Highlights of 2017 and a taste of things to come!
It’s been a busy year for us at MYGYM. We’ve loved welcoming new members and having great times with MYGYM veterans in equal measure!
We thought it might be nice to document a handful of the many highlights of 2017. There’s some exciting things happening over the course of 2018 too, so please get in touch with us (details below) if you’d like further details.
Our Olympic Taekwondo club has gone from strength to strength this year. MYGYM founder Ibb has coached some incredible individuals, some of which have even competed nationally and internationally this year with great success! Bring on more gold medals for our club in 2018!
Artemis BJJ start a women’s only class: It was a great achievement for our resident Brazilian Jiu Jitsu club when they began a women’s class. It can sometimes be daunting as a female to take up a martial art, especially when they are often so male-dominated. This has allowed more women to feel supported in learning a martial art before going to kick-ass with the mixed group!
Deadlift Divas, the women’s weightlifting group who train at MYGYM, have gone from strength to strength this year all thanks to Diva leader and Powerlifting champion Christie Civetta. Sadly Christie has left Bristol now for pastures new, but the spirit of the club is still very much alive and we are still welcoming ladies to come and train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Join the Facebook group here for more information.
Olympic Lifting at MYGYM has been going from strength to strength. Our resident Olympian Sonny Webster continues to train here, as does GB lifter Edmond Avetisyan. We also held our first ever Olympic Lifting Open back in November and plan to do more this coming year! Huge thanks to Pete Larsen and all who put masses of their time and effort into making the day run so well.
6 Week Challenge success
Last but not least, our 6 Week Challenges have seen some amazing results for the determined people who have signed up wanting to make positive changes to their diet an fitness goals! We have more challengers starting with us on the 8th January, with many continuing to use the gym and follow our eating programmes even after the programme has ended. Big up to all of our staff and members who have helped provide coaching, advice and support for this life transforming plan!
Watch this space and add us on Facebook for the latest news and upcoming events. Happy New Year from all of us at MYGYM. Here’s to a fit and strong 2018. Thank you to all our members for being part of our amazing and friendly community. It would just not be the same without you here!
