From last week’s newsletter…

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last 20 days, chances are you would have seen the changes taking place at Adapt to effectively double our space. I know we let a few guys down after we pulled the pin on a Southside location but I’ve gotta tell you that what’s coming is so, so much better so get excited. It’s going to be #epic (and you know what? I haven’t actually said that for ages…)

We’ve removed the suspended ceiling from our current space, knocked holes in walls, built treatment rooms, some stairs (kinda like having a split level lounge room #justSaying), a staff room and some new walls. We’ve added more than 15 meters of new pull-up bar space and as next door is higher than our current digs, expect to see some new ropes…

Fit-out Update

Treatment Rooms.

The treatment rooms are almost complete. Drew (our plasterer) has completed sheeting and from what I understand, is about to commence sanding (oh yes, there will be more dust for sure). You may have also noticed Tad ducking in and out of sessions, sorting out all the electrical details including the installation of some pretty fresh tuneable LEDs for each of the rooms. All we need to do now is paint and carpet them and they’ll be good to go.

We’re currently negotiation with a number of professional massage and chiropractic therapist to come and offer their services to the Adapt community and beyond. We’ve been pretty keen to offer a more holistic approach to health and fitness and this allows us to do just that. We can’t give you much more info at this stage but we’re expecting to announce a brand new partnership with at least one therapist by the end of June.

You should probably know that Craig has also recently completed his Cert 4 in Massage and I know for a fact that there’s more than a few people keen for a Relaxation massage that he is now (technically) able to offer.

Open Gym Access

In the biggest news since sliced bread, Adapt CrossFit is about to offer our members Open gym access. We’re aware that a lot of you have additional memberships with other gyms like anytime fitness (etc.) in order to work on extra stuff like strength and skill work outside of the 1 hour class we offer you each day.

Access to Open gym will be an additional $40 a month (per person) and while we haven’t completely locked in Open gym hours, it’ll probably something along the lines of:

  • 7am to 2pm Monday to Friday
  • 4pm to 8pm Monday to Thursday
  • 4pm to 7pm Friday
  • 6am to 11am Saturday

If you need to work on a weakness, your Oly lifts and/or some additional work given to you by one of our coaches then a monthly Open gym pass is going to be the key. As long as the gym is staffed you’ll be able to come in and train so bring on some stealth lunchtime sessions yeah?

There’s heaps more in the pipeline but the main theme is that we’re trying to create a place that’s going to be so rad, you’ll never want to leave. If you’re not yet part of our absolutely amazing community then you really don’t want to miss out on being part of what comes next. No. Really.
