WESTFIELDS found a novel way to keep in shape after the postponement of their home match with Continental Star on Saturday.
The 22-man squad were put through their paces to music by Starlight dance instructor Rebecca White with a tone and stretch session at thePoint4 and enjoyed the different approach to fitness.
“We have 22 MFA league matches and two cup competitions to play in in the next three months,” said chief executive Andy Morris.
“It’s going to be a very busy three months.”
Manager Sean Edwards added: “We hope now the snow has gone we can get back to playing again as our league insist we complete our MFA fixtures by April 27.
“Rebecca’s session put the lads in good spirits and they are all keen to get back to playing after the recent postponements.”
“We worked on a combination of strengthening, core work, balance and flexibility taking influence from my ballet based conditioning,” said Rebecca White.
“Ballet, Pilates and Yoga strengthen your back, legs and arms, with a great emphasis on strengthening your core muscles.
“Being flexible may not seem like a key factor in football, but increased flexibility has many benefits to the game; agility, moving quickly on your feet, changing directions with greater balance, stability and also a better range of motion. ”
