Yoga for Athletes, Saturday 12.30-1.30pm

We’re in week 4/8, so halfway through the current cycle, and therefore you get a well-deserved snooze this Saturday – in other words, it’s time for a progressive muscle relaxation after a short restorative practice. To find out more about this type of guided relaxation, please click here.

It’s bound to be chilly this weekend, and as you will be still for a good part of the class, please layer up appropriately – wooly socks, a big scarf, a hat…perhaps a blanket even. Bring whatever you need to stay nice and warm throughout, and treat yourself to a hot bevvie afterwards

Nutrition Programming with Jonny Landels!

It’s finally happening!

Jonny Landels of Next Step Nutrition is partnering with his old haunt to offer his nutrition programming services to you!

Jonny’s mission is to educate people about food and to clear up the nutrition myths that surround and confuse us on a daily basis.

There’s no bullshit here. No quick fix. No “6 weeks to flat abs”. Just real advice, coaching, and accountability, that brings real results. “I’m not about ‘diets’. I’m about small lifestyle changes that make a big difference.

Jonny moved into nutrition coaching back in September 2016 to continue pursuing his passion of improving people’s health and fitness. His own journey with fitness began back in 2009 when he started going to the gym to fill the gap from playing rugby.

He found CrossFit in 2010 and became a CF-L1 instructor in 2012. This led him down the path of learning more and getting more coaching experience, before becoming a full-time trainer with us at Reebok CrossFit Thames in London in 2014. He coached here full time up until September 2016 before re-located back north and moving full time into nutrition coaching.

So how can Jonny help you, well let’s have him explain…


Nutrition programming with Jonny is a 3 month commitment (Rome wasn’t built in a day!) to develop healthy habits and a nutrition program for you to improve how you look, feel and perform.

During those 3 months you get:
– 90 day ongoing food log review
– 1x/week check-in (online) with Jonny,
– A website to submit weekly check-ins for review allowing Jonny to track your progress and adjust your plan
– Specific guidance based on your goals whether it be body composition or performance (or both!)
– Specific macronutrient and/or habitual recommendations based on your goals
– Before and after measurements with each weekly check-in
– A members-only Facebook group to lean on for extra support

At the end of the 3 months many clients feel comfortable going off into the big wide world by themselves full of confidence with what they have learned!

If you want to find out more, or get signed up just email us.

Bonus: The first 10 sign-ups also get a free e-book from Jonny on “Flexible Dieting”
