Monthly Gym challenge

Monthly Gym challenge

Every month we like to challenge our gym-goers with an exciting gym challenge. We vary the focus of the challenge and have our friendly and knowledgable wellbeing advisors on hand to help you with a programme so you can beat your personal best each month.

August: Catch

Got tennis on the brain? Continue the fun with this month’s gym challenge!

You have 1 minute to throw a tennis ball at the wall and catch it with the opposite hand and alternate every time.

How many times can you throw and catch in 1 minute?

Speak to a Wellbeing Advisor to take part.

Good luck!

July: Stage 9

Take inspiration from the Tour de France this month and challenge yourself to 3 climbs
and a final sprint on a Wattbike.

To take part, head to the next Wattbike class or speak to your WBA for a plan to attempt the challenge without the class.

Good luck!

June: The Mile

This month we are looking for speedy runners - we want to see who can run a mile (1.6km) on a
treadmill the fastest.

You can select your own running speed and we recommend you use no more than 1% incline.

To take part, speak to your WBA to verify and record your time.

You can attempt this challenge as many times as you’d like. Good luck!

Winners:

  • Anthony Evans - 6 mins 13 secs
  • Vici Blann - 8 mins 11 secs
