DW Fitness First December Challenge

DW Fitness First Hammersmith often have a challenge or two in club. In November, it was a rowing challenge working with British Rowing and the winner receiving free entry to the National Indoor Rowing Championships.

In December, DW Fitness First are working with British Triathlon and will be having a swimming, cycling and running challenge in club. The first of these will be a swim challenge (details below). These “partnership” challenges are available for non-members too. To book in for a free trial, simply write to Michael and the membership team direct via hammersmithsales@fitnessfirst.co.uk or download a free pass here. They will also be running a 12  days of Christmas Challenge from Monday 11th to Friday 22nd December, with a different activity each day. More information can be found soon on their social media pages and the winner of each challenge will receive a prize!

In addition to swimming, numerous classes, sauna, steam and fully fitted gym, there are an array of fully qualified professional trainers based at the club. December’s focus is with Ben who offers a complimentary session to anyone interested in looking into personal training. This can be booked by clicking here.
