Hello you awesome people!

Best September EVER!

September started with a bang thanks to the arrival of Mateo, his easy going attitude and his many sleeveless shirts and just when we though that it was getting too cold for them, boom, the sun came back out!

We also launched our 10am classes and Thursday weightlifting classes which have been a roaring success and are definitely here to stay.

We’ve got a great few weeks ahead with our Games Night on Friday the 20th, our Halloween WOD on Saturday the 28th and we get to greet the lovely Coach Amy at our Thanksgiving WOD on Monday the 9th.

Member of the month – Tiff

Tiff could probably win this award for putting up with Rav & Hadrian complaining on a daily basis!This was a really hard month to make a decision on because so many people have genuinely been killing it, however Tiff was on another level to her usual awesome self!

Epic things Tiff did this month included a 65lb snatch which she has been working steadily towards over the last few months. she snatched it again on Thursday and hit 66lbs in this mornings class so road to 70 anyone?  I know how hard she’s been working towards that 65lb snatch that I think I mentioned it to about a dozen classes afterwards.

On the whiteboard she flies under the radar but, if you pay as much attention to everyones scores as the coaches do, you’ll note that she has a really big engine, is one of the best in the gym at rope climbs, seems to love burpees (weirdo!) and is regularly doing more and more WODs as RX’d.

Her progress didn’t happen by luck, she’s regularly staying after class or getting in early working on one thing at a time to keep improving.

Outside of her love of bullying coaches (seriously, when no one is watching she’s beats us!), Tiff is an absolutely wonderful lady!

She comes in with a smile, works her butt off in every class and laughs at all of my jokes – what’s not to like!

She’s regularly brings people treats and, along with Hilda, Tracy & florah, organise a gorgeous BBQ and cake for Rav’s birthday.

This month also saw Tiff’s one year anniversary at UV and more importantly her 8 year anniversary with Hadrian or as she calls him ‘Big S*xy’ (she protests that it’s Rav’s nickname for him but we know the truth!).

In summary, work your ass off, laugh at all of my jokes, regularly take pics of animals to show everyone, challenge yourself to do things you never though that you could but most of all Be More Tiff!

Ps Coach Mateo will be in contact to set up a one-on-one personal training session as your prize!

Open Gym

Up until now open gym has been for Gold/unlimited members only however we’ve now decided to roll it out to all members.For optimum results the majority of your training should still be completed during classes or through personal training however this will now give you the chance to work on extra skills, strength or do some homework you’ve been given by a  coach in class or during a personal training session.

Booking open gym can be done in the same way that you book any other class through Zen Planner.

If you’re wondering what constitutes doing open gym (i.e. what we be used as one of your classes) it’s simple; if you’re doing extra strength or skill work for more than 15 mins before or after a class it’s considered doing open gym but if you’re hanging out mobilising or chatting for as long as you want it’s not – simples.

With roughly 200 classes a month and tonnes of open gym there’s always a time for you to get some fitness!

Get booking now!

Outfit of the month – Dmitry
