Yey, it’s DF update time, but first, I want to thank you for your continuing support through these crazy times, especially when we’ve had to change so much. Each month we’re making slight improvements with the aim of getting closer to our typical Boot Camp sessions by January.
Here’s what else is included:
📢 Bleep Test
📢 Biggest Loser
📢 Black Friday
Coronavirus isn’t going away anytime soon, for now it’s something we are having to adapt too and protecting you, the team and the business is paramount.
Whilst I appreciate people have different opinions on how the Coronavirus should be handled, we have a legal obligation to observe the restrictions, maintain a risk assessment and ensure control measures are in place.
Sadly, a minority of people have become lax about the restrictions and when reminded some have either completely ignored requests or challenged the team in front of the group. If you don’t agree with something please feel free to give me a call on 07794259395, do not make members of the team feel uncomfortable and embarrassed.
Scorecards are back! The best way to make progress is to track it.
Use the scorecards to track the number of reps in each interval and the weights used. Each week, the aim is to improve on the week before. Pens will be provided and cleaned at the end of the session, but you must take the scorecard home with you.
📢 Bleep Test
I know you’ve all missed the Bleep Test, so we’re having a Bleep Test Day. It’s a great way to benchmark your current fitness level and we’ll hold them every 6-8 weeks so you can track progress.
Our first Bleep Test Day will be on Sunday 18th October, please book via the app from this Sunday 11th. We’ll add availability if necessary. You can only book onto 1 session.
The work we had announced before Lockdown is back on, so in the next 6-8 weeks the roof should be repaired and sealed, meaning no more leaks and a warmer and cleaner gym. Additionally, we will be insulating the exterior walls to prevent the extreme temperature drops we are used to during Winter.
Once social distance restrictions are lifted you will be able to bring your children along again.
📢 The Biggest Loser is coming…
The Biggest Loser will be back in January and will be bigger and better than ever. Plus, we’re wiping the slate clean, i.e. the competition will not be based on your best ever weight.
📢 Black Friday
Last year our Black Friday event was a huge success, meaning it’ll be returning this year with great offers for both current and new members.
For years we’ve buddied newbies up with experienced members, but since the change in session format we’ve not done this. From next week we will be asking an experienced member to work in the station next to our newbies, just to make sure they have someone to speak to or help them if they need. We’d really appreciate your help with this.
Finally, a reminder, as you know we have reduced our membership to £39 from it’s usual £45 to help everyone through this challenging period. Our plan is still to return to our usual price in January as £39 is unsustainable long term.
