COVID-19 FAQ

COVID-19 FAQ

FAQ

We announced updated measures yesterday in an effort to minimise the risk of Coronavirus at Sleven. If you missed it, you can read that here.

We appreciate that there's huge uncertainty at the moment and so we've compiled an FAQ to try and address some of the questions that you may have. 

Will you be closing?

We are committed to staying open and ensuring the least amount of impact on your training as possible. We're keeping a close eye on government guidance so far as Coronavirus is concerned and we will continue to refine our approach and make regular updates to all members.

There are two scenarios which could change that:
  1. We are forced to close by the government or other appropriate body.
  2. A time comes where we see no other reasonable option to safeguard the health of our members and staff.

Will you be posting home workouts?

In the event that we close, we'll posting daily home programmes for our members. At the moment, we are working tirelessly running classes, writing up class programming and, crucially, cleaning the gym round the clock.

If we see a major increase in the number of our members self-isolating, or the situation changes, we may bring forward the posting of home workouts. We are keenly aware that there are a MILLION home WODs online. However, we want a programme that you can follow daily and see improvements in your strength, fitness and mobility.

As such, we have devised the following blueprint for a programme: 
  • Successories: Functional body building style home workouts that will serve as your strength training. Think all the successory stuff we already do but we sub in bands. We will film the movements and post to our MetCon programme daily. Having the below two band sets will be a pre-requisite but if you have weights or kit at home, you can always sub those in too. We have included links below to a hip circle band set and resistance bands you can buy off Amazon. If you only buy one resistance band, we recommend red or black as this will be the most versatile. We recommend buying these bands or similar online NOW so you when we're all in isolation, you don't miss out on the gains!
     
  • WOD: We will post a daily home WOD with little kit. We're going to get good at push-ups, air squats, burpees and sit-ups! Make sure you have your skipping rope at home as we will be including dubs in these workouts. If you don't have one yet, we sell Sleven branded SGF speed ropes at the gym!
Buy Small Circle Resistance Band Set
Buy Resistance Band (Red or Black)

Can I freeze my membership?

If we close the gym or you are unable to attend the gym because of illness or self-isolation, then we will freeze your membership. There will be no fee charged for doing so. Email us and we will freeze your membership for the duration of this crisis.

Can I continue to pay my membership?

In short, yes! We are committed to providing value for our members even in the event that the gym is closed for a spell - we won't be disappearing! We have outlined our plans to post daily, Sleven-specific programmes for you to do at home and we will, of course, be on-hand and available via both email and social media to respond to any questions that you may have. We will also be providing other information, such as nutrition advice in conjunction with our partners, pH Nutrition, to help address what, for many, will be unique and challenging conditions. We hope that as many of our members as possible will continue to support us in order to give Sleven the best chance of bouncing back when the current crisis abates.

To continue paying your fees if we close, please let us know you would like to opt-in by clicking on the below button.

What should I be eating if I'm self-isolating?

First things first, the principles do not change. You still need to eat nutrient dense foods in the right amounts for your goal. Do not think you need to start doing something weird and wonderful!

Maybe you need to lower the amount of calories you are consuming due to the reduction in movement and intensity of training but other than that you shouldn’t be stressing about much else.

To find out how much you should be eating you can use the pH Nutrition Calorie Calculator!

Your Weekly Nutrition Roundup

Just a reminder that partner WOD Saturday is now EARLIER at 10:00. This gives you the opportunity to get your WOD in before the Cook Along with Tom. Also, there is no need to partner up with someone beforehand, we will do that for you! We’re going Asian this week with a simple, yet delicious stir-fry! Jamie’s Quick Steak Stir Fry is high in protein and low in carbs so if you’re following up your training session with this meal we recommend you add a carb source such as rice or noodles. If you’re not into red meat, you can always sub it out with chicken or if you’re a veggie, tofu!

QUARANTEAM: Week 7

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.

Your Weekly Nutrition Roundup

For this week’s Cook Along with Tom, 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.

QUARANTEAM: Week 6

Let’s be honest here, lockdown is beginning to drag! We’ve not only noticed this ourselves, personally, but in the enthusiasm and engagement of the membership and it’s completely expected. The days seem to merge together, any novelty has worn off and we’re all craving social interaction, outdoor activities and especially, getting back to the gym! We’ve reached out to every member personally and we’re seeing a common trend: either work has become exponentially busier, as the business you’re in switches online, or you have nothing to do! We worry mostly about those of you with nothing to do so please do reach out to us if you are feeling hopeless,lonely or fancy a chat. We are here to help!

QUARANTEAM: Week 5

Yesterday, we received a payout for CrossFit HQs “Support Your Local Box” competition and we’d like to send out a massive heartfelt thank you! Not only was it a fun weekly competition with so many of you participating, many of you found some spare funds at a tough economic time which shows the strength of our community! Needless to say, we can’t wait to be back and we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes to make your return and experience at Sleven the best it can possibly be!
