Dear Valued Member,
We are delighted to report that work to transform the existing gym and exercise studios, will commence on Sunday 17th November. In this update, we share news of the temporary arrangements for gym facilities and classes during the redevelopment programme.
To cause as little disruption to you as possible, we have carefully assessed historical member usage patterns and are carrying out the upgrade during the least busy period of the year.
While the gym is being re-configured and refitted with new equipment and the studios are expanded, we are introducing temporary arrangements for all gym, holistic, high energy and cycling studio classes.
The redevelopment work will start on Sunday 17th November, with a planned completion date of 16th December.
Temporary arrangements during the upgrade programme:
Gym: Sunday 17th November to Sunday 15th December
The gym will be temporarily re-located to a heated marquee in the Lensbury grounds. There will be a range of cardiovascular, strength and functional equipment available and you will also be able to experience our new ‘self-powered’ equipment. Extra HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) classes will be run by your trainers during the day.
Thanks to our rugby team partners, we are also able to open the rugby weight training facility between 11:00am and 3:00pm at the weekends for the duration of the works.
Gym opening hours stay as normal and the gym team will be on hand to help during all opening hours.
Studio 1 – High Energy Studio: Sunday 17th November to Sunday 15th December
The high energy studio classes will be re-located to a separate section of the heated marquee. We will do our very best to run as many of the existing timetabled classes as possible and will add some additional classes. Access to the temporary high energy studio will be through the marquee.
Studio 2 – Holistic Studio: Sunday 17th November to Sunday 15th December
All holistic classes will be temporarily relocated to the Weirbank Suite, where you can enjoy our tranquil riverside setting. All classes will go ahead as currently scheduled.
Reformer Pilates: Sunday 17th November to Sunday 15th December
Reformer Pilates classes will be temporarily relocated to the Cottage, by the riverside tennis courts. We will share further information about how to access this building nearer the time.
Group Cycling Studio: Saturday 16th November to Sunday 15th December
All studio cycling classes will be temporarily moved to the Activity Room in the current Squash building. We will try our very best to run as many classes as possible, but will not be able to deliver virtual classes during this time. Your membership card will allow you access to the Squash building.
Lockside Changing Facilities and Swimming Pool:
Lockside will remain open for changing and swimming during the upgrade programme.
We appreciate that the programme of works will cause some temporary disruption, but we have aimed to provide you with the very best alternative arrangements.
Again, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support and patience as we work to improve your Lensbury experience.
Please follow the links below to the temporary studio timetable and a site map showing the location of all the facilities.
