Sonny Webster Olympic Lifting Workshop
We are very excited to announce that on Saturday 21st January 2017 we will be hosting an Olympic Lifting Workshop with Sonny Webster. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from from a GB Team Olympia. Sonny was the only male lifter to represent the UK in Rio this year. A lifter with many years of elite experience will certainly be someone worth learning from. The workshop will begin at 10.30am and cover practical work on both the Snatch and Clean & Jerk as well as a demo and Q&A. For more information and to book a ticket click here...

Member Of The Month (September 2016) Stephen Hicks
Stephen joined Connect a year ago almost to the day. Coming from a mainly running and rugby background Stephens experience of sport and fitness was a little different from the CrossFit method. I'm so pleased that he's embraced the method whole heartedly, as his results are becoming clear for all to see. To read more on Stephen click here...
Member Of The Month (August 2016) Joshua Packham
Josh started training with Connect at the beginning of the year and has already made excellent progress. Consistent training is really benefiting Josh and his progress in both technique and understanding of the movements has become very clear to see.
