Holmer's Headlines June 2019

29 Jun 2019

From your Club Manager 

Hello Members,

It’s now officially summer! Our building is now at its best. The trees, flowers, hanging baskets and the wildlife; they’re all perfect. Additionally…
 
Its BBQ time!
Equally as important as our “Merry Members Christmas get together” our annual FREE members BBQ is such a highlight of our social events calendar. Myself and the team really do look forward to it as it is a chance to show genuinely how thankful we are to have you as a member of the Holmer Park family. Tickets are now LIMITED so get yours quickly from the Orchard Café. Please ensure you bring your ticket along on the day.

Other events that we have recently held include the Temple Spa launch night (you can see more about our new relationship with them at https://www.holmerpark.co.uk/news/view/temple-spa-products-now-available/ ) and our photography workshop with Ian.

Building project Update
A quick update on the changing room project - I can tell you that we will shortly be finished with the female changing rooms and will soon be starting in the males. As it currently stands, we have every intention of opening the newly refurbished female changing rooms at some point during WC 1st July.
 
As you may have seen we have also taken this quieter time of year to carry out other maintenance including: 

  1. Painting in the Health Club
  2. The new flooring in the spin studio was put down and taken back up due to a supplier error. This was incredibly frustrating and we’re currently reviewing our options as to what to do next!
  3. Replanting some of the lavender, planting flowers in the pots at the main entrance and our hanging baskets that will soon be with us.
  4. 4th and 5th July the studio will be closed to allow for the room to be repainted and air conditioning to be serviced.

 Thank you all for your patience. I hope you can see through this ongoing work that we really care and are committed to doing the beautiful building the justice it deserves. We strive to provide you with the best club possible.
As always if you do wish to contact me direct, you can by emailing: [email protected]

 Thank you again for being part of the Holmer Park family.
 
Kind Regards,

 
Steven Chadwick
General Manager

 

Relax, it’s Spa Manager Claire…

Thank you to all that came to our Temple Spa Event on the 14th of June. We have not done an event of this nature for some time and I was so happy that we had to close the bookings for the event after just 2 days! Great support and I really hope you all enjoyed your time with us.

To avoid disappointed with our next event ‘Pimms and Pamper’ on the 30th of August, please note that booking is now open and you can reserve your space at the club reception!

In othe news this month we welcome Cath to our reception team. Please help us make her feel welcome by selling hello! Cath joins us from another centre in Hereford so she is familiar with our industry and the way we work. She is busy with her training at the moment.

My treatment this month comes from our BRAND-NEW treatment menu…

Work It Out Massage - Deep Muscle Massage
A detoxifying, deep tissue massage that relieves fluid retention and works out tired, aching muscles. Using the ingenious WORK IT OUT detox massage oil (available to purchase from the Spa) including essential oils of Juniper, Lavender and Cypress. We begin with full body brushing to stimulate the circulation to improve lymph drainage. Then we perform a deep tissue, body-boosting massage with muscle-fitness techniques and movements to really give your muscles a work out - working on knots, tensions and tightness to help the detox process. Detox-licious!

30-minute treatment - Member price Monday to Friday £27.75! (Usual  price £37)

60-minute treatment (full body) - Member price Monday to Friday £46.45! (Usual price £62)

Hi Fitness Coordinator Claire here, 

Our first Bootcamp has started! It is going fantastically well and you can check out our social media pages to see some of the great photos. We will be carrying out a full review at the end of the week to see if it is something that we can do again.
 
Assault bike
I’m so excited to say that we have ordered an Assault Bike for the circuit area!  Assault bikes are great for HIIT training and are a really challenging piece of equipment. This is how Precor describe the Assault; Air Bike Elite: “The Assault AirBike Elite takes interval training to the next level, with a smooth ride, ergonomic design, and enhanced console capabilities that deliver an intense and refined workout experience. Individualised and infinite adjustments allow exercisers to keep it mellow and level to target a heart rate, or jump to high intensity interval training for a serious workout”.
 
Punch bag
We have also added a freestanding punch bag to the circuit area. This has proved to be a popular addition and lots of members have already started including this in their workout.

If you have any questions, drop me an email to: [email protected]

Hello It's Head Chef Ben reporting,

Having launched our new menu back in March I have been really happy with the feedback we have received. We have a variety of dishes with healthier options and our specials continue to be well received. The next stage of our menu progression would be to display the calorie contents for each dish - I wondered if you could just let me know, by email, whether or not that is something that you would like to see? If you could let me know by the 7th of July, I can then start working on this if it is something that would be helpful for you. Please send your thoughts [email protected] 

Don’t forget our BBQ on Friday- there are limited tickets available so get them quick and I can’t wait to see you on the day!

Please email me on  [email protected]  if you would like to discuss anything relating to the Orchard Cafe.
