Nutrition Priorities

3c0b37c5b2513acccf85440504746987

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!

In this video, they discuss the hierarchy of importance when it comes to nutrition. As coaches they see a lot of people focusing on the smaller things, when primarily focusing on energy balance and getting that right will give you the most 'bang for your buck' in regards to nutrition and training.

They then move onto food quality and how to ensure you are able to get quality nutrition no matter your budget.

Thirdly, they discuss how your protein/carb/fat ratios are often unique to each individual and how this can require some trial and error to find the balance that works best for you and your lifestyle.

Finally, they discuss the benefits and sometimes tricky things women have to deal with when it comes to training and nutrition around our hormones and also the difference in the training and nutrition needs of males and females. So grab a coffee, sit down for a listen and hopefully you'll take away something useful!

Recipe of the Week

fec1f55a e475 4b30 b4f8 814ba9b3de67

This weeks recipe is quickie! Beans have the reputation of being good for your heart and make you fart! This children's rhyme is not wrong and it's due to beans being a great source of fiber. Fiber helps keep you regular and seems to protect against heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and digestive illness.

Make sure you tag us on Instagarm if you give this one a crack.

Open Prep & Power (Half) Hour

Tomorrow is the first day of our 6 week Open Prep programme! If you missed our announcement last week, you can catch-up here.

There are still a lot of details to be finalised as to how the Open is going to work this year given the different levels of lockdown worldwide (even Dave Castro’s 15 minute video on YouTube didn’t really enlighten us as to the finer details as yet). One thing we can assure you is that Sleven will be involved as much as our level of lockdown will allow. As more details come to light, we will keep you informed with the exact details.

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.
