With the winter weather truly upon us and the bed looking more appealing than the bike we thought we’d try and give you some ideas for alternative training to help get 2015 off to a great start. 🙂
First up is club member David Fletcher at velo-smith.com who is running a weekly group turbo session.
Sessions are every Monday starting at 6 p.m. and include a coached turbo session followed by a circuit of core work and stretching. A great all round work-out for all levels of ability and plenty of friendly YOGi faces to, err, encourage you on!
Sessions cost £6 include hydration and recovery drinks if wanted and are held in the studio next to the velo-smith.com / RSF workshop at Millfields in Stonehouse.
To book a place call David on 07557 940983 or check out the Facebook page firstname.lastname@example.org. No turbo? – No problem! The club has a limited number of turbo trainers available that club members can use to take advantage of these sessions, just request at the time of booking.
Alternatively try something off the bike but complimentary and check out the Pilates sessions run by YOGi Jo Turpin. There are a number of sessions through the week at different times and venues around the city:
Monday – 9.30am-10.30am at St Anne’s Church Hall, Glenholt Rd, Glenholt (50+ only)
Tuesday – 6.45pm-7.45pm at Trinity United Reformed Church, Torr Lane, Hartley (Mixed Ability)
Wednesday – 7-8pm at Laira Green Primary School, Bramley Rd, Plymouth (Mixed Ability)
Classes run on a 6-week course basis, but you can join in at any time. It’s £5 for your first session as a ‘taster’, then if you wish to continue you can either pay the remainder of the course in a block at £5 per session, or a £6 drop-in fee.
As we’re still in the post Christmas silly season sessions are fairly full but if you fancy it drop Jo a quick email: email@example.com and she’ll let you know if there are places available.
If you know of any active YOGi members offering training opportunities please let us know! 🙂
