28/11/2022 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!

Hello Members New and Old,

Happy Sunday everyone and what a stellar day to finish our weekend. It is always lovely to see new and old faces continue to enjoy themselves in our classes and we look forward to the weeks leading up to Christmas (not that we all want to hear how far Christmas is away!!!).

Few little updates below for you below for the upcoming weeks, please see below.



Congratulations to special member Sophie Duggan and partner, Andrew Moody on the safe arrival of baby boy, Rory. What a gorgeous little man to join our RMC clan. We are also very happy for Auntie, Caitlin Duggan, we know how excited you were for this!!!


Meet New Instructor Nichola

We are so excited to introduce Nichola Carr as our newest RMC instructor. Nichola is an uplifting, motivating and encouraging person, who is another beautiful addition to our team.

Nichola has recently arrived in Tasmania from the UK and she's finding her way around the stunning scenery in the Huon Valley by getting out hiking at every opportunity with her husband and two dogs. She is a qualified personal trainer, holds a certificate in nutrition and her passion is helping people improve their wellness through great food and movement. She discovered the importance of strength training when she hit her forties and has never looked back!

Her background is in operations management and when she's not training out walking in the bush, she can be found helping small business with their bookkeeping, HR and general day to day admin. Nichola is looking forward to getting more involved in the local community and looks forward to meeting you all at the Saturday Socials!

Nichola will be shadowing Hannah in our strength classes over this week and will have her first official shift on Monday the 5th of December. Give her a big RMC welcome.

Strength Session Details

  • Strength focus this week will be STRENGTH. STRENGTH loading is going to be fantastic opportunity to see how strong you are and see how far you have come with your strength training. Technique is still vital so please be sure to have a focus on this before you choose the heavy weight.

  • Tips from Hannah- use heavy resistance weight if your technique is perfect, complete 6-8 repetitions maximum and be very controlled. Always discuss with the trainer where you should feel the exercise.
