Good evening team, I hope you've all enjoyed your weekends. A couple of things for you this evening before Programming. First of all, the deadline to enter the Winter Throwdown next Saturday has now expired, we have loads of teams confirmed so it should be good fun.

Andy's Story

Thursday 8th February 2018

"My lifestyle has changed drastically over the last few years. I have gone from being 23 stone, smoking 30 a day and binge drinking every weekend down to 15 stone and nearly tea total.....except for special occasions.

Good evening team, I hope you've all had great weekends. Two lots of congratulations due, the first is to Ellie Nichol who competed in the British Champs and finished 10th out of 14.

Amazing work Ellie and we are all very proud of you and how far you've come with your lifting. Keep up the good work. My second congrats goes to Neil (Hedders) and Jake who competed in a 15km Ski Erg race with a couple of guys from Fort…

Weekly Bulletin / Programming-HAPPY NEW YEAR

Monday 1st January 2018

Good evening team, I hope you've all had an amazing Christmas and New Year. Im going to keep this relatively short as Im sending out a Newsletter tomorrow with lots of exciting news for you all. Quick reminder that Wednesdays 7:30pm Class is now a Weightlifting Class, as we do on a Sunday. Im looking forward to seeing how this goes, hopefully its popular, it means that by having the 2 weightlifting sessions each week we get the opportunity to work both the Clean and Jerk and Snatch in the same week. Programming for this week is going to be a little different to normal. We are going to do a little bit of testing to see…
