National Fitness Day! The ladies at Potters Bar Medau class had a great afternoon stretching and working with gymnastic ribbons. It isn't easy making them do what you want, but it is great fun trying.
My goodness me, was this really 7 years ago?
I was privileged to produce an item for the CCPR (now the Sport and Recreation Alliance) Festival of Movement and Dance at the Royal Albert Hall. I had 56 spaces for the EXTEND team and the only criteria was that the members had to be able to walk down a staircase without holding on they could get off the floor safely. With just 25 rehearsal hours including a session on marching from a Drill Sergeant from the army, we did ourselves and EXTEND proud
It is National Fitness Day and across the country people are being encouraged to try new activities to get fit and active.

After a late summer break I am getting ready for a new term. This Wednesday is National Fitness day and we will be exploring ribbons!
Ribbons work your arms - as well as your brain- but you need a fair amount of core strength and coordination to get the ribbon to move and work as you want it to.
It should be fun!
