Autumn Update

Club Events
Approximately 140 members attended our recent summer drinks party and danced the night away with our club DJ Steve Lewis. Some members even made bootcamp the next morning though they were a bit slower than normal!
We shall be holding our Christmas drinks party with our club DJ on 30th November, with an award ceremony for the winners of our 8-week ‘Around the World’ Challenge – see fitness area below for more information. So please put the date in your diary and join us for another fun night.
If that is not enough, on Saturday 6th October from 7pm - 1am, Party Night Events are holding ‘The Soul Brother” party in the studio with Caribbean cuisine. Tickets for members and guests £5 in advance or £8 on the night. Please see club noticeboard or reception for more information.

New Circuit Studio Now Open
Set up in a circuit of approximately ten stations including resistance machines, cardio and free weight equipment - a complete workout can be achieved by completing two circuits in 30 minutes or can be simply used as an alternative to the present gym.

At certain times the studio is reserved for ladies only sessions, currently planned for Monday, Wednesday and Friday 1pm -4.45pm and weekends 4pm - 9pm.
The 30 minute circuit classes are proving very popular and more are planned so please keep an eye on the timetable.

New workout area

We have converted the TV lounge on the ground floor into another workout area with kettlebells, dumbbells, core bags, slam balls and stretch mats.

This has proved to be extremely popular with Members so far and is a great additional space for the gym team to conduct the 20 minute workout classes in.

New resistance & cardio equipment  

We have now replaced all of the older equipment on the ground floor gym with new equipment plus three extra cardio bikes including another recumbent and two specialised cycles for those wishing to simulate professional cycling.

Gym Team Update

October sees a return of the Around the World challenge which starts on October 1st and last 8 weeks. This is a great opportunity to kick-start your journey towards achieving your fitness goals. Last year over 200 hundred people took part leading to many fitness improvement success stories.

Members may form their own team of four, or individuals can be put into a team. To sign up, please see reception or any of the fitness staff.

During this 8 week period our fitness team are given extra time and resources to really support all participants; be it offering extra classes, one to one sessions or dietary consultation, this challenge is not one to be missed.

To Conclude the challenge we will be holding our annual  celebrations party on 30th November offering drinks, nibbles, music and live performances! 
We also have monthly gym challenges such as rower and jump challenges, so if you have not tried one yet, please speak to one of our fitness team.

For further information or if you have any suggestions for events or any other actives you would like to see in the Club please drop me a line at or speak to one of the gym staff.


Three of the tennis courts have now been painted blue and green providing a better playing experience and we have appointed a team of coaches from Academy De Gubernatis who will shortly start running adult and junior tennis classes.

There will be two classes for adults on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for the next five weeks for an introduction with the coaches and to learn how to play the game.

The team of coaches are available for private or shared lessons on request.

A junior program is also available on request - please contact Academy De Gubernatis for more information on 07918 553 130 or by email

Club Etiquette 

We pride ourselves in being different to most other clubs. We like to think we’re a home away from home with a relaxed atmosphere. We ask that in order to preserve this, the following is observed:
  • Members must bring in their Membership card and register at Reception.
  • Members should cancel any group exercise classes with at least 24 hours notice
  • Used towels are to be placed in the bins provided and locker doors closed after use
  • Lockers are for day use only. 
  • Last entry to the Club is 60 minutes before closing. Please check our website for times.


If you would like to bring a friend along with you, did you know that you can purchase packages with up to 50% savings on entry?
After your workout come and enjoy a freshly brewed coffee or protein shake.  Sandwiches and snacks also available. Or with an Indian Summer forecast, why not indulge in an ice cream or Lolly, available at reception. 
Please ask at reception about our great value multi-buys.  Available on most of our hot drink and bottled water purchases.

Car Park and Pedestrian Safety  

For Pedestrian safety we have installed a 5 mph speed bump in the drive way.
We have also put up additional signage to prevent cars from driving directly to the Studios and from exiting from the car park entrance rather than following the one way system.

In preparation for winter, the lower part of the overflow car park will have gravel put down, making it easier for members to park.
