Kids in the gym – update!

Apologies as we published this incorrectly last month. To clarify the situation is as follows:

Aged 12 and under – all children to be accompanied by an adult (parent or trainer)

Aged 13-15 – children may workout unaccompanied providing we hold a disclaimer signed by their parent/ carer. Please ask for a disclaimer if you would like your child to train unaccompanied.

Aged 16 and over – free to train unaccompanied

PT for teenagers

We have received a few requests for us to offer more classes specifically for teenagers. We are currently  reviewing this and will look to make more classes available from September when the timetable next changes. However, in the mentime, Tim Rew is starting up weekly PT sessions for 2-4 teenagers at a flat cost of £10 per person. If this interests you, please email Tim at Tim@freestyle360.co.uk

360 Endurance Games 2017[2]

Endurance Games Update!

Endurance Games Postponed

ENDURANCE GAMES POSTPONED

As you may or may not know our Endurance Games was scheduled for Saturday 20th May. A number of people have expressed their interest but are not available that weekend. With this in mind, as well as the poor British weather, we have decided that it will be best to postpone the Endurance Games including the Meat and Drink to a later date this Summer (TBC)

We hope that this hasn’t ruined any plans for anyone and we will release the confirmed date as soon as possible but please do keep an eye on our social media and notice boards in the gym.

Thank you for your understanding.

Running, cycling, paddle-boarding, swimming, mountain hiking, beach workouts, volleyball, paddle tennis, basketball, there really is something for everyone and all levels can be accommodated so what’s stopping you?

This year we are mixing it up a little and also offering a Xabia cycle tour! Flying out on Thurs 21st Sept we will have 3 full days of cycling around the beautiful Marina Alta on organised cycle trips before flying home on the Monday. If you are not familiar with the area, rest assured it is absolutely stunning and different routes will be planned to ensure that novices or nervous riders can go at their own pace yet the more accomplished riders will feel tested. Full training plans will be given out so, again, beginners are welcome!

Costing of both trips will be announced soon. If you would like to be involved in both trips (totalling 10 days) a discounted price will be available.

Please email rachel@freestyle360.co.uk if you are interested in either (or both!) trips.

Other 360 News…

Defibrillator

At last we now have our own defibrillator here at 360 and Tim is joking that he can now push us even harder! Jokes aside, we hope we never ever have to use it but it is reassuring to know that it is here just in case.

In the event of anyone having a suspected cardiac arrest, please seek immediate assistance from a member of staff as they have all been trained in how to use the equipment. However, it should be pointed out that, once opened, the defibrillator will talk you through the steps required so, if you can’t immediately locate a staff member or if it is the staff member having the cardiac arrest, then don’t hesitate, use it! It will be located in the gym on the wall outside of the PT office.

Yoga

Don’t forget that we have a new yoga teacher, Alex Belcourt, running classes here at 10.30am on Tuesdays. Alex would like to offer newbies their first session free so if you haven’t tried it before, why not give it a go?

Focus Groups – volunteers needed!

We will be holding some focus groups shortly to find out what our members want. We are looking for volunteers who are happy to give us an hour or so of their time to provide open and honest feedback. If you are interested, please let Rachel knowrachel@freestyle360.co.uk

Altitude Training

So our new ‘Altitude Platform’ is almost ready to roll! We have three pieces of cardio equipment on the platform which you can use in conjunction with our personal hypoxic training to really maximise your fitness, speed, endurance & recovery. This type of training is used across the world by many top athletes and we consider ourselves to be incredibly fortunate to be able to offer it here at Freestyle 360.

Sessions are £15 per hour booked in blocks of 12 at £180 (2 sessions with a Personal Trainer and 10 training sessions). You will also need to buy your own personal mask at £30.

Alternatively speak to your personal trainer if you would like to include Altitude Training as part of your normal PT sessions.

If you are interested, please email info@freestyle360.co.uk for more information.

Please note that we have to give priority for the equipment on the platform to those who have signed up for Altitude Training. However, if the equipment is not being used feel free to jump on!
