More Energy Brunel warms the crowd up for Neon 5k Run 2017

The More Energy Brunel team warmed the crowds up for the University’s inaugural Neon 5k Run. The charity run raised money for the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals and featured students and staff running 2 laps around campus, covered in fluorescent paint and wearing glow sticks!

Have a look at the video below for a summary of the night and a brief appearance for More Energy Brunel’s PT Dimitrios Deliopoulos who ran the 5K in an impressive 16 minutes:

More Energy Brunel is pleased to announce that our member Pam Bagley has won the inaugural vote to be named Most Valued Member of the Quarter!

More Energy Brunel will be naming a different member every quarter – based on nominations put forward by the whole More Energy team. Pam received the most nominations from the gym staff this quarter and is therefore our Most Valued Member! Starting her fitness journey attending Women Only Workouts at ME Brunel, we felt Pam deserved this award due to her consistent attendance in classes and progression with fitness/health goals.

As a reward for her hard work, Pam now gets a free personal training session with a trainer of her choice. Who will it be next quarter? You’ll just have to wait and see!

Congratulations to Pam from the More Energy team!
