We’re a community at Choices, your membership allows you to partake in our studio classes. Different membership tiers are offered to suit the needs/budgets of individuals.

We have tried to make these articles as upbeat as we can over the past year or so. And naturally, there has been an undertone to encourage exercise and gym usage (which is hardly a shock given it’s our business!). But we try not to be too ‘salesy’ and keep the commentary and advice authentic.

In our last article, we asked the question ‘Should my Muscles Ache after Training?’ Not surprisingly there wasn’t a straight yes or no answer! It very much depends on what you were doing and more importantly what you were intending to achieve (especially when weight training, e.g. muscle tone vs muscle build).

Tired and aching muscles are one of the perceived benefits of a successful training session. Seems strange that these feelings should be associated with success, but it’s a sign that you have worked your body hard and you will reap the benefits (if not at that exact moment, then at some stage in the future!)

January is typically a big month for gyms and health clubs, with recruitment campaigns targeting lapsed members and people making fitness-related New Year resolutions. Most clubs set healthy recruitment targets for January, aiming to recruit new members who have set themselves ‘healthy’ targets! Following on this month, we are running a ‘Pounds for Pounds’ campaign, effectively working with you to help reach any weight-related targets you may have as part of your own health and fitness objectives.

Hands up if you have already abandoned your New Year resolution to get fit? Now put your hands down, and back up, and down, and up… see we have managed to kick start it again. Well, sort of!

So, we can now safely say goodbye to the 2019 Christmas season and New Year celebrations. It’s back to the day to day routine that is often further depressed by the short, dark and cold days of January.

The clock change at the end of October heralds the start of the silly season of events which include Halloween & Trick or Treat, Guy Fawkes night, festive parties, and the increasingly lengthy lead up to Christmas itself and then New Year.

Most of us who attend a gym and exercise regularly are fully aware of the importance of staying hydrated. Fluid loss during and after exercise needs to be replenished, and hence intake before, during and after a workout is an important part of any training regime.

Those of you who go to the gym in the early evening will currently be experiencing that confusing scenario of arriving during daylight and leaving in the dark. (And let us not discriminate against those who prefer early morning sessions and will obviously encounter the same phenomenon, just in reverse!).

In our articles to date we have mainly focused on the physical benefits of an active lifestyle and regular gym regime. But it has also been proven that the benefits to your mental health and wellbeing are just as strong. And possibly more importantly, they are immediate too.

It won’t be long before the tell-tale signs of summers’ end are upon us. Schools re-open, sunny summer evenings slowly subside, and media channels turn their attention to Halloween, bonfire night, and, most worryingly, Christmas.

So, schools out for summer and the holiday season has finally arrived. Usual routines must change slightly to accommodate kids at home, family visits and BBQ’s, festivals, days and weekends out and about, and hopefully a week or two away on holiday.

In our last article, we looked at the benefits of classes and group-based exercise on both body and mind. And integral to all successful gym and health club class programs is getting the right blend of classes. As well as the traditional high-intensity CV classes, members expect a healthy offering of other sessions such as yoga, pilates and balance/stretch classes.

There has been a huge increase in both the range and frequency of classes offered by gyms in recent years. It is now very unusual to find a gym that doesn’t have at least one studio and program of group classes available to members.

Positive experience: Cheap and almost cheerful. Some staff are much more friendly then others. Some need a lesson in how not to ignore customers when they are stood directly in front of you at the desk.

Fantastic experience: My local gym. I’ve been going for a number of years. Always lots of new as well as regular faces. The weight room, cardio and classes are inclusive areas and you’ll see a lot of different types of people there. Everyone welcome. No judgement. PT sessions and personal trainers are also excellent and offer a lot of variety and value for money.

Positive experience: Staff are friendly and always happy to help. But the place is tired and needs a refurb. It could also do with some more varied pieces of equipment. For the amount of equipment available at this gym I would say membership is overpriced. But, if you want a gym where you can access equipment and is easy going then this is the place for you.

Fantastic experience: My local gym, friendly staff fairly good equipment.

Lee B 4 years ago

Positive experience: Great gym with a good range of equipment. It is separated over 3 floors. The upper floor comprising of a free weights room, and a separate large room for different classes. The ground floor with varying choices of equipment for cardio and weights. Then there is a lower level which houses the changing rooms, steam room and sauna. I also believe they have a room for sports massage too (Don't hold me to that). What I have found surprising when I've visited at their busy times, is it appears to still be reasonably quiet, and enough equipment available to use. I really find the environment comfortable, and suitable for newbies looking for a place to work out without the disconcerting grunts of gym rats. If I was going to critique this place then I'd suggest the reception area be manned more consistently. However, this could be down to staffing levels. But I wouldn't let this put people off as there is a lot to offer

Positive experience: Good gym, i only go to this one at weekends. Never seems to busy, clean. Only downside they seem to use YouTube for music throughout gym so you here 30 second adverts now and again or random breaks in the music
