We all treated ourselves to deserved excess during the festive period, but the dawn of a new year offers everybody the chance to make amends and plan for a better lifestyle in 2011.
Ireland’s premier health and fitness group, the Kingfisher Group, is offering people the opportunity to keep fit, lose weight, get in shape, and look forward to a better quality of life in the New Year. Even better, the Kingfisher Group has launched fantastic new membership rates in January 2011, making exercising at a Kingfisher Club more affordable than it has ever been before.
In order to ensure that January’s good intentions don’t go to waste, the Kingfisher Club will host an open day at each of its eight state-of-the-art health and fitness clubs on Thursday January 20 to show what membership at the Kingfisher Club can mean to you in 2011.
What Kingfisher can do for you
The Kingfisher Club is offering members a relief from stress in the New Year and an opportunity to enjoy exercise as a means to losing weight, getting fit, building strength or confidence, and achieving a better quality of life.
Physical activity has been proven to be effective in the management of stress, depression, anxiety, and fatigue. The gym represents an ideal means of facing the New Year with renewed energy and confidence.
Expert fitness personnel are constantly available at each of the Kingfisher Club’s eight centres to motivate and educate members, tailor fitness programmes to suit everyone, and facilitate the achievement of individual goals.
The Kingfisher Club is the ideal setting for members to burn off the pounds gained over the Christmas season. The groups has recently devised a highly successful body makeover programme that allowed participants to get in shape by losing 12 pounds in just six weeks.
The warm and friendly environment of the Kingfisher Club makes the health and fitness centres the perfect place for new members to be introduced to the gym and enjoy the unrivalled facilities that include health suites and swimming pools.
The option of a full physical assessment, conducted by the club’s certified fitness staff, is included in all new membership packages and allows them to devise a programme tailor-made to ensure that everyone fulfils their individual goals.
A range of other programmes and classes designed to suit all levels of fitness is available to all members, including cardio sculpt classes, which simultaneously burn fat and tone muscle, body pump, yoga, and Pilates.
Benefits to Kingfisher members
The benefits of joining The Kingfisher Club are numerous, some of which you may not have considered :
Lose weight: Weight loss will help you build confidence and self esteem as well as reducing the risk of heart disease and stress upon your organs. The programmes help you lose body fat at a healthy rate, giving you energy for daily activity.
Tone up: Feel stronger and live longer by improving your body shape with increased muscle mass and bone density. As you increase your muscle mass, your metabolic rate becomes more efficient at burning body fat.
Meet friends: Members enjoy a social atmosphere as well as great facilities. Regular events, scheduled fitness classes, and on-hand staff ensure that there are always opportunities to meet people in a relaxed environment.
Gain confidence: Exercise goes beyond improving short and long term physical health. A healthy body leads to a healthy mind. Regular exercise enhances mood, performance, the ability to focus, and overall confidence.
Stress management: Studies indicate that physical activity is associated with decreased levels of depression, tension, anxiety, anger, and fatigue. So the higher your stress levels, the more positive the effect of exercise has on your health and wellbeing.
Enjoy exercise: The friendly staff are there to offer you advice and support as you strive to achieve your fitness goals. This will help you to enjoy working out so that you get the most out of your fitness programme from one year to the next.
Learn new skills: If your New Year’s resolution was finally to learn to swim then you can do so with qualified, experienced swimming coaches.
Joe Cosgrove, managing director of the Kingfisher Club, said that the health and fitness clubs are committed to constantly devising new programmes to offer their members.
“We are always introducing new classes and updating our facilities because we strive to remain at the cutting edge of health and fitness and offer our members the very best at affordable prices,” he added. “For 2011 we have completely reviewed our pricing structure to ensure that we continue to be the best value for money membership around. There will be much more to come to interest everybody in the New Year, and we look forward to welcoming everyone down on our open day on January 20.”
The state-of-the-art facilities, expert staff, and contemporary design of the Kingfisher Club are the perfect antidote and a means to ensure that New Year’s resolutions for 2011 are achievable rather than aspirational.
