Circuits

7pm Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday (9am on Bank Holidays)

Circuits is held at our pavilion in Totley and is free to all Totley AC members.

Monday and Tuesday run every week. Wednesday runs 2 weeks on, and one week off – check the calendar for when it’s on.

Forget that noisy, smelly, claustrophobic room. The outdoors is the best place to get your fix! Maximize your workout – Combine cardiovascular exercise with resistance training. (Bring breakfast on Bank Holidays)

Baby-Friendly Circuits

The circuits is more of an informal opportunity for mums / dads/ etc to exercise together and bring their babies along. We put on a timer and some music, put out some mats and follow our own exercises for an hour. With a cup of tea and chat after 😁
It’s very much a social opportunity with a bit of exercise thrown in!

It’s either inside or outside depending on the weather. There’s no age limit to the babies. Ones that aren’t crawling sometimes make things easier as they stay in one place, but we often have people with small babies having to do a lot of squats with the babies in a sling!

Tuesdays

Tuesday Fell / Road run

6.30 pm

Spring / Summer

Totley Pavilion (S17 3BD opposite side of the cricket field to the Cricket Inn)

Off-road social runs exploring the superb scenery of moorlands and woodlands around Totley. We split into two or three groups catering to all abilities and speeds.

  • Colin’s ‘senior’ running group will do around an hour between 6.30pm and 7.30pm, and up to about 10km. This group is a chatty, slower group for anyone who wants something a bit gentler.
  • We also have a large, steady social group that will do around 12 or 13km between 6.30pm and 8pm.
  • The smaller, faster group will do up to about 15km.

No need to decide in advance. Turn up at 6.30pm and see how you feel. No-one will be left behind. 😊

Off-road skills

A one hour structured session, with a focus on the skills and fitness needed to enjoy running off-road, including running uphill, downhill, and over rough ground. All are welcome and the session will be organised to include all abilities.Suitable for beginners who’d like to try running off-road, and want to build the skills, fitness and knowledge of the local area to do so. It will also suit more experienced runners who’d like a one hour session in which they can practice skills and improve fitness with friends.
