Week 5 and our Latest Challenge – get creative!


Hope you’re well as can be & not getting too frustrated.  Every week I send out a mail to you all regardless of paying members, we want to say in touch with you all & hope that you are well.
The Zoom Classes have picked up with us now doing grade classes on Monday mornings, today I taught the white – green strieps & it was great to see you all & well done on the work out. 
So we have a new challenge below & some info on training plans ENJOY !! 🙂 
The JSTKD  Challenge – 
Throughout the TAGB Instructors have been following suit with “design your club T shirt ” 
The winner gets the T shirt made then we try to sell the shirt through the clubs giving all proceeds to the NHS 

Blank T shirt template: Blank T Shirt template

Please enlarge it, print it off for your child to draw a design & get it back to me, you can simply take a photo or scan it in your PC etc..  You may need to play around with the template a bit – maybe enlarge the front view to a reasonable size and then do the same with the back view.  If you’re feeling artistic, you can copy it yourself onto a blank sheet and use that instead!
Once you’ve done that – just Whats App it to me. 
Please try to give this a go , as it is for a great cause, we will run this over a few weeks adding in a physical challenge to keep us moving 🙂  
So all in all we are keeping busy with classes & plans plus our challenges. 
I want to thank all parents / students that can afford to support the club & that with your support we can keep all children active. 
So here is our basic plan, you can go to the youtube page & see all info –
