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.
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.
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.
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 normally lead the Group for one or two mornings in the month. These instructors may lead the Group at Wesley.
Regular instructors at Wesley include:
Justin is an experienced instructor with particular abilities in boxing and weight training. Boxing sessions are always with pads and gloves, so that there is no physical contact between participants.
Weight sessions are run using light weights and repetitive sets of exercises to ensure a good upper body workout is achieved.
Krunchies Health & Fitness is a unique fitness provider offering fantastic outcomes as they strive to be the number 1 outdoor fitness provider in Melbourne.
Krunchies was created in 2008 by Greg Porter. Greg, ably assisted by Mel, enjoy working in the fresh air, without the restrictions of a gym and indoor environments as they endeavour to take our fitness to a new level.
They dislike sessions that are full of burpees, push ups and running. They are different making good use of Kettlebells, Tyres, Battling Ropes, Boxing, Weight Training, Harness Running and much more.

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.

Genesis Ringwood Gym is another popular external venue. Because we start early, we have use of facilities for warm up prior to two gruelling sessions lead by Lauren with the weights and stretching and by Jan on the bikes.
A healthy breakfast is available afterwards for those who wish to participate.
