Gym Floor News - March 2017
Sweat Towel Reminder
Please remember to carry your sweat towel with you at all times – this helps everyone enjoy a dry and clean gym. We have branded towels, Quillows, available for purchase in Membership Services.
From April, we will be getting a bit more strict with members that don't turn up to their booked group fitness classes. To help all enjoy the classes, please ensure you cancel your bookings if you can no longer attend with a 24 hour notice. Swiping your card on your way into the club will record your attendance. This will ensure your future ability to book classes.
On Monday, 3rd April, we will be holding a Nutrition Fundamentals session with our new Nutritionist, Belinda, from Zero Up Nutrition. In this informative talk, Belinda will cover the basics of the Next Gen nutrition philosophy. With scientific advice, you will learn how to balance your macronutrients and make optimal food choices for a healthy lifestyle. Book now at reception to secure a spot.
