On Saturday (24 November) we held our monthly event – HIIT+CHILL+CHAT in Richmond – an experience incorporating movement, mindfulness and conversation around the theme of movement.
Movement, Mindfulness and Conversation
The mini-retreat style event kicked off with a 45-minute HIIT workout following a circuit of different themed exercises. This was closely followed by a 30-minute relaxing mindfulness experience before we welcomed our guest speaker. Caitlin Limmer, founder of the Bearcat Running Club, and race director of the Cabbage Patch 10 and the Turks Head 10 joined us to discuss the power of movement for the CHAT element of the event.
What they said about our HIIT+CHILL+CHAT mini-retreat:
“Thank you once again for a fabulous morning. Great HIIT, amazing meditation and inspirational guest!”
“Thank you for a brilliant start to the weekend. Fab HIIT, soothing meditation/chill and inspiring chat. Look forward to next month!”
“Truly amazing morning! Thank you so much, can’t wait to come back again!”
“The whole package was awesome. The BEST class I’ve ever done!! LOVED IT! HIIT usually fills me with dread. This one didn’t. Thank you!!”
“Thank you for a lovely Saturday morning and start to the weekend. All 3 parts were so meaningfull.”
“Thank you for today! Was absolutely brilliant! Not the burpees though. Never the burpees.”
“Thank you for an amazing Saturday morning. All 3 sessions were so good!”
“The best morning, thanks all. Fun class, such a nice relaxing chill and great chat.”
The Power of Movement
Our theme for November was Movement – one of the foundational principles of POINT3 Wellbeing.
Thank you to Caitlin Limmer for joining us to share her story around how she became so involved in the running community and beyond – from personal trainer to now race director for one of London’s most famous of races – the Cabbage Patch 10. Caitlin led an inspiring conversation around making running and exercise accessible and welcoming, and how it’s arguably even more about the community side of things, than the sport itself. You can read our short interview with Caitlin here.
