Events and Updates!

Yoga for Athletes, Saturday 12.30-1.30pm

The aim of our weekly yoga class is to complement your training not only by promoting recovery, but also by ensuring that it relates to what you do at the gym – the new programming cycle is now underway, with a strong emphasis on the Olympic lifts. As such, we are going to focus on overhead mobility, as well as a bit of midline strength in this week’s practice, to help you get limber so you’re all set for hitting those new PBs over the coming 5 weeks.


Nutrition Drop-In Clinics

Sinead is still offering up some time slots for you guys to drop in and ask some of those burning nutrition questions you’ve been dying to ask someone. No need to come in with a food diary, and no pressure to signup to a plan afterwards. This is just so you can get to grips with some of your nutrition struggles. Dates are up on the poster next to the whiteboard, and also as follows for this month :

September:
Thurs: 20th 5-7pm

October:
Tues: 2nd 5-7pm
Thurs:18th 4-6pm
