In Rohan Beverley we were lucky enough to be one of four stores to pilot the new StrideFit programme.
The programme has been developed with Matt Roberts, one of the worlds leading personal trainers. StrideFit is based around a 12 week exercise programme including walking and strength building work. During our time training with the Matt Roberts team we were all put through our paces with mobility tests and I’m sure everyone was eager to improve before the programme started.
September 24th was the launch day for us in Rohan Beverley, we held a diagnostics day with Jon Roberts (a biomechanics expert!). Jon arrived in Beverley first thing and was put straight to work with the impressive footscan device. Using the footscan Jon could help people with any walking related problems or injuries and then give advice. Many of the problems encountered during the day could be solved with simple exercises. After the amount of interest we had in the diagnostic session Jon had to work hard throughout the day to see everyone and even stayed a little later than planned to let the staff have a go!
Feedback from the staff and everyone who came to see Jon on the day was excellent and we would like to thank him for his time.
With Jon’s advice fresh in everyone’s minds we started the StrideFit programme the next day. Even though it was a dull morning everyone managed to get themselves out of bed for some Sunday morning exercise. We started the session with some stretches and an introduction to the exercises. We then went on a short walk on Beverley Westwood where the weather was on our side and our waterproofs stayed packed away. The morning finished back at the store with some stretching and refreshments with everyone looking forward to the next session.
If you would like to find out how the sessions are going keep an eye out for updates on our Rohantime page.
