All around Trace has grown with her lifting, gymnastics, conditioning and strength. She has been consistent and working hard in all of the classes. Not only does she focus on her own abilities she is willing to help anyone out with her words of encouragement. She brings a positive happy attitude to the sessions she’s on.
Well done Trace, keep up the inspirational work.


We wanted to give a huge shout out to Sam Heath who entered the Rainhill competition in Manchester after qualifying 49th in her category. (Rastrick)

For those of you who don't know, We're heading  to the magnificent grounds of Belvoir Castle in 2018 for Tough Mudder Midlands. Nestled in the heart of Grantham, rolling hills, natural creeks and serene lakes will be interrupted by thousands of Mudders taking on the toughest obstacle course in the world. 

10 Miles, 20+ Obstacles

We are going to want more than a few friends to help us tackle Tough Mudder challenges old and new in 2018. The Grantham course has a reputation for being filled to the brim with water and mud, adding an extra dimension of difficulty to an already physically and mentally demanding course. So far we have the following members tackling this with us, but we want more.

Matt Best
Laurie Marshall
Sara Morley
Colleen Hammond
Sarah Ray
Marta Fernando
Julie Addison
Paul Hanson
Katie Jenkins
Martyn Jennings
Antony Dean
Rich Horsenail
Tim Fearnett & zo
Nick Fearnett
Kai Mountford
Paul Bastock

Gav Heath
Sylvia Druzdz
Ryan Helsby

To join our team'Chafing the Dream' head to your purchased ticket and click 'join team'...then search for the team name and use password 'teamcsc' - if you do it right I will get an email so give me a shout and I can check.
We have gone for an early start again as it gives us more time on the course, but heading to a pub after to wash down the mud is a sure fact! 
Go for it folks - we want a monster team again from CSC and friends!

This month we dedicate our hero WOD to


In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. 
Murphy was killed after he left his cover position and went to a clearing away from the mountains, exposing himself to a hail of gunfire in order to get a clear signal to contact headquarters for relaying the dire situation and requesting immediate support for his team. He dropped the satellite phone after being shot multiple times but picked the phone back up and finished the call. While being shot, he signed off saying- "Thank You", then continued fighting from his exposed position until he died from his wounds


Well, we are most definitely into the winter months now, with dark nights and cold mornings hampering our mood. Please make sure that during the winter you keep warm and listen to your body. Vitamin D will help with those affected by the short days, and make sure to take plenty of rest as needed. With the festive season almost here, please do take the time to enjoy yourselves, you have all worked hard this year and its good to cut loose once in a while. If you can make the Christmas WOD and the night out we would love to see you all. If you can do the in-house competition in January get signed up now.
