SUNRISE AT TROY PARK
At 6am on Wednesday, Deb had fourteen Y Striders at the session and almost all of the fourteen chose to do Deb’s specially created strength exercises for toning muscles. As the sun rose over the river and while most of you were still asleep at this cold, dark and early hour, the irrepressible Y Striders let their inner lights shine by keeping up hilarious banter throughout the workout. Kev and Pete discovered that they went to the same school and were even in the same class! Can you believe that they only just identified the connection? How long have they been training together at Y Striders??
Did you know that challenging your muscles with strength training exercises at least 2 or 3 times a week is all that is needed to help gain long-term benefits to muscles, bones and our general metabolism? Supplementing our walking, jogging and running with strengthening exercises will aid in injury prevention and help to make us stronger, faster and more efficient. You can do it too! Join us at 6am or 8am at Troy Park for an energising, early start to your day.
While the rest of you were still asleep on Wednesday, the 6am people were climbing mountains with Deb – literally! This amazing, high intensity training session had us working hard and torching the calories but it still didn’t stop us making jokes and laughing together. Deb cheerfully put us through some intensive moves, alternating between periods of maximum effort and short recovery – all quite within our capabilities.
Just because you feel unfit, are new to fitness or starting over after an injury, doesn’t mean that high-intensity interval training isn’t for you. The key to success in these fast-paced workouts lies in doing the right moves, at your own pace, listening to your body, modifying as needed and completing each movement to the best of your ability – all done under the watchful eye of one of our wonderful Trainers.
You can do it too! Join us at 6am or 8am at Troy Park – but be warned – our Fitness Trainers like to be creative and no two training sessions are ever the same.
Of course, you don’t have to do the strength exercises, you can still go walking, jogging or running – it is all about choices! Your first choice will be to set the alarm for an early start in the morning.
Brrrr! Very cold this Wednesday morning at 6am at Troy Park Attadale. Nine keen, fit and fabulous members rocked up for their weekly strength session – even though Julie SD always said she wouldn’t attend a session if it was below 5 degrees C. Well this Wednesday, was below 5 degrees C – Well done team! You make my day!!!!
