Autumn has made it's mark, the
temperatures are dropping and the
days are getting shorter. This
is the time of year for each of us
to dig in deep to find the
motivation to keep active and
improve fitness. There is
nothing more frustrating than
realising it is spring, summer is on
it's way and you have not been
training so your fitness is no where
near where you wanted to be.
To help you cope with winter have a
very definite plan. Decide now what
you are going to do over the summer
and work out how many weeks you have
to go. Make a training plan,
this plan is not set in concrete and
can change but make one now.
Enlist others to join you in
training, plan for some fun
activities. Join in some of the
winter events and make a commitment
to come along to our training
groups.. Every week we have
training groups which are for
everyone of any fitness level, we
meet at other events and add even
more ticks to our "done that" and
"did it again", have seminars and
workshops to give you tips and
information to make your fitness
journey even more fun and more
How do you know what is going on?
- If you did the events you will get
regular monthly emails newsletters
from me from May with information
- Check this website page weekly as
I update it on Monday
ps: The details of the 2013
PhysioMed Series will be online very
soon. This year will be very
special as it is the 20th
Anniversary of this women's Series.
The dates are above and there will
be loads of fun and giveaways to do
with "20" to celebrate our 20th
If you are lacking in motivation make a commitment to yourself
to come along at any time to some of our group training. It is so much
easier to exercise and train with others, share knowledge and advice, have a laugh and just have a break from your normal routines
(and of course coffee and cake after). Our
aim for these groups is to create a supportive training environment for woman at
any fitness level. Do not stay away because you think you are not fit
enough. We all start somewhere and the culture of all our groups is to
support and encourage each other. Each group has beginners groups.
We split into groups depending on your fitness and ability.
