|Meet and Train|
Here is what it is all about!
Targets: The objective of the Meet & Train group is to provide an opportunity for women of all ages and levels of fitness to get together to exercise with like minded people under the guidance of a qualified coach. The Meet & Train Groups are specifically aimed at women to come run or walk with other women in a non competitive basis, promoting the message that physical activity is not only good for you but that it also can be fun
Main Components of Meet & Train
Ÿ Fun with health benefits
Ÿ Non competitive
Ÿ A social occasion
The warm-up takes 10 to 15 minutes. This section of the training incorporates the whole group exercising together regardless of ability or fitness. This is a very gentle form of exercise -walking/jogging, and mobilising all the joints while moving. The group then form a circle where a series of stretches are preformed. This promotes a sense of comradery and a sense of belonging.
The Core section:
This is 30 minutes of continuous movement. The ladies are split into groups depending on their initial levels of fitness. Group 1 is for the walkers. Group 2 is for walkers that wish to progress to jogging and group 3 is for those with greater levels of fitness that wish to train at a higher intensity.
Warm Down: Again the group all meet together for the final 10 minutes. This is again very gentle form of exercise. The group walk together for 5 minutes and finish with some gentle stretching. Again this is done as a group to re-enforce the sense of belonging to a group.
