I need this for my mental health

As we welcome larger numbers of members to the growing variety of outdoor classes, there has been a resounding theme. “I need this mentally” – “I started to feel better, even as I approached the gym”. The amount of stress generated by ‘lockdowns’ has had a massive impact on society.

Members have been saying that they missed the physical release, the boost to morale, and the positive and supportive community at the club. Fortunately, it’s becoming easier to offer this as we can now organize outdoor group training for up to 25 at a time and we now have 27 weekly outdoor classes along with 14 on ZOOM all accessed from the Members Only page.

In past years the most common reason at this time of year would have been ‘To get Beach Ready!’ So, things have changed as people find even more important reasons to exercise.

On Thursday Club Physical attended a virtual meeting of the industry and the Ministry of Health presented a copy of the new Vaccine Pass. Under the coming Red-Light system, the onus will be on you to supply this Pass before you first re-enter the club. It also looks like the Ministry will need you to also supply an approved ID. Once presented, you will just need your usual towel and membership card for subsequent visits. As things get closer, and the Government confirms their rules we’ll keep you updated, unless you hear it first!
