There is nothing like a good bit of competition to give a boost to your training regime. So in true sporting style the gym at the LC has decided that is time to challenge its members to up their game and take part in some good old fashioned, friendly competition.
At the start of every month there will be a new gym challenge for members to get involved in. On hand throughout all the challenges will be the LC fitness team. They will offer competitors plenty of encouragement, guidance and motivation to all the competitors (and of course to make sure that there is no cheating)!
Each challenge will correlate with a famous sporting event taking place in the same month. There is no excuse for not taking part, just ask one of the team and they will be there to record your time and score at a time that suits you. We will keep you up to date with all the news from the challenges and announce the monthly winners’ right here on the LC Blog.
The first challenge kicked off in May with a mini triathlon. The course involved a 1 mile bike ride on the expresso bikes, a 2k row and to finish of 2k run! Participants were allowed just 2 minutes to rest in between each grueling stage.
The mini triathlon has been a real hit with members and as the leader board has grown in numbers so has the sense of competition and community between both members and staff. This month’s winners are Raul Reisman who completed the challenge in just 16 minutes and 32 seconds, and for the ladies, Bethan Theaker, who completed the challenge in 22 minutes and 44 seconds. Congratulation to you both,
As June see’s the start of Wimbledon, the LC’s ‘Wimbledon Batak challenge’ will be launched on the first of the month. The Batak wall is great fun and the equipment is used by sportsmen and women around the world to improve reflexes, reactions and agility.The challenge is to get the highest score possible on the Batak wall within just five minutes. All scores will go onto our leader board inside the gym. Unfortunately there won’t be any strawberries and cream but the winner will receive a month’s free spa membership!
