Newsletter - October 2018

Halloween will be here before we know it and then we will be on the countdown to Christmas and other seasonal festivities.

As always if you have any feedback or would like something mentioned, please let us know.


It has been a very tough month deciding this one, and we want to know that we see amazing attitudes towards personal goals from so many of you and this. is always a hard decision. This month we would like t award our member of the month to…

So expect to see these faces around the gym in the next few weeks and make them feel really welcome and at home. For those who completed the course, read our notes below on motivation and development.

foundations september 2018.jpeg

We were contacted by Sam, who recently completed our foundations course, and we wanted to share some of her comments with you. She kindly allowed us to use her message to not only encourage her to continue on this amazing transformation but hopefully inspire others to do the same.

‘Hi just wanted to drop a message to let you know how much I enjoyed my foundation course. I have battled for almost a year to get back to regular fitness not quite enjoying what I used to before my injury, so I finally decided to try something different and with the course commencing just days after my holiday it was clearly meant to be so I had to give it a go.

The foundation course has been fantastic and useful for gradually introducing myself back to regular sessions and perfecting my technique and highlighting some areas that clearly I need to aim towards. I wasn’t putting any pressure on myself during the 4 weeks only to enjoy but clearly there was going to be some change. As I was desperately trying to find my mojo again I decided I would document my changes with photos and measurement and without particularly trying anything different with food other than generally trying to eat well. I was very pleased with my results over the 4 weeks and can’t wait to get started not only in my repeat WOD but in my stats to.

My WOD, I didn’t hold out much hope for as this last week I have been full of cold and Thursday it had moved to my chest, but even with that I still shaved 15 seconds off my WOD time and could have gone quicker if without the cold.

In 8 sessions and I even squeezed in a boozy hen weekend, and a 4 day all-inclusive break in during the 4 weeks and still got these results.
I dropped the following.
Chest (-4.5cm)
Waist (-9cm)
Hip (-4cm)
Thighs (-6cm)
Arms (-6cm)

Crossfit Foundations Success

I plan to continue to capture my journey until I’m back to my pre injury fitness. It’s taken over 2.5 years and 18 months in a dark cloud but I seem to be on my way out and can’t wait get back’

Our next foundations course is already booked in and we kick it off on the 15th January 2019. A great gift for someone who’s ready for a life challenge or just wants to keep fit and have fun doing it. You can read more details on our Foundations breakdown, hit the bottom below to learn more.

This month we wanted to cover a few things that most people struggle with, Nutrition, and determination. Over the last few weeks, Crossfit HQ has been reiterating the importance of a good nutritional diet and how this is the foundation of your lifestyle, not just your fitness regime.

There are those that struggle with nutrition at its base levels and don’t realise it. Today's society is geared for fast living, and to allow us to cope with this we take shortcuts; a takeaway here, a quick snack there it all adds up. Now we are not saying you can’t have fun and enjoy some of the things you like, but that’s the key word “some”. Our bodies are constantly being loaded with refined carbohydrates and sugar in the most unexpected places. So, as a result, our bodies adapt and do what it was designed to do and fights back with chemical responses that are a natural part of its make up. However, we are not eating naturally occurring foods if we are buying and consuming convenience foods. Our bodies are designed to prepare for winter, yet our winter, if not careful is 365 days long, and we store the fat ready. Make a consistent effort to eat fresh food, and avoid prepackaged items. Think of it this way, in order to make your life easier, the big corporations use economies of scale to make a profit. In order to make the necessary margin for their shareholders, they replace ingredients with chemicals and other components to retain the flavour you expect. So you're compromising your health for the money in someone's pocket. It’s a harsh way to look at it, but it’s true.

Its a fallacy that healthy eating costs more, in fact, if you eat right, you will feel fuller for longer. The only thing you are sacrificing is the time it takes to make the food. The time you are saving eating the prepackaged food is potentially time you are limiting your life by. The reaper catches us all in the end. Your biggest challenge is to stop the cravings. Start by reducing your sugar intake, cut the 2 spoons in your tea/coffee. Prepare a meal for work instead of Mcdonalds. Switch to flavoured fruit water instead of soda. It will take a while for you to see the difference and for a short time your food will seem bland, but that’s the point.

Eventually, you will start to rediscover the natural flavours in everyday natural items. Your taste buds are bombarded with over the top flavours on a daily basis, and to compensate your body will crave the next big flavour. Food manufacturers will exploit this by loading their foods with salts or sugars. Its similar to being in a public area, it starts off with everyone talking at a reasonable level, then someone gets a bit louder to be heard by the other, then someone else gets louder, and so on until everyone is shouting over one another to be heard. Strip your eating habits back and see what happens.

Now, motivation is a key thing in everyone's lives, we are motivated to do better, motivated to seek new fun things to do, and motivated when we succeed at something. However, how do we react when things don’t go as planned? Have you considered all of the factors that lead to the plans failing? When it comes to fitness and your skills in the gym, most people expect results immediately, but it's not always something that happens. If you haven’t done a pull-up, you shouldn’t expect muscle-ups a week later.

