Update on two major changes in the box!
The Showers are now up and running. They’re simple to operate, however if you have a problem please ask a coach. You will need to provide your own towels and shower gel and please make an effort to keep them as tidy as possible after you’ve used them. They will be cleaned by the cleaner with the rest of the box twice a week. If there’s a few people lining up to use them please be as considerate as possible and not spend too long showering . If anybody has any questions or suggestions regarding the showers please just grab Lee or Dave.
The Sunday classes will go live on Sunday 14th February. There will be two classes scheduled, 10am-11am and 11am-12pm. These classes will be ran and coached by Coach Ben Hunt. If you would like to use this time as OPEN GYM and catch up on a weekly WOD/Engine board/Strength or simply do your own thing then this isn’t a problem, however as always the class will take priority for equipment and space and please be considerate.
These changes have come into effect after suggestions were put to the management team by members. Were really happy we can accommodate and bring members requests to fruition. If anybody has any more requests in the future then please approach Lee or Dave and your request will be considered.
Thank you for your patience over the past month after these changes were announced. Massive thanks to Mark Askham for his quality work on the showers, if anybody has any plumbing issues then he is your man!!!
Today is “OPEN GYM” day. The box is open at the usual times, however there are no set classes. Use today to Catch Up on a recent WOD you have missed. Today is an ideal opportunity to come in and practice your Technique, or hit some Strength Training in the lifting section. If you are feeling beat up from the past few days of training, come and get your Stretch on in the Mobility Corner or take a well earned Rest Day 🙂
A new addition to Thursdays “Open Gym” is the “Thursday Beast WOD” (aka “Throw Up Thursdays). This is an endurance based WOD which stays clear of all things technical, it will include things like Running, Rowing & Skiing. You may find yourself also flipping tyres and carrying things, possibly even the occasional trip up “The Hill”.
There are still no set classes on a Thursday, this is just something that you will find on the Whiteboard along with all the other catch up WODs from this week. If this is something you like the sound of then feel free to come in and crack on (there is usually a group doing this at 8:30am & 9:30am, and a couple of groups going for it in the evening). We will be alternating between an Interval style workout and a good old fashioned long Slog on a weekly basis, it will not be posted the night before, so come prepared for all situations
