The Benefits of Joining the Gym

15th Nov 2017

We all know that doing regular exercise is a good idea but that thought isn’t always translated into action.
The problem is there’s a perception that gyms and leisure clubs are an intimidating place and we can understand why. The fear of working up a sweat in a room full of fitness fanatics is something many of us share however; the reality is very different at SenSpa.
So if you’re mentally plucking up the courage to join a gym now or in the New Year, allow us to put your worries at bay and tell you why SenSpa may just be the ticket to your fitness success:

You’ll save £120 and keep on track

Personal training sessions are beneficial for many reasons; they keep you on track, they’re motivating, you’ll learn new exercise techniques, routines and receive advice on working with specific muscle groups.

Many gyms charge between £30-£60 for an hour’s PT session and this is on top of the monthly membership fee. As part of your membership at SenSpa you’ll receive FREE weekly 60 minute PTs to help you meet your fitness goals.
Don’t fret – these are optional however to get the very best out of your workouts our members tend to fully embrace this fabulous benefit.

It’s more than just a gym

In addition to our well-equipped gym we have an impressive class timetable of over 25 classes to choose from every week. From spinning to Aqua aerobics, Zumba to Yoga we offer the perfect combination of high and low intensity classes to satisfy your mind, body and soul. Plus, in the summer we organise a weekly cycle ride into the forest to change up our routine, embracing the great outdoors and exercising in a different way.

Whether you opt for a post-gym swim or early morning dip, our 14m UV treated swimming pool is awaiting your arrival to complete some serious lengths followed by a beneficial steam and sauna session. Integrating this time into your wellbeing regime will do wonders for your mind, body and soul; simply read our blog about the benefits of saunas to find out more.  

Get to know your body

Every gym offers an induction however; we dig a little deeper to help you get to know your body, and a tailored health journey to accompany our findings. From heart to cholesterol checks, to nutritional and exercise plans, this consultation will ensure you are not only reaping the benefits externally from your workouts, but internally as well. The fitness team are expertly trained and highly experienced in a variety of qualifications, and training members with conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, brain injuries, heart conditions, diabetes and many more.

Make new friends!

Naturally you’ll get to know your fellow members as you see them most days however, we also organise quarterly members social evenings. These events are always hugely popular – especially our summer party so if you’re new to the area or looking to get to know a new group of people this is the perfect opportunity.

Exclusive member benefits

As a SenSpa member you’ll receive 20% our extensive collection of spa treatments, perfect to soothe those post-exercise muscles, iron out some knots or purely to relax! We also run a monthly competition in the gym. Those who use the gym more than 8 times a month are entered into a draw to win a complimentary 30, 60 or 90 minute treatment.

If that wasn’t good enough we also offer 10% off in all 5 of our restaurants here at Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa, and at our sister hotel in Beaulieu, The Montagu Arms.
To add even more benefits to the mix we offer £250 worth of complimentary vouchers to those who pay for their memberships up front for a full year giving you the freedom to indulge in multiple spa treatments, treat a friend and come for a spa day, book an overnight stay or put towards Christmas gifts.

So the benefits of joining a gym, and ours in particular, go further than a six pack!
