Nottingham Newsletter July 2018

3rd July 2018 | Nottingham

Manager’s Welcome

Looks like our hopes for a baking hot June were heard and there it was! Long may it continue so the suntrap of the outdoor pool can be enjoyed long into the summer…welcome to July!

Once again, we really do thank you for your patience during the past weeks of difficulty with our air handling system. Not easy conditions to work out in and we know how frustrated you must be. If you missed it the first time, here’s the background; the gym temperature is operated by an air handling system along with a chiller. The chiller has failed and needs totally replacing. This is a substantial piece of equipment, not just one part, and it has been ordered. We have a delivery and install date of week commencing 23rd July. In the meantime, fans and condensers have been advised and are in place and the gym team are on hand to fill up your water bottles and keep you hydrated.

Please do prepare yourself for your gym sessions though and bear in mind that during hot spells, even when not exercising, 2 litres of water per day is simply not enough. Whatever time of the day you’re coming in to train, make sure you’re hydrated, have plenty to drink during sessions and ensure you’re fuelled and have eaten something before your training. Exertion levels are always higher when it’s hotter so listen to your body and prepare it for what is about to come.

“1st Innings” Little Wickets for Pre-School Girls & Boys from 2 ½

Roko Nottingham on Friday Mornings

More than just learning to bat, bowl and field, Little Wickets sows the seeds for a lifelong passion for sport. ‘The Spirit of Cricket’ is at the heart of everything we do.

Kids have so much fun they don’t even realise the self-confidence & positive life skills they are learning. Fun warm-up games, skill based activities & soft ball cricket games focus on the ‘FUNdamentals of Movement’, to develop the kids hand/eye co-ordination, individual skills, physical fitness, a sense of team work & fair play. The coaches always encourage the kids to join in as independently as possible, but their grown-ups can join in as much or as little as they feel is necessary. Most importantly the emphasis is always on joining in and having fun!

Eye Lash Tinting
Tinting is done to achieve the look of wearing mascara without having to apply makeup daily. Women who regularly get their eyelashes tinted enjoy a number of benefits. If your lashes are naturally blond, getting them dyed will create a much more dramatic look for your eyes. The best part is the benefit is around the clock; unlike mascara that you must apply every morning, be careful not to smudge, and wash off at night, with dyed lashes you wake up looking like you already have makeup on. Lash tinting is a great option for women who have busy or active lifestyles. If you spend a lot of time swimming, playing sports or chasing your kids around, it's likely that you do not often wear mascara. Lash tinting will give you a more polished, coiffed look that is also no-maintenance.
Price £12.00

Eyebrow Tinting & Threading
