After the success of the Home Alone Open, where we had over 40 Sleveners sign-up, we've been keeping tabs on competitions and initiatives to keep your competitive juices flowing and we've found just the one for you!

The European Championships is offering a FREE online competition which we will be integrating into our Bodyweight and Bells programming for TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN on Wednesdays. WODs will be released on Mondays for a total of three weeks and three workouts. You don't need any kit if you want to participate in the Bodyweight workouts and all you need for Bells is a 22.5/15 kg dumbbell and a skipping rope!

To sign-up for the competition, all you have to do is click on the below button. Coach Emma will be running a Zoom class on Wednesdays at 18:30 for those wanting a bit of support getting into that "dark place". The session will include a warm-up, strategies and a demonstration of movement standards.

Week 5 of QUARANTEAM starts today and with the weather taking a sharp turn for the worse, the running task ended just in time! We have a new weekly task - we're giving something up!

Much has been written in the media about the numbers of people drinking more alcohol and overindulging on unhealthy snacks and fizzy drinks. Or perhaps you've found yourself drinking huge amounts of coffee! Let’s use the next week to take a break and to try and establish new habits for the remainder of the lockdown period.

Not only did Niall Sheehy and Andy Ward continue their QUARANTEAM kitchen war but they are now both sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard! This week, they had a crack at our black bean breakfast tortilla recipe. We're delighted with their involvement including their reposts on Instagram. Please make sure you tag us in anything QUARANTEAM related, it's a great way to keep everyone in touch and see what our Sleven family is up to!

Smoothie Saturday is quickly becoming part of many Sleveners' weekly routine! Not only do you get to try out a new recipe but chat with nutritionist Tom on the hot topics of the week. Come with questions or just have a listen and we bet you'll leave the chat feeling a bit more connected to your fellow Sleveners and hopefully having learned something too.

This week's recipe is Cherry Bakewell! Cherries are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds which may help relieve exercise-induced muscle pain, damage, and inflammation. Coupled with almonds, which contain lots of healthy fats, fiber, magnesium and vitamin E, this is not only a classic flavour combination but a nutritional powerhouse!

After the success of Captain Tom last week, we thought we'd treat you to a Hero WOD every Sunday! This week we're taking on "Loredo", 

U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Edwardo Loredo, 34, of Houston, Texas, assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, based in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, was killed on June 24, 2010 in Jelewar, Afghanistan, when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. He is survived by his wife, First Sergeant Jennifer Loredo; his daughter, Laura Isabelle; his stepdaughter, Alexis; and his son, Eduardo Enrique.

There are enough movements (and low enough volume per set) in “Loredo” to avoid any major muscle fatigue. Pick a strong pace from the beginning, and go faster as the rounds progress. Round 6 should be a sprint!

Coach Jamie will be hosting a Zoom session at 11:00 with an appropriate warm-up, scaling options and strategies.

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.
