OUR LEADERS AND INSTRUCTORS

"The Human Body is a Fragile Thing"
"Variety is the Spice of Life".

(These are quotes attributed to Haruki Murakami asnd William Cowper’s poem, "The Task" (1785) respectively)

Tally Ho Fitness Group support the intent of both of these quotations.  We ensure that we have leaders and instructors who are trained in their specific fields of endeavour.   

Fitness Leadership Development Team

The Fitness Leadership Development Team, (FLDT), are a group of Tally Ho members who have volunteered to receive the necessary training to be able to professionally lead the Group.FLDT Leader Peter

Four members of the FLDT regularly lead the Group on two Saturday mornings each month, at the Wesley College Games Hall.   There are several four member teams.

FLDT Leader Peter

A significant advantage of having four member teams, is that it allows each Leader to focus on exercises appropriate to their particular group of fitness abilities.

 By having a number of having FDLT leaders, then this opportunity ensures that we can offer a variet of instruction, to all fitness levels. FLDT Leader Michael

 They  also regularly lead the Group at the "away events', held each month.

 

 

 

The "away" events are held in various locations at parks, tracks and bush locations around the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

Generally at "away" events, there is more running and jogging than at Wesley College.  Walkers are also catered for.  So all who present have the opportunity for a good workout.   Members may have the option of having their breakfast after "away" events.

External Instructors and Venues

 

To reinforce to our theme, "Variety is the Spice of Life", we also visit instructors at external venues.    These venues include the YMCA Monash Fitness Centre and Genesis Gym at Ringwood. 

A great workout is guaranteed, as extensive use is made of their ropes, kettle bells and boxing ring.   There is also an excellent warm-up outside their venue.  The outcome is an fantastic workout for the morning.   Often there is a BAR BQ sausage or two for participants to enjoy.

The YMCA Monash Fitness Centre is a relatively new gym located in Mount Waverley.

Another Saturday morning, member Ross C, who has had a lifetime affinity with the water, organised an early morning surf carnival in the placid waters of Sandridge on the bay.Surf Boat at Sandridge

With two surf boats to row, numerous surf skis to paddle and beach activity in which to compete, it was one heck of a day.
 
A leisurely breakfast on the beach allowed the tired but elated participants to regain their strength before the journey home.
