"It all came together on the day and I loved it!"
Crossing the line!!! WELL DONE Kristina :)
The feeling when I crossed the line knowing I had completed it in the time I wanted (and in fact better) was amazing. This was my third marathon. The first one I just wanted to challenge myself to complete one. The second one I had a time in mind but unfortunately it was just soooo hot so I slowed down (summer2018) and just enjoyed it (tried to!) But this time, luckily for me, it all came together on the day and I loved it. Big thanks to Heather at TLA for improving my strength and getting me fit for running.
We are going to kick off some Sunday Vibes at the TLA Studio
SUNDAY VIBES WITH AJ
The activity is in the title, YEP we are going to kick off some Sunday Vibes at the TLA Studio on Sunday 9th June at 10:15 straight after TLA's Bootcamp.
This Pulseroll workshop is a must for anyone who trains their body. The Pulseroll works as a regular roller but speeds up the release of muscle tension leaving you feeling repaired, restored and ready to go again! We’ll work through how to target tight muscle areas and those harder to reach zones. The workshop will be lead by AJ from AJ Active who's one of Oxfordshires leading freestyle instructors who teaches in Aerobics, Step, Pilates, Yoga and Flexi-bar. Come along and feel the buzz! This will be a fantastic experience and honestly one that you'll feel better for having done.
NEW Private Groups @ TLA
TLA Private Groups - This is a group that get together once or twice weekly to train together and commit to a block of sessions. During these training sessions, we (TLA instructors) are taking the time to work on:
1) individual performance 2) having fun as a familiar training group 3) really getting the best out of your performance.
If we are monitoring you as individuals we are able to keep a far better track of your progress and ensure you are getting the right mix of exercises. Aside from TLA's Bootcamps, we are now solely a Private Group and Personal Training provider.
Soooo Let's drink!
Hydration is essential to peak athletic performance (TLA Classes!). When you do not consume enough liquid or fresh fruits and vegetables to stay properly hydrated, you end up thirsty and light headed. Insufficient hydration fatigues your muscles, reduces your coordination and causes muscle cramps. While working out or playing sports, dehydration compromises the body’s ability to cool itself through sweating. Soooo Let's drink!
