Updates from a world full of White Noise...

Kick Start Your 2017

It’s 2017 and to kick start your year we are running a brilliant offer of one months FREE training at White Noise Gym. We’re offering one whole FREE month to come to as many group sessions you like, morning or evening, CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting or Strongman. After your first month you can then decide if the gym it is right for you. You are under no obligation to buy membership after the offer ends but if you do the prices are set out below in this mail. Please click HERE to get started. White Noise Gym is home to CrossFit Staines and Staines Weightlifting Club and is also a gym you can use for your own training. Typically the group sessions are capped at eight people per hour and you can expect one to two coaches to be on the gym floor at anyone time. This high instructor to student ratio gives you expert personal training quality tuition on hand if you need it and allows the coaches to build a personal relationship with you, the student. White Noise Gym’s sessions are unlike other typical gym classes or other larger CrossFit Boxes where the main objective is to pack out the room with paying people, where technique is lost and instruction from the coaches can be misunderstood. The weekly CrossFit timetable is as follows… Monday to Friday 6am to 7am 7am to 8am 9:30 to 10:30 Tuesday & Thursday – CrossFit Girls 6pm to 7pm* 7pm to 8pm* Saturday CrossFit Strongman 10am to 11am *Wednesday night is pure Olympic Weightlifting and is coached by Kristian McPhee U77 British Champion... read more

Why is White Noise Gym so bloody good?

Your reading this, it’s Monday morning probably or it’s late Sunday night and you should be in bed but like me but you’re not because like me your awake so I’ve decided to write this fxxxxxg email. I may sound miserable, it’s because I am. So I tried to write a list of why White Noise Gym is better than your gym or CrossFit Box or Dojo or wherever you like to hang out to get your kicks to cheer me up, and it’s actually working. So with the dog crying in the back ground because for the thousandth time when he’s been out for a walk he’s run into stinging nettles and he cannot handle the pain I’ve given you the why White Noise is better Top 10… 1. We do Crossfit, Strongman, Olympic Weightlifting & Yoga 2. You get a whole FREE month to try out as many things as you like before you decide if you want to join 3. We a have national level star studded coaching team…. for the olympic weightlifting sessions x 4. Our monthly membership is cheaper than all local CrossFit Boxes even though it really shouldn’t be 5.

BBQ Friday & C&J Competition Saturday

This weekend we have fun and games and lots of jokes… Friday WOD & Sausages – Start with an optional workout at 18:30 and then at 19:30 eat lots of BBQ’d food from our oil drum BBQ and drink lots of beer, cider and jagerbombs. It’s Paride’s and Andreea’s fault as they somewhere along the line decided to get born around the same time of year!? The festivities may go on for a long time for as we get more and more drunk… no doubt we’ll be playing house music and perhaps even some D&B or even a tiny bit of punk and then eventually dancing in slow motion. If you don’t fancy coming for training, I’ll be drinking as soon as I can so come down and keep me company while I burn all the food while they all train. Members, wives, husbands & friends of members are all invited to attend this BBQ. You can also bring down anyone you think may like to join, you know the score. Saturday Clean & Jerk Competition in Woking. Please come down and support the legend Howard Ching and the legend in the making Ciara Mac. Alistair Slark will also be there throwing some weight around for the White Noise CrossFit Staines Team. Kristian McPhee is rumoured to be in attendance. He’ll be swaning around in his cravat and spats. He likes to dress in clothes from different centuries at the same time when he’s out in public and not wearing his favourite leotard. Love you lots White Noise... read more

To those who haven’t made it

What’s happened? Are we not friends anymore?… We spoke, you were you going to come down to the gym but you didn’t make it. I wouldn’t worry about it, you haven’t let me down; so don’t feel bad. You’ve let yourself down a little bit because you’re bang up for training but don’t want to start all at the same time. It’s a bit of a nightmare isn’t it, and there’s no easy way out… You have to bite the bullet because no-one else in going to endure it for you. You will find it hard in the beginning, it will be unpleasant at times but the end result will be worth it and to be honest, you’ll actually quite enjoy it most of the time anyway. Make an appointment, just reply to this email. We want you to join, no matter how many times you’ve said you were coming but couldn’t make it because we’ve been there to. We’ve not made it lots of times. But we’re here now. Regards Paul Elliott-Smith The White Noise... read more

Imagine the camaraderie, imagine the fun!  Imagine yourself getting fitter and fitter by the day as you exercise away all your woes? You’ll become buff, people will start to fancy you more.

