We're still on course for a July reopening and we've been incredibly busy behind the scenes making preparations for your return. We can assure you that we will be the cleanest gym in London! While we wait for direction from the government, we have some solid plans in place and if you're feeling uneasy about Sleven's reopening, we would like to reassure you that everything will be OK. While the future is uncertain, we're confident we can provide you with a fantastic training experience.

We have continued the refurbishment of the gym and our big project this week was painting the front. We've painted over the tired red that marked our entrance for so long with our iconic Sleven deep blue. Expect further updates over the coming weeks as we tackle further jobs.

Assuming a reopening in early July, we are looking ahead to June. Today is day 50 of QUARANTEAM and it marks the beginning of the end for our lifestyle challenge which has helped keep you accountable in so many different ways. In QUARANTEAM'S place, we'll be introducing regularly scheduled Zoom classes which we we'll announce in next week's newsletter. If you are looking to get a bit of momentum and accountability before our grand reopening, these classes will provide the perfect opportunity. We will also be including adhoc challenges in our regular TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN programming to keep things varied and fun. And we'll be continuing with our Friday Night Lights Quiz, to keep you connected with your Sleven friends!

Lastly, expect some exciting news to come out on the nutrition front with our partner pH Nutrition. Liam, Tom and the Sleven team have been hard at work getting a fantastic new product ready for you which we will announce in due course. Further afield, once we have a firm date set for our return, we’re going to run a virtual in-house partner competition.

Love,
Nick, Tim & Loz

QUARANTEAM Round-Up

Today, Day 50, marks the start of the final week of QUARANTEAM! When the challenge has finished in a week's time, we'll be naming the winner who will receive the following prizes:

  • Free month's membership at the end of your current plan and if you're not on a membership, your last month free on a 6 or 12 month 3x per week or unlimited membership
  • Whey’d prize package

We'll be doing things slightly differently this week: there will be no weekly challenge, instead, we'll have an additional daily challenge. So many of you have taken part in our 7 Day Song Challenge and it was great to see some country music entries for songs that reminded you of Sleven!

We have moved Partner WOD Saturday to 10:00 so that you don't have to workout having just eaten! Hopefully, this new time might get a few more of you WODing but also get you involved in our second edition of our Cook Along with Tom!

This week we've chosen a brunch favourite: smoky mushroom frittata! If you're following a low carb diet or looking to up your protein intake, this simple recipe is for you. To help you fit your macros, you can easily serve with toast or crusty bread to up the carb content. If you need to cut down the fat in the recipe, you can make some easy substitions: turkey bacon, egg whites and light cheese.

Directions: Serves Four

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C.
  2. Slice the bacon and fry in a 26cm non-stick ovenproof frying pan on medium heat for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add the mushroom, tearing up any larger ones until golden brown.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Lightly beat the eggs, then pour into the pan and bomb over nuggets of cheese.
  6. Transfer to the oven for 10 minutes.
  7. Once set, loosen the edges with a spatula, transfer to a board, dress it with some rocket and serve!

Dedicated to U.S. Sgt. Zachary D. Tellier, 31, of Charlotte, NC (USA) a combat infantryman with the 4th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, at Fort Bragg. He died Sept. 29, 2007, of wounds sustained while on a ground patrol in Afghanistan.

The previous April, Tellier’s unit was conducting a mounted patrol when one of its vehicles drove over and detonated a bomb, which set the vehicle on fire, according to a statement from the 82nd Airborne.Tellier pulled two paratroopers out of the vehicle to safety, suffering severe burns to his hands. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with valor for his actions. After he was burned, Tellier jumped up in the turret to return fire, said Sgt. Michael Layton, a member of Tellier’s unit. A lieutenant made Tellier get out of the vehicle because of his injuries, Layton said.

“Zachary Tellier has to be the biggest hero I’ve ever known or heard of, not just because of what he did, but because of his personality,” Layton said. “He came in the Army because he wanted to be around soldiers and serve his country, and he paid the ultimate sacrifice.” Tellier is survived by his wife, Sara Tellier of Atlanta, Ga.; his father, David W. Tellier of Groton, Mass.; and his mother, Pamela Rodriguez, of Falmouth, Mass.

Coach Jamie will be hosting a Zoom session at 11:00 on Sunday 24 May with an appropriate warm-up, scaling options and strategies. We'll be posting demo videos on Saturday night too!

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!

We invite anyone and everyone to start getting involved again whether you’ve done nothing for two months or you’ve been as active as QUARANTEAM winner Niall! Each session will start with a warm-up, SUCCESSORIES and the WFH and last an hour.
