!!The top positions are in for December Challenge!!
1st place goes to Keith Hill with a time of 23:07.0 2nd place goes to Tom Clark with a time of 26:21.0 and 3rd place goes to James McNamara with a time of 26:41.0. Check out all the final positions here on the challenge page.
Well done to all that participated and good luck in the January challenge. Here is where you will find all results throughout 2018 and the previous year’s winners.
The first challenge of 2019. Going back to the roots of the Elemental Fitness challenges and going for the longest plank… with a twist. Are you ready?
This time the warm-up has been dialled to 11 to get your core muscles ready with some intense core workouts. Then when you finish that you’ll be in plank position for as long as you can hold it, with 25% of your body weight on your back!
Longest held plank wins and sets you up for the 2019 challenges getting you closer to those end of year prizes.
Drum roll please… in third place for 2018 with 122 points we have Kerry Berry, in second with 129 points is Martyn Lee and in the first place, the champion of 2018 is…both Keith Hill and Tom Clark with 141 points!
This means we will need to carry the 2018 challenge into 2019 with a sudden death mega challenge to decide the winner and remove one to secind place - The quickening, perhaps?. Both Keith and Tom will now have to do 3 challenges: one they both did best in and one they were near equal in.
The challenges are in no particular order: The Chest Press Ladder, 3km Uphill Run and The Sled Push. These will take place in their own personal training sessions.
Once completed we will have only one rightfull winner... in the words of The Kurgan - "There can be only one".
This also means Kerry will be moved from third to fourth unfortunately but until then, she is on the podium regardless.
2018 Best bits for Elemental Fitness
It has been a big year for Elemental Fitness. Both David and James have been working tirelessly on improving the business and services for clients.
Earlier in the year they expanded their work with schools around Leeds and Bradford obtaining an amazing contract with Westminster C of E Primary. Along with the other schools this allows the team at Elemental Fitness to broaden their horizons with the services they offer.
Back at base we procured even more fancy equipment to enhance clients training sessions. These include the battle ropes, treadmill, the focus master and many more. Along with equipment we have done some house cleaning and made the look of the over the year more varied and pleasant with a new shop area, some new posters and fancy digital timer.
It hasn’t been just the gym we improved, our online presence has skyrocketed with the flashy new website that web development company Blue Mantis help build. And it didn’t stop there, we brought the EF leader-board into the 21st century making that digital too.
To top it all off and really stand out, Elemental Fitness got their own branded van to market their services and give that lovely professional finish.
2019, What to expect at Elemental Fitness
Looking forward into the year expect to see the online presence of Elemental Fitness to grow with new online portals for members to track measurements and goals as well as improving client bookings with new online booking systems to help the flow of the business advance and develop on client sessions and increase client satisfaction!
Elemental Fitness will also be increasing its work with new and old schools. By February they will be working with 6 different schools helping children with lunch activity, understanding the importance of health and fitness, and after school clubs teaching kickboxing.
To finish off we will be adding another filming project to the calendar which will showcase the personal training side of the business, like last years promotional video for the EKA. We’ll all be movie stars by 2020!
That’s not it though, we have more planned and most exciting for us are the things that are not planned for 2019!
What are you most excited about? let us know on our Facebook Page.
