May 2011 Newsletter

Dear Members,

Welcome to May & let us hope that your club continues to develop onwards & upwards under your generous patronage. Great to have seen so very many of you training in all areas of the club during April, traditionally one of the club’s quieter months but actually April 2011 was a boomer for feet through the door. Great to have seen so many of you committing yourselves so diligently to your own well-being programs here at HLFCH.

The Wednesday Zumba is flying high again thanks to Daryl’s great moves while Mel’s Yoga’s are ever more popular. Talking of which Mel thought it a great idea that the club ran a special beginners course for Yoga starters, a 3 week program of 3 yoga sessions per week specially designed & run for beginners.

Please do register your interest with reception where there is a sheet for you to state whether you would be interested in signing up to the $100 course that will consist of 9 Yoga classes. It is a great idea & we thought we would run it by the members & if you have guests that may also be interested in the same 9-session yoga course? It is available to them at $150 for each participant.

On new classes the Personal Trainers are looking into instructing a new 0600am Super Circuit class on Thursday mornings for 45 minutes. We hope to have this new class up & running in June 2011, until then Ben Hoffman continues to run a cross-training circuit which is well worth giving a shot at 0600am & his is a full 60 minutes of exercise.

The last Group Fitness news is Leanne was wondering how many of you would be interested in a white-collar boxing class? Daryl (your Zumba man) is also a Thump instructor & a Muay Thai Martial Artists & is prepared to run the boxing focused class if there is enough interest. The available slot is Friday evening, traditionally a going out night I know, but we’d be interested to know how many of you would be inclined to attend a boxing class of this ilk on a Friday evening?

Group fitness ladies, I’d like to thank you for helping us keep your workout environment safe by leaving your handbags & giant handbags in the lockers or at reception. A marked improvement & the majority of all members are all pulling together, thank you from all the GFI’s & PT’s to each & every one of you.

The work out zones in the gym, cardio theatre, spinning, stretch & group fitness areas are all looking much clearer & safer for everyone’s benefit – thank you again, good to see.

Two new personal trainers on board in Luke Valente (joining us from Goodlife / Fitness First) & Christina Davini who is moving across from Group Fitness into some personal training as well. Both are available to you via reception & well worth a chat to.

Kim is well & truly back in the saddle & now regularly takes the Wednesday morning class at 0915hrs & the Wednesday evening at 1800hrs, while Caitlyn is regularly instructing the 1800hrs Spin class on a Tuesday evenings. Support both ladies with gusto & turn up for the sessions & enjoy their diverse Free Spin programs.

In respect to your gymnasium & it’s ongoing up grades? I am pleased to announce a huge order of cardiovascular equipment from Life Fitness which will see 6 new Recumbent Cycles & 6 new Cross Trainers in situ by the end of May. To add to this exciting news we have a range of new strength equipment arriving at the end of the month too. Your workouts will never again be the same & each week that passes your club is modernizing as pledged when we started out on this new chapter of Healthy Life Fitness Centre.

Have a great month of May,
