May 2019 Newsletter

Hi all,

I hope you had a great Easter! Well done to all of our members that took part in The Predator Series Mixed Fours Throwdown last weekend! Due to it being at our own box, there were quite a few members that popped down to cheer the teams on and it created an amazing atmosphere! And thank you so much to our awesome volunteers - lots of the members that helped us out this time have judged or volunteered for us before and the events wouldn’t run as smoothly as they do without them! Thank you! Well done to all of the teams that took part, and a special congratulations to our two teams that made it onto the podium! In 1st place was ‘CrossFit Cheltenham’ (Lofty, James, Sian and Jo), in 2nd was a team from PFN CrossFit and in 3rd was ‘John Sandwich’ (John, Zoe, Amy and John). Our next comps are in August (details below).

The kids classes are going really well! We have still got some spaces available so if it’s something you think your little one might enjoy, please message either me or Aimee Bowyer. They are at 4.10pm on a Tuesday during term time and are £7 per class.

Our Seniors class is also going really well! If you know of anyone that might be interested in the 60+ class, let them know that they can come along on a Monday morning at 10:45am! Some of them have started coming along to the normal classes too now that they understand what a CrossFit class entails and have seen that anyone can do it!

Don’t forget you can bring a friend along to any class as their free taster session! Just let us know which class they will be coming to so that we can register them for it. We have got a great start up offer on at the minute too!

Coming up at the box...