Determination will keep you striving for your goals, and there will be periods of failure, the key to change is to be persistent, practice until you get the basics nailed consistently. It will be frustrating, it will drive you mad, you probably won’t see the reason for the slow progress, but things will change if you keep at it. Hitting a WOD is only part of the process, that’s why we at Central Staffs CrossFit incorporate accessories and skills in our programming. These alone won’t get you to your goals, but the teaching behind it and your determination and dedication will get you there faster. Similar to nutrition, getting the basics right is the key, you will avoid injury, and you will remain in the game longer. So where does motivation come into it? Well, set your self a realistic goal, keep moving towards it. Even if they are small steps you will eventually reach it, you have more chances of falling if you run towards it.

Your motivation comes from why you need to get there. People tend to join gyms in January as part of a New Years resolution but who really sticks to those? For you to succeed you need to have a vision, a reason for doing something, a real deep sense of what you want. Make it tangible, make it realistic (you can always raise the bar later).

Want to run a half marathon? Why? Think about how important it is to you and why use that to get you across the line. Is that enough to get you out of bed and running day in day out? When you find your motivation, you will start to benefit from the actions you take to achieve it, just don’t expect it to come overnight, and make it mean something to you.

We will now be holding gymnastics at 17:00 on a Tuesday, and moving Weightlifting to 17:00 on a Thursday.  Now the shorter nights are closing in we will also be putting Strongman on hiatus until next season. 

We have loved the vibes and atmosphere in the workouts lately its been really good to see the community motivating each other. New members and an upswing in the conditioning classes has really created a positive atmosphere. We hope those of you who are new to CSC are feeling part of the group and starting to feel at home. We have potential new members starting our foundations course on the 4th September, so for those of you on the later classes on a Tuesday and Thursday don't be shy, introduce yourself. 

We are proud of our box and want to keep it and the equipment in tip-top condition. When using the facilities, please leave each area as you would expect to find it, if you use it, clean it. Don't forget our community spirit and help others pack their kit away to make it ready for the next class. When we work together, we are a stronger team. On a similar note, keep your eyes peeled for new equipment coming soon to the box. Always making it more exciting and challenging to keep you on your toes.

We would also like to thank everyone who came to the seminar on Sunday 26th August. We had lots of positive feedback from the information we provided. It is our hope that some of the information we passed on will help and improve on your training and take you that little bit closer to your goals. It is important to get your balance right with work and training and that's why we are here, we train, educate, guide and coach. Thank you again to those who took the time out of their day to attend, it means a lot to us that you care and want to learn as well as train hard.

CLOSING COMMENTS.png

Most people outside our community won't have realised that we recently celebrated our 5 year anniversary. This was a huge milestone in the CSC story, we have grown from a small community into a thriving family. We have had our little ups and downs but it is all worth it to see what can be achieved by our members when they trust us to do what we do. We love seeing the successes and take pride when people reach their goals. We are sad when people move on and get excited when new members join.

More importantly, we could not do what we do without you. You have all made CSC an amazing place to share our passions and interests, without you there wouldn't be a CSC. That being said, we want your feedback, we want to know your thoughts and we want to know what else we can do to improve your health and fitness journey. This is your community, your facility so tell us what you think. please email us if you feel we can do things better.

First off, this month we want to congratulate Coach Ally Bell for the successful completion of her Crossfit Level 1 certification. Ally has been a regular fixture at CSC as a member and more recently took on the Crossfit Kids classes. Ally now boasts her latest accomplishment which we are all sure will only spur her on to be an even bigger part of CSC. Congratulations Ally 😃💪🏻.

In other coach news, we introduced a new face into the box last month, Russel Skitt. Russel has been a hit with the members and will be around a fair bit in the future. Russel was described as adding some Zing to our classes, so we hope you will all continue to introduce yourself if he coaches you in the coming months. Welcome aboard Russel.

From 1st May we replaced the 18:00 conditioning classes with CrossFit sessions and started to run the same WOD in both rooms accommodating up to 20 people. These classes have gone down well, and we will continue to have this as a regular fixture on the timetable.  Make sure if you are booking on with friends that you both select the same box, we won't be able to move you once the session has been booked. 

Our latest Foundations course is underway, and many of them will be fully fledged CrossFit members by the 14th June. If you are in on a Tuesday and Wednesday evening and see people you don't recognise, introduce yourself and make them feel part of the CSC community. If you know anyone who is thinking of starting CrossFit and are interested in our next foundation's course, get them to drop us an email, and we will get in touch.

In an effort to make our merchandise more available, we have teamed up with Spreadshirt to bring you a wider range of clothing and more customisable experience. We are hoping this outlet allows you to express yourself in broader ways in the coming few months. We have launched with a core set of designs that are familiar and recognisable, and we hope these offer you all a little individuality to your CSC attire. In addition to the core offering, we will be introducing limited edition designs and one-off events throughout the year depending on the uptake of the new merchandise. Not all of our designs will be around forever, so take a look at the store by clicking the button below, like and share with friends and family too.

