Newsletter June 2019

Hi All, the suns back and we are all running, going on holiday, planning school holiday activities and loving life. This month we congratulate our new Member of the month, Talk about our September foundations and more. First we want to congratulate our Member of the Month.


Nick has been with us at Central Staffs Crossfit since June 2017.  He came to us as primarily an endurance athlete with goals of improving his strength and gymnastics.

He has been regularly attending the Olympic weightlifting sessions and the gymnastic classes. In Olympic weightlifting he has gained confidence and strength with the movements and has worked on his technique and now is starting to add weight.  In gymnastics he has seen an improvement in his body positions and realised what areas he still needs to work on.  He attends open gym sessions to work on these.

Nick is keen to ask for advice and will always listen and take on board the coaches’ advice.  Well done Nick.

3rd September 2019
