WEEKLY WALKING GROUPS

Come rain, hail or shine (but cancelled for lightning!), Ascent Fitness has two 60-minute walking group sessions each week in Launceston. Tuesday mornings start off at 6 am with Morning Walking Workout and, at 6.00 pm each Wednesday, Hump Day Hill Sesh gets you over the peak of the week.

A new start point in the greater Launceston area each session keeps things fresh and you will definitely find yourself in places you did not know existed. What a way to get to know your own back yard, while walking for fitness!

The walks are circuits and are timed strictly to be completed at the 1-hour mark (more so with Morning Walking Workout), so be prepared for brisk walking! With an unsurpassed knowledge of the greater Launceston area on foot, a wide range of fitness levels can be catered for in the one walking group.

If you’re not sure where your fitness levels are at, contact John from Ascent Fitness here and make a booking for a 1-on-1 walking fitness test.

Following the Federal Government announcement this evening, limiting group sizes (outside of your household) to 2 persons, Ascent Fitness has suspended all group walking sessions until the restrictions are lifted.

Ascent Fitness can continue to offer personal training walking sessions and enquiries to that end are welcome.

Stay safe and we'll see you on the other side!

When you head for the eastern side of the Launceston Urban Fringe Trail from Rocherlea to Ravenswood at 7am on a Sunday, social distancing is easy!

Our small group headed down the Rocherlea Old Rail Trail (the 'back track' if you're a Rocherlea local) and we got to see in full why one Launceston City Councillor described the LUFT as the 'warts and all tour of Launceston'!

There were some pretty bits and some not so great bits along the way, but the not so great bits can get better if more people use the LUFT.
