The Coaches are in Your Corner

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Open is over and we hope the few who did it enjoyed the experience. If you have any new goals you want to achieve this year the coaching staff would love to hear about them when you come in next. The more we know about what you want to achieve this year the more we are able to help you. Our coaches have a vast knowledge of how to prepare for any event or goal so use us as much as possible to prepare and improve the best way possible. If you want more accountability feel free to share a write up of your goals and we can post it on here. That way you will get all the encouragements from your friends at the gym. That might be a bit scary as well but we are sure some of you will respond really well to that challenge. We have covered a lot of info about goals both short term and long term just search “goals” in the search box under blog posts.

Looking forward to hearing all about what your dream goals are. How fantastic would it feel to achieve that or at least come much closer this year. It will give you a whole new level of satisfaction and motivation that only reaching a goal can give you. Get after those goals, all the coaches here are in your corner and are keen to help you achieve them.

Where Team Wods fit in

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

If you took yesterday off we hope you are ready to take on this week of training. If you decided to turn up to our anniversary wod we hope you are recovering well to get ready to take on the rest of the week after maybe a day off training. We love including partner and team wods into our program because it strengthens our culture at the gym. It breaks training up a bit when you have to work together with other people and it makes it more interesting. It can also be very challenging for some of you having to go at a certain tempo with a teammate whether it be slower or faster. At the end of the day its all about improving and having a fun time while you are at the gym and we believe these types of wods have a huge place in making that happen. We are getting a ton of positive feedback about our team and partner wods so you will keep seeing them pop up regularly.

Future Blog Posts

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are trying to find out what the best way to continue the blog posts are. There needs to be good solid information for you all every time you read a post. We would like to know what you would like to know more about. We will keep posting the wod everyday but there will only be a good read when there are things to write about. This will be a continuous process until we find the best way of continuing these posts.

Keep checking for the wod as that will help you prepare for the session before you turn up.

We still need teams for the Fittest Flat in Dunedin comp so if you are keen to have some fun and compete you should sign up your flat today by contacting us. There are plenty of prizes up for grabs among other things a 6month membership.

If you are new to the SPC community, welcome. We hope you are enjoying your training again and learning a bunch of new stuff both about exercising and about yourself. If you want to keep up to date with what is going on at the gym we have a bunch of platforms to keep you informed: Facebook, Instagram & SnapChat. Just search the gym name and we will come up. You can also jump on our website and read about who we are. If you need more specific information feel free to contact us we are happy to answer any health & fitness related questions for you.

We run both CrossFit classes and Personal Training so if you are hitting a plateau maybe a chat with one of our coaches to help you with some specific training is just what you need.

You can always bring a friend for free to try our training methods out, just make sure they book in to the class.

Take your time in getting to know all the exercises and how hard you can push yourself. You don’t need to be an expert from day one and no one expects that. Just keep coming to regular classes, work hard and you will see the improvements over time. Nothing that comes easy is worth having.

First Free Week of the Year.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

If you haven’t been in the gym this year yet we would like to invite you in for a free week. There are many reasons why people lose motivation to train and sometimes all it takes is a text message which we do daily. We also want to make it clear that we are interested in helping as many of you as we can and we want to let you know we are keen to get you back in the gym. This new training cycle is the perfect time to try us out again. There are plenty of fun and exciting workouts in store for you and all the people you used to hang out with after class are still here talking smack:) Come down and have a chat and give yourself an hour a day just for you to focus on something else than work and the stressors of daily life.

Welcome to new coach Declan Ward

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We have hired one more coach to get you guys fitter and stronger than ever this year. Declan is a weightlifting specialist and he will be scrutinizing everyones technique and making sure you are all making improvements along the way. Here are a few words form the man himself

Growing up in the Middle East and Palmerston North I moved to Dunedin to pursue a degree in Physiotherapy. Having tried just about every sport I came across, nothing stuck until I found CrossFit in 2014 and then I was hooked, completing my CF-L1 later that year. Since then I have transitioned into weightlifting, now competing for Otago Weightlifting. Outside of the gym I have recently taken up surfing and am a passionate drinker of coffee.

Make sure you introduce yourself to our new coaches so they get to know your names first up. We are all really excited to get these new coaches underway.
