The South West’s leading health club has completed a significant upgrade that means members and guests can take part in a series of state-of-the-art ‘virtual’ and ‘on-demand’ classes.
Leading Health Club Invests £70,000 On State-Of-The-Art Virtual Classes
Complementing a new range of live, instructor led classes, theclub at Cadbury House in Congresbury has invested £70,000 in its main and spin studios. The result means it can now offer over 230 classes a week to its members whereas before it could only provide around 80 classes per week.
The reason for the significant increase is because around two-thirds of what’s on offer are computer-generated classes. Members attend a class like normal but are taken through their workout by a virtual instructor who is projected onto the wall in front of the class.
Also, if a member wants to do a workout which is not on the timetable, they can literally turn up, set the class they want to undertake and press go themselves.
It means members have total flexibility on what they do and when they do it and fits in with their busy lifestyles.
Mehmet Kandemir, general manager at the multi award-winning venue said: “We’re constantly looking at ways in which we can improve our members’ experience so that they can maximise their time and get the most out of their membership.
“This new range of classes has opened up significantly the amount of time the new-look studios can be used as they are not reliant on an instructor being present.
“Conscious that not everyone will be comfortable with a virtual instructor, we have also increased the number of live classes, so again there is more variety and choice.
“Another significant addition is more children-based classes. This means parents can attend their own class while at the same time their son or daughter can be doing a class next door.”
The new classes and equipment comes from the Les Mills range and includes Les Mills RPM, CXWorx, Body Combat, Body Attack and Sufferfest cycling, as well as the new children’s class Born to Move.
Mehmet added: “Running more -off-peak virtual and on-demand classes gives our members more options. It allows people working shifts or parents who in the past might not have been able to make it before, can now enjoy a workout whenever it suits them.
“Around 10 years ago we wouldn’t have been able to do this but advances in technology means we can optimise our studio space and give our members more choice.
“Initial feedback has been really positive and the introduction of these new classes once again places theclub at the forefront of health and wellness.”
