Sole Sisters Victoria Walk/Run Program Information

 

 

Welcome to Sole Sisters Victoria

Sole Sisters Victoria provides women a space to improve their overall health and well-being through physical movement, camaraderie, and community involvement.  The Sole Sisters journey will support you to increase your physical fitness level, challenge your mental strength, and enlighten your emotional well-being.  Sole Sisters look forward to meeting you!

2019 is offering a NEW time, NEW location, NEW format, NEW price (yes, lower!)…and of course NEW and “old” Sisters are always welcomed!

We talked to women, listened to what they want, and have created NEW opportunities to help you “fit in fitness”!

But do not worry…Sole Sisters will always….

  • have a place for every “body”
  • accommodate levels of all participants
  • walk, power walk, pole walk, walk/run, run steady, run faster
  • add in special programs (circuit, spin, yoga, personal coaching) when possible
  • support women finding $$ is their barrier to participating ~ just contact Mena!
  • give back to our community 

Walk/Run Clinics – 5k, 10k, 1/2 marathon OR Circuit Class!

  • We will host 2 weekly clinic times along with many other options during the week to meet and move with other sisters 
    • Tuesday at 5:45pm – but please read below for details regarding Tuesdays
    • Fridays at 9am
    • A Sole Sisters registration is all about OPTIONS…come to one, come to both

There is something special about Tuesdays…

  • Tuesday night start times will be staggered to suit YOUR needs.  I will begin at 5:00pm with the Information of the Week…followed by a “group” circuit class.  What does that mean?  When you show up, join in!  There will be a designated “warm-up” station for everyone to begin with when they arrive…then follow along with the group and enjoy a variety of circuit style exercises that will provide you the options of a strength and conditioning workout before you go out the door OR this group circuit class may be your preferred workout for a variety of reasons on that day.  Yes, you may come and do the group circuit class and leave. 
  • PLEASE NOTE:  All walk, pole walk and run groups will gather at 5:45pm for their “meet and greet” and head out the door no later than 6pm.  

What could Tuesday nights look like for you?

  • Show up at 5pm and take it all in – be home and well “worked out” by 7pm!
  • Work late or unable to make a 5pm start? Show up at 5:45pm and fit in your fitness in a neat and tidy 60 minutes!
  • Injured?  Show up at 5pm, take in the lessons of the week and participate in the  circuit class that will provide safe options for YOUR body.
  • YES, you may ask – can I just sign up to participate in the Group Circuit Class?  YES you CAN!

Fridays 9:00am start – meet and move:)

  • We gather, we inspire, we warm-up, we perspire, we cool-down, and then we retire at the coffee shop if you have the time:)

Where?

  • Tuesdays at Pearkes Recreation Centre in Field House #1 located at 3100 Tillicum Road beside the Silver City movie theatres.  Please do not stop at the front desk and ask about Sole Sisters.  Sole Sisters is a private rental at this facility.  Enter the Pearkes Recreation Centre, head towards the reception desk, turn right and go up the ramp – it will lead you into the field house.  Thank you!   
  • Fridays will meet at the Quality Foods at Eagle Creek complex on their front patio located at 27 Helmcken Road across from the Victoria General Hospital.  

Sole Sisters Leaders:

Sole Sisters leaders are women like you and me!  Sole Sisters leaders will guide you through walks, pole walks, walk/runs, and runs in a safe, encouraging, motivating and FUN direction:).

  • The Sole Sisters Victoria walk/run manual and log book will be provided to you online or in hard copy if the latter is your preference.
  • YES, we have reduced our price by $15!  Why and how?  This new format = less facility rental fees.  Why?  We really want Sole Sisters to be affordable for everyone…do not forget about the W.O.W. program – see below for more!

Sole Sisters Victoria encompasses YOU!  We strive to provide opportunities for women of all shapes, sizes, ages and styles of movement while inspiring women all over the world to believe that they CAN!

W.O.W. did you know…

Sole Sisters Victoria have helped over 150 women participate in clinics over the years through the W.O.W. (Women Of Wellness) program.  Please, if you or a sister you know of, find money the barrier to participating in Sole Sisters Victoria, contact Mena @ solesistermena@telus.net.  Would you like to support a sister?  Donations to our W.O.W. program can also be made at http://www.solesistersvictoria.com/walk-run-information/ at the bottom of the page.  Thank you for your support and for asking for support!

Yes, we are making changes BUT will continue to live by the Sole Sisters ‘Swear-bys’:

~ Sisters NEVER leave a sister alone
~ Sisters believe that we are all athletes despite our speed or style
~ Sisters work towards improving our own individual lifestyles by tending to our emotional, physical, spiritual, occupational, social and intellectual well-being (Bill Hettler, 1976) and in doing so we have a positive impact on those around us.
