OCEAN WALKER TECHNIQUE DEMONSTRATION

Adam Walker has swum the toughest 7 ocean swims in the World

Written off by his surgeon, Adam found a way of swimming front crawl that uses the POWER OF THE CORE rather than chest and shoulders which enabled him to swim faster for longer and become the first brit to complete the Oceans Seven Challenge in 2014. Adam coaches his swim stroke technique globally for Triathlon, Channel Swimmers, Ironman and leisure swimmers alike, working with royalty and celebrities in improving their speed and stamina in the water.

THE WILD COACH

CORE STRENGTH & PRIMAL MOVEMENT SESSIONS

Helen is a personal trainer and online coach specialising in behaviour change and holistic approaches to wellbeing. "I’m passionate about what I do, which is listening to people and coming up with plans to help them live their best life."
With a background in music and law, but after having my three children I developed a passion for fitness and worked as a personal trainer for a number of years. I soon realised that people needed more than just nutritional and workout advice, especially when they were trying to become leaner, and that’s when I became interested in nature and its importance in promoting wellbeing.

Introduction to Core Strength with The Wild Coach

Core strength is not just about having a six-pack! Your core includes your abdominal muscles, lower back, pelvic region and even your diaphragm. It’s so beneficial to everyone to develop a strong core as it is the foundation of the whole body. Core strength can reduce the possibility of lower back problems and other injuries, aid better posture and stability and help improve your exercise form.There are countless ways to work on your core strength so come and have a go at a range of moves that you can do anywhere, anytime.

Introduction to Primal Movements with The Wild Coach

Primal movement is a free-flowing energetic form of fitness which incorporates a number of disciplines including strength, mobility, balance, cardiovascular fitness and core strength. The essential movements include crawling, squatting, jumping and twisting: all natural movements which many of us have lost through modern lifestyles. Have a go at experimenting with different moves at your own pace and experience a sense of fun and freedom, returning to the way we used to move in primitive times!


Sunday 5th June @ 11:00 (30mins)

NEWFOUNDLAND WATER RESCUE DEMONSTRATIONS

Pete Lewin Newfoundlands began as a water rescue demonstration group. Whilst working as a HART Paramedic and being trained in water rescue, Pete saw the potential for the dogs to be used in real life rescue. Along with his team, Pete developed immobilisation manoeuvres and a human cradle to rescue people involved in water incidents, using the dogs to pull them back to shore.
Newfoundlands are one of the most loyal, affectionate, and protective breeds you can find. They have a gentleness towards children and are laid-back, relaxed and love to chill with some fuss. Above all else, they are one of the most handsome dogs around and make fantastic emotional support dogs.
