An Inspiring Summer Of Sport
August was another record-breaking month of sport!
The Premier League is back with a bang! As well as the action on the pitch, clubs paid over £1billion in transfer fees by the close of the summer transfer window.
And who could not have been inspired by Team GB’s record-breaking performance at Rio, finishing second in the medals table with a staggering 27 golds!
It seems that many of you have been inspired by the Rio Olympics, with an increase in new gym members joining us in August and a surge in interest in our excellent gymnastics programme.
Many gym members were also inspired to enter the Road to Rio gym challenge. The challenge was to cover the distance to Rio on our cardio equipment during the Olympic fortnight. We didn’t quite manage to cover the 9351 miles, but there were some impressive individual performances, with 13 members accumulating over 50,000 moves. Those members were entered into a prize draw and Stuart Van Cuylenburgh was the lucky winner of a Technogym stability ball worth over £200!
We also ran a series of strength challenges and the male and female winners of each challenge were entered into a draw. Sam Ball won the Females’ draw and Oliver Bromley-Davenport won the males’ draw, both of whom win a gift voucher.
