It s been proven time and time again that if you don’t set yourself goals in life you will never move forward. The same can be said for exercise/fitness – unless there is a realistic goal to work towards it is much harder to stay motivated.
“Where the vision isn’t clear the cost is always to great!” – Michael Puffett
Thus we propose this – the Restoring Health Fitness Challenge – what is your goal?
Wayne and Beth are currently training for the Paddock Wood half marathon which is on 3rd April 2016.This particular marathon is a fast but flat route, the course takes on the roads through the hop fields and orchards of kent.
They started their training in Novemeber and have been running 3 times a week. Starting with short distances and building up to longer distances as they grew fitter and stronger also making sure to include some hill training. They have also been attending a weekly core strengthening class and found that this has made a big difference in the way they run and has helped improve their stamina. They are even running another half marathon this coming Saturday the 5th of March as part of their preparation.
The challenge has been set! What fitness goals are you setting for yourself? How are you going to achieve them? Come and speak to us and let us help you to achieve the goals you have set for yourself in a realistic timeframe and most importantly – Injury Free!
The Restoring Health team
by Nicola Darling
While most teenage boys are sitting at home playing on the Xbox or PlayStation 4, Sam Mostowfi and his elite band of friends are at the gym learning about discipline and camaraderie. He’s only 13 years old, but already Sam is representing his country at an international level and doing us proud.
Like a growing number of families, Sam’s family moved to Maidstone three years ago so that Sam could attend the prestigious Pegasus Gymnastics Club in Tovil. Even more significantly, Sam’s coach decided to make the move too, and he is now part of the coaching team at Pegasus. But their gamble of moving to Maidstone (and all of Sam’s and his coaches’ hard work) seems to be paying off.
“After a year of joining Pegasus, I joined the big squad which I never would have thought was possible. And normally to take part in an international competition you have to be 15, but I’ve been selected at 13, so I’m one of the youngest participants ever.”
Sam looks back fondly to the first gym he attended in Brighton, and remembers the coaches being fantastic, but the gym sadly lacked the equipment needed for him to really progress. He boasts about the state of the art facilities at the newly-refurbished Pegasus which include a recreation gym, squad gym, free running area, cross fit and dance studios, conference centre and café. “Where we lived in Brighton we used to walk past an old church building every day. I asked my mum what it was and she told me it was a gym. I wanted to join but I was too young and had to wait. I joined as soon as I was old enough and rose up through the ranks to join the boys squad. Now I’m at Pegasus in the GB squad.”
