LimbPower’s Prepare to Move and Prepare to Run workshops held through August and September were a resounding success, with 32 limb different participants receiving bespoke coaching and training programmes. The feedback from attendees was amazing, with one participant saying, "In a year and a half with blades, I've learned more in these few hours than any club was able to teach me”, while another expressed gratitude, stating, “Coordination and balance is a challenge, I have learnt to be more intentional with my movement.
