September 2021 Newsletter

September at last, spring is upon us & change is imminent as we remain on track for transitioning into our brand-new premises & into a new family as part of Goodlife Health Clubs. We are now tracking for a late November 2021 opening according to their parent company The Fitness & Lifestyle Group. A few bumps in the road as we go but that is to be expected due to the ramifications of Covid-19, especially on the eastern seaboard where the headquarters of Goodlife & TFLG are.

Nonetheless, onwards & upwards as we have received word from Goodlife WA State Manager Ian Harvey that their newly appointed Hillarys club manager Steve Kelty will finally be arriving from Queensland into Perth in early September & post his quarantine Steve will be here in-situ. Steve will be available from, the Goodlife pre-opening sales booth inside the main shopping mall opposite Rebel sports daily. He will also be in the club at various times on an ad-hoc basis.

We will be holding a trio of information, question & answer sessions in mid-September. These open forums for members will be put on to enable you to have all your questions answered in mid-September.

The dates are as advertised on Thursday 16th September 1800hrs, Friday 17th September 1000am & Saturday 18th September 1130am.

The meetings will be hosted by myself & various senior management from Goodlife such as the WA state management team, the new Hillarys club manager as well as your new Goodlife group fitness manager.

Please diarize the three dates & hopefully one will suit your personal schedule. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised by the planned & succinct transition for you all, across into the new & much grander Goodlife health club.

I hope that the facilities & services that some of you will be feeling rather disappointed about missing out on, like the originally planned cycle zone, will be appeased by the alternative solutions offered by Goodlife.

The various solutions Goodlife are putting forward are special membership tariffs to compensate the cycle crew members along with the ability to cycle at any other Goodlife club & a host of other bespoke options which the Goodlife team will explain as & when each person requests.

Let me please clarify that the intention of the new Goodlife team is to continue on with the same level of group fitness classes & the same style & streams of classes wherever possible. If anything, Megan & her team will be adding extra value to your group fitness experience here in Hillarys & across their other clubs.

I believe the vast majority of you will be thrilled by the changes & improvements Goodlife bring to the table. Of course, like with all change there is bound to be the odd class switch, change of time or stream or exchange or outright removal of a particular slot, but whatever is put forward by Goodlife will be equal to or better than what we presently have. Please trust the process as the likes of Megan McKean, & Donna France are hugely experienced GFI’s & GFM’s.

While on the group fitness schedules, please remember that the new Thursday evening 6pm active class is now a pulsating & energetic Les Mills 30/30 class consisting of “Athletic Body Step / Body Pump Express” delivered by Charles Song.

Monday morning 0915am cycle with Sharon Clews is now an RPM Extreme which is 55 minutes of pure precision-cadence cycling on the bike. The final change for this month is Sunday morning Body Balance with Angie Brooks & Fiona Peacock; this class has been brought forward by one hour to 0930am – 1030am by popular member demand.

Try out Hala’s unique Freestyle Club Fiesta Step on Saturday mornings 0830am before slipping into her better known Club Fiesta 0930am – 1030am.

It is WA’s delayed celebration of the Queen’s birthday on Monday 27th September 2021 & will see the club staffed usual public holiday hours of 0800am – 1200 midday & 3 great group fitness classes of 0830am RPM Extreme, 0930am Body pump & 1030am Yoga.

Have a great & warmer September than the last few months & remember to keep up to date with all the transitional information, Healthy Life / Goodlife news & updates. We use facebook, Instagram & the club website for all of our newsworthy club updates.

Thank you,
