Moving to Clubright – our new software and bookiing system

22 September, 2020

The Fitness Mosaic is moving to a new member management system – Clubright

Members only need to do two things : download the app using this link and set up your password (ensure you click “ALREADY HAVE ACCOUNT” – Easy peasy! The app will allow you to book classes, gym visits and gain entry via the barcode. Our access sytem with MBO will cease from Thursday the 23rd and you will need to use the new app to gain entry. 

Members using pin code or member card can continue using this. 

 

Bookings will need to be made through Clubright from the 24th. The entry and booking system work hand in hand… as such, no booking = no entry. Any bookings whether gym visit or class will need to be rebooked through Clubright. 

 

There are a small number of new users to the gym who we don’t have payment details for. We have emailed you directly but you may have missed this email. 

 

The biggest benefit of our move to Clubright are the automatic integrations making for a better user experience; eGym, InBody both have existing links as well as a future anticipated link with Amplify, delivering our new on Demand and Live Classes. 

 

What can YOU do when the gym reopens

22 July, 2020

Hi there

We recently wrote to you outlining our actions to help keep you safe when working out. If you missed this, please take a read here.

We wanted to share with you our gym re-opening hours and ask for your help when in the club to ensure we remain COVID- secure.

INITIAL OPENING HOURS

To start with, we will open with reduced opening hours. This allows our staff to arrive safely. As TFL modify their operating schedules and the gym gets busier, we will look to increase these hours and notify you accordingly.

 

Monday – Thursday   07:00-21:00

Friday                        07:00-20:00

Saturday                    08:00-16:00

Sunday                      08:30-15:00

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

1. Entry to the club requires you to book in. Members will be asked to book their gym and class visit in via the members app. Sadly, without a booking, you will be denied entry.

2. Initially, bookings (both gym & classes) will be restricted to one hour. We therefore ask members at 55 minutes to be finishig their session and exiting the club.

3. Please arrive ready for your workout. Whilst the changing rooms and showers will be in use, they will be open for restricted numbers. So, if you can, please change and shower at home.

4. Where you can, please bring your own yoga/pilates/gym mats.

5. Please bring your own water bottle. You can refill at the club, but drinking from the tap is not permitted.

6. Please wash or sanitise your hands on entry and after using equipment.

7. Work with us to maintain social distance; if someone is using equipment next to you; be mindful and keep at 2m apart.

8. Pllase try not share equipment when working out.

9. Following WHO guidelines, we recommend face coverings not to be used whilst working out as this can restrict your breathing.

8. Lastly, if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask you to STAY at home.

With days left to reopening, we cannot wait to see you!

The Gym’s plans for reopening

15 July, 2020

Hi there,

Following our gym reopening email on Friday, we wanted to provide some information regarding our plans to keep you safe.

We have detailed below a number of actions that we have delivered to ensure your safety when you return. These actions/ requests have been produced following the UK Active and Government guidelines for the safe reopening of indoor leisure venues.

What we have done

1. We have reduced gym and studio capacities to allow for social distancing. Further details will be available on this soon.

2. We have installed a new air filtration system in the gym which actively kills airborne viruses. These are already in place in the studio.

3. The air conditioning has been fully serviced and cleaned in preparation for re-opening.

4. We have purchased a disinfecting, eco-friendly “fogger” which will be used daily in both the studio and gym areas. This is in addition to our daily and nightly contract cleaning.

5. We have increased the number of hand sanitising stations and added many more towel dispensing units to allow you to wipe equipment down both pre & post use.

6. We have increased the frequency of cleaning in “high touch point” areas.

7. We have created a simple one way system when within the building which will reduce social interaction with others.

8. We have purchased and will be conducting temperature checks on all team members to ensure we reduce the risk of potential staff-member transmission.

9. We have purchased extensive PPE for all of The Fitness Mosaic team.

We cannot wait to welcome you back to the club,

The Fitness Mosiac Team

 

The Gym is reopening!

13 July, 2020

The news last week that Gyms can safely reopen from Saturday 25th July is incredibly exciting and one that we have been eagerly waiting for!

We have been very busy these last few months preparing for a safe return and these plans will continue until our reopening.

Over the coming days and weeks we will be updating you about how we plan to reopen the gym safely following the Government and UK Active guidelines. We will email you about your membership, studio timetables, changes to how we will be operating and how you can do your bit to keep you and your fellow gym-goers safe.

Please also keep an eye on our social media channels and website for all the latest reopening plans.

We cannot wait to welcome you back,

Boosting your immunity

16 March, 2020

By Claud Serjeant:

All nutritional products below should ideally be organic and from a reputable source 🙏🏻

Vitamin A is very protective against viruses. Organic beef Liver is a great source as well as a reputable acid Liver oil supplement with Vit A. Liver is quite potent and therefore only needs to be eaten once a week.

Vitamin D as we know is not a vitamin but an important regulatory hormone. Organic eggs, butter, fish and meats are the best sources. Vit D is key to immunology.

