Words from our Brussels Chairperson Anna Olsson
Last week I participated in the three-day General Assembly (AGM) of all Friskis&Svettis 156 clubs in the world, representing 537,000 Friskis members. During these days, I networked with the chairpersons of the other smaller clubs.
We may look slightly drunk as we stagger back the last few kilometers of our Nordic Walk beach adventure but hey, it will have been fun ;o).
Join Beau to feel the sea wind in your hair as we NW along the sandy beach from Ostende towards De Haan and back. We will be covering around 15 kilometers in our 5 hour adventure so be prepared with pair of poles, good shoes, some food/drink and a rain jacket…just in case.
We meet at 12:00 at Ostende Train Station on Sunday April 12.
Dear Members of Friskis & Svettis Brussels,
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of F&S Brussels will take place on Friday 24 April 2015 at 18.30 at Muntpunt, Muntplein/Place de la Monnaie, 1000 Brussels. The meeting will take place in the ‘Literair Salon’ on the first floor in the ‘Schildknaapgebouw’ (access via the main entrance of Muntpunt).
You like straight, simple and strength oriented training?
Then station medium 75 are the ideal workout for you. The session begins and ends with a nice warm-up/cool down and a sweaty cardio section that you know from our classic jympa sessions. However, the strength part is quite different.
We split up in groups and train strength in different stations, sometimes with step boards, dumbbells or rubber bands. We run four stations in five laps and work about a minute per station.
You choose yourself how heavy the work is by adjusting the weight of dumbbells or the resistance of the rubber band.
On 7 and 27 April, Anne will offer Station medium 75 at 19.00h in Maalbeek.
Since the Royal Military School (ERM) is closed for security reasons until at least 21 April incl. we have been trying hard again to find another location to offer you our Friskis Spin sessions.
We are happy to inform you that we will continue offering some Spin sessions in April and May
Where: Access via Centre Mounier Woluwé, Avenue Emmanuel Mounier 87 (spin studio Proud2B – thanks a lot for your cooperation!)
When: Saturdays 12.45 – 13.45
This offer is currently limited to 11, 18 and 25 April, 2 and 23 May (in addition to the session already scheduled for SUNDAY 29.03.2015) - use this unique opportunity to drop by and try out spin.
We have 20 bikes at your disposal! Our Spin card members get first access, but apart from that – First come – First served! To attend the sessions, you either show the host your full membership card or you have the possibility to purchase 4-session cards from the host at 35€. You can of course also pay single sessions (10€).
Thibaud is covering all sessions – Join us there!
Unfortunately we need to stop with Running Beginners for now, as the instructor is injured. The last session was given on Monday 23rd of March.
