PARKFIT SESSIONS – meet at Pittville Pump Rooms, GL50 4LA apart from Wed Eve session.
FITBALL SESSIONS – take place at Chapel Spa, North Place www.chapelspa.co.uk
So, let’s feel great at those Christmas parties. I know that when we hit December, everyone will start to fall off the fitness wagon a little bit, so lets keep going now and make as many session as we can.
In this block, I am only going to run a session if I have 10 people per session for the 6 weeks. I completely understand that you may not be able to make all the sessions, but just let me know your movements! If you miss a session, you are welcome to attend another Fitball or another Parkfit session to make up for missed sessions within the 6 week block.
Wednesday Evening Parkfit has over 20 people who have shown interested in, but not everyone can attend each week. If we do not have enough people for this session who can attend on a weekly basis, then we will pause this session and re-start after Christmas. This session is for ALL levels of fitness. Dan Thomas takes the session, there is not too much running, lots of plyometrics, strength work, partner work, core conditioning – it is a great session and so much more fun than circuits. Let me know if interested.
