Women's Fitness on Wednesdays, 10.15am

This session changes each week, working on different aspects of fitness. Strength, speed, agility...it's a good all rounder.

We do stuff with kettlebells and medicine balls, skipping ropes and plenty of flying solo with our bodyweight. Some pad and bag work because we're in a boxing gym and most people who walk through our doors want to hit something for at least a few rounds before they feel like they've been there.

It's currently limited to 8 people, a small, friendly group with not an ounce of  baby pink lycra in sight.


If you'd like to come and train with us, text Kate 077 3243 3243

Wednesday Warriors as from 24 April

So it's just 15 weeks till Team Conley - The Vally Warriors, take to the hills and participate with thousands of others in the Total Warrior 10km obstacle race. We're raising money for Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team, a voluntary team who do valuable, life saving work around these parts.

In preparation, we'll start Wednesday Warriors between 6.15-7.15pm as from 24 April. This training is open to anyone - you don't have to be part of the team.

We'll work outdoors whenever possible, getting down and dirty on the ground, in the woods, the park and along the canal, sprinting, crawling, stair runs, weighted runs...lots of cardio and core work!

Sessions are £5 each - booking only unless you are a team member. Text Kate 077 3243 3243
