Today is a special day... today we celebrate the 1st BIRTHDAY for SMASH!
One year ago we excitedly launched our first ever class... and we haven't looked back since! So much thought, planning and sweat has gone in to making this first year of SMASH the success it has been - and we couldn't be prouder! We have battled nerves, trusted our gut, taken ourselves way outside of our comfort zone, forced smiles on days it felt a little harder than normal but, mostly, we have felt tremendous pride. Pride in all of you who have attended our classes, especially those of you who keep coming back , and pride in ourselves for giving the little idea inside of us all the energy, passion and comfort it needed to grow in to what it is today. SMASH is now one of the most popular and best attended classes at Fitness First Angel! If anyone had told us this when we started a year ago we probably wouldn't have believed them, even though we knew that what we were doing was something unique and powerful with the chance to help people enjoy the gym and give their mental wellbeing equal focus to their physical health. Now we believe that anything is possible and, with hard work from all of us, we are excited to see where SMASH goes from here!
Year 2 starts now and to celebrate we have some exciting things happening next week that we hope as many of you as possible are able to take part in -
Monday's 1pm SMASH class will be AGILITY! This is our newest class that was launched in Discovery last week! (We know we don't normally tell you what to expect in SMASH but you can always break a rule or two on your birthday ).
SMASH HIIT on Monday at 5:45pm will be centred around a workout you could do on your own (or with someone else!) whilst on holiday this summer! This is your way of being able to take a SMASH workout with you, wherever you are!
SMASH Run on Tuesday will be replaced with our first ever OUTDOOR class! We will not be doing a 5k run (normal SMASH Run will return the week after) but you can expect a great SMASH class outdoors instead - put your sunscreen on! To book for this class please book SMASH Run on the app, 12:15pm Tuesday.
An extra class will be added on Wednesday at 12:15pm! We are keeping the class secret, you'll just have to be there to find out! To book please email us back or register your interest via Instagram (this class will not be on the core app and must be booked with us directly).

We will reply with your lucky number and a prize draw will take place on Wednesday!
SMASH is so important to us and we wouldn't be where we are now, celebrating our first birthday, if it wasn't for you. We are so grateful to each and every one of you for all your support and we hope that you stay on this journey with us as we continue to train our bodies and mind, make mental health and wellbeing something that we can openly discuss and build a community of diverse, strong and happy people
Birthdays are normally a good time to reflect on the past year so take a moment now to focus on you. Recognise all the hard work and commitment you have put in to looking after your own health, your own body and mind. Congratulate yourself for all the steps taken this year that have made you that little bit stronger. Reconnect. Smile. Be proud.
Take a deep breath in...
Thank you for being you and we hope to see as many of you as possible to celebrate with us next week
Lots of love, gratitude and thanks...
Sam and Ash
