SLEVEN XMAS Extravaganza

907de33d cc85 41b2 be88 110ac1c38602

Remember, the venue has changed for the Christmas meal! We will now be luncheoning at the Blues Kitchen Shoreditch before getting Uber'd at no extra cost to you, to our original venue, The Old Queen's Head.

Check out the updated schedule below!

6260e020 cd91 473c a606 9901bf8a535e

If you didn't buy a ticket for the party but would like to come for a drink(s), you're more than welcome to come after 18:00 and join in on the festivities at our original venue, The Old Queen's Head. If you'd like to come earlier, please feel free to come for the year in review and awards ceremony from 16:30 at the Blues Kitchen Shoreditch.

Please note, all classes have been cancelled on the 15th of December. Being the day after the Xmas party and a long week of testing, we've decided to give both athletes and coaches a well earned break!

We're excited to introduce MetCon Burn, our new 45 minute fat torching, heart exploding class to the schedule. The class will start on Monday, 6th of January at 12:00 and will run weekdays allowing you to pop out and get back to your desk before your boss even notices!

We are also adding the below flexible and great value MetCon Membership options:
Single class £10
Three class pack £25
13 class pack (3 free classes!) £100
Do you have a friend or loved one who is interested in CrossFit but has never taken the plunge? MetCon is a fantastic way to get them involved without the more technical aspects of CrossFit to get in the way of their 2020 goals. You can bring a friend along to any MetCon class completely free! All you have to do is email us beforehand.

January is around the corner and it's the perfect way to pique their interest!

One for Sleven's ladies! If you enjoyed the SLEVEN STRENGTH SPECIAL with Sarah, you'll have another opportunity to benefit from her coaching at the Strong Girls Club on Sunday 12 January.  This is an afternoon of lifting and learning at Sleven with a group of other strong girls. You'll get getting coaching from Sarah on your lifts, technique and training.

Sarah will be joined by Linn Mayhew. Both Sarah and Linn compete internationally at Masters level, and have competed at English National level. Linn is a BWL 1 Coach who has medalled at several international competitions, Sarah is a BWL 2 Coach and Technical Official. Both have a wealth of experience of coaching all levels of weighlifter.

On the day, you'll spend three hours learning and practising some specific exercises for the Snatch and Clean & Jerk, as well as covering some of the theory behind the lifts. You'll then receive specific, individual coaching on your own lifts from Sarah and Linn, in a relaxed and supportive environment. 

The workshop will cover some common problems with both lifts, and how to solve those using specific drills. You'll also get to practise exercises to help with anything that’s holding you back in your lifting, so you’ll have your own exercises and drills to take away and work on after the workshop.

The workshop is suitable for all levels, whether you are a CrossFitter, a weightlifter or simply curious to give weighlifting a go. This event is open to the public so if you have a friend who you think would like to join you, send them a link to get booking.

We love that there are so many strong girls getting into lifting, and we’re excited about holding the Strong Girls Club at Sleven!

MetCon Outdoors

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.

When will SLEVEN Reopen?

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.

Welcome to SLEVEN Fitness

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!
