Not too long to the big day. Our #Team Medau are having to catch up with their preparations as they have not long been back from Gran Canaria representing Great Britain in the 50 plus age category at the annual Blume Gym festival.
The team were the only representatives from Great Britain to fly the flag for the 50 plus age group. There were several young participants and we must congratulate the Heathrow Gym Club on winning the competition.
A recent report has warned that obesity in women is as major a problem as global warning, antibiotic resistant and security. Other European countries are always well represented at international gym festivals. One hundred and fifty Danish aged 50 plus took part and we were told that they had over a million participants in Denmark. If only we could encourage people from this country to regularly take part in exercise.
At a Medau class it doesn’t matter how old or how big or small you are, each participant is encourage to work for themselves. Now we all know that just one class a week is not going to solve your weight problem, but it can spur you on and give you a feeling of achievement and satisfaction. It can also give you social contact and life long friends, leading to a happier and healthier lifestyle.
All of us at Medau would like to wish our members a very Happy Christmas and New Year and look forward to seeing you all back in class in the New Year and to seeing many more of you in class for a fresh and invigorating start to 2016.
