February has continued much in the same vein as January - check our stats to see how we are doing (bottom of email). We do hope your start to the year has continued and you are getting the results you are hoping for.
We have also now implemented the InBody system so we can accurately track the progress of each of our members - and
Make accurate recommendations in exercise type and intensity as well as nutritional advice that guarantees results < - - Something many have forgotten about.
Outside of results and progress our community visited Ultimate Ninja UK in Colchester this month also and had an awesome day challenging ourselves on the apparatus. It was great to see the strength and fitness they have developed with us cross over so well to such a challenging course.
