Hiker, climber, eater and adventurer!
A few Goodgym members came together to do some early morning yoga to start the day in the right way.
Making the practice of yoga a habit each morning allows the body to get into the habit of switching off the sympathetic ‘fight or flight’ stress response, and instead able to finally tap into the healing benefits of the parasympathetic nervous system – increasing the health of both body and mind immensely.
8 Goodgymmers congregated tonight under the Wolf Moon for a frankly surreal session, tending to the Library Gardens in Wood Green.
Don't Leaf Me This Way (Without Tending To My Moss)
After a last minute task cancellation, we visited the Library Gardens last night as both Goodgymmers and locals seemed to fall under the lycanthropic influence of the Wolf Moon.
Gramps's knee is still as useful as a chocolate teapot at the moment so Sarah Moore, 40, stepped in to save the day and lead the run to task. Hero.
Once on site, we got on with the business at hand - which included doing a litter pick and planting over 300 crocuses, while navigating a rowdy crowd of locals.
Our Goodgymmers didn't hesitate to crack on with their task with aplomb and a bit of mossy banter (you really had to be there!) and we called it quits once the werewolves were fully at the door, chucking plants around.
Goodgym Barnet gathered at the Phoenix Cinema to run the short distance to Martin primary school East Finchley. We met John who provided the tools and instructions to spread woodchip and bark over the forest school floor using spades , wheelbarrows and rakes. We proceeded to Whittle down an enormous pile of wood chip. (Kirsten brought her dog who provided the bark ). To my astonishment we managed to get it completed well before Time. Please give Alex & Dorota A cheer on there first visit to Barnet Goodgym. thanks for coming hope to see you again we are back at the Phoenix on Tuesday to help them out.
Welcome to GoodGym Barnet! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects in our area.
Helping the caretaker lay woodchip on the path for the children to access the woods. It’s a short run or walk followed by a drink at the Phoenix café.
GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is often possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.
We're visiting Traid on Wood Green for their quarterly clear out. This is always a fun task and you shoul definitely join us!
