Tempo Gearing Up for Couch 2 5k

couch-to-5kTempo Maguires GAC are excited to be working in partnership with Cancer Focus to offer the popular Couch 2 5k exercise programme in Tempo.

A spokesperson for Tempo Maguires GAC said:

“The Couch 2 5K plan is designed to get you off the couch and gradually work you up to running five kilometres in just eight weeks. A 5k fun run will take place in Tempo on 11th March 2017 for participants of this programme.

“Probably the biggest challenge a novice runner faces is not knowing how or where to start. Couch 2 5K works because it starts with a mix of running and walking, gradually building up your fitness and stamina slowly, therefore creating realistic expectations and making the challenge feel achievable from day one.

“This challenge is for everyone, whether you’ve never run before or if you want to get back into being more active. A professional trainer will oversee the programme and guide you through the necessary steps.

“Join us on Tuesday 17th January 2017 in the Tempo Maguires GAC clubrooms at 7:00pm to register for this fitness programme. The eight-week programme costs just £35 and this includes two training sessions every week (Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings). Proceeds from this programme will be donated to Cancer Focus. For more details, please contact 07985955555.”
