Athletics is all that I know!

Hannah Foster

A lot of people dream of what they want to be when they’re older; but none quite like Hannah Foster.

From the age of 5, Hannah watched her older brother train at Stockwood Park Athletics Centre.

“I’d be up at the track quite often watching my brother knowing that it was all I wanted to do. I guess, in a funny way, I can thank my brother for inspiring me to try sprinting.”

As soon as Hannah was able to, she started training at Stockwood Park Athletics Centre sprinting 300m and 400m competitively. Since then she has progressed to hurdles following the advice from her coach.

Active Luton’s Top Tips! 3 ways get active & stay active

 1. Find an activity that you enjoy & make it part of your routine

Swimming, gym, fitness classes, group or individual sporting activities- whatever gets your blood pumping and body moving! It doesn’t have to be high intensity exercise; in just 60 minutes the average person can burn up to 817 calories (fast swimming) or 572 calories (slow swimming)! Exercising and keeping active should fit into your daily routine. Don’t worry though- that doesn’t mean going to the gym everyday! In general, three to five workouts per week (or in other words, three to five hours of physical exercise) tend to produce good results. Whether that’s walking or cycling instead of driving to the shop or taking the stairs instead of the lift- it all adds up to an active, healthier you!

Lifeguarding

Love

Not sure what a lifeguard is or what it entails? By the end of this blog you will have some sort of clue and know if it’s a right path for you!

What is a lifeguard?
Lifeguards are trained members of staff employed to rescue swimmers who get into difficulty in the pool. You might see them sitting poolside in our yellow shirts with straight faces but rest assured, they’re always ready to act - like when Cade suffered a cardiac arrest during school swimming lessons!

 

Why choose lifeguarding?
Lifeguarding is a career that works around you - great if you’re still in full-time education or looking for work that fits around your lifestyle.

Not only do you learn lifesaving skills, but the National Pool Lifeguarding Qualification (NPLQ) is internationally recognised, meaning you have the potential to work and travel abroad!