Has Your Gym Been Mollycoddling You?

Hello you beautiful bounder… The weather is starting to get hot and your thighs may have started to rub at the top… A bit of chubrub at the top of your thighs never fails to let you know that your New Years Resolution to get fit and lose a bit of weight for summer has gone absolutely and utterly pear shaped, just like your body has. It’s time to face the facts… Last time you were walking around Tesco’s, there was so much friction your private garden was two steps away from bursting in flames!… If this tale sounds too awfully familiar it really is time to get your very hot, very sweaty butt into the gymnasium and try to get bikini fit for the summer because… Lets be totally honest it’s 2016, man or woman you should all be comfortable wearing bikini on the beach. So fellas if you fancy getting all dressed up in drag this summer by the sea; or ladies if it looks like you’re in drag when you’re wearing a swimming costume and you really wish it didn’t, come down to the gym for some nice group training and sort that gender bending summer holiday bod’ right out. Love you… White Noise... read more

There Is No Such Thing As Overtraining

Written by Rob MacDonald – Gym Jones There is no such thing as overtraining, there is only under-recovery. Most people don’t put in enough time, effort, or train with enough intensity to put themselves in a state of overtraining. Most people simply don’t recover well enough. “Genuine overtraining” refers to a long term pattern of being overworked often times coupled with substandard recovery. There are those who may put themselves in a genuine state of overtraining. Take for example the athlete who puts in between 1000 and 1300 quality hours a year. That works out to between 19 and 25 hours per week, every week of the year, with no time off. These aren’t just junk hours either. They are quality hours. Do you train that much? Do you put in that kind of effort? Ask yourself a simple question and answer it honestly: How much do I train in an average week? Remember that just showing up to the gym for a few hours a day doesn’t mean you trained. We are talking about quality hours here. So how many quality hours do you put in per week? It probably isn’t enough to actually be overtrained. Chances are that if you think you are overtrained you are actually just under-recovered. If you want to improve then recovery must be taken seriously. The work in the gym is only a piece of the puzzle when it comes to being fit. Remember that “Training = Work + Rest”. Without adequate rest and recovery the training will become less effective and you will plateau. In my experience when people have hit... read more

The little people…

Hello there, Here are my thrilling family stories about the stars we know and love walking among us, the little people… Jeremy Kyle My daughter has been told off by Jeremy Kyle for running through Marks and Spencer’s in Windsor. After he told her off he refused to have photo’s taken. To my daughters and her friends chants of Jezzer he continued on with his food shopping. My daughter continued her game of ‘it’ with her friends unphased. Barbara Windsor Myself and my future wife met Barbara Windsor in a betting arcade in Brighton during a promotion when times were hard for bikini popping Babs. The Queen My wife experienced temporary hysteria when randomly spotting the Queen driving through London. Her wild screaming shocked our small children, passers by and the queen. The queen drove past and my wife was left bewildered and embarrassed about why she acted the way she did. To this date her actions are a mystery. Russ Abbot I once saw Russ Abbots son telling off a boy for scratching his Mercedes with his bike handle bars. The words “This is an expensive car pal” were said. He was then joined by Russ Abbot himself as they took the scared boys details in Virginia Water. Frank Muir I also once met Frank Muir in Thorpe and he told me a story. Thanks, that about wraps up the ‘star’ stories for today but let us continue chatting about gym life… This week at the gym is looking like this… Monday 6am to 6pm Open Gym 6pm to 7pm CrossFit Start 7pm to 8pm CrossFit Tuesday 6am... read more

Quick but interesting…

Welcome friend to updates or a rather quick but interesting nature… New gym space We’ve only been open a short time but it may be possible to get a new gym space. It may also be possible to double its size but I don’t think I could do it alone so I’m interested to hear from anybody who may be interested to make this work/pull this off with me. Personal Training Can you please email or text me to book in PT for the following week. Any PT blocks purchased January to October 2014 will not carry over to 2015. Lets get them used up please. Timetable Check this weeks Interactive Timetable tart britches. Book Online Can you book online for the group sessions please. Follow the link to the interactive timetable above.

