What's on July 2018
The Beechdown Bulletin highlights can be emailed to you each month, with updates throughout the month... sign up here:https://www.beechdown.co.uk/newsletter
A scorching hot start to July let's hope this glorious weather continues, if you're too hot at home, don't forget, Beechdown is air-conditioned almost everywhere so come down and cool off! The Sanctuary's Drench Shower and Igloo were made for days like today!
Lots going on around the club this month including Family Day on Sunday 15th July, Prosecco for £1 and of course we're supporting England in the knockouts!
All the club news for the month ahead below...
Aquathlon is a sport that combines running and swimming. For the purpose of our challenge we are going to include the treadmill, AMT and the rower as equipment needed to participate. There will be 3 different levels for all abilities and you can complete as many Aquathlon challenge's as you'd like and try and beat your own time. Check the gym board out for more information on the challenge and the distances. Speak to a gym instructor for help setting up the challenge of if you require any help with the equipment. You can keep track of your distances and time on the board in the gym so you can stay on track and try and beat your times throughout the month.
Throughout July we will be displaying fruit infused water for you to try and help keep you refreshed during your workout. Now the summer is here it is extremely important you stay hydrated throughout the day and if you are not a fan of just plain water then this could help make sure you're getting enough day to day. Water is vital for your body and helps keep your body temperature regulated, you use water in all your Organs, tissues and Cells within your body. We will be adding different fruits to the water and this will hopefully inspire you to try new flavours at home. Look out on the gym desk and be sure to grab a cup when you can. If you have any flavours that you particularly like then let a member of the gym team know as we would love to share this with other members.
FRIDAYS LUNCHTIME QUEENAX
Have you tried Sarah's version of Queenax yet? Her background in crossfit gives her a totally different perspective on the intensity that its possible to push too! In the sessions so far we've seen Rowers, the Ski Erg and even the Curve Treadmill be a focal point. Booking recommended every Friday with Sarah at 1pm for 30minutes. Everyone welcome.
GYM FOR KIDS AGED 12+
Now is the perfect time to get your children who are 12+ to try the gym. With the summer holidays coming up and lots of free time on their hands, getting an induction or gym programme would be ideal to stay fit and healthy over summer, burn off some energy and help towards fitness for a sport they might play. It is extremely important that children are active and a great way at spending time with them whilst doing something in the gym, partaking in a family Queenax class or a teen friendly class in either studio. And let's be honest Fortnight has pretty much taken all the kids over the last few months......so let's rebel against it and get them all out and active!
See you in the Gym
See you in the Gym

AND don't feel studio shy if you've never tried any of these classes before because the new releases gives everyone a chance to sample new moves and new choreography, great music too, TOGETHER!!! The new releases are the perfect place to start!!!
LES MILLS COMPETITION TIME - WIN A WORKOUT TOP
An even bigger reason to get to all the Les Mills classes. From our fabulous team teaching launch weekend and forward throughout the month of July we will be running a competition. It's easy BUT a challenge for you all......individually. The challenge.....get to as many Les Mills classes as you can!!! Remember to pick up a ticket at reception before you attend your class then ask your instructor to sign it before you leave. Drop it back to reception where it'll be entered into a prize draw and at the end of the month one male and female winner will be picked out. Remember....the more Les Mills classes you attend the more chances you have of winning AND just to wet your appetite, and give you a little more incentive, the prizes will be up on display in the studio.
VIRTUAL STUDIO EARLY MORNING CLASSES
If you find yourself waking up early then why not come down the club and do an early morning class? Body Combats on Tuesday is now earlier at 6.10am and Wednesday Body Pump is at 6.10am too. Early in the mornings is the best time to exercise!
EXTRA PILATES ON WEDNESDAYS
A gentle reminder that we've now added an extra lunchtime Pilate's session to your timetable on Wednesday's from 12-1pm with Vicky. Vicky is an expert in the field of Pilates and offers many adaptions, progressions and options to accommodate everyone in their Pilates journey. A perfect time to fit in to a busy day.
BOOTYBARRE ON FRIDAYS
BOOTYBARRE CLASS From Friday 6th July onwards we will only be running one BootyBarre class. We know how much everyone thrives on a busy class, the "BUZZ" in the studio and the motivation of fellow classmates, plus a bit of healthy competition. So we've decided one hour's busy class is better than two half-filled 45 minute classes. This fabulously fun class is a fusion of ballet, using the traditional Barre, and Pilates, incorporating strength, flexibility and toning. Mix that in with the added dance element to ramp up your heart rate and you have a total body workout but without the high impact to joints and muscles.
GET SOME STUDIO ADVICE
Don't forget......if you want to meet me personally and talk about all things studio/classes OR just want some advice on your fitness in general, please look on the studio notice boards for times throughout the month when you can meet me. I am ALWAYS happy to help and believe that there is something on the timetable for everyone. Sometimes you just need help finding it.
The sunshine always makes us feel better, so come up and join us in the studio for a healthy body and mind too.

Well, another badminton season is over and we have had some excellent results. Firstly congratulations go to the Beechdown KO cup team of Lisa, Karen, Sally, Simon, Pete and Dan who won on the day. Fantastic result guys, you all played really well. Also, congratulations go to the following; Open B team for winning Division 3 and gaining promotion to Division 2, Mixed B team for coming second in Division 2 and gaining promotion to Division 1, which now gives us two teams in the Basingstoke top division. Mixed A narrowly lost out by 4 points on retaining their Mixed title in Division 1 to St Mary's but a valiant effort! Our ladies had some tough matches this year with the two leagues merging in to one but everyone held their own and had some great results!

BEECHDOWN HAS A BRITISH CHAMPION IN SQUASH
Lance Kinder has added to a glorious history of success in the World of Squash winning the Over 80's category at the Prestigious British Open recently held at the Collets club Surrey. The tournament had competitors from as far afield as USA. Lance was the most experienced player in the tournament and came through three matches and defeated fellow brit Malcolm Gillham 3-1 in a competitive final. Since taking up the game Lance has been Squash World Champion in Singles, Double and Team categories and has won the British National titles 8 times! Lance has represented English Squash 72 times in the home international and has only lost 1! He has enjoyed being the captain of England on 58 occasions. It takes a lot of commitment to be the best at anything and Lance keeps himself in great shape by exercising at three days per week and playing squash matches at least twice a week. Lance at 82 year olds, is motivated purely by enjoying playing and has now qualified to compete at the Squash World Championship in Charlottesville, USA in Late July.
Based on his commitment and dedication to training we have every confidence that he will enjoy a successful World Championship. Good Luck Lance
