Circuit training We have re-started the Monday evening circuit training sessions in the Village Hall on Monday evenings between 6.30 and 7.30pm, but as a kind of do it yourself cooperative arrangement without an official trainer.
Let me know if you would like to join us - it involves stretching, strength building and aerobic exercises and as you can go at your own pace you do not have to be at any particular standard to join in.
Note the circuit training will not take place when the Village Hall is required for Parish Council meetings (see Calendar)
We will need to assemble a few bits of kit so if you have a yoga mat, some weights, skipping ropes, a gym ball, stop watch or a whistle that would also be helpful but don't worry if you haven't, we will work something out!
Hiring the hall is £6 an hour, so the cost will be nominal.
Participation is at your own risk!