It’s the new White Noise Gym website http://whitenoisegym.com Hill Sprints This Saturday we will be Hill Sprinting at 9am. Informal, free and probably quite exciting. Yoga Yoga will be restarting very shortly and hopefully I have secured one of the best teachers in the area. We had some big shoes to fill when Hannah stepped down but I do think I filled them and that I’ve had to cut the fucking toes out of the shoes because those new big yoga feet just keep poking through.

More White Noise?

Guys and Girls Someone’s approached me and I’ve been offered a space for a gym that’s double the size in Staines, 200m2 instead of the 100m2 which we have.

Speaking of Good…

It’s been good down and the gym this week. Speaking of good… CrossFit Rob has made his mark on the group this week. I have heard tales of blubbing and funny walking when leaving the gym, which come to think of it was probably happening before we even started using the warehouse for CrossFit group training considering the amount of dominatrix type behaviour that was going on down there in the not so distant past. Thinking of body fluids…. I had been struck down at the end of this week by a flu virus that could of lay waste to a heard of elephants; I kid you not. But over the weekend this has gradually been destroyed by my immune system and then eliminated by my digestive system as solid waste. ‘Put that in your pipe and smoke it’ I thought as I flushed the last remnants of the virus down into the sewer, where it belongs. Speaking of bowl movements…. A certain lovely lady in the gym has been showing off here ‘compacted’ tum-tum on Instagram this week which actually looked like she was four months pregnant it was so full. We all could breathe a collective sigh of relief when she announced she had given birth to ‘problem’. I was personally relieved that we didn’t need to do the group intervention and start off the process by giving her a bit of ‘leverage’ with the ‘back knobber’ as we had discussed only hours earlier. Speaking of the back knobbler… Body Maintenance We have some new bits of kit in the gym. The back knobber, a rather fiendish... read more

Sunday a day of rest & Atlas Stones…

Sunday a day of rest, relaxation and atlas stones… Well done to the Sunday morning atlas stone moving crew who were almost hired by a passing irish traveller on a labourers day rate of £150 per person, so amazed was he by their concrete moving prowess. This following weekend will see myself away on a CrossFit Powerlifting Course, which will of course give me chance to wear my CrossFit t-shirts and trainers, hooray! OCR Back 2 the Trenches Obstacle Course Race So far we have a team of eight confirmed. If you definitely want to come let me know and I will book us all in. You’ll be looking at completing a 6k obstacle course race in Redhill on the 2nd November. Tell me if you’d like to book and I’ll sign us in as a team so we get a discount. http://www.back2thetrenches.co.uk Knacker Cracker 10k Trail Race New Years Day This is a fancy dress race if you like, just come in your running gear if you’re a party pooper. This will fill up quickly so if you’re interested in taking on Box Hill four times then come with us. http://www.trionium.com/knackercracker/ The week ahead looks like this… Monday 6am to 6pm Open Gym Members, personal trainers or pre-arranged drop in can come down and use the gym for training. 6pm to 7pm CrossFit Start New to CrossFit and just plain rubbish at everything?

Short & Sweet…. Probably

Hello and welcome to the weekly-ish newsletter, I am going to keep this email short and sweet which usually means that it ends up being quite long and in-depth. This week was another good week at the gym or White Noise CrossFit Staines as some of you like to call it in full when we’re conversing, you cheeky full name monkeys. This week saw Paul, all round exercise guru and nice guy return to the gym for more diabolical scheming of an exercise nature. It saw Hannah depart, our Yoga teacher, our CrossFit aficionado and serial lifter of the 60kg atlas stones… “Why!” I howled when I found out, “Why must you leave us!!!” “There’s just too much going on in my life to fit in the sessions Pauly Bae” she replied “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!……….” I whispered. With that she turned and walked out of our lives. Reflecting back on the conversation perhaps if I’d just said the long drawn out ‘No’ louder she may of stayed, we’ll never know. But with Hannah departing this has seen the introduction of Rob a new CrossFit coach of such high calibre that it makes me excited just typing these words into the keyboard on how fantastic this development to the gym actually is. Welcome Rob!!

