Gym Challenges 2019

Our gym challenges are a fantastic way to test your abilities in a particular area. Try it before or after your workout and challenge your mates.


March Gym Challenge: 

1 mile challenge – how quickly can you cover a mile?

Test yourself in this speed endurance. You can either walk or run the 1 mile (1.6km) on our treadmills. Bear in mind, our treadmills record distance in km, so you’ll need to hit 1.6km. Your effort should be completed without stopping or pausing, however you can slow your pace.

What do members need to do?

Grab a treadmill and a member of staff. Ramp up the speed on the treadmill or ask us to, run until the distance reaches 1.6km.
