Mon 19 Apr
Report written by Julia Shmotkina

Well done to everyone for putting in fantastic effort tonight! We focused on a lot of core work with crunches, russian twists, flutter kicks, planks to mention a few... We also did some slow lunges and tricep work.

Great to see cat making an appearance for the pic;)


If you're wondering about the title - check out Britney Spear's Gimme More song on Spotify/Youtube - took me back to my 'young' years lol:)

Mission accompli-shed.

Mon 19 Apr
Report written by Sarah Wren

'Bridging the Gap for Autism’ had asked for help assembling a flat-pack plastic shed at their new allotment space in Sidcup.

It was the perfect day for an outdoor task with a clear blue sky and lovely warm sunshine.

Dave from the charity had already laid the base on the plot and he took the lead in the project with GoodGymers Sarah and Johnny providing extra hands.

As with many flat-pack builds, there was fair amount of discussion about which way the different panels and struts needed to go together, but Dave was well-prepared with all the tools we needed so things progressed pretty smoothly.

Sadly we had to leave after a couple of hours, so we didn't get to see the roof go on or the door being hung, but we've been invited back on Saturday to see the completed structure in all its glory.

Report written by Tim Dickson

So we had a delayed start but all was good in the end. Starting off with a warm up it wasn't to long before the fun began. The session was a full tabata of 20 seconds work - 10 seconds rest and yep, it burnt a tad.

  • Round One scissor crunch / Bridge pulses
  • Round 2 plank punch outs / plank elbows to hands
  • Round 3 slow bicycles / hand sliders
  • Round 4 plank kicks / reverse plank

We hoped you enjoyed it team and hopefully we'll see you at the next one, Tim

Building veggie beds at the Wonderful Woodlands Farm

Sun 25 Apr 10:00 am
Sitopia @ Woodlands Farm, 331 Shooters Hill, London, DA16 3RP
Help develop a new space to grow fresh vegetables for the local community

Sitopia Farm is a new social farming enterprise in Greenwich! They will be growing (using organic, regenerative techniques) vegetables, salad and flowers on 2 acres of the Wonderful Woodlands Farm and undertaking a huge range of community activities. More details about them and their crowdfunder here: Their website is here:

They'd love help to build some new vegetable and flower beds. It's physical work - shovelling lots of compost and woodchip, but satisfying! Days are 10-4, with tea+ lunch breaks! Of course, if you can't stay the full day they will understand - just drop Rachel an email to let me know what times you can do. I won't be there on the day but have no doubt Sitopia are a friendly bunch and will make you feel welcome!

They ask all new volunteers to come at all possible at 10 for a short induction.

Helping out in our local community

Hi Goodgymers, we’ve got our first Monday evening group run / walk out. We’ve been ask to help leaflets in our community to help those who are worried about, or aren’t on how to go about getting the covid vaccine. As a community we have to keep everyone informed about how and why everyone in our community needs to be vaccinated.

Being our first get together since early last year it would be just awesome to finally run and walk with you all again. So come on, put this date in your diaries and let’s get active............ Tim