PTR is now able to offer acupuncture as part of their service catalogue. There are many benefits of acupuncture include relief from chronic pain, arthritis, anxiety, insomnia, postoperative pain, migraine and nausea.

Acupuncture is one of the most widely used alternative medicines throughout the world, and in simplest terms, acupuncture is the practice of penetrating the body with small needles at key points on the body. This stimulates specific nerve endings of the body and can relieve a wide variety of health conditions.

We understand that acupuncture isn't for everyone, but if your symptoms have not subsided, this is an alternative treatment to consider. Use the button below to book your treatment now.

Tim is off to Glasgow to support the GB Judo squad on their National Travels and do some event Therapy and First Aid support in June, this is an excellent opportunity for PTR and ultimately the clients at PTR.

Newsletter - April 2018

Welcome to the April Newsletter, congratulations to our latest member of the month, well done to those who completed competitions and we welcome some significant changes to CSC.


This month we are proud to announce Tony Dean as our Member of the Month.

MOM MAY 2018.png

Tony first came to CSC to learn to rope climb for an obstacle course race. He loved the facility and decided to give the conditioning classes a go.

With Tony’s interest in Crossfit growing, he decided to do the foundations course.  Since the foundation course, Tony has given everything a go and hasn’t shied away from anything.  He attends open gym sessions to work on his weaknesses and technique which is vitally important to improve his all-around ability. Entering the Crossfit Open was great for Tony to push him outside of his comfort zone, and did amazingly well in it choosing and being sensible on the ones he RX’d and the ones he scaled.

Tony well done on achieving member of the month.


Foundations Knott.png

Our next CrossFit foundations course kicks off on Tuesday 22nd May, and we want to ensure everyone is aware and sharing this information with any friends or family who have expressed an interest in CrossFit.

BOX NEWS.png

There is a fair bit to cover this month but lets kick off with why we have removed some whiteboards!

Welcome-CrossFit-CSC.png

You may have seen the monitors on the wall within the box, and we will be launching this amazing platform shortly (if not already as its fantastic), but to give you some background on this new tracking app here is a small introduction to BoxMate.

BoxMate is a small, UK based team and their ultimate goal is to enhance peoples’ training experience and also make training fun and social. They have a strong focus on customer support and are really proud of the feedback they have received from the gyms they work with.

Here is a quote from BoxMate on their Members APP

"The members’ app is built to be fast, reliable and innovative but most importantly easy to use so that everyone can utilise all its features. Unlike other systems, we don’t overload your members with unnecessary features that in a lot of cases just don't get used. BoxMate provides simple performance tracking, a platform to manage personal goals and a social hub to engage and grow your gym’s community.

Once your account is configured, your members can access BoxMate from their phones by downloading our apps available for iOS and Android from the app store. As complete lovers of fitness, our ethos is to be always innovating and thinking up new ideas to make training better. Our platform is constantly being improved with new features which come from the feedback we receive. Making BoxMate current and useful for all of our members is EXTREMELY important to us and we are working to build the perfect platform crafted by people who use it daily."

To get access to the app, you need to request this via your coaches through the IOS or Android App. This is a paid app, but you get this as part of your CSC member package. However, if the app is not accessed within a three week period, CSC will remove your access.

We want everyone to embrace this new system and use it to enhance their training and make it easier to track your efforts. Use the features, suggest improvements and let us see those PB's

----------------------------------------

In other news, you may have seen the Instagram and Facebook posts about our change to the timetable on a Monday and Wednesday. From 1st May we will be replacing the 18:00 conditioning classes with CrossFit sessions and will be running the same WOD in both rooms accommodating up to 20 people. We want to raise the roof during these sessions so make the most of it and use the power of the group to inspire you. Make sure if you are booing on with friends that you both select the same box, we won't be able to move you once the session has been booked. 

More than ever we need to make sure that we respect the equipment in the box. Avoid dropping empty bars, clean up after yourself and help other members pack away if needed. We have a fantastic community, and we are growing so it is essential that we do what we can as a community to keep the equipment in good order and the box tidy.

----------------------------------------

And Finally, we would like to Introduce Russell Skitt. Russell will be helping out at the box and introducing his style of training to CSC. We hope to see more of Russell around the gym, so if you haven't already one so, reach out to him and say hello. Heres a few words from the man himself.

"Hey hey hey I’m Russ, I’m an inspirational Motivator always willing to help people reach and achieve their desired goals. I’ve been into Fitness and looking after my body since a very young age. Keeping your body flexible and mobile is key to keeping it at its best. I’m into body flow & balance which I’ve trained in and also moving over into more advanced Strength and conditioning to help and create building a better engine. If ever want any extra support or just a chat don’t hesitate to ask."
