MS Walk, Run, Roll
This year seems to be flying by.
2020 was a year that we will never forget, and for many it was a time to slow down, while for others it was incredibly stressful. What I have found within the community is that many of us are struggling to "go back to normal", it's not that we are busier than we were in 2019, it's that we are just not managing with all of our commitments. Between after school activities, extra work load, catching up with friends, and let's not forget parents guilt, where a lot of us spent so much of our time with our families, we are not quite willing to give that up, and sadly, the first thing that drops off our priority list of "things to do" is our OWN health and well being.
I'm not bringing this up to make anyone feel guilty, I just want to let you know that you are not alone. A lot of people are struggling to fit everything in.
My advise to you is to be kind to yourself;
Change your mind set, you don't have to workout 5 + sessions a week. Think quality rather than quantity. 2 or 3 sessions of moving well is all you need.
Don't exercise to get thin or lose weight, exercise for your mental health and well being. Exercise to sleep better to move better and the feel better.
Don't focus of the scales, focus on gaining strength, building muscle, improving fitness, moving without pain, and putting your socks on standing up without falling over!
Yes, there is more to life than training, but training adds so much more to your life; it brings energy and vitality, and for me, I'm a WAAAYYYY nicer person when I exercise!
Reminder to get your Merchandise order in by the end of this week. From hoodies to long sleeve training tops and singlets, we have you covered with plenty of layers for winter training.

Young Athletes is a program designed for kids who play any type of sports. We build a young athlete’s physical foundation, improve their coordination and self-esteem. Our speed and strength training methods are serious, but all within a fun and friendly environment to ensure the young athlete is engaged and motivated.
What we aim to do during the Young Athletes training sessions is not only improve a child's strength, fitness and coordination, we assess their movement, identify where the weaknesses are and teach them how to move correctly with mobility and strength programming.
We also test and assess, using methods such as the vertical jump test, beep test, blaze pod agility star, so we monitor improvements in explosive power, change of direction and reaction timing.
The Key areas we focus on are:
Linear Speed: straight-ahead acceleration and running techniques.
Multi-Directional Speed: Agility and ability to decelerate and move in any direction quickly.
Upper and Lower Body Strength: Strength training exercises for muscle development and injury prevention.
The Young Athletes Casual sessions are on Mondays and Wednesdays 4:30pm for 40 minutes
