As before if you can’t do Monday nights feel free to run the session independently.
If you are new to Mondays and the sessions seem a little daunting please don’t be put off. Published session plans are just a guide we are happy to amend sessions to cater for all abilities, please do come and speak to one of the coaches.
If you have any feedback on the first 6 week block we’d love to hear it.
