The week that gave us SNOW

Sun 24 Jan
Report written by Bethan Greenaway

Goodgymers really hit the ground running (pun very much intended) this week. Running, cycling, walking, AJ-Active-ing and even desk-stretching were completed.

Well done if you have tried a new workout, tried a new route or just got out of the front door. We faced many treacherous conditions - frost, floods and beautiful, beautiful snow but us Goodgymers are made of stern stuff.

Lots of lovely kilometres have been added to our tally in the January challenge and we have continued to support Mark with his #MovewithMayorMark campaign.

The next training session has a distinctly disco feel to it, so grab your dancing shoes and join me next week.

January Fitness Ideas #2

Sun 24 Jan 18:00 pm
., ., .
Witness the fitness

This week I am using our training session to support an Oxford-based Pilates-teacher-personal-trainer-and -all-round-wonderful-person AJ Active. In non-Covid times AJ works all over Oxford delivering a variety of classes, now she has a brilliant youtube channel with loads of work out videos including step, Pilates, Yoga and even a bit of dance!

Here are a couple of suggesions for workouts for this week:

Body Conditioning

A half an hour session which you can do without any equipment. I think it kind of has a bit of ballet vibes!

Pilates

This video is called Relax, unwind & stretch, something we could all do with during a pandemic!

Run/walk/cycle

And a local running/walking/cycling route for you to explore. This week it comes from Ben and is a lovely loop around Old Marston.

Remember that your KMs all count toward the Goodgym January Challenge as long as you track them on Strava and connect Strava to your GoodGym profile.

If you post about your exercise sessions on social media please consider tagging them with #MovewithMayorMark to support Mark Lygo's Lord Mayor campaign.

Please send me your selfies for the report and any fitness ideas you have for future training sessions. You can share via DM to our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter accounts.

Enjoy!
