Fabulous News

We have two new contributions to the web site from members of Orion

Congratulations to Lukas Mykhnenko who has posted the first Wednesday Aerobic Set time from the 7 Day Land Work Plan – lets see lots more of you sending in your times

And secondly, Faith McFerran has sent us a video for the Keeping Up with The Batchelors Page – Well done Faith

Remember this site is for and about you the Orion members, providing as much information as we can during this lockdown period, to support you keeping motivated and fit, both now and continuing once we are back in the water.

If you haven’t signed up to membership yet to access all the great info then what better time is there to do it than NOW!!!

Even More Pages of Web Site Fun

Hi Everyone

Your coaches have been busy creating ideas for land training and ways of keeping you, fit, motivated and interested. WE have been building new pages with the membership section and there is now a great deal of both internally created content and links to other sites with great ideas to keep you going.

The latest two pages are ‘Make Training Fun at Home, and ’Keeping Up with The Batchelors’ – Both of these pages are aimed at mobilising the Orion community into becoming active contributors to the site, sharing you own ideas and what you are up to at the moment, and ultimately keeping a record of what will hopefully be a unique experience in all of our lives.

Other pages include land work plans, tips on warming up, coaching thoughts, technical tips, and the list goes on

Please do come and look at your club’s website and sign to join and access all the additional great information and support – that includes 1:1 video chats with your favourite coach

If you are unsure about joining please email with any concerns that you have

Happy Exercising

Cheers Robin
