Tiger Talk – 18 August 2016


It is amazing what a week off does for the mind or that was what I hoped for but alas, while our seniors and reserves had a rest week the under 18’s played at Dodges ferry and the board met to look at the challenges ahead.  This season is at the cross roads with our Reserves expected to play finals and the Seniors final berth hinging on the last two roster games against Cygnet and Huonville. What an exciting fortnight.

The end of the football season also means that other winter rosters are coming to finals and at Hobart Football Club we are pleased to see our cribbage group are well placed to challenge in the grand final and our touch football team will play off in the first semi final this week.  Good luck to all those involved. I have missed two very important groups and they are our Master Rules and our juniors.  Last week these two groups got together well the master rules put on a pie night for the juniors and it was a raging success.  The master rules even supplied some old football footage to show the difference in football now to 20 years ago.

This week we will look at two of our sponsors and the services they provide to our members.

The first is Status Dry Cleaners.  Some time ago we purchased our son the typical $300+ winter jacket  and were sure this would be good for years to come.  Imagine our disbelief when he wore it to work for weeks and it returned home covered in paint including one brushfull up one sleeve. Take it to Status Dry Cleaners was  the wifes call.  Bin it was my response but of course it went to Status.  Well low and behold when I picked it up three days later you would never know it had even been at any work site it was unbelievable.  Discussion of this within the family led another member to ask Could you fix my jacket it has a green paint stripe across the back (courteousy of the TCA grandstand) was the request.  Again I collected the jacket from Status and another miracle has occurred.  Thanks for such great outcomes.

The second sponsor is Back in Motion who attend our club weekly to work with injured players .The player feedback has been really positive and our head trainer tells me this has impacted very positively on his workload at the club. Well Back in Motion have now commenced a program for all our members and there is a free assessment for you.  Do not be afraid Pilates is a terrific wellbeing program that will deliver results.  Check out the attached info below.

Come and Try Pilates!


In April the physiotherapists at Back In Motion Hobart On Murray undertook a three day Clinical Pilates course run by physiotherapist Craig Phillips from DMA Clinical Pilates in Melbourne.

Clinical Pilates differs to regular Pilates as it focuses on tailoring a Pilates program which will best address the individual needs of the client. Clinical Pilates often involves a variety of exercises which can be floor-based or use our specialised Pilates equipment, such as the reformer or trapeze table.

Pilates is a fantastic addition to any lifestyle exercise regime as it has multiple benefits including improving movement control, stability, posture as well as core stability.

At Back In Motion each client is offered a Free Initial Assessment with a physio to determine whether Clinical Pilates is appropriate for them. From here they can continue with one on one consults or move into one of our Semi-Private Personal Training or Muscles In Motion classes.

We are excited to be able to offer this service in the practice and have decided to incorporate three general Pilates classes into our timetable. These classes will be suited for anyone who would like to integrate Pilates into their life and who doesn’t necessarily have any musculoskeletal problems.
