On a moist Tuesday night, five brave GoodGymers embarked on a mission that could only be described as a brick-tastic adventure. Their destination? Stephen's House and Gardens, where a peculiar task awaited them – the manual relocation of bricks. While not quite the epic saga of moving 5 million bricks as originally thought, this journey had its own unique charm, offering the perfect blend of fitness and camaraderie. Let's just say that dumbbells are just too mainstream for this cool crowd.

Our intrepid team of GoodGymers, comprised of Beattie, Katy, Cherian, Niki Theo and myself, Antonio, formed a human chain and with the precision of brick-wielding acrobats, our GoodGymers took turns passing the bricks along.

In the end, a neat tall pile stood exactly five metres away from where they initially were. We jogged back to base and had a nice cool down and hot chocolate and tea at the Phoenix Cinema. Thanks everyone and see you next week!
