From all the staff here at the Club we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. We hope that you all have a great festive season.
Opening hours over this period are available on the home page of our website.
Gym Refurbishment Update
This has kept to schedule and will be finished on Christmas Eve and we will open on Tuesday 27th December as planned.
The work on the Qube is now complete and will also open on the 27th December. All of the cardio vascular equipment is Precor and will be very familiar to you in terms of look and feel. The consoles are the new P80ii which we trialled on Precor’s behalf earlier during the year so if you have used them then no problem, if not and you need some assistance with the functionality then please ask one of the team. All the resistance equipment is again Precor and will have the same functionality as the previous kit, so there should be no concerns.
The old Keiser air compression equipment has been replaced with a new range of circuit equipment called Milon. This is a leading brand in Europe and is slowly being introduced into the UK and USA markets. This does put us in a relatively unique position as a Club. The Keiser equipment was not well used by gym users except for some circuit classes and by the College. The Keiser equipment has been replaced with an amazing new range of Milon circuit training equipment which is able to deliver some of the worlds’ most advance training solutions and is incredibly popular across Europe with over 2 million people using Milon every week.
With the Milon equipment you will be able to benefit from a superb 35 minute total body work out that is simple, safe and highly effective. Even better news is that you will never need to remember your seat or lever positions, as these are remembered by the machine every time you use the circuit. With the Milon Circle, we are able to provide you with personalised training support that will help you progress your strength and cardiovascular performance.
We want, our loyal members to benefit from using Milon first, so we have created 300 VIP memberships that will allow you to fully test our Milon Circle for 90 days for just a £90 deposit and you will never be charged anymore in the future.
New members to the Club that wish to use the Milon Circle will pay a premium membership price. As existing members you can use the Milon Circle with our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and if it is something that you want to continue with, then the £90 will be retained as a one off price for life. Should it not be what you are looking for from your training with us here at Wellington Health & Fitness, then simply let us know and we will refund your deposit. Before you commit our instructors will be happy for you to try some of the equipment.
For those members that attend the programmed circuit classes only, we will provide you with your own card and no fee will apply. If however you would like to make the Circle part of your training regime then the one off fee is applicable.
The Milon Circle here at Wellington is an engaging, enjoyable and individual training solution and is the only one in Berkshire, so email us in the New Year to find out more. We will go live with the Circle on Monday 9th January.
There will be some additional work to be carried out next month. Our seven top of the range Cross Trainers have been held up in the States and are currently being shipped across. We expect them to arrive and be installed by mid-January. Wellington will be the first Club in the UK to have these latest Cross Trainers installed. The Cross Trainers currently in situ are brand new but the same as the previous model. Once we have a date we will advise members. There will be some disruption to normal service lasting for a maximum of two half days.
The new air conditioning units have been set at 19 degrees which is the recommended temperature for a fitness facility. However, if this is a degree or two on the wrong side of comfortable we will adjust accordingly. There is also a much more efficient air handing system in place which will greatly enhance the freshness in the room.
For the first week in January there will no pre-set music channels available on the equipment. This is because we have a technical issue with one of the Sky boxes and we cannot get an engineer out until the 6th January to resolve the matter.
Additional mirrors will be installed on 3rd January but this will not impact on the operation. There will also be some minor decoration work to be completed.
All other projects as mentioned in the November newsletter are still scheduled to be rolled out over the course of 2017. Once dates have been arranged then sufficient notice will be provided. For these future occasions we will be able to provide notice much further in advance than we were able to for the gym project.
