Your Weekly Dose of SLEVEN

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.

What about the 8-hour late hour cancellation window? Automatically putting you in the class right before it starts isn’t a great experience, so the system won't work that way. Instead, all members on the waitlist will receive an email notifying them that a space has become available and the first to reply will get in to the class - exactly the way it works right now.

Some Points To Note

  • If you are first on the waitlist, you have a high possibility of attending a class. This means you are responsible for freeing up your spot if you do not think you will attend.
  • Please be courteous to other members and if you know you won't be able to attend a class that you are on the waitlist for or reserved into, please cancel at your earliest convenience to allow other members the opportunity of getting a place - do not wait until the last second to cancel so as to avoid a charge.
  • Further to this point, there are lots of cancellations immediately prior the 8-hour cancellation window and if you do not wish to be promoted from the waitlist, it is your responsibility to remove yourself from the waitlist. Our late cancellation and no-show fees are still in effect.
  • The cut-off is 22:30 for the 06:30 morning class, including Open Gym, so if you go to bed before 22:30 and do not intend on attending, make sure you remove yourself from the waitlist.

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.

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!
