Our Daley training session12.06.2019
When our client Cintra HR & Payroll asked us to join them on a training session coached by Daley Thompson, in support of Coco charity we jumped at the opportunity. Cocos’ mission is to provide sustainable sources of quality education to children living in poor and marginalised communities, we are always keen to help Cintras’ initiatives to support the Charity. With four world records, two Olympic gold medals, three Commonwealth titles, and wins in the World and European Championships, Daley is considered by many to be one of the greatest decathletes of all time. Surely he would go easy on our gym avoiding pen pushers right?
Wrong, the session started with fast paced cardio and although it was tough we can say with hindsight (not at the time) that it was all really good fun. The years don’t seem to have diminished Daleys appetite for fitness and indeed he is still as fit as a fiddle, with no-one really being able to keep up with him. The legendary banter is still there as well, which we noted when slyly trying to pick some lighter weights up, only to find a larger than life Daley eyeballing us and asking what we were playing at!
Reward came after an hour as our bedraggled team headed off to lunch, with everyone agreeing that we had found so many muscles that we had forgotten we actually had. Not sure if we will be walking like we have been in the saddle for a few months for the rest of this week, but it was a truly enjoyable day!
Thank you to Coco, Cintra, Ramside Hall, and last but not least…Daley Thompson.
