Traps for Father Christmas

Many years ago when I was an innocent child and I yearned for Father Christmas to fall into one of the traps I set for him around the house on Christmas Eve, I was also an avid letter writer and Argos catalogue peruser. I would find the toys I desired in ‘The Argos’, cut them out carefully and stick them onto paper with a written description next to them. This colourful list I would then send to the happy, white haired old gentleman who could be found routinely in children’s bedrooms giving them presents. No, not Jimmy Saville, the Coke-a-Cola swigging Saint Nick of course, ho, ho, ho…. Christmas is a coming 🙂 Times have indeed changed and this year, I have no list and I no longer believe in Jimmy Saville. But most importantly I have not been shown christmas lists from my children but instead I have had the pleasure of the christmas power point presentation. Page after page of stunning graphics and sweeping images. I am under no illusion of what my children want and require this Xmas…. less free time. Some of those presentations were so long I needed a tub of popcorn and a toilet break. Anyway, let us get on with the final updates for 2013.… Women’s WOD 10am Thursday 12th December £5 CrossTraining so unbelievable it may curl your toes just thinking about how amazing it really is.

CrossFit Chertsey

Just a quick CrossFit update for you… CrossFit has agreed to licence CrossFit Chertsey to me as an affiliate. I have signed the contractual agreement with CrossFit HQ and have purchased the http://www.crossfitchertsey.com domain. I wasn’t 100% sure on the name as you may know but for a few different reasons I won’t bore you with have decided to go with it for now. I’m not going to be able in the future to run things all on my own and will be operating an in-house training policy. This basically means I would like the people who come to the gym and train regularly to consider if they would like to be involved more than they are now. I will be asking trainee’s to help me with demo’s more now in 2014 and I would also like regular trainee’s to think about applying for CrossFit LVL1 qualifications if this is something that they are interested in doing. I now have to put £1828 of my money where my mouth is for the privilege of owning the CrossFit Chertsey label for one...
