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…

A lot of us are probably an hour in on our Marathon Rows for the Ben Millard charity event when this post goes out, but if you're not currently rowing and reading this post come on up to cheer us on and have a piece of cake (£1 each all proceeds going to Charity). Before I leave you to enjoy the rest of your weekends I wanted to take this opportunity to let you guys know what's going to happen with regards to Laura's classes.

Good morning all, I hope the weekend has been good to you. Want to kick off this newsletter by congratulating Ellie on smashing her Weightlifting comp last week. Ellie hit a 70kg snatch for a 5kg comp PB and and a massive 84kg clean and jerk for a PB. This is a 154kg total giving her a 6th place overall finish with only one lady snatching more than her. Fantastic work Els, keep up the good work. Next week is the Charity Wod, the plan is to get started by 9:00am so will need to be at the gym a little bit before. Anybody that is bringing a rower down if you could try…

Good morning all, I hope you've all had a lovely weekend (so far). Amazing response with regards to the Charity event on the 3rd Feb, Im mega keen to try and get as much money as we can for this amazing cause. As mentioned before it will be a minimum contribution of £10 per person to be paid on the day. In addition I was going to do a Cake sale so if we have any bakers that would be able to whip something up for us that would be ace. I will then get everybody who has a cake to pay £1 each and that should give us a bit extra. I've attached the…

Happy Sunday guys, I hope you are feeling refreshed and back into a bit of routine after the Xmas break. I am really pleased that we had a load of interest in the Charity event we are going to be running on Sunday the 3rd Feb.

When I read Bens story I had to get involved so spoke to the guys at Bath and we decided to run the same event. Read Bens story HERE In teams of 2,3 or…
