What's on April 2018
The Beechdown Bulletin highlights can be emailed to you each month, with updates throughout the month... email firstname.lastname@example.org
BEAT THE INSTRUCTOR
The instructors have put their heads together and have decided to challenge our members to 4 exercises. You are to complete the challenges and try and beat the instructor's time. The challenges are 500m row as fast as you can, full sit ups (using Queenax) in 30 seconds, how many Battle rope double slams and how many bunny hops over a bench can you do in 30 seconds. You can write down your score and then compete against the instructors for the entire month. We want to beat you so you have to make sure you keep on it and improve over the duration of the month. If you are unsure of any of the exercises then ask an instructor to show you. There will be a tracking form up in the gym for you to be able to track your times and progress and keep an eye on the instructor’s scores.
APRIL QUEENAX CHALLENGE
This month the Queenax challenge is going to be one burpee and one jump (touching Queenax pull up bar) we will provide a video on Facebook for you to watch so you know what you are doing, also you could grab an instructor to demonstrate in the gym. There will of course be modifications for this exercise so it can be achieved by anybody. You can keep track of your score on the Queenax board.
This month on the gym desk we are going to be answering common fitness questions we get asked all the time, for example have you ever wondered when it’s best to consume protein? How much protein should you eat, or is it important to have a rest day and why? Check out the gym board for these questions and answers.
As you are all probably aware the commonwealth games start this month and we would like to encourage you to participate in at least 5k if not the full marathon on the 15th April. Or you can work your way to 26 miles throughout the month. Over 5,000 athletes compete in these games and there is around 15 different sports and over 250 different events. Let’s show our support!!

We have an initiative called SMART START where you can try the class for 15-20 minutes and then leave feeling successful but not overwhelmed. Keep coming back until you feel ready to stay for the whole class, but there’s no rush. Build up to this slowly and get fitter along the way. Fitness is a journey and although we take it together in the studio it’s never ending so it doesn’t matter how long it takes.....just that you start the journey! Please note: All Classes are bookable that weekend, so please book to avoid disappointment.
FREE CLASS PASS
We have two classes in April where you can bring a non-member to join you in your workout. WaterWorks on Monday’s @ 7.30pm with Olga and Aqua Fit on Wednesday’s @ 7pm with Lisa Water exercise offers a deluge of benefits such as cardiovascular stamina, strength and flexibility. It helps burn body fat, increases circulation AND can help you rehabilitate healing muscles and joints as the buoyancy of the water helps take the impact of your own body weight away from the joints and muscles. The combination of strength and cardio workouts mixed with water resistance in aquatic exercise ensures the whole body is getting a full workout. If you’d like to bring a friend with you to either of these fabulous classes this month then please visit reception and ask for a class pass. Your guest may join you and gain entry to the club just before the class is due to start. Don’t forget; you can also bring your teenagers to join you in these classes.

Stay and play Science fun where we made slime, lava lamps and watched explosive experiments! World Book Day where we all dressed up as characters in the snow, wrote stories and bought our books to life with role play! Mother’s Day we ran competitions, planted bulbs and decorated pots for the special person in our life .Sports Relief Disco, wear it red was so much fun! We spent hours dancing in aid of an amazing charity! Easter Friday was a crazy day but lots of fun! We had lots of you for the egg hunt, parachute fun and nest baking. The children absolutely love taking part in the activities and I am pleased to see more and more children in the weekday evenings 4:30-6:30pm Monday-Friday. Remember age 3-9years can just turn up and we can drop and pick up to any sporting activity they wish to attend.
April is another busy month with lots planned... See the attached Kids Holiday Activities..Here

JUNGLE GYM - NEW SOFT PLAY AREA COMING SOON
Exciting news. We're delighted to announce that a brand new soft play area will be being installed after the Easter Holidays!! The new Bespoke Design is on show in club now. The project will take around a week, so Jungle Gym will be closed from Monday 16th of April.
The next course of swimming lessons start after the holiday and will be available to book Tuesday 3rd April in the afternoon.
From 1st of April Creche Fees will increase to £5.50 for a 2 hour Session. Whilst we recognise a price increase is never popular; this is still a very reasonable rate for the excellent service provided. All existing vouchers will be honoured. Prices will change at Reception from 1st of April. Block bookings of 10 sessions will cost £55 or individual bookings will be £6.
From April 1st Childcare time will change to be 9-11am and 11am -1pm. We believe this fits better for the majority of those attending the creche. It also aligns better with the class timetable. Through April (as a test) we will be allowing a 1040 drop off strictly for those attending the classes at 1045 only. The later creche finish of 1pm will allow access to Monday Pilates at 1215, Tuesday Flow Yoga at 12 and Friday Body Balance at 12.
We are looking forward to a jam packed 2 week Easter holiday! We have a weekly competition which you will find on our Kidzboard outside the squash courts. Please see attached timetable for all the excitement we have in store!
