December 2017

Christmas is coming up fast and we are looking forward to the Christmas meal on December 13th. 42 Oxfordshire Fitness ladies and gents are coming along and it promises to be a fantastic evening.

My thoughts are now turned towards the Christmas walk which is turning into a bit of an ‘event not to be missed on the calendar!’ This year it is on Saturday 16th December. We are starting from the White Hart car park at Fyfield (OX13 5LW) at 9am and walking to, and then alongside, the Thames to the Maybush for coffee and cake before walking back. Don’t forget to tinsel up your poles and get those Christmas jumpers, hats and anything else Christmassy that you can find and let’s get out and have a Nordic walkingly good time with lots of chat and Christmas cheer!  Please let me know if you can make it so I can arrange enough cake!  Forgot to say this years walk is in aid of The October Club which is an Alzheimer’s Day Care Centre in Wantage. Donations gratefully received rather than payment for the walk.

Just a very quick update on this morning’s Children in Need walk – so far the total we raised is standing at £173.50!! Well done and thank you to everyone who came along and donated.

Emails have gone out for the Christmas Meal, please let me know if you haven’t received one but check your junk mail first in case it has gone into that folder.

November 2017

There will be a Nordic Walk for Children in Need on Thursday 16th November, this will be instead of the usual Thursday walk so you won’t be able to use your payment cards, instead I will be accepting donations for Children in Need. More details to follow soon.

There will be no Circuits on Thursday 16th November and no Nordic walks on Friday 17th, Saturday 18th or Monday 20th. LBT WILL be taking place on Monday 20th.

October 2017

The next technique taster on November 4th so let everyone know. Booking is essential for these.

I am looking at trialling some short 15 minute 1:1 technique lessons before some of the classes, these would focus on one aspect of an individual’s technique and instruction on how they could improve it. Sessions would cost £5. Please let me know if you would be interested in taking part.

We are running technique classes on the 11th and the 25th of November. These will be 2 hours long starting at 10am and will involve us videoing your technique and showing you where it needs adjustment along with drills and teaching to correct it and then further videoing to show your improvement. These sessions will be limited to 8 people per class and will be on a first come first served basis. We will put more dates on if demand exists. Technique classes will cost £15 for Oxfordshire Fitness members reduced to £12 for those who pay a monthly subscription.

A few dates for your diaries with more details to follow nearer the events:

The Christmas meal will be on Wednesday 13th December at 6.30pm and is going to be at The Greyhound in Besselsleigh this year. We have the whole of the conservatory to ourselves, it promises to be a great night so get the date booked in! The Christmas walk will be on Saturday 16th December starting at 9.00am so come with tinselled up poles and a festive hat and in fine voice!

Happy October everyone! 😍

We just want to say thank you to everyone who supported our two charity Christmas walks this week.
