SpikeBall at Claremont

For those who have no knowledge of Spikeball here is a brief introduction to this fast paced game.

It is 4v4 Volleyball with a slight difference. And that the 2nd touch of the ball is a catch and throw. This makes sure the game is more fun, more opportunity for the team members to hit the ball.

Claremont Stadium is lucky to have the expertise of Volleyball Ireland Coach Dwyne Hill to help run this fun hour. It takes place on Friday afternoons at 4.30pm.

We would like to encourage all children between the age of 7 & 12 years to come along (with a parent) to experience Spikeball.

The cost for the hour is €2.

Mother and Baby Fitness Class

With such a diverse number of people in our community stepping into their running shoes, we have noticed that there is one group who are not getting the help and attention they deserve and might need – new mums and their babies.

It is often hard to get back into fitness and shape after having a baby. With this in mind, Paul Tully (Personal Trainer) will start a mother and baby fitness class in September. Paul has run many classes here in the stadium and is well known in the area. His website is http://paultullyfitness.com/

If you are interested in joining his group please let us know by contacting us on facebook or by ringing the stadium 046 9029693

Walking Group – Getting Motivated

Claremont Stadium’s Walking Group had a highly motivated walker drop in on Thursday 20th January to check in on our progress. Lucy Dillon of MLSP and Operation Motivation brought a ray of sunshine to the track. She gave everyone in the group some inspiring tips for walking regarding a simple stretching exercise, then joined in for a fast paced mile walk. The group ended the session with a few more stretches and all agreed it was a fun filled hour. We are looking forward to our next few weeks of meet ups.

As Lucy pointed out there are many additional benefits to walking besides the obvious; fresh air and exercise. Walking has been proven to improve our sense of wellbeing, influence our mood and in our case  make new friends. As we age walking is an easily affordable past time for us to stick to and when we add in a friend or two to the mix it makes it more fun for all involved.

We will continue to walk every Thursday at 11am and we are not regimented with our structure. We walk at a pace to suit each individual, with the promise of a cup of tea at the end to push us along. 

 

2017 New Year – New You

Claremont Stadium is committed to providing sporting and educational events to those in Navan.

We realise that many people start 2017 with a “I will get fitter and healthier this year,” resolution but by the end of January this is lost in the mundane but busy routines that consume our time.  So, we are kicking of this year with a motivational walking group .

Our aim is to help people achieve their goal by providing, a sociable environment where you can walk, run or talk your way around the track at your own pace. You set the target and we help you achieve it.  The group of women and men who walked last year discovered that the group all had one aim in common – to lose weight or tone up and get fit. To this end, many discussions on diet etc were held.

At €2 per session our track is open to everyone regardless of age or fitness level.  For more information please call the office at: 046 9029693
