November 2021 Newsletter

November... Winter is finally creeping in, the early mornings are dark and the evenings gloomy, but that will not stop us from working towards our fitness goals, as our paradise is warm and welcoming!

EXCITING NEWS!

With the colder weather forcing our classes indoors (minus the occasional BOOTCAMP or HITT class being run outside) it has given us the opportunity to receive a new class studio from the College!! This new space also allows us to start adding a more a wider range of classes to the timetable and... wait for it.... bring back the much loved Yoga classes! Woohoo! We'll keep you updated as we get more info, so watch this space! CHANGES... Over the last few weeks/months we have been gathering data, speaking with YOU our fabulous members & paying close attention to how many of your lovely faces are coming through our doors every day, we have made a BIG decision... WE'VE CLOSED THE BOOKING SYSTEM FOR GYM SESSIONS! Yippee! Meaning, as of the 1st November'21, you no longer have to book your workouts or stay for a limited time! Take as long as you want, stay all day if you wish ;) However, the booking system remains firmly in place for all classes! On this note: Please be respectful of your class instructor & fellow class attendees by CANCELLING your class booking the day beforehand if you can not attend, this allows our members on the waiting list to take your slot. REMEMBER REMEMBER.. NOT JUST 5TH NOVEMBER A few important reminders following on from the closure of the booking system.. ActivZone is CLOSED every FRIDAY 12PM-1;15PM for the Oakleaf Charity. No members are permitted to use ActivZone at this time. ActivZone is also CLOSED every SATURDAY 11AM-12;15PM for our LADIES ONLY LIFTING CLUB**. Again, no members are permitted to use the club during this hour unless you are attending the class. **What's the Ladies Lifting Club I hear you say?... Let me tell you :) We created the LLC for ALL women of ALL ages & training abilities who want to feel more comfortable & confident when lifting weights and working out. The session is hosted by the lovely Emily Dodd - Personal Trainer, UK Powerlifting & Strength Champion! All our female members can book their slot via the booking app activzone.clubm.mobi We hope to see more of you lovely ladies at the next session! HYGIENE..... Final reminder, our cleaning & putting away of all equipment after every use still remains! Please ensure you are all doing your bit to keep yourselves, fellow members & staff safe & keeping ActivZone open for business :) WHAT ARE YOU SUGGESTING... Do you have something to say? Something you'd like to see in the gym? Perhaps a Class suggestion or MAYBE there is something you feel we could be doing better? Whatever it is, we want to hear it. So we're putting a suggestion box at reception. All comments will be kept anonymous :) HELLO, HI, NICE TO MEET YOU We're sure you will have all seen & spoken to our 2 new members of the team but we'd like to take a moment to formally introduce them to you... Please welcome Dawn & Cameron to the AZ Team! Dawn is a fully qualified Personal Trainer, Level 4 Sports Therapist & experienced coach. Having worked at clubs such as Foxhills, she still spends much of her time outside of ActivZone coaching youth sports groups & running her own Sports Massage business. Cameron has joined us as an apprentice Personal Trainer. We will be assisting & mentoring Cam over the course of the year to become a great Personal Trainer & Group Training expert. You will see Cam becoming more involved within gym activities as he gains his qualifications over the coming months. We look forward to you all encouraging & supporting him alongside us throughout his new career journey. IF YOU NOTICE THIS NOTICE YOU WILL NOTICE.. Our notice board will be updated with exciting events across November & December, so keep your eyes peeled for these! Fast forward to CHRISTMAS, well, December, & we will be organizing a little Christmas get together during the 1st week of December for all of you, our members, to have a little social & get that fitness/life balance off to a great start for the festivities & not forgetting to celebrate ActivZone's 1st year anniversary under the new management. What an incredible year it has been! -- Many thanks Kindest regards Ejay Wright | Gym Manager ActivZone Gym, Guildford College, Stoke Road, Guildford, GU1 1EZ
