Jog Northants

In January last year, Rockingham Primary School, along with 6 other schools in Northamptonshire, took advantage of the free Jog Northants programme. The Jog Northants programme provided schools with a qualified and insured leader to lead beginner jogging session to parents. The sessions included a light warm-up and integrated power walking with some light running to gradually improve fitness. The classes lasted between 6-10 weeks and all started at 9:00am after the morning drop off.

The sessions were completely free of charge and were of no cost to the school or parents. The schools helped promote the groups and encouraged parents to come along, the leader did the rest! We are offering out free 10 week beginners jogging courses to schools to start in January 2015.

Frances McKechnie, Parent Support Advisor at Rockingham Primary School said:

“The Jogging group has been a great success at our school. Parents have said how much they enjoy the social aspects as well as keeping fit. They feel inspired and motivated to losing weight, giving up smoking or simply to feel better about themselves.

The group has been successful because of the encouragement and enthusiasm from the Leader provided in working with parents to help them achieve their individual goals”.

Jog Northants – Free School Gates Jogging Groups Success

Below are some comments from the group members on their experience:

“I have recently given up smoking and feel healthier but was afraid of putting on weight. This jogging group has helped me, at first I was embarrassed of who saw me jogging but now I don’t care who sees me”

“The Leader has been fantastic she started the group off slow and gradually brought me up to a level where I could feel the difference in my health and fitness”

“It’s a good mix of parents and we all get on so well now”

“I’ve really enjoyed how the leader varied the route and activities and made sure each person was ok”

“The leader is very friendly and very supportive. Always encouraging us to do just a little bit more. She is great”

If you would like a jogging group for the parents at your school, starting in January 2015, please contact the school office.
