New Boxing Zone & More!

Posted on | Author: Mark Bone | Category: Phoenix News

Due to Covid-19, we have made massive improvements to Phoenix Gym and have lot’s of updates for you below. The first being that because of the continued restrictions to taking classes, we have made the decision to stop providing classes for the time being and instead convert our class studio into a “Boxing Zone” for all members to be able to use, whenever you want to.

New Boxing Zone

This will include the punch bags and box-master from the functional area along with an assortment of different types of punch bags from the previous boxing classes.

As well as this range of boxing toys, there are mirrors and light dumbbells available for shadow boxing, mats for abdominal/core work plus funky lighting, new decor and the round timer to keep you focused. 

The bags will be spaced out appropriately so you can train with friends no problem.  

Unrestricted Access 

One benefit of not currently providing classes is that you will be able to just turn up and use the Boxing Zone anytime you like, without worrying about a class being on, preventing you from using the equipment. Bonus! 

The other benefit is that by moving the boxing equipment from the Functional Zone, we can then add a Rowing Machine, Spin Bike and other functional fitness toys to this area also. This will also create more space to workout in this Functional Zone. 

Member Rewards 

For those members that chose to carry on paying their memberships through the lockdown, don’t forget to use your credits so that we can say thank you for doing so. 

The credits allocated to your account are relative to the amount that you paid during the lockdown and can be used towards 1/ personal training sessions 2/ guest passes and 3/ FIT3D Body Scans. 

These credits can be used until the 25th of July 2021 and just see reception to start claiming your rewards. 

New Personal Training Studio

The other studio is currently being refurbished into a fully equipped Private Personal Training Studio, which will still include the boxing ring for 1-2-1 personal training sessions.

This allows you to work with our personal trainers in a high-quality private space, away from the busier gym floor. 

Both studios are currently being refurbished including central heating, extraction, blinds and decor to get them ready for you. 

We hope to have the “Boxing Zone” ready for members by mid-November or sooner! 

WIFI & Checking In

We are now in the process or upgrading our WIFI network to make it more secure and much faster for members as a result. 

If you struggle scanning out of the club then you can simply “tap the bar code” area with your finger, which then automatically refreshes the code for you. 

This is because you have not shut your app down properly after scanning in, hence why it needs refreshing as you leave. 

The upgraded WIFI will enable a super fast connection when entering the club to scan in also. 

Clothing Orders  

We will be making a regular monthly order for new clothing on the 1st of each month. If you wish to purchase a Phoenix branded Hoody, T-shirt or Vest top then just let reception know before the 1st of each month. 

We will need to know your size, the colour you want and we will pop it on the order for you. Prices are £29.99 for a Hoody and £15 for Vest or T-shirt. 

Orders typically take between 1 to 2 weeks to arrive after they have been ordered. 

Vending Drinks & Supplements

We have been testing out various products in new vending machine and we will soon be adding a second vending machine that will allow us to provide a much wider variety of products for you. 

We will soon run a facebook post to find out what drinks and supplements you would like to see being sold in the machines. 

Kind reminder 

Lockers – If you could please remember to close your locker door when you have finished with it then that would be greatly appreciated. This ensures that the next person does not walk into it on the way down the corridor. 

Many thanks 

“Raise Your Game!”

P.S. – If you no longer wish to receive emails then just reply to this email with “no thanks”.
