ActivZone’s Newsletter August’18

Welcome to Augusts edition of your ActivZone newsletter. Its going to be a scorcher! We’ve got some hot new updates for you this month….



Launching TODAY (Monday 30th July’18) is our new Class Timetable! It’s on FIRE!!!

Packed full of even more & a few brand-new classes each week! Check out the new line up on your mobile (after you’ve finished reading this newsletter of course) at ‘activzone.clubm.mobi’ or www.activzone.co.uk !!



Because our GOLD weekend Personal Training Sessions are hot, Hot, HOT, we’ve had to make it more accessible for everyone to get their slots!

So, weekend personal training sessions are now allocated to 3 people per half hour & the 30 minute sessions will be session planned. You can book into the session of your choice at the allocated time & be joined by 2 other GOLD members who share the same training interests as you!

The sessions will be allocated into the following groups: CORE, UPPER BODY, LOWER BODY, HIIT, FULL-BODY.

Simply ask the team what times are allocated to each session to book yours.



With the new class timetable launching & containing a few sizzling new classes, we’re super excited to show the world of social media what we’ve got to offer!

As a courtesy notice to all our fabulous members who will be taking part, we will be LIVE STREAMING our classes throughout August!

If you do not wish to be caught in the filming, please let the team know & we will ensure not to catch you during the live stream.



At ActivZone, we like to keep things running as smoothly as possible to ensure your time with us is as stress free & enjoyable as you would expect from the friendliest gym in Guildford!

To enable this to stay consistent, we’ve had a bit of a staff shift change up.

Your Admin & Management Team (Ejay & Alicia) will now be available Monday-Friday 9am-7pm to assist you with all your Membership queries. (ie: freezing, cancelling, payment queries, upgrades, concerns & feedback etc)

Please note that our Fitness instructors/Personal training staff (Ollie, James & George) are unable to assist with any membership queries over the weekend/outside of these hours but are of course able to assist in any gym related help & weekend PT/class bookings.


If you require assistance with any membership queries outside of the above-mentioned hours, please do not hesitate to Email Ejay@activzone.co.uk or Alicia@activzone.co.uk who will respond as soon as possible.



Wonderful, now I have your attention… FREE Personal Training for every video review!

Yep, it’s that simple! Ask the team to film your review on the best, most friendly, fun & amazing ActivZone Gym & in return you’ll receive a FREE 30min Personal Training session!

We will use each & every review on our social media platforms & website. After all, there is no better way of us showing the people of Guildford (& surrounding areas) how fabulous we are, than by YOU telling them!

ActivZone’s Newsletter JULY’18

 Welcome to July’s issue of your ActivZone Newsletter!

This month we’re full of newness!

Shiny new News for all! How exciting!


It brings us great pleasure & pride to welcome & introduce to you all our shiny new member of the team & newly qualified Personal Trainer GEORGE! **Round of applause please**

Some of you will have been lucky enough to have already met this lovely young man over the last year or so as George was our Monday evening Gym Angel whilst he was gaining his Personal Training Qualifications.

Now all trained up & ready to train YOU, George will be taking the reins off James for our Sunday Morning Personal Training Sessions for our GOLD Members!

GOLD PT with George will be available from the Sunday 8th July 8am-1pm! You are Welcome 😉

(You can also speak to George about booking in your own private sessions as George will be looking to build his new client base within ActivZone & will be happy to discuss his future PT plans with you!)


This brings us on to our next exciting piece of weekend Personal Training News

As George will be hosting Sundays, James & Ollie will BOTH be training our GOLD Members on a Saturday… Which means MORE TRAINING HOURS AVAILABLE! **Insert cheers & woops here**

Our new GOLD Personal Training Hours will be as follows (as of Saturday 7th July’18):

SATURDAYS 10am-12:30 with Ollie

SATURDAYS 1pm-5pm with James

SUNDAYS 8am-1pm George


Get yourselves into a spinning frenzy!! We’ve got a delivery of 12 BRAND NEW SPIN BIKES landing in the ActivZone near you (by near you, we obviously mean the best and one-&-only ActivZone Guildford), ETA Thursday 5th July!

More bikes mean more availability for your classes… (I may even hint that there could be a new class timetable with the possibility of more classes coming your way too in the not so distant future!) So even more chance to get yourselves in a spin over these new bikes! Just be careful not to make yourselves dizzy! ;-P


Sadly, the competition entries date has now passed. Which means the race is ON for all participants to grow your sunflowers to the best of your ability!

We will be contacting all who are taking part to let you know your final measurement date, but competition ends at the end of September when we will have gathered all proof pictures with final measurements!! Now, go use this fantastic weather to your advantage & GET YOUR GROW ON!!

O.M.G!! All this newness mixed with the beautiful weather we’ve been having has made us super excited for JULY!

Keep your eyes peeled for all that’s set to come, although I’m sure we won’t let you miss a thing!

See y’all soon!

ActivZone Newsletter June 2018

Surprise!! I know we said we wouldn’t be able to, but we’ve managed to sneak back into your inboxes one last time! Aren’t you lucky!

Some changes are happening within your Gym this month & a few exciting competitions coming up for you all to take part in…


Class Timetable:

Your class timetable is having a minor change up…

As of TUESDAY 29th May, your 7am SPIN CLASS with Alicia will be CANCELLED.

Taking its place will be James & a HIIT Class from 7am-7:30am.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but spinners do not fear, Ollie’s 7am SPIN Thursdays & Tony’s 8am SPIN Saturdays are running as usual!

