March Managers Corner

Well what can we say? What an exciting month for 1escape health Club winning National Gym / Health Club of the Year at the Nutramino National Health and Fitness Awards.  I am so proud of of the team and delighted to see 1escape get the recognition it deserves at National level.  You can read all about the night here.

It’s business as usual after all the excitement and over the past month we have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure 1escape is always a safe environment for all our staff and members. We held fire warden training, manual handling for our team and have First Aid, Chemical Awareness and Legionella training in the coming weeks.

Although we always hope that as few accidents as possible occur while our members or staff are using the facilities we are proud to say that 85% of our team are qualified first aiders meaning that should anything happen we are always close-by. I would also ask our members to make themselves aware of the closest fire exits in each activity area. Your trainers will from now on be letting you know these locations in your classes. If you have any queries in relation to these, please do not hesitate to ask one of the team.

We have once again had Paul our ‘scuba diver tiler’  working hard repairing the tiles in the pool. Paul has been helping us maintain the pool for over 7 years and does a fantastic job limiting disruption as much as possible.

We also completed a  face-lift on our sauna with our steam room scheduled for the coming month. We do have a Jacuzzi closure for two days however this is for essential maintenance and could not be avoided. We hope that you are enjoying the new cushions on poolside and have a couple of new additions ordered and on the way in the coming weeks which we hope will make your poolside experience even more enjoyable.

As always, we ask that you respect the code of conduct for classes and the use of the app. We have increased the cancellation period from 30 minutes to 2 hours. This should mean that people on the waiting lists will not be added to the class 30 minutes before it commences and will give them enough time to attend the class or call reception to cancel if the cutoff time has passed.

The rules regarding bookings and classes are in place to ensure that all members can attend the classes of their choice. Current statistics show that class attendance is on average at 75% which means there is plenty of space for everybody but if the rules are not respected then members may lose out. Anybody found to be abusing the online bookings will have their app privileges revoked indefinitely. If you have any queries then please contact the team at reception.

If you have any feedback or questions regarding the club or your membership, please do not hesitate to contact me.
