First responder families, join us weekly for a 45 minute workout, starting on Wednesday 1st September. These bodyweight exercises can help build cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength and coordination – no equipment is required. Led by an experienced personal trainer who is positive, enthusiastic and passionate, he helps his clients achieve their goals every day. These sessions are suitable for all fitness abilities.
Classes will run on Wednesday 1, 8, 15, and 22 September. You’re welcome to 1,2,3 or all 4 classes! (Select dates on the registration form for the sessions you would like to attend). All you need is some space, computer connection, water bottle, a mat (if you have one) and please wear appropriate clothing for a fitness activity.
This is a great way to strengthen family/kinship group bonds, as well as to broaden your social network through connection with other first responder families. Connection is an important part of the path to mental fitness, and can take a protective role in maintaining wellbeing through increased feelings of happiness, security, belonging and self-worth. Being active helps to build resilience and wellbeing, and plays a major role in maintaining mental fitness. It helps us to cope with stress, gives us more energy and confidence, as well as improving mood and quality of sleep. Challenging our minds with new skills, approaches, and information can improve our knowledge and thinking skills, increasing confidence, sense of purpose, and ability to cope with stress.
This activity is free for first responders (eligibility here). This yoga class is suitable for all ages and ability levels.
This is a small group activity with limited numbers. Note registration is not confirmed until Fortem sends a confirmation email.
