Weekly Bulletin / Programming

Sunday 29th September 2019

Good morning GB'ers. Attached is a picture of the updated timetable that I am going to be trialling from Monday the 7th October. Having closely analysed the results from the survey you did a while back and class attendances this year I am working towards building a timetable better suited to the majority. I have a lot of exciting plans for the gym and over time will be implementing these but for now I have moved the Fridays Teens Class to a Thursday and replaced it with a 4:30pm Adults class. I have then removed the 7:30pm Class from Friday as its always very quiet so the gym will now close at 7:30pm on a Friday. Loads of requests for the Saturday class to move back so on a Saturday the Gym will be open from 9am to 11am with a class at 9am and on Sunday it will be 9am to 11am with the weightlifting class at 9am. If you want to come in earlier to train on those days you may do so by signing out the key.

These changes are by no means permanent, I am going to to trial them for a while and then re assess in a couple of months to see if they have made much of a difference. These are all things that have been suggested by you guys so I'm sure they will be welcomed.

If anybody has any questions or queries don't hesitate to contact me direct to discuss.

Many thanks.

Each set should be unbroken but as heavy as possible. You may add weight for the planks if possible. For the EMOM you will get most of your rest after your TTB, you won't get much between the run and burpees, just enough for the transitions. Scale reps is required, aiming to work for no more than 45s on each.
