Updates and Announcements
From Weekly to Monthly
If you missed the note in the previous weekly email, we have decided to discontinue the weekly email to make it a monthly newsletter! We wan’t to give you much more content and also we have a few cool ideas that will involve our members more like highlighting how you use your fitness and outside of the gym. Expect to receive the first Email on the 31st July!
For all things programming and training you can still find everything you need on our Blog!
New T-Shirts Are Finally In!
After a few issues with the printing of the new T-Shirts they are finally in and on sale at the Pro-Shop. They are selling quite quickly so make sure you make your way into the gym and get one fast! If you miss out on the opportunity this time around we are expecting more in the next 2 to 3 weeks.
Clean up After Yourself!
The mobility area is for everyone to use and share, but recently there have been quite a few days where there are spare foam rollers, lacrosse balls and resistance bands that are being left out. We want to keep our gym clean and safe, so if you take something out make sure you get it back away after!
As there has been an increased number in the amount of bikes that are piling up in the gym, we are asking all of our cyclists to please lock up their bikes outside of the gym. There are poles for bike storage near the Tune hotel that are free for parking. This is more for your safety and the safety of your bikes as well!
We have noticed some of you have started to use the Nocco fridge for storing your food and to chill your protein shakes. The Fridge is only to be used for storing the Drinks and snacks that we have on sale for you and nothing else. Please refrain from putting anything in there.
Ladies That Lift – Clothes Swap on Sunday 29th July from 1pm to 3pm
Calling all ladies! Coach Miller is organising a little event for you to get rid of some of your old gear in exchange for some slightly used new gear! Dig into your closets and bring all those items you know you’ll never wear, and while you’re at it bring some nibbles and treats to make a chill event out of it!
CrossFit Games Screening – Saturday August 4th, 14:30 to 17:30
A note from Coach Milo:
First off we want to say sorry for missing the ball a little on this one. We will be hosting a games viewing if you want to come down and watch the CF games on a big screen here at the box and we will be doing some WODs from the individual events and from the team events if you can grab a posse together or make one from people down here already !
At the moment we are looking to do the CF total as we know you lot love to bang weights 😛 , however we can put to a group vote on the day pending on what gets released in the coming week for events.
We will also have chilled beer and cider for after cause its hot as fu… outside. 🙂 If you don’t fancy doing the WODs then feel free to come down and watch the carnage on screen and in the gym with beer in hand ! Hope to see you there 🙂 – Milo
Competition Time – Strength in Depth!
How are your legs feeling after giving this workout a go in this past Thursday’s class team? If you missed the chance to throw down with your partner in class you still have until the 5th of August to get it done!
Yoga for Athletes, Saturday 12.30-1.30pm
This week’s Focus: Progressive Muscle Relaxation
This Saturday will be a restorative practice including a progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) – a favourite among members, this technique is ideal to fully reset your system in preparation for your training week ahead. Christine has written about the benefits of PMR previously, check out her blog post HERE:

No Classes on August 25th and August 26th
We are going to be hosting the CrossFit Gymnastics Course later on in August and as a result there will be no classes on schedule for the weekend (this includes Yoga, CrossFit Kids, and OLY). Keep an eye out on the blog for an update on some out of the gym activities that should be on in place of classes for that weekend ahead!
