Watching the Commonwealth Games Cycle Road Race

Sun 7 Aug

The Commonwealth Games cycle road race is centred around our beautiful town of Warwick, so it seems silly not to get in on the action!

Some of us plan to head to a part of the route out of town near Hatton Park (exact location to be confirmed) to enjoy the spectacle, so feel free to join us!

The event is scheduled from 8am-5pm but watch this space for confirmed timings nearer the date.

For more info, see the Commonwealth Games website.

Litter pick along the Coventry Canal Paths

Tue 27 Sep 18:15 pm
Coventry Boys and Girls Club, White Friars St, Coventry, CV1 2DS
Join us to do good in Coventry and get fit

Welcome to GoodGym Coventry! 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, community organisations and projects in our area.

The Task:

We will litter pick along the paths of the canal. Please bring a pair of gloves with you. We will stay in small groups so no-one is left alone on the canal.

The Run/walk:

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.

Where to meet

Coventry Boys and Girls Club in Whitefriars Street - there is free on-street parking right outside but if you are able to we would encourage you to walk, run or cycle to the meeting point. There is cycle parking nearby.

I’m spinning around, move out of my way!

Tue 26 Jul
Report written by Lilian

On a sunny summer evening, members, and honorary members, met for a fun, yet fiercely competitive game of rounders. Rounders is a serious business, after all...

After a quick briefing and establishment of some vague rules, two teams were formed. One team, innovatively named "Reds" were pitted against the equally ingeniously names "Others". First Reds fielded with precision whilst Others showed off their exemplary batting skills. Roles were then reversed, with each team member batting twice. After a quick calculation of scores; it became clear a second round would be needed as both teams were closely matched.

Endurance would be key in the second round of rounders. Luckily, goodgym have plenty of this. Once again, the teams batted and fielded with flair and grit. Each player representing their team with superb sportsmanship and honed their skills as the game progressed.

Before very long, the scores were tallied and we retired to the shade of the trees for some well deserved refreshments and catch up with our wider goodgym community.

Final score: Others: 16.5 Reds; 15

Well played all. Same time next year?

Workout to chill out

Mon 18 Jul
Report written by Katherine Mills

5 Goodgymers found their zen during an outdoor Pilates class this evening.

After finding a suitably shady spot underneath the trees and having a catch up on what everyone had been doing recently including sharing tips on keeping cool, we completed a session of exercises focused on flexibility, ending with a few minutes of relaxation.

It was lovely to lie on our mats and look up at the beautiful blue sky and tree canopies overhead. A curious squirrel came to see what we were up to as well but thankfully kept his distance - perhaps we were lying on his nut hiding spot!

Pilates in the Park

Mon 18 Jul 18:50 pm
War Memorial Park , Coventry, CV3 6PT
Join us for some relaxing flexibility work in beautiful green surroundings

Given the warm weather, we thought it would be nice to have a relaxing evening Pilates session in the shade of the trees of the War Memorial Park. This session will focus on flexibility and relaxation.

Please bring a drink, a small towel to act as a head pillow and a yoga/exercise mat if you have one. If you don't have a mat please let me know as I have a few extras that I can bring with me.

Please arrive at 6:50pm ready for a 7pm start. Meet by the main War Memorial and we'll walk to a nearby shady spot. No Pilates experience necessary!

Coventry social - game of rounders

Tue 26 Jul 18:15 pm
Spencer Park, Coventry, CV5 6NP
Catch up with friends and get some exercise into the bargain!

Rather than having a group run this week we thought it would be fun to have a social before everyone heads off on their holidays for the summer. What better way to get some friendly competition going than a game of rounders!

Meet at the entrance to Spencer Park opposite the end of Dalton road at the back of King Henry's school (https://w3w.co/fumes.rocket.dare) at 6:15pm - friends and family welcome.
