SETTING YOUR FITNESS GOALS ~WITH SPORTSTREK COACHING ~


So, the nights have become darker and a little colder and our thoughts are how to avoid staying snug on the sofa and starting a new exercise routine.


Of course, once started, how do we stay on course with our exercise goals?


First of all, prepare yourself for the Changes that you want to take place. If this is losing weight or getting fitter, be clear in your mind why you want these Changes. Prepare by


making lifestyle adjustments first. Extra walking, less alcohol and early to bed are all a good start.


Next, set a goal, keeping it realistic. Don’t think of losing stones, think more about losing pounds. Don’t think about running a half marathon when it’s years since you ran down the road!


FREE AND PERSONAL TRAINING FOR ALL MEMBERS


Finally, once the goal is achieved, give yourself a reward and celebrate. A glass of wine, or a night out! This will keep you extrinsically motivated to set and tackle the next goal!


At our Changes gym at Embleton, we offer a free week’s trial, where we set the initial goal together during your gentle gym introductions. On joining (if it is for you – no hard sell from us) we then embark on the next stages. The prepare for Changes stage is the first two weeks of their programme, where they will train very easily to build up a fitness base to later challenge their body with more intensity.


COCKERMOUTH SPEAKERS CLUB


The Club season is well underway, with a recent meeting given over to two speeches by experienced speakers. There was an Ice Breaker by new member Katharine Pindar, who talked about wood, she had brought a set of napkin rings made from different hardwoods. Following this, Phil Wilson gave a mini- researched speech about dirigibles, their design and flying capabilities in the 1930s.


Phil gave some fascinating facts like, the Zeppelin travelled at 80mph and in its life, flew two and a half million miles. In the first part of the 1900s, four dirigibles were regularly flying around Europe. A strange fact was that they had a smoking room, which seems crazy to be under a large balloon filled with hydrogen.


The second speech of the evening, was by Peter Hodgson, who also gave a mini-researched speech. Peter chose the work of Architect Sir Clive Gilbert Scott who designed Liverpool Cathedral, Waterloo Bridge and The Guildhall but also the red Telephone Kiosk in 1926, revising it in 1936. Peter told of the Foundries in Scotland who were famous for producing these cast iron masterpieces by the thousands. One of the red boxes was installed in the cathedral as a mark of respect. Some were famous in films like Local Hero and Cilla Black’s life story, when Brian Epstein rang her at her local phone box.


Frances Burditt ran the Topics session, where members must think on their feet and come up with a three- minute speech. Frances used unusual words from one page of the dictionary and members had three clues as to the meaning.


Although the speeches were of a more informative nature for this meeting, the topics session gave members much fun and laughter along the way.

Next is fitness and health checks, where the results help determine your initial goal setting. This could be to lose some belly inches, or to improve at a fitness challenge in the gym. We then complete your personal gym programme.


EACH VISIT CAN BE WITH OUR TRAINED AND QUALIFIED STAFF, AS A ONE-TO-ONE APPOINTMENT, FOR NO EXTRA CHARGE AND CONTINUES WHILE YOU REMAIN A MEMBER.


FREE AND PERSONAL TRAINING


The rewards stage comes later, usually six weeks later, after the repeat fitness tests, where your first progressions should be recorded.


We hope to see anyone who is interested in making some gentle Changes, at our gym at Embleton very soon! Kind Regards, John McNamee, Sportstrek Coaching


CUMBRIAN WOMAN WINS AWARD


Local group members Clare Brown and Dianne Moyes, along with Central Lancashire FoE members and Jamie Peters


The Co-ordinator of the local Friends of the Earth (FoE) group, Dr. Ruth Balogh, has been named Earthmover 2017 for Exceptional Campaigning by the national organisation.


Well-known locally for her campaigning on the safe management of nuclear waste, she was also recognised for her work in promoting a Sustainable Cumbria that does not depend on new nuclear power stations.


The award also celebrated her contribution to the Cumbria Minerals and Waste Local Plan, for which FoE input has strengthened its climate change, anti-fracking and nuclear waste sections. FoE was the only NGO to see this process through, from its beginning to the two-week visit of the Inspector to


Cumbria to scrutinise the plan, for which the Inspector congratulated the group.


Ruth was presented with the award by FoE staff member Jamie Peters at the Blackpool fracking site, where she took part in an ongoing protest that takes place every Monday, along with other members of the Cumbrian FoE and Green Party groups.


In accepting the award, she said: “No-one ever does work of this sort alone and I want to thank our local group, FoE staff, my colleagues in other anti-nuclear groups and my partner Steve Balogh for all the support, discussion and expertise they’ve given me over the years.”


The group can be contacted by emailing foe- wcumbria@hotmail.co.uk