Hello Special Pants

Have you missed me? I’ve been off for the last week crying and sleeping and trying to pretend I’m on holiday, in the rain, in my own house, with my five children, and their numerous greedy friends with a broken dishwasher. Believe me when I say it’s going to be good to get back, because… I fucking mean it. Now I’m restructuring slightly and this will probably take the rest of September to implement but we will have the following developments… CrossFit on five nights a week Monday to Friday. CrossFit starting early mornings. CrossFit Kids Saturday morning. Yoga & CrossFit Strongman Sunday morning. More coaches for your training enjoyment Specific conditioning sessions which will include more running A White Noise CrossFit Team to go to CrossFit comps and support to individuals who wish to do this I’ll keep you unto date with the new schedule as it’s put together and email you out at the weekend.

…lately I’ve been quite enjoying it

Hello, I’m here again lurking in your inbox, and I must say lately I’ve been quite enjoying it. This week was quite a good week in the gym, some good sessions were nailed. There was a severe amount of muscle flexing, eye boggling in fact. I did find myself saying quite a bit, “Ohhhhh, those biceps make my eyes water, and don’t get me started on your triceps; absolutely magnificent”, to anybody that would listen. I did a lot of training just in my Speedo’s to feel like those body builders on the interwebs. It did start to catch on in the end, with more people coming in bronzed and in skimpy swimming costumes. CrossFit FREE Trial This week is the last week to let me know if you want to try the group sessions FREE for a month. Personal Training PT is full now, I can’t take any more people on.

Gym is haunted…

A look back at this week… Well done everybody for an epic week of fitness at the White Noise Gym in Staines. White Noise CrossFit Staines membership rapidly grows in numbers. I did a five day vegetable & fruit juice detox (yes folks no solid food for five days) which almost had me crying not once, but twice.

Cheese…

Let us examine the evidence. Cheese. Now before we get into that age old argument about cheese and come to blows over it like I have so many times before, I am going to make such a resounding wall of defence or attack (look on it how you will) against cheese that it may well have you getting up (after reading this email) barging past your cheese defending spouse and throwing your own block cheese into the bin. What is cheese? It’s full of flavour, nutty, mild yet strong milk proteins. Hard or soft, yummy…. No, no, no. It happened like this, picture it…. Man 6000 years ago, two men hiding in a shrub carefully contemplating their next move on the savanna, close to starvation… “I’m starving, I’ve eaten berries and rabbit today and eaten half a giant coconut, what else is there to eat” “There is just that, berries and rabbit and giant coconuts” “There’s not, there’s also that white stuff that comes out of the cows tits” “Yes there is the white stuff from the cows tits but I hate drinking from the cows tits… And I hate drinking from goats tits as well” “Tits are for babies” “Yeah….” “Last time we drank from the animal tits we did feel full” “Yeah, and it was a laugh, it made me feel high but did give me the shits the next day” “FFS, okay lets do it; it is Friday night” “I almost died from an angry cow attack last time though…” “I know we’ll have to be careful, no more suckling like a calf…too risky” “Why don’t... read more

Greetings you sexy beast…

Greetings you sexy beast, There’s been so much happening at the gym in the last few weeks I’ve hardly had time to put finger tip to keyboard to tell you all about it… But here I am, doing just that right now whilst being bugged by a child who’s pretending to be Slender Man, breathing in the neighbours bonfire that all seems to be plumbing directly from there smouldering mound of fuck knows what and defying the laws of physics to somehow be completely sucked into my open patio doors. None of the smoke is going into the atmosphere; how is this possible? And to top it off the dog wants me to play with his football, closely staring at me, letting me know he’s there frequently by dropping rancid dog smells, yes boy I smell you. I smell you so loud and so clear. Now aside from the distractions I still have put together this luscious round up for you.. But firstly let us ponder a while on the below statements from two different visitors to the gym before we get going… “This is the best CrossFit gym I’ve ever been to. No other CrossFit Box around here has got gear like this”  “I keep looking around and seeing new things, this is amazing; there is so much gym equipment in here.”   Letting that set the tone I now drop the discount bombshells that I’ve been keeping secret all weekend…   Monthly Gym Membership   6am to 9pm access to the best equipped gym for real training in the area starts at £30pcm. Yes, £30 that not a typo (but... read more

