We were delighted to welcome Alex from Hertfordshire County Sports Partnership during their This Girl Can campaign as part of their Year of Physical Activity. The Hertfordshire Year of Physical Activity, also known as ‘HertsYOPA18’, it is a year to focus on getting Herts moving. The year will run from 1st January – 31st December 2018 and there are four broad objectives:
1. Increase Physical Activity levels
2. Shift stubborn Inactivity levels
3. Celebrate what’s already happening
4. Encourage new programmes & events
June is very aptly This Girls Can and as Medau is recognised by the This Girl Can Campaign it seemed an ideal opportunity to demonstrate the benefits of Medau and how we help increase physical activity levels without going to the gym or jogging round the park!
I had planned a hoop class, starting with some very simple movements which once mastered were put together to different pieces of music so everyone felt stretched, worked and enjoyed a personal sense of performance and satisfaction. At the end everyone agreed that they had worked but their brains, laughing and smiling muscles as their bodies.
Alex commented on how friendly the class was. This is true of all Medau classes (and my EXTEND classes) as we do not just face the front and copy the teacher, we work with partners and we come together to work as a whole group so everyone feels included.
If you are reading this and have not yet tried a class but think you might fancy giving it a go, then don’t be shy, pop along as the first class is always free.
