It's been a busy few months at BodyGuards since we have taken over and your patience and encouragement through these early months has been much appreciated.

Our aim is to us our experience, enthusiasm and new ideas to build on the already high reputation of the service that we offer to our clients here at BodyGuards and provide private quality personal training through our highly qualified and experienced trainers. We can train you at home, in your office or at our newly refurbished private gym which is now equipped with top quality functional equipment that allows us to train everyone, whether you are an elite athlete or just needing help to get back to fitness and an improved lifestyle.

We look forward to seeing you in the gym soon, Tony & Dunk

What's been happening

Redecoration You may have noticed the redecoration of the gym, complete with 'ipod' style imagery, designed and painted by local artists. Together with the new layout and the new high quality functional equipment, we hope you agree, we have enhanced the atmosphere in the gym.

We will also be brightening up the changing room facilities in the near future

Website The website has been undergoing some changes to make it more user friendly and we would like to encourage clients to log on to the site to keep up to date with fitness issues and events that are happening at the gym.

Nutrition and Lifestyle In addition to the website, do take a look at the nutrition and lifestyle board that is displayed on the gym wall. We hope it will provide you with helpful and up to date information on relevant nutritional issues, giving ideas on how to implement these lifestyle changes. If you need more information about nutrition and lifestyle choices, please ask your trainer.

Massage

Sports massage can benefit anyone taking part in sports or exercise. It deals with the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body such as muscles, ligaments and tendons and has many benefits…

Relief of muscle pain and tension Improved mobility Injury treatment Reduction of stress and anxiety Pre and Post event massage Regardless of whether you exercise or play sport to keep fit, or compete at club or international level, sports massage may have something to offer you. At BodyGuards we have a private treatment room and our own fully qualified massage therapists who have built a sound reputation as some of the best in the area, so if you would like to make a booking please contact the gym.

What's On

Group Session Why not complement your one to one training with a group session…

The BodyGuards running club is on Wednesday evenings at 6pm. We are now getting a good turn out of mixed abilities. Running with others helps you go that extra distance and with a trainer to add variety such as measured hill sprints you will soon notice an improvement in your running ability.

You can also take advantage of the circuit class on Tuesday evenings at 8pm. This is another great way to complement your personal training, providing a fun, safe and effective means of increasing your cardio vascular fitness, core stability, flexibility and general fitness.

So come along and give it a try…

Running Club – Wednesday 6-7 pm Circuit Training – Tuesday 8-9 pm Social Events Some clients have expressed an interest in taking part in BodyGuards events outside the gym so we are exploring the possibility of a go-karting trip. If you are interested please have a word with any of the trainers and get signed up. Dates will be organised when we know what the uptake is.

We are also looking at the possibility of organising a charity “Coast to Coast” bike event across 3 days, so again, please let us know if you are interested as this is number dependant.

Questionnaires Thank you to all those who replied to the recent client questionnaire. Your views and comments were much appreciated. There were some helpful ideas and we hope to implement as many as possible in the future.

Congratulations & Good Luck

Congratulations to… client John Bruce who received high performance training at BodyGuards and has become the number one Shotokan Karate Senior in Great Britain.

Good luck to… Mark Mitchell who is training for the Cleveland triathlon. We wish him the best of luck and hope that the training and support he is receiving at BodyGuards, along with his own determination and hard work, will help him achieve his goal.

Good luck to all those clients who are taking part in the Great North Run. Hopefully your training is on schedule. Why not join the BodyGuards running club on Wednesday evenings and increase your miles.

Refer a friend

Due to its success we are continuing to run our “Refer a friend” promotion. So if you have a friend or colleague who you think may be interested why not refer them and receive 1 free session and a BodyGuards t-shirt for yourself and allow your friend to benefit from a free wellness assessment.
