Competition Nutrition

There is a little less than a week left in our nutrition challenge and we are only getting started! Next week we will be announcing the winners and also details of our new exclusive Sleven pH Nutrition packages that will run year long. You can expect lots of regular content and information so all your hard work in the gym doesn't go to waste in the kitchen!

We're already receiving some fantastic feedback from Sleveners taking part and we're happy to get so many of you tracking your food, changing habits and educating you for life.

Competition season is nearly upon us and with the Yard Games, Summer Social, Battle for Middle Ground and Rainhill on the horizon, nutrition should be at the forefront of your minds. Liam and Tom have created a fantastic PDF full of information to ensure you're fuelled and performing at your best!

Victory Grips Order

Since we introduced Victory Grips to the Sleven Shop, our members have been ripping significantly less and as a result, their training has benefitted markedly. The success of the Victory Grips has meant that we are now running low on stock and we will be making a new order on Monday 2 March.

We will be ordering the standard three finger Stealth grips in varying sizes for both men and women. However, Victory Grips have a myriad of options and if you would like a pair of grips in a different style, please check out their website on the button below and email us with the style, size, colour and any other feature we may need for ordering these on your behalf. If you are unsure about sizing, we are on hand in the shop all week to measure and advise you on the best grips for you.

Grips cost £50 and the new Tactical grips cost £55 and we will invoice you via Wodify or ring you up on Shopify. All shipping costs, taxes and fees will be taken care of, phew!

Support Poppy's Half Marathon

Our MetCon Queen, Poppy Harrison is running her first half-marathon in Bath on 15 March in support of Dorothy House Foundation! This amazing charity provides palliative and end of life care to those living with life-limiting illness. The Dorothy House Foundation is close to Poppy's heart having impacted so many people's lives in Bath and she knows two very special people who work for the Charity.

Poppy is now over half way to her target of £300 and would appreciate any donation, big or small!

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 6 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!
