Week beginning 4 July, stand on one leg and Friday night walks

For our Friday evening walks we are currently exploring around White Coppice.These walks are proving very enjoyable and a great  way to end the week. This week we walked to Anglezarke Reservoir.

Stand on One Leg – Why?
Recently we saw headlines saying if you can ‘stand on one leg you will live longer.’ This is quite a sweeping statement. Here Dr Michael Mosley explains in more detail Just One Thing – with Michael Mosley – Stand On One Leg – BBC Sounds with the help of Dawn Skelton an exercise physiologist. I trained with her organisation Later Life Training which is why whenever I can I add balance practice to your classes!

Friday evening summer walks – open to all
Our Friday evening summer walks are open to non-Nordic Walkers too now. We do walk at reasonable pace with some hill climbs on certain walks.

Zumbathons in August
I will be taking part in two Zumbathons in early August. One is to raise funds for the MS Society is in Penwortham and the other for the East Lancashire Hospice is in Houghton. I will give you more details nearer the time.

Starter Circuits has begun again Fridays at 1.15pm at Prospect House
Many people had asked for Starter Circuits to come back. This class is on Fridays at 1.15pm. It is a 45 minute class working on strength, balance and cardio-vascular fitness for people who want to start getting fit again after a break from exercise.
