Summer is going by in flash!

As we are nearing the end of June and I am in my last week of classes for this session I am wondering where the time has gone! We've had an interesting month with a few very rainy days and some super hot ones as well but we made the most of the elements and had some pretty stellar workouts.

Due to the Queen's visit on Monday (the Commons will be shut down) and Canada Day on Thursday next week, the next session of classes will not be starting until the week of July 5th. I've updated the Upcoming Classes page with the July sessions, including two new classes whose schedules have yet to be determined. I've had some requests for a Bedford class and a Cole Harbour class so if you are interested in either of these sessions please email me at julie@juliemacfitness.com and let me know what days/times work best for you. I will be scheduling the classes according to the demand from these emails.

For those of you that can't go a week without swinging a bell, and who can blame you, I will be putting on a couple free classes on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. These classes are open to everyone (newbies included) but will require signing up to ensure we have enough bells for everyone. I will post sign up information in the next couple of days so keep an eye on the blog.

Kettlebell class doesn't get rained out!

I watched the rain pour down all afternoon hoping it would let up at 5:30pm for my first beginner class of June....it did not. I showed up to class wondering if anyone else would brave the weather and I was pleasantly surprised to have almost the entire class attend!

Jeannine, Tanya, Lauren, Keely, and Glenys started out learning some bodyweight exercises since it was way too wet out to use the kettlebells. Then about 30 minutes into the class we realized the rain had stopped and we rushed over to the car to grab the bells. We had enough time for some deadlifts and swings then the sky opened up and sheets of rain came down on us. Good thing it was time to stretch!

Theses ladies are hardcore athletes, they showed up in the pouring rain and did everything I asked (including push ups in the soggy ground). I can't wait to see how they do through the rest of the month!
