Strength Training for Women: 27th August at 10:00 AM

Training for Over 40s: 28th August at 10:00 AM

The ageing process leads to a loss of muscle strength and mass. Natalie will conduct simple tests on participants to gauge their current strengths and weaknesses.

She will then devise personalised fitness plans to maintain and enhance their abilities over the long term.

Running Workshop: 29th August at 7:00 AM

Open to both beginners and professionals, Natalie will share her techniques for warming up, pacing, fuelling, and hydration.

The session includes a morning group run on the beach tailored to different levels, followed by a thorough cooldown to promote recovery.
