Although, officially, it is our second Christmas at Colchester Fitness Centre, this is the first time we’ve been able to celebrate it all together. So we went all out.

As you might expect, the night began with welcome drinks at our festive venue, followed by food and drinks, and then a few more drinks… quite a few.

Before the booze set in, Mark and Sam hosted the “Wolfies” – the first edition of what will be our annual awards ceremony – which highlights certain achievements through our gym’s community. As well as highest class attendance, most improved weightlifter, and bootcamp grafters, we called out the messiest, clumsiest, and most confused members (and coaches!), and made sure everyone knew how proud we are of their progress.

When the awards were over, and the next round of drinks were ordered, we turned up the music… and the karaoke machine. For most of those in attendance, it gets a little hazy after that!

Big thanks to everyone who came to celebrate with us, and to Attik for completely exceeding our expectations for a party venue. Can’t wait to see the official snaps.
