Acorns… So Much More Than Just A Gym
“We love coming to the gym – well, this gym!” The words of one of our members, and what a great example of how to enjoy yourself and improve your health and fitness! Maggie and her partner have recently lost over 10 stone between them and now actively enjoy using the gym and pool plus going to classes – also coming to socialise. Last week it was the monthly quiz, the week before Cocktails & Dreams night and coming up next is Comedy Night. There’s always something going on for members to have fun at and they’re welcome to bring non-members too.
Acorns Manager, Helen, who has been at the club for over five years, says that it really is more than just a gym. “We’ve got a great range of facilities here with 3 squash courts, 2 tennis courts, a pool, spin and dance studios with over 70 classes a week and of course the gym, and we also have a bar/café, crèche, physio and several beauty services all under one roof. Our range of inclusive memberships allows for maximum flexibility. It’s brilliant. You see members and their families and friends meeting up here, eating, drinking, working, relaxing, socialising…it’s a little word all of its own and a nice place to be.”
So what does it cost to be a member of Acorns? Just over a pound a day! Membership includes use of all facilities and all classes at all times of the day. During the week the club opens at 6.30am until 10pm and weekend hours are 8.30am until 8pm – allowing for plenty of flexibility. You can be doing a spin class at 6.45am or HIIT Core at 7.20am or yoga or pilates in the evening – plus a whole load more throughout the day. Recent additions are PiYo (a combo of pilates and yoga) and a high intensity aqua class. There’s also Splashers Swim School for little ones to learn to swim and private swimming lessons available as well as 3 PTs offering fitness sessions. Something for everyone!
The bar area is licensed for up to 150 people and has an outside balcony and terrace area. It’s a great venue for a party and can be hired for private use by members and non-members. Just call 01342 715022 for details.