When I was a nipper…

When I was a nipper I used to climb onto the roof of my dad’s escort van and jump the ditch that ran along the single lane dirt track road than ran parallel with our row of houses. I thought I was brave as the ditch was filled with high stinging nettles; thick with stinging nettles, ones taller than my little self. I used to do this in just my red pants, just like Tarzan would wear. I also used to scream the Tarzan scream, the one he used to scream when he swung though the trees. One day I fucked up, misjudged the jump from the roof of my dad’s van and jumped into the ditch filled with stinging nettles just in my pants and stung myself to bits, screaming, trying to crawl out, pain everywhere. I did go back to the roof of the van but the buzz had gone, the fall had ruined it for me. I had let the one set back put me off, I had stopped believing the fantasy and the jumping wasn’t fun anymore. The thing is now I look back and think If I hadn’t stopped believing, if I had searched newer and higher places to jump from I wouldn’t be just sitting here typing this. I’d be in some jungle somewhere swinging through some trees, I’d be the bonafide fucking Tarzan. This week the gym’s timetable looks a little like this…   Monday 6am to 9pm Open Gym & PT   Tuesday 6am to 7:30pm Open Gym & PT 7:30pm to 8:30pm CrossFit   Wednesday 6am to 9pm Open Gym... read more

Hilarity Slacking

I’ve been a little slack recently on my hilarious updates and I know, it’s not fair is it, I’ve neglected you. And you’re special, we’re all special in our own unique way. There are some great things happening at the moment which should see you with access to a quality gym and some fantastic training at a very reasonable price. The main changes to the schedule will be dedicated gym access evenings when before we’ve had group. I’m also expanding the times the groups will run so we will eventually have multiple group sessions daily as the client base builds but also gym access to people who don’t necessarily want group sessions but still love a good free weight gym. Gym membership This is the first time a box with CrossFit affiliation has run a gym only membership and is an exciting development. We now have dedicated open gym access to the facility for £35pcm on the following times. Monday – 6am to 9pm Tuesday* – 6am to 7pm Wednesday – 6am to 9pm Thursday* – 6am to 7pm Friday – 6am to 6pm Saturday – 7am to 4pm Sunday – Closed   *Tuesday & Thursday no access between 10am and 11am (women only)   CrossFit, Strongman & Olympic Weight Lifting Timetable.

!!! Overview of English Football & Other Updates !!!

Firstly before we start can I just thank the England Football Team for delivering a once in a lifetimes performance last night. It really was spellbinding. I could liken it to a spell that hopefully burn out my retinas and render me deaf and dumb so I didn’t have to watch another two halves of that utter crap for as long as we both shall live. I’ve been married, by birth, to a football team who constantly fail to deliver on every level and who’s players combined yearly salary could save Sudan. Why people? Why do you watch football? I’m sorry to break you the bad news but, it’s utter nonsense. I dislike football as you might of gathered but I have watched two halves of the world cup. The first half of their (our?!) first game and the second half of the game just gone. First game I fell asleep it was so exciting and yesterdays game I wished that I was asleep. Well done Rooney for your first goal, you fucking over paid potato and well done for the totally despondent interviews afterwards. The realisation that a nation had wasted a total of £1 each on on English flags we’d now have to keep flying proudly on our wing mirrors for the duration of the tournament weighing heavy of everyones shoulders. On another note I’ve opened a new gym in Staines. You can decide if you win or lose by how many times you turn up. It really is the bollocks, honestly. Come down and train, this week I’m going to send you some fantastic offers to... read more

Something very special

Tonight, something very special is happening. Hannah, lovely lady, lots of talent is taking the 7:30pm CrossFit session. Hannah is a LVL1 CrossFit coach and has consistently wowed us with her amazing feats of strength, power and endurance. Sam Balchin another lovely lady is taking you for Olympic Lifting at 8:30pm because she’s so good at and it she’s got an English bronze medal. Her skills are basically ditto all of the above but she’s also got a bronze medal. Come down to Olympic Weight Lifting tonight and you may just catch a glimpse of the medal flashing under her tracksuit top.   Regards Paul Elliott-Smith The White Noise Gym   Gym – CrossFit – Personal Training – Strongman – CrossFit... read more

Good afternoon you handsome devil you, I think you could be best described as a ‘Bobby Dazzler’, yes you could… come here and you can kiss my hand.

