On Saturday we held our final event of our Summer 6 Week Challenge: The 6X Fun Run.
This is the second time we have finished a challenge with our Fun Run and it has proven to be an incredible way to have members achieve things they didn't think were possible. The even is held at Centennial Park with the option of completing 7km (2 laps), 14km (4 laps) or 21km (6 laps). It was great to see so many people either beat their time from their last Fun Run or to run a further distance.
Congratulations to all members who participated in this event. You are all incredible!
On Saturday we had a bunch of 6X Members participate in the 2020 True Grit. True Grit is a military style obstacle course that is 10km and includes over 30 obstacles. These guys ran together the whole time and worked as a team to push each other through all of the obstacles. You can tell by those smiles that they had a great time! Congratulations to you all on an outstanding effort!

On Saturday 27th of February, we ran our first ever 6X Biathlon at Clovelly Beach. The event for one hour and the challenge was to complete your chosen route as many times as possible. There were three options to chose from that either involved a longer swim, a longer run or it might of been just a matter of jumping in to the pool to complete a few laps.
This event pushed a lot of people out of their comfort zone but it was awesome to see how accomplished everyone felt once the event was completed. This is an event we hope to keep on the schedule for many challenges to come!
A FEW SNAPS FROM THE DAY:
WOW! What a night that was.
On Saturday Night we were able to host our Annual 6X Christmas Party and Awards Night at South Maroubra Surf Club. It was a great night of drinking, dancing and many many laughs. We are so grateful for all of our members support over the year. We also need to give a huge shoutout to those that were able to support us over such a tough period earlier in the year. We could not have got through it without you! We cannot wait to see what 2021 will bring for everyone!
The health of our 6X community and staff is our absolute top priority and as such, we want to update you on some new measures to ensure our gym is a safe environment.
We will continue to monitor the situation daily and will be amending our response as appropriate.
We believe it’s even more important to continue exercising to keep your physical and mental health in check at this time and here are the further steps we have implemented:
We have doubled our cleaning roster – tasks include wiping, scrubbing, cleaning and disinfecting every square inch of our gym and all of our dumbbells, kettlebells, TRX’s, machine’s, bike’s etc along with showers, sinks, surfaces, doors and most importantly class floors throughout the day at multiple times – using a commercial grade cleaning disinfectant product.
We will remove our circuit-style classes from our timetable as of this week. I understand this will be of inconvenience to our members who have already planned their week, however as mentioned earlier, your health is our top priority and we are making this call in your best interest.
This will ensure you have your own station, less opportunity for physical contact.
In our Max8 classes, each member will be asked to use disinfectant on their own equipment pre and post class.
We have reduced our kickstart numbers to 15 to allow more space in the studio.
To further help compensate for the heightened risks, we will be going outdoors when possible! We will notify you of this decision the day prior where possible.
Please ensure you carry and use a towel when on the gym floor. This is mandatory. No towel, no train. We also suggest a full-size towel. Your towel is to prevent your sweat reaching the equipment. It is not intended to wipe your sweat from the equipment. If you use our equipment please wipe it down thoroughly before and after use with the wipes and disinfectant provided on the gym floor.
Please use the hand sanitisers placed around 6X each time you enter and leave. Wash your hands for 20 seconds at a time before and after class as a precaution.
LISTEN TO YOUR BODY – if you are unwell, please stay home and follow the most up to date government guidelines. Our staff will also ask anyone to leave the gym if they are visibly unwell. Our staff will of course be permitted any time off they require if they are also unwell.
We have created procedures and trained all staff on action plans so we can be ready to service and assist all clients at this time. This is a changing situation and we’re closely following updates on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and advice suggested by the Federal Government and Health authorities included in the links below:
We’ll continue to update you on our measures but let’s stay together, train together and get through this challenging time together.
We are working tirelessly in the background, staying abreast of the situation; how we can best handle it and making plans to keep you training through this tough time.
If you need anything at all, please reach out to us.
