This week we met at our lovely host location of St Matthews Community Hall and were tasked with helping sort and fix chairs that have seen better days. However, first of all we shared our news which included exciting stuff outside of GoodGym but mostly


Yes, our lovely Trafford member Nicola just got paired up which we are all over the moon about!

As this was one of our regular walkable tasks, once we had warmed up we undertook a fitness sesh as running was off the agenda. We ran, squatted and punched our way through a Tabata workout and managed to work up a sweat!


We had been assigned several piles of chairs and we set about achieving the following: * Sorting chairs into fixed and to be fixed sections * Replacing feet so that they don't scrape the lovely wooden floors * Replacing chairs and * Tidying up the hall


We sorted out nearly 300, well done team!

After we had achieved all that we chatted about our task next week (which is at Gorse Hill Studios) and went off with smiles on our faces!

See you all next time, Kate x
