Katie Pic

We welcome Katie Preston to the Wellness Team. She’s started her new career with the aim of qualifying in and working with antenatal and postnatal clients. She is a Level 3 Personal Trainer and is looking forward to meeting our members. Please introduce yourself to Katie next time you’re in the Gym.

Gym Challenge

This month we had our Dice Game Workout Gym Challenge! Members could roll the dice 5 times to create a 5 station circuit. They performed each station for 30 secs and repeated each exercise twice.  They then rolled the dice for a final time to decide what exercise to finish on, the aim being to create a new varied workout and try something different to their Gym programme.  Well done to all those who took on the challenge.

In August we will set up our Gym Decathlon.  There will be beginner, intermediate and advanced levels to try categorised by gender and age range.  The aim is to complete 10 exercises and record the time taken to complete all 10, including transition times.  Please see the whiteboard for more information.

Benton Hall Fantasy Football League

We will be launching our Benton Hall Fantasy Football League for members to enjoy.  We had a great league last year with over 40 participants each paying £20 for entry into the League. Prizes are given out for the Top 6 places this season so don’t hesitate to enter again this year. Keep checking the whiteboard in the Gym for the Private League Code to enter.  You must pay your £20 prior to entry into the League and teams must be entered through the official website before the Premier League Season kicks off in August.

Studio News

We recently celebrated the new Les Mills releases with a big launch weekend on the 6th and 7th July and on the Sunday enjoyed sunshine for our first Outdoor Launch Party.  Well done to all the members and instructors who took part in this event, we posted some live videos on our Facebook page. If you are not yet following Benton Hall, you can do so here.

One of our long standing instructors, George will be leaving his Dance Aerobics and Aqua class at the end of July but will be teaching Ballroom once a month on a Tuesday and a Dance Fever Party once a month on a Friday night.
