XS Fitness Newsletter #7 - January 2021
Welcome to 2021!
May this year be a little less crazy than 2020.
Motivation v Routine
January is the best month to re-evaluate your fitness goals. If your gym visits weren't as regular in late 2020 as you'd have liked, then reset now for 2021.
It is said "motivation gets you started, but routine and habits keep you going".
Make your fitness a priority and a calendar entry that is never missed (unless for a very good reason). This forces the habit and routine. We all have said "I won't worry about training today, I'll make it up" Yeah right!
Swiping in at the Entry Door
Members you DO NOT HAVE TO SIGN the COVID register if you have swiped in and out of XS. The access control system tracks this for us. Only visitors and non-members need to sign the register. For this reason, please do not open the door for others.
December Christmas Drinks 2020
Thanks to all members who joined us at the Windsor for a Christmas drink. We had around 35 members attend and it was great to mingle in a non-gym environment with you all.
To all fashion savvy XS members, please check out the latest gym wear from the "New Standard" label. We have samples for you try on and if we don’t have your size in stock, we'll order it for you.
We recently purchased a Defibrillator and it's located on the wall near the front door. Anyone can operate it in case of a heart attack of a fellow member. It talks you through the whole process (yes talks to you).
The first aid box is located on top of the pigeon holes for any general first aid requirements. If you use the last of anything, please write us note so we can restock the box.
Outdoor Training Area Expansion
We all love training outside, (when it's not 38C!) so we have committed funds to expand the area.
Additional turf will be laid along with more trees to "green up the area" further. A second sail shade is to be fitted along with some permanent outdoor training benches. Equipment outside will obviously weather but it's part of the experience (think Venice Beach rusty gear).
XS installed a large 20kW Solar PV system last year, courtesy of Ford & Doonan Solar. With the air con running flat out this summer it is great to see a reduction in power of over 50%. Go solar!
New for 2021
Introducing 7 DAY FREE TRIALS. We are introducing these as we are confident if a prospective member try's XS, they'll buy XS!
Any friends, family or your 'other half" who are considering a gym membership, be sure to tell them about XS 7-day free trials.
Member Referrals - We love referrals and we'll pay you to help us get them.
Any current XS member who refers someone who joins XS will receive 2 weeks free membership.
Not only will you be assisting XS, you'll be helping yourself at the same time.
These DL sized cards will be available soon to members making it simple to refer XS Fitness. Simply write your name on the back where indicated, before handing them out.
Your friend needs to bring the card into XS when they join up and this will ensure you receive your 2 weeks free membership as a thank you.
Personal Trainer anyone?
If you're lacking motivation or just getting a bit bored, then you could do with a PT! Learn new routines, push your own boundaries, set a new fitness goal, then one of our PT’s is what you need.
We have four PT’s at XS to suit you.
Enquire when next at XS.
Some reminders for all members.
- If the back door has the orange strap over the handle, it means the outdoor zone is closed. If you do open the door the alarm will sound and the monitoring centre will begin to make a series of phone calls to the team at XS. Please don’t open the door if it’s clearly not meant to be opened.
- Always swipe yourself in and out of XS. Please don't share your access key with another member as we must track all people in order to comply with government COVID rules.
- Do not open the door for others and only visitors to XS need to sign the COVID register.
- Put your own weights away and back on the rack when finished.
- Lost property-reminder to check the box near the toilets if you've lost something.
We love to hear from all XS members with any idea to improve our Boutique gym. Email us on email@example.com with your suggestions or feedback (good or bad) we strive to always be improving so we truly want this feedback.
