Pegasus News: Beginners sessions launch with a massive turnout
A huge Pegasus welcome to all the lovely new people that came along to our inaugural beginners' session at 10:15 on Saturday 3 January 2015.
Well over 20 people turned up, in the rain, at the Bury Road Car Park in Chingford Plain.
This session, designed for people new to exercise, returning to exercise or looking for an introduction to our regular bootcamp classes, saw our newbies taken for a gentle warm-up jog along the footpath, stopping to do stretches along the way.
Then Barry led everyone, mountain goat-like, through the trees, weaving in and out and jumping over small logs, followed by some star jumps and lunges to get the blood pumping. Then some more gentley-paced jogging and then back for more reps under cover of the trees.
The session ended with another run out along the footpath, with everyone getting into pairs for a bit of sprinting, before the final push back to the car park.
There were lots of smiles all round! Mission accomplished!
