Learn to Love Fitness | Clashmore/Kinsalebeg

Well done to everyone who finished our six week Learn to Love Fitness programme in Clashmore on Monday night.

For the final session, the women designed their own programme plan, specific to their own needs and goals, which included warm-ups, stretches, a cardiovascular and HIIT program, an upper and lower body resistance plan and a core strengthening plan. This demonstrated the vast amount of knowledge the women had soaked up over the six week programme.

Over the six weeks, participants learned the basics of flexibility, mobility, injury prevention and how to lift weights safely and effectively. Each session was delivered in a positive, supportive, fun environment, which has provided them with the knowledge, confidence and motivation to be physically active for life. By week four, participants were demonstrating their own learning by leading the warm up/ cool down and teaching each other the exercises.

Feedback was exceptional with one participant saying ‘I wouldn’t have stepped foot in a gym before, I now have the confidence to exercise and go to the gym on my own’; ‘There was no pressure, it was in a great atmosphere that pushed you in a good way, the girls were really supportive and fun, ’

Learn to Love Fitness also promotes the use of rural facilitates and enables the community to get advice and assistance from WSP on how to increase usage of the facility. From the two programmes that we have run, it is evident that this is a very successful programme to get more people active and also assist rural facilities with the promotion, everyday running and sustainability of their their facility.

Huge thanks to tutor Shauna Walsh for her exceptional delivery of this programme and Clashmore/Kinsalebeg GAA Club for the use of their gym facility.
