start of our Recovery Sessions on Friday afternoon and cardiovascular sessions happening in the coming weeks. We are very excited for this to start and look forward to hearing your feedback.

Run The Bridge is happening this coming Sunday, we have over 25 RMC members participating in the 5k/10k events! Those wanting to support RMC members in the event, the finish line will be in front of PW1, Castray Esplanade.

Please see below for a few updates about new feedback forms, RMC terms and conditions, membership price increases and reminder about Youth Memberships.



This week we had the pleasure to interview Dylan Lovell and Bianca Polley.

His advice to someone thinking about starting RMC- "Come along and have a go". Very inspiring, thanks for the chat Dyl!


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.

48-hour Grace Period

We have now introduced a 48 hour grace period for members that have insufficient funds in their nominated account when weekly/monthly payments are due. This will allow members to retain their current membership rather than an automatic membership cancelation due to insufficient funds. We understand how frustrating it is when memberships cancel due to insufficient funds, with no prior notice.

Membership Cancellation Policy

As you may be aware, we have had a 4-week cancellation policy from the beginning however due to the way the website works with allowing user cancellation, we have not been able to enforce this effectively. With the increase in membership numbers we require the ability to manage subscriptions to ensure we have adequate class sessions, instructor availabilities and continue to provide brilliant services for our members. RMC have now created a cancelation form members can access through your members portal once logged in.

Class Cancellation

With specific class times getting popular and in high demand, we need to reiterate the importance of cancelling your spot before an hour of the class starting. This will allow for members on waiting lists to jump in to the class and be ready to go. Those who are on waiting lists, please ensure you look at your emails to secure your spot when someone does cancel.

Please do not hesitate to contact if have any concerns regarding this.


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



The Recovery Session will start this Friday 3rd on March with Nichola with the Cardiovascular Sessions to start in the coming month. These times are not locked in yet and will be reviewed based on your feedback.

Please book via our booking portal

Strength Session Details


  • Overload will be challenging the muscle group with muscular endurance

  • Still focus on technique as individuals will fatigue in the muscle quite quickly

  • Moderate resistance recommended- between 12-15 repetitions should be achieved.

  • You will work the same muscle groups over two stations


  • 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.

  • 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.
