Remember that most dreaded day of the school year when everyone ran the bleep test? Ever wanted to feel that dread again? Now's your chance!

We've got a few members who need to run the bleep test for their job who fancy a rehearsal run before the big day.

On Saturday 3rd November at 10.30am we will be setting up the gym floor for some bleep test runs.

There's no entry fee - just a chance to have a crack at something challenging and see how far you can push yourself.

Can you reach the Police's bench mark of 5:4? The Firearms Unit's bench mark of 9:4? An international rugyby referee's 12:5?

There will be free protein shakes and pride at stake for everyone who gives it a go!

We're really excited to announce our first Powerlifting Competition.

It's going to be a great day and the ideal chance for someone new to Powerlifting to gain more experience as well as accomplished lifters to have one last competition before the end of the year.

We're thrilled to be supported by @battlereadyfuel who will be supplying their amazing supplements and prizes on the day.

Places are Β£20 and secured on payment. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

We are so excited and honoured that @bigcrocodileuk designed and created our very own Athlete Movement woolly hat!

These beauties are lovingly hand knit by Big Croc's owner herself. 
They might cost a bit more than your standard winter hat but the extra care and quality are definitely worth it!

You won't find these bad boys for sale in the gym, you'll have to speak to @bigcrocodileuk about getting one. We just wanted to show them off!
