Wow. What can i say. Goodgymers just kept turning up this evening. I believe it was a Bexley Goodgym attendance record, not including opening / launch night. With 22 Goodgymers all ready to head over to the Danson Water Sports Centre to do some good i had to pull in the reins and hold them all back for our warm up. The warm up this week included a fun fitness session so everyone could get to know each other in a fun but very hot and sweaty environment. Put it this way, no one was hugging each other after it.

It was know time to head down to Danson. We split into two teams. Those wanting to do the longer quicker run, and those in training for a slower lesser distance run. Thanks Susan as always for looking after the front runners.


On arrival at the water centre it was all hands on deck. We had several tasks to complete. We had a team litter picking and cleaning the jetty. A team sorting out all the float jackets and sorting the canoe oars into there proper places. It was then all hands on deck to lift the canoes up onto the trailers, carry some bigger canoes back up to the centre storage units, then all finishing with pulling some sailing boats and windsurfers to the units. Believe me, there was no need for any further fitness sessions after that lot.

It was just brilliant to see so many new and old faces last night. Big hi 5 to Tanya, thanks for staying up and making it. A big shout also the Emily who is going to be the brand new Hammersmith and Fulham Goodgym trainer. Hope you enjoyed the evening, and no stealing my bad habits, they took me over a year to perfect ;-) Thanks to Sarah who puts the boom in our weekly boomerang videos and photos. We love them. And not to miss out all my crew that join me every single week, no matter what the task or weather is going to be. You are all awesome.

Until next week Bexley Goodgymers...............
