New Running Trails for all abilities

The winter debris – branches, twigs, beech nuts etc – has been cleared away and the original running trail has been ‘strimmed’. It is ready to use, albeit in a new form. But now there is a choice:

a 1 km course (a mixture of woodland trails ands more ‘open’ running, down the edge of the farthest pitches)

a 1 mile course (an extension to the 1 km course which adds additional grass running along another of the lower pitches ) and

a 2.5 km course (which extends the 1 mile course by adding in even more grassy running, around the uppermost pitch).



On Sunday, 19 April 2015, the Huddersfield Marathon again starts from the Huddersfield YMCA Sports Grounds. HD3 Fitness Centre staff will again lead the ‘warm up’. In addition, there is ‘Fun Run’ which is based on one of the trails described above. Get yourself signed up!


Book Swap at HD3 Fitness centre


We have just started a “book swap” at HD3 Fitness Centre. Take one to read. Swap for one of your own. Today for example there’s a John le Carre, a David Mitchell, a Tony Parsons, a Joanne Harris and a Madeline Miller. They are all in the reception area.



Nordic Walkers brave Arctic conditions!

nordic-nicolaThe Nordic Walking Group, led by Linda and HD3 Fitness Centre’s instructor Nicola, didn’t miss out on their Wednesday hike despite the snowy conditions. The group has a weekly meet for a local hike but also plans on running monthly trips to destinations further afield. Currently there are two groups, one fast, one less fast, so there’s something for everyone. And, there’s hot drinks and cake waiting at the finish. For further details, call in at the Fitness Centre for more information.