We’d also like to bring your attention that due to staff holiday there may be a few small changes to your Class Timetable end of June/beginning of July, please check your Timetable app activzone.clubm.mobi for updates.


Bank Holiday Reminder:

We’re OPEN BANK HOLIDAYS! Woop woop!!

A gentle reminder that we’re open reduced hours & that no Programmes or Classes are available to book.


We look forward to seeing you in club, no excuses! (Unless the weather’s nice & you’re off for a nice lunch, then we’ll let you off!)


You vs Sunflower Competition:

June is the last month to purchase your Sunflower seeds from reception to be in with a chance of winning 1 YEAR FREE MEMBERSHIP! (& to set the 12-week change challenge for yourself!)

Seed packs are just £3 for 3 seeds, which is 3x the chance of winning!

Imagine winning £330 worth of Membership for simply growing a flower with the change in your pocket!

What have you got to lose?!


World Cup Sweepstake:

It’s back! The ActivZone world cup sweepstake!

32 Teams, £2 a team…. That’s a winning pot of up to £64*!! (*number of participants depending)

Pick your team at random at reception & let the fun begin!


GDPR Permission Email Response:

I’m sure you’ve all had 100’s of Emails from various companies asking you to ‘opt-in’ to stay subscribed.

& we know we had already spoken to a number of you who kindly gave us verbal consent to stay in contact.

Sadly, we have had to go down the Email route too, so you may have noticed one in your Email inboxes from us.

We are aware that once you have clicked on the link to ‘opt-in’ that it states it is for Marketing, unfortunately this is very misleading as this is something ActivZone prides itself on not doing… no marketing, no ‘junk email’.

Please do ‘opt-in’ for ‘marketing’ if you would like us to stay in contact.

We cannot stress enough that we will not send Marketing/junk emails/texts, but this option simply gives us permission to stay in contact with you. It’s just worded incorrectly.

Obviously, if you do not wish for us to keep in contact then please feel free to opt out (we can’t lie though, we will miss you!), but in order for us to help where needed in regards to any membership problems that may occur, we need your permission to be able to do so.

If you would like us to send the permissions Email again, please ask Alicia or Ejay who will be happy to get that over to you.


Thank-you for taking the time to read your Monthly Newsletter!

Any questions or feedback as always are greatly received.


See you all soon,

Ejay & The AZ Team

New Year, New Classes!

We’re always looking to improve your AZ Class Timetable as & when it needs it. & as most of you know, most of our classes are EXTREMELY popular! Some…. Not so much ☹

So, we’ve had a little change up & given your timetable a slightly new look…

As always, your feedback is important to us, so why not give your new classes a go & let us know what you think!

*Bodireel Training App – Keeping your workout on your phone & updating your progress at the tap of an app has never been easier!

Ask the team how you can UPGRADE on your next visit & watch your goals become easier to reach than ever before!


Equipment Share & Gym Etiquette

With our ever growing Member numbers & unfortunately not so expanding gym floor, We‘d like to kindly ask all you lovely people that at busier times (& even not so busy hours) you share equipment if required during your workouts.

We understand that some of you are only able to get in for your workouts for 30 mins a day & so waiting for someone else to finish 4+ sets with 3-4min rests is not always possible.

Therefore, if you find a new or regular user asking ‘how many sets do you have left?’, Please just offer them to ‘jump in’ during rest periods. This will help to accommodate us all & improve your workout experience! We all know there’s nothing worse than having someone hovering around you waiting/rushing you to finish your last few sets/reps!

On that note, who likes a messy gym? Who likes having to hunt to find your usual piece of workout equipment because its not in the correct place? Enjoy stepping over sweaty mats left on the floor? Sitting on a seat with the last users bottom print still steaming? NO?! We didn’t think so either!

Please clean & put away ALL equipment after use to avoid all of the above being found in your club ????  Thank-you.

We’re all so excited to see you all back in your club again this year & welcome all our new ActivZone Members to our ever-growing AZ Family!

See you all soon!

14th of November – World Diabetes Day!

14th of November is World Diabetes Day which is internationally recognised. Over 3 million people in the UK live with Diabetes but do you know what the disease is and what can you do to prevent the onset of diabetes?

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a long-term condition in which the blood sugar level in the body is higher than normal.

There are two main types of diabetes.

  • Type 1 diabetesor insulin-dependent diabetes. It is usually (although not exclusively) seen in young people.
  • Type 2 diabetesor non-insulin-dependent diabetes. It tends to affect adults over 40 and overweight people, although it is now becoming commoner amongst younger people. Type 2 diabetes occurs more frequently in people of South Asian and African-Caribbean descent. There are also other types of diabetes.

How common is diabetes?

Currently over 3 million people in the UK have with diabetes, the majority of which is type 2. It is estimated that more than half a million people more in the UK have type 2 diabetes, but are unaware of it.The last 30 years has seen a threefold increase in the number of cases of childhood diabetes. This is especially worrying in respect of the rising numbers of children and teenagers with Type 2 diabetes, which was once only seen in older people. This trend is likely to reflect the rising obesity levels in young people over the same time period. There has also been an increase in the number of children with Type 1 diabetes, the cause of which is unclear.

What are the common symptoms of diabetes?

  • increased thirst
  • frequent urination
  • tiredness
  • weight loss, although appetite often increases (especially in Type 1 diabetes)
  • itchiness, especially around the genitals or genital thrush
  • recurrent infections on the skin, e.g. boils or urinary infection.

How can you help prevent diabetes?

  • Live an active lifestyle
  • Eat healthily
  • Stop smoking
