Reds in the Community are delighted to announce the launch of Learn and Burn!
The Health initiative, which is designed for adults of any age, provides participants with a combination of theoretical advice and light practical exercise to help improve general health for just £2 per week.
The programme, which is based at the Oakwell Indoor Centre from 3-4:30pm every Wednesday, runs on an eight-week rolling basis tackling different subjects around nutrition and fitness.
Incorporated into the hour and a half session is 30 minutes of health and nutritional advice followed by an hour of low-intensity circuit-based exercise.
Despite running as a group, participants have the opportunity to gain individual feedback on their general health and diet alongside one-to-one advice.
The session is something that Health Officer Sean Margison has led before in his previous role before joining Reds in the Community.
It has a big social aspect, with participants normally meeting for a hot drink after each week’s activity.
There is also the option to come along to the group just for the classroom-based nutritional advice, something that a number of participants currently do.
Joan Kahn, a regular attendee at the sessions, spoke about why she comes along on a weekly basis.
She said: “They’re wonderful. It energises me and it makes me feel good about myself. We walk together some of us and are intending to extend on that and go a little further. We meet and have some lunch and Christmas lunch. It’s become a family kind of thing. Sean stresses that it’s at your rate, it’s not competitive in any way. We’re here for ourselves and then it’s a bonus having that group together of like-minded people.”
