Hello you awesome people!
Officially half way through another year, time flies when you’re having fun and getting gains!
“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different? – C.S Lewis
We would like to take a moment to acknowledge what an awesome first half of 2018 we’ve had and how excited we are for the next. Our gym family has grown and changed so much in that time. Every day we see you in the gym making progress and working on bettering yourselves.
There have even been a few goals checked off the new goals board! This beautiful glass board is a new addition hanging in the back room. You can add a short term (6-12 weeks), a medium (6-12 months) and a long term goal (1-5 years).
Writing down tangible goals is a great visual tool that reminds you of your WHY and keeps us all accountable. If you haven’t seen it yet check it out and try sparking up a conversation with a fellow member about their goals and journey. Being surrounded by a community of like-minded people in pursuit of crushing their goals creates a contagiously inspiring atmosphere and we are loving it! Our community at UV is great at lifting each other up, figuratively and literally to achieve great things.
For our UV Social this past month we had yet another awesome UV Games Night kicked off by the UV Beer Mile 2.0. The community vibes were strong. A turn out of around 40 people shared their Friday Night with UV friends old and new. There is a new UV Beer Mile champion and many honorable mentions.
Our UV run crew also crushed their running goals at the 10K race. For a few members it was their first official 10K and many members ran a PR time!
Our member of the month for June was one of these people.
We also had another member make running even tougher by adding obstacles. She showcased her strength and grit and completed a Spartan Race!

July has started off with a BANG!
We hope you all had a relaxing Canada Day long weekend celebrating Canada’s birthday. We had our TeamWOD Saturday and Sweaty Sunday sessions and eyes were on instagram for members getting out in the warm weather and hitting a long distance run.
Did you know, CrossFit UV turns two this month too? In it’s almost 2 years being open, this Monday was the first day that CrossFit UV has ever been closed!?
There was one other pretty big reason to celebrate this weekend…
Fergus and Jolina got married!
A massive congratulations to Mr & Mrs Lally (AKA Mr & Mrs UV).
It was a beautiful celebration filled with love, happiness, laughter and dancing. One of their readings was, “why love is like owning a dog” and their cake had a very fitting fit couple on top of a pile of donuts. We expected nothing less from the power couple and the day was nothing short of amazing.
This month the celebrations will continue with CrossFit UV’s second birthday. We have a two part celebration planned.
Woodbine Beach Party!
Sunday July 22nd.
Sweaty Sundays will run as usual then we will head to Woodbine Beach.
This is a combined farewell for a bunch of our awesome members who are sadly parting ways with UV as they are moving out of the area/country! We are heartbroken to be losing them but are excited for their new adventures.
Our big official birthday bash
Camp Green Acres!
Sunday August 12th
Block those diaries out it is going to be a big day of activities.
The lovely Lori has kindly organised the use of Camp Green Acres again.
We are planning a mini competition, all of the food and all of the outdoor fun. We need to get an idea on numbers asap so please RSVP to the event in the Facebook Members group.
Now that it is heating up and the summer parties have begun it’s easy to relax and skip some workouts. At UV we believe in working in your workouts. Trust Fergus and a bunch of the wedding guests too lead the way by working out the morning of and morning after the big day, proving that there’s always time to get some fitness!
Don’t forget to plan out your week in advance, set yourself time in these social months to get those sessions in and treat it like any other appointment. Why not make a social occassion out of your sessions and rope a friend in to make it a date.
Once you’re there…
Sweaty workouts? Sure thing!
BBQ and beers? You betcha!
Socials? So many.
A buzzing atmosphere? Always.
UV is the place to be.
