Get Set for 2012 Get-Together
23 January, 2012
Twelve ‘On Camp with Kelly’ athletes, ten ‘Future Stars with Kelly’ initiatives and seven coaches met up in Kelly’s home town of Tonbridge on the weekend of 21-22 January for the first Aviva-sponsored Get-Together of 2012. With the theme of ‘Get Set for 2012’, Kelly used the Get-Together to inspire participants and help set them up for a successful year.
On Saturday the athletes took part in some intensive training sessions including aqua-jogging led by Kelly, demonstrating how it can be a valuable addition to their training programme whether they are injured or not, and a Pilates session with Sandrine Walker, owner of Sandrine’s Pilates studio in Tunbridge Wells. They were also set the task of devising and taking part in their own circuit training session.
However the weekend wasn’t all physical, on Saturday afternoon the athletes and coaches took part in a goal setting workshop with OCWK Sport Psychologist Dr Anna Waters. After reflecting on their successes and lessons learnt from 2011, they worked on their goal plans for 2012 using a wall planner developed by ‘On Camp with Kelly’.
Sunday morning started with a tough hill and tempo training session in the beautiful setting of Knole Park in Sevenoaks where Kelly herself used to train during her career. The athletes and coaches then returned to the excellent facilities at Tonbridge School Centre for lunch followed by a UK Anti-Doping 100% me workshop to refresh their knowledge on anti-doping regulations and procedures.
The ‘On Camp with Kelly’ athletes who took part in the Get-Together were Charlotte Best, Suzi Boast, Dani Christmas, Lucy Dowsett, Faye Fullerton, Gemma Kersey, Katie Knowles, Alison Leonard, Sam Petty, Robbie Schofield, Louise Small and Claire Tarplee.