Anyway…. moving on, well done to the girls for doing so well in this mornings CrossFit ‘Domantrix’ WOD, it was a bit of a bitch and definitely wasn’t taking no for an answer but it was definitely smashed and in style, great stuff.

Staines gym is nearly finished

Good evening and I do hope your muscles are looking good, Today at the gym refurbishment things are nearing completion. Emma, Annie, Ana & Mark all showed up to work on the project. Mark went topsy turvy Mark insisted on doing all the glossing, don’t know why; I think it’s because he’s from New Zealand and he’s spent so much time standing on his head…. as any sane person will know, glossing is a pain in the ass. Anyway, half way through the glossing he then started playing topsy turvy land saying he didn’t want to do the glossing but really he did, we knew he was just pretending so we joined in his funny game saying we all really wanted to do the glossing but really we didn’t at all. Then we all laughed but Mark didn’t, he just carried on with the glossing looking sad but really he was happy ‘cause he was all topsy turvy. When he finished the glossing he looked happy but really he was sad, so I gave him some more glossing to do which made him sad, which meant he was happy in his game. When he finished he said he wasn’t coming back tomorrow because I’d made him do glossing all day but he was still playing topsy turvy land so he is definitely coming back tomorrow. Nice one Mark and well done for keeping up the pretence all day, I couldn’t of done it. Rubber floor With the painting basically completed we started laying the rubber flooring which is now laid apart from the cuts. Good stuff. More gear With the... read more

Athletes, Prowler Aficionados and Couch Potatoes

We have reached the end of an era. Strongman Sunday today was my last session at the BIZ Runnymede in Chertsey and to be completely honest I’m quite glad and raring to get the new gym up and running. Now that’s not to say that the recent process hasn’t been a little annoying and overwhelming at times. Mid-week last week was a low point, I was generally thinking, ‘FFS, help me I am still in the middle of a building site’ and I had also quite an anxious day towards the end of the week after drinking five shots of coffee. At this time I was thinking, ‘What the f*ck have I done, this project is never going to work, I’m ruined, RUINED. You’ve had some f*cking stupid ideas in the past but this, this one takes the crown, you moronic bastard’ Well, hahaha…. I can laugh about it now, hahahahahaaaaa….hmmmmmm Now I’ve been blessed with lots of offers of help this week which I really do appreciate so I’m letting you know what’s occurring over the next five days. The main bulk of the work the week just gone has been the strip out. It has taken me longer to strip out that I first thought because of the amount of materials that had to be removed, tonnes. The rough plan is as follows…   Monday Delivery of Vulcan rubber flooring. There are 40 mats and each matt is 6’x4’ and weighs 44kg. They need to be moved inside. Delivery of Cardio Equipment Skip Collected Floor adhesive scraped off the concrete floor. Female toilet suite removed Horizontal soil... read more

Fucking hell, what a week.

Updates of a general nature The BIZ Runnymede’s (where I currently reside) foundations looked extremely rocky this week as a vote on no confidence removed Brian (small hairy gnome fellow) the chairman and forced him to resign. Various other bits of information that have subsequently come out this week have boggled my mind to put it mildly. The looming and immanent demolition of the whole site, the current leadership and other problems that the BIZ Runnymede now face have left me under no illusion in the slightest, it is a great and well timed move to abandon ship. New gym updates I’m looking at opening up on the 1st May, I now have the keys and have started to rip things out of the building. Hopefully I can get most of the stuff sorted by the start of May. I know that some of you in the past have offered to put investment into the project either for a return or for 100% free lifetime access. If the offers still stand I would love to talk them over with you. Also if you’ve not thought about this until now and it sounds like a goer please get in contact. Address of the new unit is below in the ‘signature’. New gym personal training offer I’m offering rom now until the end of May 10 x PT sessions for £200. This is to attract new PT clients to the gym in Staines so if you would like to take me up on my offer please contact me asap. This offer can be used in Chertsey at the moment and Staines... read more

