Your Weekly Dose of SLEVEN

More ELEMENTS!

You've asked and you have received! For those newer members, you now have more Elements classes on the schedule:

Thursdays: 07:30-08:30 (starts Feb 20)
Mondays-Thursdays: 12:45-13:45

This allows those of you who prefer the mornings or lunch to work on those tekkers!

January has come and gone and for many of you, those New Year's resolutions might already be in the distant past! Goals should be made to keep and our workshop will help you set achievable goals in the short, medium and long term.

This Saturday, after Strength, our lovely member Sophie Fielding is holding a goal setting workshop sponsored by Lululemon. We will provide the materials so all you need to bring is an open mind and some goals to share!

The Workshop is free for members and non-members alike but please book in via Wodify so we get an idea of numbers. You will be splitting off into little groups, sharing ideas, goals and ways to actually achieve those goals!
 

This Saturday after STRENGTH at 13:00-14:30

Valentine's Day FNL

Oh, Valentine's Day: the holiday that reminds you that if you don't have a special someone, you're alone. Luckily for you, that needn't be the case!

There's no extra cost, just book in Wodify. We have programmed three romantic WODs just for you and that lucky someone!

If you already have a partner who's not a member, bring them along! No FNL would be complete without a visit to Nando's so we've even got you covered for the romantic dinner.

CrossFit Holidays!?

Are you worried about losing your gains on holiday? Don't want to just lounge by a pool reading books and drinking Margaritas? Coach Liz has a solution for you.

Adventure Fit has locations on three different continents including Croatia, Cape Town and Revelstoke in Canada! In addition to participating in amazing activities such as paddle boarding, surfing, hiking at sunset, yoga and wine tasting, you'll have the opportunity to CrossFit daily with your mates! 

You can find all the information below. We'll start a conversation on the Facebook group and get Liz involved so she can answer any of your questions and group the people that are interested together.

Adventure Fit

In November, over 20 Sleveners made their way to Peckham to compete at the Yard Games and had a brilliant time. If you missed out, you're in luck! The Yard is hosting its second one day, same-sex pairs competion. Coach Loz has already recruited over 5 teams and we're hoping for more sign-ups in what is looking like another great day out for Sleven.

The competition is super local which means NO TRAVELLING and it is likely to be a relatively small comp, so if you haven’t competed before, this would be a great opportunity to get a taste of what it’s like on the competition floor.

Given that it’s so close, we’ll no doubt have a good number of Sleven supporters there to cheer you on. So, grab a partner and register using the link below!

If you're interested but don't have a partner, don't worry! Email Coach Loz or grab one of us and let us know you’re interested and we’ll do our best to find you an ace partner.

Summer Social

Does the Yard Games sound too intense for you? There is another local comp called Summer Social in Richmond, just a short train ride from Sleven on May 30. The comp includes a massive beer garden, with crazy good food, awesome DJ's and one hell of an after-party! Sleven already has two mixed teams of 4 entered and we're keen to get more members involved.

We've seen many other boxes get huge turnouts for this competition and with it being held in May, it'll be warm out which will mean there'll be lots of "taps aff!" This is not a "serious" competition, it's more about throwing down then having a few beers after. There's tons of other events on during the day so it ends up being a huge party.

All you have to do to enter is find 3 friends (mixed teams of 4, 2 girls and 2 guys) and sign up! We currently have two girls looking for two boys to make up a team so if you're keen, email Coach Loz or grab one of us and let us know you’re interested and we’ll do our best to find you a team.

The one you want to sign-up for is called "Throwdown" even though the dodgeball looks like fun too!

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!