Cook everything in Coconut oil because it is high in saturated fat and contains Malic Acid. Malic acid is important for pathogen immunology. Saturated fat is key for the lungs to function well. Avoid margarine, low fat butters and spreads. They deplete the immune system by stimulating the stress mechanisms.

Have organic bone broths for a great injection of nutrients like gelatin and also improves detoxification and is less stressful for the body to break down.

Have plenty Vitamin C. I sometimes take up to 8000mg per day. It is a water soluble Vitamin and therefore if you have too much it will be excreted. If you have a loose bowl cut back a 1000mg.

Lastly a great supplement to get is organic oregano oil. This works wonders for the respiratory tract in fighting infection and keeping it ‘clean’.

Sleep is also vital for the internal organ and endocrine repair systems to recharge. Missing out on hours of sleep can decrease a healthy hormonal environment. Sleep should be from 10pm – 6, 7 or 8am.

March Fitness Challenge

11 March, 2020

Fitness should be fun; it should also give you a challenge to work towards and trying out something new.

The week commencing the 23rd March, we will be holding a fitness challenge for you to participate in. The exact timings of these sessions will be noted on the timetable and will be completely free of charge for anyone participating.

What’s involved:

This is a timed event where you will have to:

1) Use the battleropes for 30 seconds – double arm slams

2) Row 500m

3) Do 10 squats with a barbell @ 50% bodyweight

4) Run 10 times between cones set out in the studio (15metre shuttle run)

5) Do 20 kettlebell swings with 8kg (easy) 12kg (medium) 16kg (hard)

6) Farmers walk 4 times between the same sprint course 12 (easy) 16kg (medium) 20kg (hard)

7) 10 step up onto medium sized box (jump allowed)

8) 10 ball slams (squat pick up and slam)

9) 30 second plank hold (elbows with knees or toes)

What do you get if you do it?

Loads of praise and a big up on social media… we want participating in events like this to be a self motivating challenge to have a go at and try something new.

We will record your time and keep a leader board going (but this will only be for some people’s interest)

Need to recover post challenge? No problem: We got your back! Anyone giving it a go will have a grenade bar or barebells bar on us!

We have been listening – read our actions to your survey feedback here

8 January, 2020

WE ARE LISTENING…

You have asked; here are some things we are going to do..

1) You have asked for shower gels in the toilets

shower gels are now in place in the changing rooms.

2) You have asked us to sort out the sound in the studio

The sound quality is really important to us and we know it impacts your experience. We are have been replacing headset units 1/ month. We also have a new receiver should sound be problematic. We frequently test the sound, and instructor voices can be heard without issue – we sometimes struggle; to replicate the fault. Often, all that is needed is a new battery.

3) You have asked us to sort out the locks/ lockers in the changing rooms (as well as provide larger lockers)

new lock mechanisms are already in place and we understand have been well received. Space is at a premium, so we will be unable to change to 4 tier compartments for a larger sized  lockers.

4) You have suggested the gym floor layout is not otpimal

While some people find the gym floor layout to be difficult, there is no current consensus from our team what a new layout could be.

5) You have asked for new spin bikes / spin bike monitors to be returned.

The monitors were removed at the request of our instructors; they were largely ineffective at giving a reliable readout. The gym has a longer-term plan to replace the spin bikes in the studio.

6)  You have asked for more zumba, combat, circuits, pilates, yoga, spin, boxing, kick-boxing, barre, pump, hiit classes

Our class timetable is near full at peak times. The key drivers of class selection and variety is class attendance figures and instructor availability. The wide demands and requests placed on the gym in this survey require a timetable review. January will see some minor changes to the timetable following attendance review and discussions with our trainers.

We will be re-introducing our traffic light system, so that any classes at risk of being removed or changed will be shown via in gym posters, social media posts as well as the instructor letting you know directly in class.

7) You have asked us to improve the studio space flooring

The studio floor was sanded and re-varnished late in December. We hope you like the new flooring and once again if you missed your usual class, we apologise for it not being on the timetable.

Advice on how to set goals, boost motivation through the year and some tips for success

19 February, 2019

It is all too easy to shoot for the biggest star; however it is important that goals are SMART; Specific, measureable, achievable, realistic, timed. Be realistic in your goal setting and break big goals down into more achievable chunks. There is little point in setting up to fail by saying to yourself “Right, I want to lose a stone in 4 weeks”. Goals are achieved in one simple way – with a plan. Without a plan you can kiss your results goodbye.

Let’s also not ignore adherence. Sticking to something (even when you can’t be bothered!) is often the toughest part. With this in mind, use a diary to schedule in your workouts. Open your diary open every Sunday and plan your week of exercise ahead. It has been proven that if you schedule an event, you are less likely to miss it!

Once you have scheduled exercise into your diary, it is the important to track your workouts by ticking off when you have completed them. Viewing adherence history is critical to keep motivation high and success on the cards.