Fat Gut & Massive Arse

It’s the 22nd January already. How’s 2014 been? That resolution you made to go training more, yeah that one that you’ve been trying to forget about; how’s that one going? How’s that fat gut and that massive arse you were sporting in 2013? You going to grow it this year? How’s that tricep under hang, lift up your arm… Is it bingo time yet, has RedBull given you wings? Well if it has, spread those wings and fly my bulbous beauty, fly down to the gym. Put on those old trainers, pull on your lycra training suit, put on your leg warmers, grow a mullet and perm your hair real tight cause yes, it’s exercise time in Chertsey town and we are going to exercise like it’s 1984. I am your Mr Motivator (okay not quite 1980’s), I am your Richard Simmonds, I am your Green Goddess. I come to you now in my special leotard, extraordinarily camp and with knee high bright pink CrossFit socks that denote the depth of my squats for the joyous weekly updates… Reviews on Facebook I know I have asked this before and I don’t want to piss you off as I know the request is slightly annoying but can you leave reviews or stars on the Paleo Training Bible Facebook page if you think I deserve them. Both would be great but just stars are fine. If you want to leave one star because you hated what I’m doing so much can let me know how you feel and why, otherwise I can’t change things.

Haggis Poem

So here we are in the middle of January and I can’t help but think it’s a little bit shit isn’t it? The only bonus is that it’s only eight days until Burns night, a fantastic Scottish night where I traditionally swallow a gluten free Haggis whole like a bloated tablet and sip a wee dram of whiskey with my best mate Rabbie. He, he, he, everyone knows a Rabbie…. Rabbie, Rabbie, Rabbie. Rabbie a true scotsman, kilt no undies, once told me the Scottish poem about the origins of the haggis. It (the haggis) apparently was born from the unholy and deadly union between a rabbit and a goat. I’ve never forgotten the poem or Rabbie, who was named after the rabbit in this dark ode to the haggis… Rabbie the Rabbit, The Rabbit monger. Stealer of wind swept rabbit kisses. High on the heath stalked a lonely goat, A shadow of a goat A rabbit hanging from his throat. Death by the paws of a vicious rabbit. Rabbie, Rabbie, Rabbie. Cloven hoofs twitching, A four leafed clover. Buck teeth tearing the under udder. Enter the haggis, Beautiful haggis, We just witnessed the birth of a haggis. Yes, I must admit it is a rare piece of poetry and quite spell binding with the beautiful imagery it conjures in just those few lines. Now lets take a moment to think about that poor goat before we move on to this weeks newsletter…. Thank... read more

!!Happy New Year!!

Welcome to Wednesday 2014. Funny day to start a new year on really, would have been much better on a Monday. Now, you’ll probably be reading this email in one of two states. I’m not talking directly to our international holidaying or american friends here I’m talking more about ‘state of mind’. You may of had the self-control, the reserve, or been festively saintly, not letting your world crumple into a pile of festive nonsense this Xmas. You may not have spent all your money and more on christmas presents, crying into your third bottle of Bailey’s and buried your face into tray after tray of buttery mince pies. You may of kept training; running, lifting weights or you may of forgot any of that ridiculous training stuff happened back in 2013. I mean what the f*ck were we all doing? Jumping, he made us jump, up high, until we smashed our shins in… Really?! It’s all so far way now anyway, it’s a distant memory and I feel like a different person…. But that’s it isn’t it, you feel like a different person too. There’s so much more of you to hold now, so much more to love. Folds of fleshy skin drape down over the top of your jeans like meaty bedroom curtains. Some of you, the ones we shall not name will not be able to fit into your 2013 jeans opting instead for new tracksuit bottoms that you had to walk to Tesco’s in Addlestone half naked to buy. Hiding embarrassed and in shame behind holly bushes and bunches of berryless, discarded mistletoe, as you... read more

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. Olympic Weight Lifting with Sam Balchin 7:30pm Thursday 12th December £10 An Olympic Lifting session so staggering and beautiful it may have you quivering on the floor gasping for more when it’s over.

CrossFit HQ in the USA love Paleo Training Bible so much they want us to be a CrossFit Affiliate. They’ve sent me a proper email and everything saying welcome aboard. Dong….

