New Equipment
I have to say it's fantastic to see so many members using our fabulous new equipment. Reading all of the positive comment cards about the improvements we have made to the fitness arena is great for all the team here who work hard every day to ensure your member experience is an excellent one.

Our newly created performance zone enables you to take your fitness and ability to a new level. The performance zone helps you to get more variety and results from your workouts with specialist performance equipment including Technogym Skillmills, Wattbikes, Life Fitness Power Mills and Row GX Trainers and Power Plates.

Don’t forget this is phase 1 and soon we will be announcing plans for phase 2 so watch this space but for now keep enjoying the area and if you need any help our fitness team are always available.

Have a great October - and special congratulations and cheers if you are challenging yourself with Stoptober or Go Sober For October! Don't forget that exercise is fantastic for both of these challenges because it releases feel good endorphins and can stave off the craving for nicotine and/or alcohol.

Gary Jepson and your Roko York team
