Hello Members New and Old,
We hope that you have had a lovely weekend and looking forward to daylight savings!!!
Make sure you get to be early and change those clocks.
Our timetable will be changed as of Monday 3rd of October- TOMORROW!!!
Our goal at Run Move Connect is to provide of training program that is sustainable and allows all members to manage their training load appropriately. This new timetable ensures that there are adequate rest periods between strength sessions ensuring your body recovers well and you are prepared for the next scheduled session. We also believe balancing resistance and cardiovascular exercise is important for your overall health and wellbeing.
If you are unsure about the Run/Walk sessions, then please don't hesitate to contact Brad or come and try. It is fantastic for beginners and a brilliant way to get moving safely. All walk/running sessions, like the strength sessions, can be modified to meet your fitness level and physical capacity.
For further information on instructors, please refer to Spaces Booking app.
See below for the timetable.
We have our waitlist up and running!
If there is a specific time you were after then jump on the waitlist and you'll be sure to secure a spot. Just a tip- make sure you keep an eye on your emails as you will get a notification if you have been added to the class.
Our advice is to get in early with your booking as certain times fill up quickly.

Youth Engagement Program
We have been so pleased with the uptake
of the Youth Engagement Program. If you know of someone in our community that this would benefit both from the perspective of being apart of an engaging and support community plus developing healthy exercising habits, please get in contact with Hannah or Brad.
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 10 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"
If you know of any young member of our community that this may interest, please do not hesitate to email Brad or Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org
