Yas, the Individuals took the lead!

January 30, 2018  |  

This past Saturday saw our first Individual Member Throwdown which took place in The Arena. We absolutely love to create such events focused on fitness and fun and we truly hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Events such as this are the perfect opportunity to see how you are all progressing and to show you that hard work pays off!

Our Head Coaches Elliot and Antony put on a great spread for you designing workouts to test you and push your physical and mental boundaries. The entire event ran seamlessly with awesome tunes all afternoon from our DJ.


Head Coaches Elliot & Antony on organising the Throwdown:

“We have done many Team Throwdowns previously and people have loved them, but we knew from classes that people were ready for this next challenge. We wanted to see if the members were ready to bite the bullet, as it is scary to compete as an individual. One month before the Open it was perfect time to see where everybody’s fitness is standing.”
