Welcome to What’s New On The Chalk Board Summer Edition. We are getting closer to the end of the summer break and we hope you all have had a great holiday. It was great to see that even though it was holiday season most sessions were well attended. We like to say a big THANK YOU to all the coaches who have kept ChalkBox going over the summer. It’s great to see that ChalkBox has such an amazing support!

The overriding theme will be building a stronger aerobic & strength base using the conclusions from the last Check In. Parts of the cycle will have bias towards either cardiac output, threshold training, barbell or gymnastics strength.On Monday Aug15th our new cycle will start and this one will be a significant update. The cycle lasts 25 weeks taking us till end of January 2017.

MEMBER OF THE MONTH: JASON


This month goes to Jason.  Jason had his first Trial Session at ChalkBox on January 5th 2015 at Raleys Gym in Sevenoaks. When he started he already was a fit athlete but since then has grown into an even stronger and fitter athlete who takes part in CrossFit competitions. Jason is known by every member as a helpful athlete who always encourages every one in the sessions. Next to that Jason is also a person we the coaches can rely on if we need a few more hands to stay organised. When the coaches discussed who should be this month's member of the month everyone voted for Jason. Jason keep up working on your progress, can't wait to see were you will be in a years time. Thanks for being such a great spirit in the Box!

 

SPACE TO SWEAT / FOR EVERYONE

We created a new website.  A website that tells our Story. A story of a Space to work on a better version of yourself - our garage. A Space To Sweat started with Kids & Teens classes at a village hall, soon followed by classes for adults at a council gym. Since June last year we have found a home for a Space To Sweat / For Everyone.

The website is a window in our Space to Sweat and you all are featuring in it! Our vision is to grow a close knit community of like minded people who all want to work on a better version of themselves. A Space to Sweat for the Young and Old, for the Novice and Athlete.

You can find all WOD's and other posts on our website. If you have suggestions how we can improve the site please let us know.
