We are absolutely gutted to confirm that Energy Gym & CrossFit Skirmish have closed with immediate effect.

Firstly thank you for your support over the last weeks.  We have been overwhelmed by your understanding, kindness and positivity and offers of help.   We are humbled by your thoughtfulness.

We assume that the closure will be temporary but will of course keep you updated on progress as events unfold.  So let’s update you on the important stuff:

1.  What’s happening with your Memberships  

  • Energy Gym Annual Membership –  if you have 12 month membership your direct debit will be put on hold.   There’s no need for you to cancel your direct debit, we’ll do everything for you to keep your membership frozen with no money at all being taken. When we receive confirmation from the Government that it is safe for you to attend we will confirm this to you by email and announce opening on Facebook & Instagram.  Your memberships will be re-activated with the end date adjusted to reflect the period that the gym was closed.
  • Energy Gym Rolling Membership –  if you have a rolling membership your direct debit will be put on hold.  There’s no need for you to cancel your direct debit, we’ll do everything for you to keep your membership frozen with no money at all being taken.

  • CrossFit Skirmish WOD packs – as above, your WOD packs are on hold.   If you had any classes booked for the next week, your WOD pack has been credited.   As above, when we go live the end date of your pack will be extended.

2.  Classes are now on Instagram 

We have cancelled all physical classes in the gym. Instead we will be working hard to provide you with online fitness options as follows:

  • A WOD (workout of the day) from Home published on our CrossFit Skirmish Facebook and Instagram pages daily.
  • A new daily live broadcast WOD on Instagram.  This will typically happen at 9am but just visit our Instagram page to check.

Live broadcasts will be hosted by our fantastic crossfit coaches and will be designed around body weight exercises and/or use stuff you may have in the home.   The times may vary so ‘like’ our Instagram and facebook pages to ensure you are kept up to date.

Please also share your own home videos of workouts – it will be good to see you in photos or via video.  Feel free to involve the kids and of course your dogs!

We would like to thank our wonderful gym staff, personal trainers and coaches.  They have worked tirelessly over the last few months to keep the gym and CrossFit box disinfected and safe.  They have also continued to stay motivated and keep you supported through this challenging time.   

Clearly the scale of the the Coronavirus pandemic is greater than any of us could have imagined.  We can only hope that the actions we are taking today and in the months to come will ensure that we all stay healthy and that our loved ones remain so too.

Finally, thank you to those of you who are key workers in the front line.  Whether you are are a doctor, nurse, police officer, army officer, delivery driver, shelf stacker, carer, logistics specialist or NHS support worker we are very grateful to you for the preparations you are making and the risks you are taking for us all.   

You are an incredible bunch of folks – stay home, stay safe and join us online to keep your fitness, resilience and positivity up.

Gavin, Siobhan, Sasha, Callum, Poppy & Lenka.
