We’ve had a slight jiggle-around with the current equipment layout and have managed to squeeze in two of the three new indoor cycling bikes. Obviously, once we have undertaken the building works later in the year we will be re-arranging the complete cardiovascular equipment once again.

Let’s Move for a Better World
Members now using the new Unity Equipment and using the MyWellness App will notice a measurement of “Moves”. Well, what is a MOVE?
The Move index is associated to the movement you perform and the correlated metabolic activity level of your body. It’s independent from the body weight, but through the body weight is directly correlated with your calorie expenditure.
Over the following months, members using the App will notice challenges being created by the gym staff. Some challenges will be directly linked to the moves performed and in a club challenge, the system of monitoring moves is a fairer way of measuring activity between members.
Our resident Dance & Yoga Instructors Becks White and Vicky Lightowler from The Starlight Company have produced their own show “DON’T STOP BELIEVING” In collaboration with local Choir the Helen Vereker Singers and also featuring Aspire Dance Studio.
You may have seen the girls rehearsing their numbers in the studio here at Wye Leisure but to see them in full flow, they will be dancing along with the rest of their company at Hereford’s Courtyard Theatre, on:
Following our recent roll out of new cardiovascular equipment and the introduction of the new Unity screens, members will need to speak with a trainer if they have either:
A massive thank you to all of our members with their understanding during the 2 day closure of the fitness suite, whilst Technogym swapped over the Cardiovascular Equipment. Things went well and we re-opened the fitness suite on Wednesday morning (02/03/16) as planned.
Installation of New Cardiovascular Equipment
Dates: Monday 29th February and Tuesday 1st March
Duration: ALL DAY CLOSURE
Monday the 29th of February is the day that Technogym deliver 39 new pieces of cardiovascular equipment to our fitness suite. Their installation team have estimated a closure of 2 days in order to undertake the swap, but please note all other parts of the club will be open as normal.
As normal, we thank everyone for their understanding whilst the fitness suite is closed.
We’ve changed the way we roll-out the weekly class updates. Now, instead of sending out an email every week, we pop a copy on our website for interested parties to view. This way, we don’t irritate members with too many unwanted emails… The link to the web page: http://www.wyeleisure.co.uk/blog/?page_id=2778 or if in doubt, simply view our online timetable and the link is viewable in the right column.
Unity, is Technogyms new Android based console or screen to which customers will use to operate all cardio equipment. We popped a little video showing customers these new unity screens in previous newsletters (if you missed it, click here). Our trainers have now started running group inductions taking about 10 minutes, to show gym users how to use the new screens and what to expect once the equipment is changed over.
Please note, once the equipment is changed over you will need to see a trainer to show you have to start / use the equipment, unless you get something sorted now!
We have laid on extra staff to undertake these quick inductions. Don’t leave things until the last minute… call us today to arrange one, on 01432 860860 (Option 3) and ask to book your “Unity Induction”.
Hopefully members are noticing a vastly improved Wi-Fi coverage and internet speed at the club. This is due to Wye Leisure now being hooked-up to Fibre, we have had 9 new access points around the building and some flashy new switches/hubs in our office that regulate usage to each user. We know to some, internet speeds of less than 1GB still seem slow, but to us they are epically fast!
Things are only going to get better here, as we plan another Fibre Line into the building to offload our own usage onto a separate line.
Back in November we reported a visit to the Technogym HQ to view new cardiovascular equipment in order to renew equipment here at the club. We have great news, in December the order was placed! We plan a staged upgrade of the fitness suite over the next 8ish months and detail below what you can expect and when:
We want to get as much maintenance work undertaken during the week up to Christmas, as it’s normally the quietest of the year… So, just to let everyone know that the Spa Pool, Sauna, Steam Room and Showers in Pool 3 will be closed between 7.00pm tonight (22/12/15) and will re-open Boxing Day.
To start off the New Year, we’ve now added 4 new classes to the timetable. Following popular demand, there are now two new Yoga, one Pilates and a Saturday morning Spin class scheduled each week. We hope these will be met well!
Bookings for the classes are open now, so please feel free to call us on 01432 860860 (Option 3) to book, but don’t dordle, as the spaces are sure to go fast!

Whilst you are all out last minute Christmas Shopping, we have decided to do some maintenance to sort some of the tiles that have come off on the Hydro Pool. On Sunday, we will drain down the system and address the areas where tiles have come off. All going well, we’ll have it filled and heated ready for Tuesday morning, fingers crossed. All other areas of the club will be open as normal.
Closed from Sunday 20th December
Re-Open Tuesday 22nd December
Many thanks in advance for your understanding and patience whilst we undertake these works
As part of our Wi-Fi upgrade and what we hope is an improved service, we have now changed the log-on process. As from today (16th December 15) when connecting to the Wi-Fi, your mobile device will re-direct you to a “Check in for free internet” page. This is a Facebook Check-In page and anyone who is a member of Facebook can simply “check in” via Facebook to connect to the Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi is still free to use and it’s only this check-in process that’s changed. Anyone who is not a member of Facebook, can simply by-pass this by clicking “Skip Check-In” and they will be re-directed to our landing page (Currently set as our Facebook page) via a log-in screen. Then you can browse to your hearts content!
