Going from Strength to STRENGTH 💪
2a8fb517 78aa 4d6f 995e cdeab784e1eb
We are keenly aware of the level of demand for the mid-week 6.30pm and 7.30pm classes generally and, especially, for the Tuesday and Thursday Strength classes. We appreciate the frustration that this has caused and we are pleased to announce steps that we hope will alleviate the issue.

The following changes will take effect from next week:
  • The capacity of the Tuesday and Thursday STRENGTH classes will be increased from 14 to 20. These classes will focus on Olympic lifting and strength work and you will see very little, if any, change in the programming to accommodate this. You all for the most part, work in pairs anyway!
  • The length of the existing 11am class on Saturday will be reduced from 90 minutes to 60 minutes and an additional class will be added to the schedule at midday, adding 14 places. The programming in these classes will focus on barbell cycling and SWODs to a greater extent than the midweek classes. Get ready to throw around some heavy shit!
We have introduced lunchtime Elements classes and looking to add morning Elements to the schedule with a view to bringing in new members who are more likely to train at those times and avoid adding further demand for the already scarce places for midweek evening classes.

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!
