January has come and gone and for many of you, those New Year's resolutions might already be in the distant past! Goals should be made to keep and our workshop will help you set achievable goals in the short, medium and long term.

This Saturday, after Strength, our lovely member Sophie Fielding is holding a goal setting workshop sponsored by Lululemon. We will provide the materials so all you need to bring is an open mind and some goals to share!

The Workshop is free for members and non-members alike but please book in via Wodify so we get an idea of numbers. You will be splitting off into little groups, sharing ideas, goals and ways to actually achieve those goals!
 

This Saturday after STRENGTH at 13:00-14:30

Valentine's Day FNL

6c29e84f 9e8c 4a0f bd7b c9c05532a8c0

Oh, Valentine's Day: the holiday that reminds you that if you don't have a special someone, you're alone. Luckily for you, that needn't be the case!

There's no extra cost, just book in Wodify. We have programmed three romantic WODs just for you and that lucky someone!

If you already have a partner who's not a member, bring them along! No FNL would be complete without a visit to Nando's so we've even got you covered for the romantic dinner.

In addition to participating in amazing activities such as paddle boarding, surfing, hiking at sunset, yoga and wine tasting, you'll have the opportunity to CrossFit daily with your mates! 

You can find all the information below. We'll start a conversation on the Facebook group and get Liz involved so she can answer any of your questions and group the people that are interested together.

In November, over 20 Sleveners made their way to Peckham to compete at the Yard Games and had a brilliant time. If you missed out, you're in luck! The Yard is hosting its second one day, same-sex pairs competion. Coach Loz has already recruited over 5 teams and we're hoping for more sign-ups in what is looking like another great day out for Sleven.

The competition is super local which means NO TRAVELLING and it is likely to be a relatively small comp, so if you haven’t competed before, this would be a great opportunity to get a taste of what it’s like on the competition floor.

Given that it’s so close, we’ll no doubt have a good number of Sleven supporters there to cheer you on. So, grab a partner and register using the link below!

If you're interested but don't have a partner, don't worry! Email Coach Loz or grab one of us and let us know you’re interested and we’ll do our best to find you an ace partner.

Summer Social

e6230ede 2e7a 43fd b5dd c8dfc240fab2

Does the Yard Games sound too intense for you? There is another local comp called Summer Social in Richmond, just a short train ride from Sleven on May 30. The comp includes a massive beer garden, with crazy good food, awesome DJ's and one hell of an after-party! Sleven already has two mixed teams of 4 entered and we're keen to get more members involved.

We've seen many other boxes get huge turnouts for this competition and with it being held in May, it'll be warm out which will mean there'll be lots of "taps aff!" This is not a "serious" competition, it's more about throwing down then having a few beers after. There's tons of other events on during the day so it ends up being a huge party.

All you have to do to enter is find 3 friends (mixed teams of 4, 2 girls and 2 guys) and sign up! We currently have two girls looking for two boys to make up a team so if you're keen, email Coach Loz or grab one of us and let us know you’re interested and we’ll do our best to find you a team.

The one you want to sign-up for is called "Throwdown" even though the dodgeball looks like fun too!

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!
