The Government recommends exercising at least 5 times per week for 30 minutes. Government reports show that ease of access is important to maintain regular exercise and the availability of The Fitness Centre at the Club will provide this to Members. (Dept of Health factsheet November 2011).
There is strong scientific evidence that being physically active can lead to a healthier and happier life and boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy as well as reducing the risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
It is well recognised that, regardless of age, regular exercise reduces the risk of major illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers by up to 50% and lowers the risk of early death by up to 30%.
Swimming and water-based exercises put less strain on joints as the body is supported by water; those with back pain, spine, hip and knee conditions benefit from water-based activities.
We believe it is more convenient and less expensive for those Members who currently travel to other clubs or gym facilities.
