I'm torn between Sheffield and Barnsley :)
Group Fitness Activities
The Suit Works is a fantastic charity that helps provide smartwear and coaching to help unemployed people succeed at job interviews. They are moving premises and need help moving all the boxes of clothes. The new premises is up three flights of stairs and they need a team of volunteers to help form a human chain. Strength session included!
They are asking for volunteers from 10:30, for as long as you are available, but equally if you can only do an hour or 2 at any point during the day, it would still be helpful.
We'll meet at the Sheffield Futures building (Star House) in the car park at the back. This is an inside task, so you may prefer to wear a mask.
On another beautiful sunny Sheffield afternoon we met outside The Showroom Cinema and got ready for the off. Our new friend Mohammed jumped in for the group photo before we headed off toward Ship Shape with James as our trusty back marker.
On arrival, unfortunately there wasn't anyone around to greet us and provide us with tools so we had to think on our feet. We did what we could with what we had and got litter picking and weeding what we were certain were weeds! Despite trying Regather down the road to see if there was anything we could do for them quickly it wasn't a goer so we did what we could at Ship Shape, had some excellent photos at the front door and then headed to the U-Mix center for an extended fitness session.
This weeks fitness session involved some paired work with one partner on the the planters doing step up's, step up's squat downs or box jumps, whilst the others did a lap of the area.
Next up we headed down to the climbing frame and again did a couple of paired rounds of dead arm hangs, knee lifts or leg lifts whilst partners did their choice of press ups, using the concrete steps to increase/decrease intensity.
Following a fantastic fitness session we headed home for stretching and refreshments at the Showroom. Hopefully we will be back at Ship Shape again in the future.
Litter picking of the areas surrounding Park Hill.
