The decision by the Government not to allow gyms and leisure centres to open on 4 July was pretty disappointing. But we’re not going to let that get us down! We’ll be introducing some outdoor MetCon classes for you from Monday 29 June. These classes will be available only to paying members on monthly memberships. Due to limited capacity, we will not be allowing new members to join at this time.
SOME IMPORTANT STUFF
Sleven Crossfit Blog
In this week’s video, Coaches Jamie & Tom discuss the role of supplements as part of a nutrition and training programme, including the benefits of various supplements and when they should be used.
A number of members have been asking this question, especially as some gyms have begun to announce their planned reopening dates. We wish that we had some concrete news for you, with a date for opening our doors again. We’re hoping that it will be in July but, frustratingly, the Government has given no further indication nor any information on the restrictions, if any, on how we’ll be operating when that happens.
Coaches Loz & Tom discuss sorting your priorities when it comes to nutrition and making sure you put an emphasis on the important things, so you aren’t wasting our precious time and energy on things that aren’t going to give you results!
It’s been a rollercoaster week to say the least! We announced on Monday that we were to disaffiliate from CrossFit and we remain steadfast in this decision.
Last night, CrossFit HQ announced that Greg Glassman Retired and that Dave Castro is to assume the role of CEO of the company. CrossFit HQ also published a long letter explaining why they didn’t just say something. Nick, Tim & Loz have been involved in CrossFit for a minimum of 9 years each and not only was it our passion, but also a livelihood, so it’s sad to sever our links in this way.
We are not ones to dwell on the past and the future for us is not CrossFit, it’s SLEVEN!
In this video, Tom discusses nutrition for running. With our running club in full swing, Tom covers pre-workout fuel, post workout fuel, hydration, intra-workout nutrition and when to run!
Our regularly scheduled TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN classes have been a resounding success! It’s great to see so many of you get involved and we’d love to see more of you! Initially, we’re starting with one class a day to assess demand and we’ll take it from there.
We invite anyone and everyone to start getting involved again whether you’ve done nothing for two months or you’ve been as active as QUARANTEAM winner Niall! Each session will start with a warm-up, SUCCESSORIES and the WFH and last an hour.
Another intake of our six week personalised nutrition program is open! If you’ve let things slip a little bit this quarantine then this is a great opportunity to help you get back on track. If you pair this with our TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN coached classes which start this week, we can help keep you accountable in both fitness and nutrition. Use the extra time you find you have as a result of the lockdown to develop good habits that will last well beyond quarantine.
QUARANTEAM is a wrap! When we began the challenge eight weeks ago, on 1 April, we really had no idea how long it would continue, although we didn’t anticipate that we’d be QUARANTEAMING for 56 days!
We launched the challenge in the belief that the best chance for us all to remain happy, fit and healthy through an extended and indeterminate period of confinement would be by helping and supporting each other and getting through it together. It’s been fantastic to see so many of you getting involved on a daily basis and using activities such as our Zoom classes, Friday Night Lights Quiz and Smoothie Saturday/Cook Along With Tom to remain engaged and keep in touch with us and with each other. We hope that participating in the challenge has helped you during this unprecedented interruption of our daily lives and we’d like to thank each of you for getting involved and making it such a rewarding challenge.
Just a reminder that partner WOD Saturday is now EARLIER at 10:00. This gives you the opportunity to get your WOD in before the Cook Along with Tom. Also, there is no need to partner up with someone beforehand, we will do that for you!
We’re going Asian this week with a simple, yet delicious stir-fry! Jamie’s Quick Steak Stir Fry is high in protein and low in carbs so if you’re following up your training session with this meal we recommend you add a carb source such as rice or noodles. If you’re not into red meat, you can always sub it out with chicken or if you’re a veggie, tofu!