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... read more

This Email is Very Unpleasant.

WARNING – This email is very unpleasant. Delete it NOW if you would like to stay positive 🙁 Open up your advent calendars guys and dolls it’s the 1st December. If you’re wealthy you’ll have a chocolate behind every door, if you’re poor you just have festive pictures; but that’s okay. If you’re a fucking adult hopefully you won’t have an advent calendar at all. It’s just for kids, so just do us all a favour and grow up this year, you great big foolish baby. Let us continue with the festive cheer… Strongman Sunday 1st December 10am £5 This session is going to be on the barbells. We’ll be going heavy and working out our 1RM on three lifts. Hard & heavy is the name of the game, but it’s not really a game. Strongwoman Monday 2nd December 10am £5 CrossTraining straight from the CrossFit WOD library. Men can come but must be disguised in at least a padded bra and wig. We’ll make it more interesting and stipulate that if they are discovered a severe festive beating will be dished out, with bells on. Ho, ho, ho. Hill Sprint Tuesday 3rd December 10am £FREE This session in XC in the cold and mud. Usually we train in a moody silence apart from when we’re laughing at the person who is crawling up the hill last as we’re all staring down at them from the top of the hill looking very strong and fit. New comers are welcome, the more newbies that come the merrier we are… when we’re at the top looking down on you. CrossTraining Wednesday... read more

TFI Friday 6pm to 7pm Gone Off This session has been cancelled as mostly everyone comes to the 5pm on Friday and they always have done so it’s pointless to keep it going TBH 🙂 CrossTraining Bracknell Come December I will also be doing CrossTraining and Strongman sessions over in the FW Urban Gym in Bracknell.

Just a Quickie

This is a quickie but also paradoxically a little bit of a longie. I have filled it full of the usual spelling mistakes so it’s a little bit difficult to read, enjoy! This week has been a bit of a weird one. There has been a sickness bug floating around and a few people including myself have been feeling ill during training, which has not been great for any of us. Hopefully now we have seen the back of this sicky, shitty bug and we can get back to some proper training unhindered by the fear of changing our under-crackers halfway through the WOD’s or barfing onto the tarmac. Lets roll…. Strongman Sunday 10am 20th October £5 We’ll be outside if it ain’t raining doing something amazing and incredibly tough. A great strength building session. Tuesday WOD 22nd October 5pm £5 This Tuesday will be the last session I run on this day. The clocks go back the weekend after so it will be dark outside and I’ve decided to knock this on the head for the time being as on Tuesday’s we can’t use inside. If you want to train on Tuesday evening please come to BoxFit that is run by Mark & Carl at the BIZ. This starts at at 7:30pm and is popular because it’s a well delivered and demanding. Cost £5. Thursday Olympic Lifting 6:30pm Thursday 24th October £10 Sam, a lovely lady and English bronze medalist in Olympic Lifting has started a lifting club at the BIZ. The session was good last week, she had us doing squat cleans and we touched on snatches.... read more

Full Moon Party

TFFI Friday Sessions – 23rd August – 5pm & 6pm – £4 We’re at the end of the week now folks and we’ve been tormented by the full moon. Sleepless nights, unexplained happenings and lunacy in general has plagued or very existence. Come and get back to reality with a nastily put together WOD just for your enjoyment. The Friday session is just £4 CrossFit Strongman Course – CrossFit Clitheroe I will be leaving you all lying on the grass on Friday and getting straight into my car and driving up to Clitheroe in the North of England to take the CrossFit Strongman course that’s being held on Saturday. It should be good fun and will involve technique and training for all kinds of Strongman lifts and events. This will be put straight into our Strongman Sunday sessions. Sunday Strongman Boy’s v Girl’s – 25th August – 10am – £5 Fresh from a Strongman course in Clitheroe I will bring you updated strongman shenanigans to crush your very soul. In a nice way; that’s scaleable…. We’ll be putting into practice some proper Strongman/Strongwoman teamwork at the Paleo Training Bible sessions this Sunday so come prepared to shift some heavy weight. Your team is going to depend on you, so come prepared to work hard. When is a Gym a Box? The old redundant school wall bars that the BIZ have clung onto for far too long are being taken down in the next couple of weeks to make way for some more kit in the gym.
