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.

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!
