One for Sleven's ladies! If you enjoyed last week's 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!
