Manager’s Corner

Club Maintenance

Throughout October we made a number of repairs and changes around the club.
Our Steam room, Sauna and Thermal suite had a full maintenance. They have been maintained to the highest industry standards with all temperatures checked and generators serviced.

Painting has also been taking place in numerous places around the club and we have got all our windows cleaned professionally inside and out so we can keep the bright airy feeling of our club continuously throughout the year. We are currently working on our gym floor ceiling tiles to improve the aesthetics of our gym floor area.

The introduction of our new stretching area has been a huge success and we are delighted with your feedback regarding our new space.

In addition we have invested in a new sound system.  This is the best in the industry and offers a fantastic selection of music genres at the perfect tempo throughout the day to ad to your member experience.

New Equipment

We are delighted to have introduced our new Plyo box for our gym floor. The soft Plyo Boxes are made from a high density foam and covered with hard wearing, non-skid vinyl, and the main benefit is that the foam will absorb some of the impact during a landing. For many athletes and everyday clients, one of the potential downloads with plyometrics and jump training is the volume of stress going through the foot, ankle, knees and hips – these soft Plyo boxes decrease that problem. So if you want to develop power, reactive strength or you just want to overload the cardio respiratory system with multiple jumps, then these are perfect for you. Plus if you do ‘miss’ your jump, falling onto a soft Plyo box is much kinder than a harder platform.  But as always we suggest you book in with a trainer if you are unsure about using any of our equipment.  We’re with you every step of the way and this is part of your membership.

We have also invested in new studio equipment including new Jordan dumbbells for our BODYPUMP classes and also new Pilates mats for our Pilates classes running each week.
