Newsletter October 2019
By: Elemental Fitness Ltd
Two tournaments, several gradings, a challenge that made everyone walk like John Wayne and a new apprentice. A busy September was had with the children returning to school and holiday mode coming to an end, we now enter the final stages of 2019 and prepare ourselves for cosy nights and as always, intense winter sessions.
Team EKA attended two tournaments with some great results and awesome fight footage too. We also had our third grading of 2019 with outstanding results as always and some members going that extra mile. And on the EF side of things we had a challenge that temporarily left clients without the use of their legs as illustrated in a clip of club member Jude trying to walk and looking like a new-born foal.
Delve in and get up to date with all that is happening with Elemental Fitness and the Elemental Kickboxing Academy.
!!The top positions are in for September Challenge!!
First place is Stewart Clark pushing 75 kg 16 times in second is Jude Kirkwood-Thompson pushing 75 kg 8 times and third is Steve Butler pushing 70 kg 4 times. Check out all the final positions here on the challenge page.
Well done to all that participated and good luck in the October challenge. Here is where you will find all results throughout 2019 and the previous year’s winners.
Carrying on with the new equipment in the gym we head to the leg curl machine. Essentially the opposite of the leg extension this one works the hamstrings. Depending on how the leg extension made you feel, the leg curl is considered the more difficult of the two.
A great exercise machine to devolp the strength in hamstings which will help with reducing back pain and improve posture.
