Geyer slalom glory
Skiing hero Jai Geyer has regained his slalom title in Italy which he last held two years ago.
The Great Britain team member from Ipplepen has returned with an awesome result after his run of injuries during the 2010-2011 season which prevented him from attending the English Alpine Championships last winter.
After a successful first and second placing at a Citizen Series event in Germany, Jai went onto to gain a victory at the slopes of Bormio. The event attracted International skiers from Germany, Switzerland and New Zealand, and Geyer earned an amazing second place overall after the first run. The second run did not go quite as planned which cost Geyer the overall title and resulted in him placing fifth over all, however this was enough to earn him the position of best Brit with a time of 92.45 seconds.
Geyer now turns his attentions to the British Championships which take place in late March.
Newton Abbot Rugby club
at Steve's Gym 2012
Steve's Gym prides itself on providing excellent training and fitness facilities for local clubs and organisations, and so we are delighted to report that we are sponsoring Newton Abbot Rugby club for the coming year.
We will be offering the club a discounted membership package to encourage as many of its players to use our gym for their on and off season support training. We will also be happy to help with any advice they may need regarding nutrition and supplementation, as well as support and guidance during their weight and cardio programmes.
Steve's gym will benefit enormously from having the club training here, not only from the publicity they will generate, but also for aspiring sports men and women out there who are in two minds about coming to us for fear of not being given the support and knowledge they require. The clubs presence will reinforce our wining formula of top quality equipment and expert advice; the combination that delivers results!
