MARK SHARP, assistant manager POC, is offering his strength and conditioning services to all POC members who want motivating.
Starting on Tuesday 23 September, from 1 to 1:30pm on the rooftop tennis court at POC, Mark will take people through a special circuit training session. He guarantees results and to help all involved achieve their goals safely and progressively. The sessions will feature a variety of resistance and cardiovascular exercises that are done repetitively and designed to build a level of fitness difficult to achieve on one's own.
Mark is running the session for the sheer joy of it and says that it is essential that a group of people get involved from the outset so goals can be achieved collectively as well as personally. Now is the perfect opportunity to make a commitment to yourself (and the group) twice a week Ð and to stick to it.
Mark will run four sessions a week. Tuesdays and Thursdays are recommended for those who have a good level of fitness and who already work out at least three times per week.
Wednesdays and Fridays are aimed at complete beginners and these sessions will help develop individuals to the standards of the Tuesday/Thursday sessions.
Mark says the sessions will help you lose fat, and that your levels of strength and muscular endurance will improve dramatically. The circuit includes dumb-bells, stretch cords, step aerobics, medicine balls and, of course Mark, who will be there to help you sweat it out.
Those interested in making a contract to become fighting fit, phone/fax Mark Sharp at: 2591-1930/2838-9665.
