Sunday 7th April 2019

Good morning guys I hope you're all enjoying the weekend. Quick reminder that every Friday we have 'Fiver Friday' which means anybody can rock up to any of the classes and pay £5 to join in. There is no booking required, they don't need to come with anyone they can literally just rock up and train. If you think you know of anybody that may be interested then let them know. I've got a board up in the gym for anybody wanting to enter the comp at the end of the month. Got a few male teams in the mix but no females yet.

Weekly Bulletin / Programming- Social Update!!

Sunday 31st March 2019

Good morning GB'ers. As you all know we are doing an 'Easter Throwdown' on Saturday 20th April, on the evening we are also going to be doing a Gym Social. Its been a while since the last night out so its definitely overdue.

Sunday you rest up, eat lots of easter eggs and then Monday you hit the Bank holiday Wod. You will not get a better bank holiday than that!! I want to try and get as many of you as possible involved in both the…

Sunday 17th March 2019

Good morning guys. Want to kick this off by saying what a great day we had last Sunday on our 'Outside The Box' adventure climbing Pen Y Fan, it was awesome. Be sure to get involved in our next activity which I will be announcing over the next couple of weeks. If anybody has any ideas feel free to drop me a message. Programming is below guys. Please don't ever be put off coming to a class because you don't think you'll be able to do the workout. Every single workout is fully scalable so there shouldn't be a single session you should avoid, that includes the open wods. We aren't going to…

Happy Sunday folks, there will be a fair few of us currently climbing Pen Y Fan for our first of the 'Outside the box' series. Every 6-8 weeks I am going to organise an activity that involves some form of exercise not in the gym. This time we are completing an 8 mile hike of Pen Y Fan and I've got some great ideas for future events so be sure to get involved. We are approaching the end of this years CrossFit Open which means while you guys are still in comp mode I thought I'd organise an in-house comp for all abilities for the end of April. I will release more details over the next…
