How to prepare for the gyms re-opening

Feb 26, 2021

It's been a while since most of us have been able to throw around some weights in the gym and train at the intensity we would usually. Unless you’ve managed to make a very well equipped gym at home, your fitness levels will have decreased in some way which means you'll need to start slowly when you begin training again!

 

You'll want to start by easing your way into it. If you've done a lot less than you usually would in the gym, then you should probably expect a lot less physically from yourself in the first few weeks back in the gym. You want to start by getting back into a routine and building back those good habits before you start increasing your training intensity. This might mean in the first few weeks, scaling movements or decreasing the weights so you don't cause yourself an injury!

 

 

If you haven't been completing home workouts throughout lockdown, now is the time to start! By completing some of the workouts it's going...

Benefits of walking and getting in those steps

Jan 30, 2021

We are in the middle of the UK’s 3rd lockdown, and it’s safe to say we’re starting to get a bit fed up! 

Due to the fact that the latest restrictions have again shut down our social lives, many of us have swapped gyms and exercise classes for the great outdoors! Since the beginning of lockdown, there has been a huge surge in the amount of people taking up hiking as a new hobby. In fact, one of the most effective and easiest ways you can keep yourself going physically and mentally, is to go out walking!

Benefits of Walking:

1. It burns calories

Going out for a walk burns calories which in turn, helps towards reaching your fitness goals. Your weight and the distance you walk, are obviously going to determine how many calories you burn. Walking can also strengthen the muscles in your legs too!

2. Improves heart Circulation

Walking can reduce the risk of heart disease. It also gives you the added advantage of bringing up the heart...

Reflecting On 2020 - What A Year It's Been!

Dec 31, 2020

Well 2020, what was that?! A year like no other and it's no doubt turned our lives upside down. And how did it even get to the end of the year when it was only March 5 minutes ago? 2020 has brought worry, struggle and uncertainty, as well as lots of banana bread and an obsession with a man called 'The Tiger King' (remember that?)... 

Even though 2020 has been such a chaotic year, it is important to pause and reflect on the lessons we have learned, how we have grown and what goals we have reached.

It's difficult to look back at the year without COVID being centre stage. Not just for us, but for the fitness industry as a whole, we've had to pivot and work around our box being shut for most of the year. As a Crossfit gym, we are a community (we know you've heard it all before), we support each other, motivate one another and it's all about the atmosphere our members bring each session. We pride ourselves on being 'stronger together' and COVID...

MINDSET AND MENTAL WELLNESS DURING LOCKDOWN

Nov 23, 2020

Being back in another lockdown, many of us are feeling a serious strain on our mental health. Some of us might not be able to go to work, visit loved ones, or enjoy the activities we usually do and there seems to be no telling whether this is going to be the last time! Even with the news that we will be coming out of lockdown as of next week, some of us will still be stuck in a higher tier meaning there will again be restrictions.

With no clear end in sight, coronavirus is having a significant negative effect on mental health with many of us experiencing stress, anxiety and insomnia. We’ve decided to put together some tips, to help you manage your mental health over the coming weeks and months...

 

Focus on what you can control

The amount of uncertainty which is controlling our lives right now can be particularly damaging for our mental health, so it’s important that we don't spend huge amounts of...

TOP TIPS FOR CROSSFIT BEGINNERS

Sep 20, 2020

It's super exciting when you take that step and sign up to become a Crossfit member but it also might seem a little daunting at the same time. There's going to be quite a lot of new things coming your way! If you're just starting out or thinking about joining, here's our top tips for Crossfit beginners that will help you get started! 

 

1. Choose the right Box for you 

There are Crossfit gyms popping up everywhere these days. How do you choose which one is best for you? Firstly, you want to check that it's an affiliated Crossfit gym. There's many 'Crossfit style' gyms around but if they're not affiliated it means they're not officially Crossfit! Other things to consider would be, the experience of the coaches, class structure (not every box is ran the same), programming and community.

 

2. Build up slowly & don't compare yourself to others

When you turn up for your first CrossFit session, you’re going to see people in all sorts of...

5 CROSSFIT MYTHS DEBUNKED

Aug 19, 2020

If you've never tried Crossfit before, you may have wondered what it's all about and whether it's as bad or as good as people say it is. Before you decide CrossFit is too intense, or will make you manly or is dangerous, or whatever you've heard, we're here to give you some hard facts!

 

1. MYTH - You'll get hurt

FACT - With every kind of exercise or sport there's always risk of injury. As long as you listen to your body, to your coach and warm up properly, then you shouldn't get hurt. You actually might not know but Crossfit can actually help avoid injury through functional exercises, or exercises that mimic movements you do in everyday life/ situations. Carrying shopping bags? Picking up your children? Crossfit can help with you with that!

 

 

2. MYTH -  You have to be physically fit to do Crossfit 

Many people believe that they have to be already physically fit before joining Crossfit but this isn't true! Regardless...

Jul 03, 2020

It's safe to say that throughout lockdown, many of us have taken up some new hobbies and formed different habits. Even though there has been many hard times throughout the COVID pandemic, there has also been some positives to take away...

Lockdown has given us time to appreciate things that we usually take for granted! We have been getting outdoors and enjoying the countryside, spending more time with our families and appreciating the gorgeous weather we've had! We have been finding new things to fill our time such as baking or gardening and we've learnt to shop at & support our local businesses! 

So, are you going to keep up these habits now that normal life is starting to resume or will you go back to old ways? Here's some healthy habits we think should be kept up...

 

1. Time for self-care

Whether it's exercise which is essential for both physical and mental health, making some time to read a book, doing...

HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED THROUGHOUT SUMMER

Jun 01, 2020

When the weather is nice outside, you'd rather meet up with friends, have a few drinks after work, or just sit and relax in your back garden...it can be hard to get yourself motivated to workout! 

No matter what your excuse is, here's some tips to help you stay on track this summer...

1. Workout early in the morning

If you usually get towards the end of the day and you start to make excuses as to why you can't workout, then try and fit it in first thing so it's over & done with before your day has even really started. This way, not only will it be cooler at that time of day but you can enjoy the rest of your day knowing you've already completed your workout!

 

2. Keep hydrated

Being dehydrated can leave you feeling unmotivated causing  your energy levels to drop, give you headaches and generally leave you feeling lethargic and often grouchy! None of which, will inspire you to go and exercise. Make sure you...
