Getting out to help out

Sat 16 Jan

Report written by Jenni H

To get our lovely gang out and about this month, we set a scavenger hunt of places that can be found wherever we all are at the moment. With entries from Ealing, Manchester and Liverpool, we scavenged our way round our locales and found new places and some favourite spots, while getting in some extra distance for the January distance challenge!

The places they were tasked to visit and snap a photo at were;

  • Your favourite local pub

  • A cinema/theatre

  • A medical centre (hospital, doctors etc)

  • A non-essential, and non-chain shop

  • Your favourite local restaurant

  • A river, lake or canal

  • Complete a lap of your local park

  • The foodbank, or a drop off point in a supermarket

  • A church/temple/mosque/synagogue/place of worship

  • Your local coffee shop

  • A gym/swimming pool

  • Complete a loop of a cul-de-sac

  • A postbox/post office

  • A Christmas tree outdoors

  • The view from the top of a hill

Anywhere You May Be, In The World, BHA PPY
Taking in some local highlights and getting some fresh air

Throughout January, we've been challenged to complete as many kilometers as possible, so to get you out and about, we've created a scavenger hunt! You can do this anywhere, you don't have to be in Ealing, and you can do it all at once or in as many trips as you like during the first two weeks of January, just do what you can by Saturday 16th Jan (keep your eyes peeled for part 2 for the second half of the month!).

The places you should visit, and snap a selfie at are;

  • Your favourite local pub

  • A cinema/theatre

  • A medical centre (hospital, doctors etc)

  • A non-essential, and non-chain shop

  • Your favourite local restaurant

  • A river, lake or canal

  • Complete a lap of your local park

  • The foodbank, or a drop off point in a supermarket

  • A church/temple/mosque/synagogue/place of worship

  • Your local coffee shop

  • A gym/swimming pool

  • Complete a loop of a cul-de-sac

  • A postbox/post office

  • A Christmas tree outdoors

  • The view from the top of a hill

Don't forget to track your journey (and link your Strava to your GoodGym profile!) to add to our area's total distance covered.

Please send any photos to Jenni at jenni@goodgym.org for the report, and enjoy the great outdoors safely!

Litter picking with a twist!

Tue 8 Dec 19:00 pm
Ealing Green, The Green, Ealing, W5 5DA
Litter picking combined with running and HIIT

Join us tonight for litter picking with a twist!

How it's going to work:

  • Meet at 7pm on Ealing Green (by the roundabout where Mattock Lane starts)

  • It's set to be cold so we'll warm ourselves up with a 10 minute jog around the block in socially distanced groups - all paces welcome!

  • We'll then split into small groups to start speed litter picking

  • Everytime each person has picked up 10 items of litter you'll perform a HIIT exercise, the full list will be given to you on the night

  • The aim is for each person to pick up 100 pieces of litter and complete 10 HIIT exercises along the way

Don't worry it'll all make sense on the night and it'll be great fun, a great workout and great for you and the world!

Come along a join in!

Giving it 100 (squats) percent

Tue 10 Nov
•
Report written by Liv Parker-Scott

Tonight 8 of us logged on to banish the lockdown blues and fire up the glutes with an 100 squat challenge! We did 10 reps of 10 different squat variations with bonus plank in between each set. PHWOAR!

Speical guest appearances were as follows:

  • Michelle S was joined by baby Henry (who just turned one this week!) and used him for extra weight in the squats
  • Liv joined us from GoodGym Lambeth
  • And Michelle G dialled in from neighbouring GoodGym Hounslow

The joys of the internet bringing us together!

So although we're all not thrilled to be back online, instead of out in the real world, seeing everyone virtually definitely still gave us a warm (and sweaty) feeling!

We'll be live every Tuesday evening throughout this lockdown so come and join us next week when we'll have another workout you can do from the comfort of your home!
