SLEVEN Newsletter 12 January 2020

New Year, New SLEVEN!

We hope all our members had a lovely Christmas and New Year. 2019 was a massive year for us and we'd like you all to know that we're just getting started! We're ready to have a stellar 2020 and eager to tell you about all of our exciting developments.

We recently announced our new partnership with pH Nutrition and we're pleased to bring you further updates on this. After the holiday period, nutrition is at the forefront of most of our minds. We'll be kicking off a nutrition challenge run through Wodify Rise on February 1st. To get the ball rolling, we are holding a nutrition seminar next Saturday, 18th January at 13:00 after Strength and this is free to all members and friends of Sleven!

There are several purposes for the seminar. Firstly, it's a chance for us to introduce you to Liam and why we chose pH Nutrition. We will also be introducing you to Tom McClure, who will be our on-site nutrition coach. Importanlty, Tom is a CrossFitter and you'll soon see him working out alongside you! He is highly experienced working in the industry as a Personal Trainer, CrossFit Coach and now a qualified Sport Nutritionist. Tom has provided nutrition coaching for a range of athletes, including members of Team GB Special Olympics squad, Colchester United FC, Northampton Saints Rugby Academy and Saracens Rugby Academy players.

Secondly, it's an opportunity for us to answer any questions you may have regarding nutrition. Topics we'll be covering include:

  • Principles of nutrition for CrossFit
  • Timing of nutrition around training
  • Practical advice for fat loss and muscle gain
  • Nutrition for weightlifting, endurance and gymnastics
  • How to fuel before, during and after competitions

If you have a question that you would like to ask, please email us below and we'll be sure to include it in the seminar.

Email us your questions!

Support Australia Fundraiser

The world has been watching aghast at the terrible bush fires raging in Australia this past month. No more than Coach Loren whose family and friends are directly affected by this terrible tragedy. In an attempt to help, Sleven will be running a charity fundraiser on Sunday 26th January at 11:00, which is also Australia Day!

The class is free but we'll be asking all attendees to please donate a minimum £10 to the below bank account in support of the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army in Australia has been on hand providing immediate practical assistance and emotional support to people fleeing their homes from the devastating bushfires as well as supporting irefighters in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, which are the hardest hit states.

The Salvation Army's support work has included prescence at a lage number of evacuation centres whee it has provided food for several hundred people, including fire-fighters. In other areas, The Salvation Army is providing material aid in relief centres, including mattresses, bedding, and personal hygiene items. It has already begun supporting the long-term recovery effort in communities across Queensland and Western Australia.

January is here and it's the perfect way to get them back into fitness!
Last year's Yoga for CrossFit Workshop with Liz was a massive success! So much so, we've added a new class to the schedule on the first Sunday of each month.

Liz, herself a CrossFitter,  has deivsed a Yoga Workshop where you will learn the best yoga poses and movements to enhance your range of motion, strength and stability. This class will be ideal for you if you struggle with your mobility or find it difficult getting into certain positions in the gym!

The class is available to all members including Elements. The class is available for booking in Wodify NOW! If you don't see the class on your app, please make sure you select the new program: Yoga for CrossFit.

Priority Waitlist is Here! We spent over a year badgering Wodify to introduce one and finally, they have acted! As of 22:31 tonight, we will be switching on the Priority Waitlist. This will automatically move you from the waitlist into the class when a space becomes available in the order that you were added to the waitlist. You will also receive an email notifying you of your reservation with the option to cancel. This means no more trading (yes, we know this goes on!) and no waiting anxiously for a spot to free up and rushing to book in. We feel that this will provide a much fairer system and a waitlist that actually reflects demand.
