Newsletter September 2019

After a very eventful August and the summer holidays now behind us it may seem like things are going to start winding down. Well not really. We have tournaments to go to, schools to teach at, gradings to cover and all the usual stuff that happens over at Elemental Fitness and the EKA. It never ends for us, so why should it end for you?

Get training with new PT James Hutchinson and work on building new strength with his specialised background in strength and conditioning. Get down to the Saturday Fight Clubs and team up with members form the different classes in the week to test you sparring ability.

Maybe even put all these things together and build yourself to compete at a tournament and start ticking off from that bucket list. Possibilities are endless why you apply yourself, and we are here to help you every step of the way!

August Challenge

!!The top positions are in for August Challenge!!

Well done to all that participated and good luck in the September challenge. Here is where you will find all results throughout 2019 and the previous year’s winners.

September Challenge

Now we have new machinery at the gym, we are going to focus on strength challenges for the remainder of the year. First up is the ‘Leg Extension’ - a machine that pours its focus into the quadriceps, and when done right with a high weight, makes you feel like you have been at sea for a good few months.

The lower body has the largest muscle group and the bonus to working on these intense leg building exercises means a higher metabolic rate, which means faster metabolism and faster way to burn body fat. Therefore, you should never skip leg day!

Back to School

With the summer ending and children getting their parents to take them to Staples® to fill their pencil cases once again, the Elemental Fitness Team join them with the numerous lunch activity classes and after school kickboxing clubs.

Last academic year we lost a major contract with Westminster C of E which was unfortunate. However, the team pushed through and are now gaining interest from other schools to run lunch sessions and after school clubs.

This is where you come in. If you are aware of any local schools to the Leeds/Bradford area that are looking for a small team to bring kickboxing clubs or lunch activity sessions, then do not hesitate to let us know. Over the last few years we have run many successful clubs and have been told that the children not only have learned a new skill through us but also have improved their school work and in some cases, those that struggled with keeping active, helped certain children improve their quality of life!
