Your Weekly Dose of SLEVEN

COVID-19 Updates & FAQ

If you missed our mailers this week, we sent out an updated COVID-19 Measures on Monday and an informative FAQ yesterday. Catch up if you've been out of the loop!

Home Workouts

In the event that we have to close the gym, we will post daily programmes for our members to do at home. 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 programming. There are thousands of gyms and personal trainers posting home workouts. However, we wanted to provide members with a programme that will allow maintenance and development of strength and mobility as well as a conditioning piece.

Our programme will comprise: 

  • SLEVEN Successories: Functional body building style home workouts that will serve as your strength training. Think all the successory stuff we already do but in place of kettlebells, dumbbells and barbells, we will be using bands for resistance. We will film any unusual or technical movements and post to our MetCon programme each day. To get the most out of your training, we recommend getting some bands (we have included a link to some suitable ones below) but if you already have weights or kit at home, you can use those too. We suggest getting a small circle band set and resistance bands. 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!
     
  • WFH: WOD From Home! 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, buy your very own made to measure Sleven branded SGF speed rope at the gym!
Buy Small Circle Resistance Band Set
Buy Resistance Band (Red or Black)

SLEVEN Super Saturday

Due to the ongoing crisis, unfortunately, the Norwegians have had to cancel their travel plans. Further, we have just received news that the Yard Games have been postponed until further notice. So we have downgraded Super Saturday to a regular Saturday! We are conscious that many of you will be eager to train and with the numbers now limited to 10 in a class, we are reducing the MetCon class to 45 minutes and adding a second one to allow more members the opportunity to train.

The classes are available to book on Wodify now!

DUE TO DEMAND ON SATURDAY, WE KINDLY ASK THAT YOU BOOK IN FOR ONLY ONE CLASS TO ALLOW OTHERS A CHANCE TO TRAIN.

Victory Grips are Here!

Since we introduced Victory Grips to the Sleven Shop, you have been ripping significantly less and as a result, your training has benefitted markedly. Many have found the grips to be a revelation! We now have three finger Stealth grips in varying sizes for both men and women in stock which we will measure and fit for you at the gym.

Grips cost £50 and will be a gamechanger for your training!

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!
