Oh yes. Lee is training. This is how the greatest atheletes on earth are made. Lee is making it happen. They logged their first training run on the GoodGym site; extraordinary things are sure to follow.
Happy New Year! Everyone was pleased to kick off GG22! What better way to begin the year, than with a training session to burn off all of the additional calories consumed recently. Also, fulfilling everyone's new year fitness revolutions!
We began the evening with a short warm-up. We then went for a 4k run, revolving Papagayo. It was then time for our HITT revolutions. We went around the group, each choosing an exercise.
- Star jumps - Skaters - Lunges - Criss cross - Spotted dog
- Knee to elbow jumps
We finished the evening with drinks, chips and cake, with a little birthday celebration for Samina.
Happy new year - we are back.
This week we are kicking off things with a training session to be led by our wonderful taskforce/run leader Liz.
NOW MEETING AT PAPAGAYO CAFE see updated address. 6.45pm to start at 7pm - please try to bring a few items as possible but we should still be able to store valuables.

A fab foursome met on Monday night for a fab fitness session . Liz, Tabitha, Helen and Lee braved the cold yet again for some Monday night fun. There was no task this week, but that didn't stop us from getting out.
Liz led a warm up then we headed off for a run around the local area . Helen took the lead and led us on a great 4 k run of the area . Once we made it back and caught our breath, then the Christmas fitness began , Liz and Tabitha had prepared a session based on the twelve days of Christmas song using the following exercises :
One Standing burpee Two Spotted dogs Three Elbow knees Four jumping Squats #Five Star jumps
Six Skaters skating
Seven Windmills waving
Eight Single leg deadlifts Nine side crunches Ten High knees Eleven walking lunges Twelve Straight arm Punches
Liz kept us on track and played some Christmas tunes and we managed to make it through all twelve days without collapsing . Helen then pulled it out the bag again with some chocolates for us all! What a treat!
12 days of Christmas! Join us for a festive themed workout!
PLEASE REMEMBER TO SIGN UP - YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND IF YOU DO NOT SIGN UP HERE
We'll still be meeting at Papagayo but please find everyone on the outside area in front of the pub. You can still leave valuables but the run leaders or Taskforce will help with this to prevent any unnecessary congregation inside - do be prepared for the weather!
Lee has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.
We met outside Papagayo for a short warm-up before we ran to Cricklewood. We were greeted by Marie. Her instructions were for some people to 'weed', for others to clean up after they had 'weed' and for others to spray the roots once the weeding had been completed.
We were given tools and quickly set to work. Before long, it was time for our weekly photo shoot!
There was lots of time remaining, so Liz lead a HITT fitness session.
- Knee to elbow jumps - Squat jumps - Star jumps - Squat punches - Skatters Two rounds, then it was time to run back to Papagayo.
