What’s been happening?
We’ve talked about it a lot lately, but it’s worth another mention here because it’s a BIG deal. We had 18 members that took on the World’s Largest Fun Run, City2Surf, with everyone from experienced runners like Geoff McIntyre and Jill Files to debutants likes Erin Allen, Linda Kleemann, Jess Toland, Naomi Connelly, Claire Osborne and Amber Turnbull.
It was an inspiring day with everyone over the moon about their achievements. Congrats to those Rookies who proved to themselves what they are capable of and special mention to Geoff McIntyre and Jill Files who qualified for the Red Group with sub 70 minute times.
We kicked off another Fitchicks timeslot yesterday with the start of our 4pm Tuesday/Thursday group. A couple of our 7pm girls have switched to this earlier time and we also have a few rookies who at the time of writing this are currently in intensive care with delayed onset muscle soreness! All our fitchicks groups have started a new program this week which was likely to shock the bodies. However these new rookies were always on a hiding to nothing. The good news though, these girls are going to improve fast and develop a thirst for good hard strength and conditioning when they see and feel the changes to their bodies.
Jill created a great new STRENGTH program this week which changes the focus from lifting for longer (ie 20 sec to 30 sec to 40 sec) to lifting heavier. She’s taken a leaf out of the Fitchicks regime of progressively lifting a little bit more weight each week. So over the next three weeks the timer will stay for 20 secs work with 10 sec rest but we encourage everyone to try and add just an extra 1.25kg plate to each end of the barbell to test yourself.
Our top 10 scoring clients are as follows:
1. Deni Murray
2. Claire Osborne
3. Susan Hawley
4. Tammy Langlois
5. Lisa Morris
6. Rylee Cole
7. Erin Allen

Keep up the fantastic effort. Your consistency will bring you results.
Running Road Trip
Due to the Running Road Trip and us being understaffed this weekend there will be none of the usual Saturday antics at Surf Beach. Sorry!
