The GET FIT Winter Program (which we reviewed on knowitall.ch earlier in the year) will be closed for the festive season. However the program will resume on the 10th of January.

If you are unfamiliar with GET FIT, the organization runs group sessions during the course of the year in which the GET FIT team learn the ”Art of Running" and its positive impact on the body’s physical state. Participating runners train for 5k,10k, half marathons, or marathons - or simply learn to run and get into the best physical shape. The objective is to maximize the body's physical potential!

According to GET FIT trainer, Leigh Anne Boonzaier, you don't have to be a professional runner or have a background in sports to join in. You just have to have two legs, a healthy body and a great attitude! And if you don't have a healthy body...GET FIT will get you there!  This is not a diet plan or a quick weight loss scheme, but more a healthy way of life with a great group of ladies!

Below you will find a few of the "hot" events that will be in the GET FIT calendar:

20 March Tour de Presinge (10k). For more information, visit: http://www.tourpresinge.ch/

March (date not known yet) Vandouves Run  (7.5 K)
