Newsletter - July 2017

This month we look forward to the summer holidays, say goodbye to a family member and celebrate some excellent work by CSC at Wild West competition. So here we go....

This month we are proud to recognise our CSC Member of the month Jess Hester

MOM July 2017.png

Jess has been with us for almost a year and has been working hard to improve her weaknesess over this period with great success.

Jess is a valued member of our community and is always around before and after the WOD's to cheer people on. Her laugh and smile are infectious especially when she hits a new PB.

Congratulations on your continued hard work we will all be sad to see you go.

August 31st 2017 sees CSC say Au Revoir to the man, the legend that is Kanukai “Kaj” Jackson.

As a member of CSC I can honestly say that Kaj’s presence was felt, and I mean this literally. Remember the days when you thought you had your stretching technique nailed then Kaj came along and asked you to move your thumb a little more, or raise your arm a little higher and then you felt a whole world of pain and realised that you was actually coasting!!

It is hard to put into words how much Kaj is respected as a coach and what he bought to the table for the rest of the CSC coaching team and although he is moving on he will always remain a huge part of the Central Staffs CrossFit Community.  

Mr Jackson, your enthusiasm, encouragement, vibrancy, humour, knowledge and gigantic smile will be missed. We hope you return to us at some point in the future but until then we all wish you the very best in your new adventure. - MJ

Dusan Grujic, Gemma Frisby, Ryan Helsby and Danielle Law took part in the Wild West 2017 competition held at the three counties showground in Malvern on the 22nd - 23rd of July. This event takes place every year and is a four person team event consisting of two males and two female athletes. The guys went up against 124 teams from across the country. The team took part in six wods in total across 2 days and bought home a 106th place finish. Well done all :)


Unfortunately due to low numbers we have decided to remove the Endurance class from the weekly timetable. Despite the class delivering excellent content and those who attending seeing real results we feel it is best to use this time to accommodate more members. Rest assured the hard work that Paul put in to deliver these sessions will be available in another medium soon (watch this space).

With endurance removed from the timetable, we are bringing in a new open gym slot in its place. this will allow you to come and do an Open Gym session on a Tuesday evening from 7:30pm - 9pm.
As always use the time to work on weaknesses, develop new skills or build your own workouts.

In addition to the new Open Gym sessions we are adding another weightlifting class on Friday evenings between 8pm - 9pm. This class will be in addition to the one run on a Wednesday evening.
For those of you new to CSC this is a great class to concentrate on your weightlifting movements with a highly experienced coach. The class offers you the chance to have your own personal movements refined and for your weightlifting efficiency to be greatly improved.

The last Friday of every month is our Hero WOD, to book your free place go to teamup by clicking the button below and get involved.

This month we dedicate our Hero WOD to
