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

757345ce 61ae 4202 8f48 de2c90e87c58

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!

SLEVEN Super Saturday

a9344a73 1862 4480 94c9 f73f4c5503f1

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!

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!

MetCon Outdoors

The decision by the Government not to allow gyms and leisure centres to open on 4 July was pretty disappointing. But we’re not going to let that get us down! We’ll be introducing some outdoor MetCon classes for you from Monday 29 June. These classes will be available only to paying members on monthly memberships. Due to limited capacity, we will not be allowing new members to join at this time.

When will SLEVEN Reopen?

A number of members have been asking this question, especially as some gyms have begun to announce their planned reopening dates. We wish that we had some concrete news for you, with a date for opening our doors again. We’re hoping that it will be in July but, frustratingly, the Government has given no further indication nor any information on the restrictions, if any, on how we’ll be operating when that happens.

Welcome to SLEVEN Fitness

It’s been a rollercoaster week to say the least! We announced on Monday that we were to disaffiliate from CrossFit and we remain steadfast in this decision. Last night, CrossFit HQ announced that Greg Glassman Retired and that Dave Castro is to assume the role of CEO of the company. CrossFit HQ also published a long letter explaining why they didn’t just say something. Nick, Tim & Loz have been involved in CrossFit for a minimum of 9 years each and not only was it our passion, but also a livelihood, so it’s sad to sever our links in this way. We are not ones to dwell on the past and the future for us is not CrossFit, it’s SLEVEN!
