At home workouts to Feb 3rd to Feb 10th

Wed 10 Feb

So with so much fitness content out there on Youtube it can be a bit overwhelming to know which ones to choose. If you're anything like me you spend longer researching which one to do than you do doing it!

So each week I'll be selecting 3 workouts for you to complete and share with the group how it went. I'll try and get a balance of cardio, strength and yoga/pilates type sessions. If you have any suggestions of your own, please do share and I'll pop them in next week!

  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-sy0W6NOs0 (45 minute learn how to jive!)

  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ux9qFC5cPro (19 minutes hip mobility for runners)

  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4HbeyDChFw (20 minutes full body strength workout)

Wrapper's Delight

Tue 8 Dec
Report written by Amro

For our first mission after lockdown, five Brighton Goodgymers (Abi, David, Rosie, Tara and Amro) ran/walked and cycled to Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project (BUCFP) that provides practical support, education, advice and much more to struggling families living in challenging conditions.

We were warmly welcomed by Judy and Joy, who explained to us our task which was to help them wrap Christmas gifts donated by multiple charities to be distributed to kids from the families they support.

We worked in teams; Abi and myself wrapped gifts for kids aged 4 to 6, Rosie and David wrapped gifts for kids aged 5 to 7, while Tara took on wrapping gifts for kids aged 8+.

Time passed quickly between selecting toys, matching them with the kids' name list and wrapping them with festive paper while chatting about our upcoming plans for the holidays. Rest assured that all the kids were on Santa's Nice list for the year 2020.

We finished the task very quickly and Judy & Joy (who offered us warm drinks and chocolates to boost our energy) were thrilled with the outcome and said that it made them feel lifted up knowing that the task of wrapping gifts is out of their way in preparation for the Christmas gifts distribution event they are having on Sunday.

We said our goodbyes to the lovely ladies at BUCFP and headed on our separate ways feeling happy and rather festive after completing this mission.

W-rappers Delight By Amro Tabari A Brighton State of Mind (The Christmas Hip Hop) Yeah, yeah Ayo, my people, it's time to rap Straight outta the festive dungeons of the upcoming COVID jab

Another GoodGym mission to fill the gap

The Gifts drop deep so does my skid I run, 'cause to run is what I did Beyond the walls of toys, life is defined. I think of Christmas gift wrapping when I'm in a Brighton state of mind.

Hope the lifts got some shifts. My ifs don't like no dirty cliffs. Run up to the petroglyphs and get the riffs.

In a Brighton state of mind. What more could you ask for? The enthusiastic Gifts? You complain about cold weather and the windy cliffs. I gotta love it though - somebody still speaks for the riffs.

I'm rappin' to the Christmas, And I'm gonna move your isthmus.

Nice and naughty, like a Santa Girl, I tell ya, I thought you were a Fanta.

I can't take the cold weather but can take the Gift Wrapping. I woulda tried to wrap but I guess I got no tapping.

I'm rappin' to the isthmus, And I'm gonna move your Christmas.

Yea, yaz, in a Brighton state of mind.

Going to Town

Tue 10 Nov
Report written by Tara Shanahan

One of the many great things about Goodgym is it gets you to the parts of your city that other running clubs just don't reach!

And whilst our group activity is suspended for lockdown 2 we set ourselves the challenge of collecting as many names of UK cities and towns named in Brighton & Hove street signs as we could.

Over the past week 9 of us managed to seek out a whopping 74 such street signs on our walk/run/cycle and in doing so learnt a lot more about both the geography of our city and the country we live in!

We added a little competive element, mainly so David could win something, which indeed he did, collecting 23! Juliet was second with 16, followed by yours truly with 12!

Boom 101!

Tue 27 Oct
Report written by Tara Shanahan

Celebrations all round tonight as David turned 50 something and 101 on the same evening and that’s just three days after turning 100! I’ll leave it up to you guys to decide if he will be receiving a telegram from the queen or a new Goodgym winged t-shrt in the post this week!

We all wish David a very happy birthday and I for one am very thankful for all of his hard work and commitment to Goodgym over the past few years. I really hope you enjoyed the firework display we organised to celebrate!

A great task for us tonight with lots to do and lots of space for us to do it. - and ginger biscuits and chocolate chip cookies!!! Local councillor Kate has established a social supermarket in St George’s Hall in Moulsecoomb providing cheap food to local residents. But the grounds of the building are looking a little tatty and neglected so that’s where we came in.

Jobs included weeding the pathways around the building, cutting back some out of control clematis, weeding a herb garden, lopping back some big shrubs, scraping, sweeping, bagging up and generally giving the place a good spruce up.

Kate was astonished at how much we achieved. With 18 of us working hard for one hour, by my reckoning that’s 3 days labour once you take out all the tea breaks and head scratching! We left about 18 bags of weeds and cuttings to be collected and disposed of by the council, plus loads more that went through the chipper. The front entrance to the building looking much smarter, but still lots to do round the back so we will back soon!

A few of us rounded off the evening by heading to the Gladstone pub to finish the celebrrations. It was a a shame we couldn’t all sit together like in the old days but I can confirm that the inside table was where the party was at! Big thanks to Social Secretary Rosie for organising.

Putting a rake on the fly tipping.

Sat 24 Oct
Report written by David Richards

11 of us revisited Tenantry Down Road and its notorious fly tipping site including new recruit Diego all the way from Northern Spain. Holà Diego. Our council contact Gary split us into 3 groups with the aim of cutting back some of the excess vegetation at the top of the road and raking back leaves and earth to reveal some of the more hidden and historical delights that have been left here by people in their infinite wisdom. We came up with the moniker "rubbish archaeologists"...not bad purveyors of the science you understand...rather ones who dig up detritus and awfulness. Amongst our finds today were plastic drainpipes, more tyres, an old mattress, more builders rubble, two chairs and the usual array of plastic and wood. It still amazes this writer, even on his 100th task, that people resort to the wanton destruction of our local environment. However, as I sit here writing this in the prescence of my father on his 87th birthday who's taking a nap after cake and wine, I firmly believe that we, the good ones, outnumber those who are lazy, can't be bothered and have no regard for the planet and our green spaces. I left the task today with my heart full of hope, incredibly grateful for Goodgym and looking forward to my next 100 tasks in rain or shine.
