Brighton & Newhaven Gym Updates

Hope you guys are all ready for the big day fast approaching! With this comes a very busy time
of year for us in the gym to make sure we keep improving for you guys! We have undergone a
few changes over the last month or so and will have a few more going into the new year, so
here is an update from us.

Brighton Gym Updates

Paint Job:

So firstly if you haven’t noticed it already where have you been! Over the last few weeks we
have had the painters in doing a fantastic job the whole way round the club. We have gone for
full grey walls and yellow features which we think looks awesome, with the lights on it really
gives a great effect day and night!

With the new coat of paint comes our new PT Members
wall. The spray paint was done by the great Aroe MSK, Brighton graffiti legend, who is also
responsible for the big ‘RESULTS NOT EXCUSES’ at both Portslade and Newhaven.

Revamped Changing Facilities:

Next on the list of things to be re-done around here for you guys will be both of our changing
rooms going under some re-modelling. The women’s changing rooms will be getting a new paint
job and a raft of improvements such as retiling, a larger wash basin and a bunch of other stuff to
complete the space. The men’s changing room will get a new paint job and the shower area will
be completely refurbed with 4 shower cubicles installed so there’s a bit more privacy when you
shower!

New Upholstery:

As you guys know we always do our best to keep all the gym equipment looking fresh at all
times, and a few days ago on the 19th December we re-upholstered all pads, benches and all
the strength kit that required replacing or repairing.

Boxing Canvas:

With all the other new bits we are doing around the gym we only saw fit for some new additions
in the combat area also. Apart from the completely remodelled platforms for Olympic lifting and
our powerlifters, we recently replaced the canvas in the boxing ring, replacing the tear in the
floor and it has given it a whole new lease of life and it's looking fresh!


 

NEWHAVEN GYM UPDATE

We have undergone a few changes over the last month at Newhaven. Here's an update from us.

CLASS TIMETABLE:

As the club starts to grow and we start to really hit our stride, the new year bring some
awesome new classes to the timetable…

You may have already noticed Spinning and Pilates have just been added in the last month or so and are going so well we are upping the frequency of these classes so we can deliver on the demand that you guys are asking for!

Another class we will be adding is our newest addition ‘MetCon Fit’ which is going to be taught by our own Rob Nitman - this class has proved to be very popular at our Brighton gym. Get ready for barbells, medicine balls, gymnastics and bodyweight movements. This fun, healthy competition will challenge your heart, lungs and muscles whilst getting you in peak physical condition. It really is one not to be missed!!


Brighton & Newhaven

Here's some more information that applies to both gyms.

Merchandise:

At reception you may have noticed we have launched our new UG kit for the winter months.
This has been released in seasonal colours with a new logo and some new items we haven’t
stocked before such as trucker caps, long sleeve muscle fit tees and gym bags. As well as all
the new styles, we also have a restock on some previous favourites like zip hoodies, beanies,
fitted women’s tees and vests. All available now to buy at reception while stocks last and it all
looks GREAT!

FitSense:

You will now all mostly be aware of and using our new club app ‘FitSense’. This is free to
download from your Appstore and will become a huge part of your memberships going forward.

You will have seen already that we have gotten rid of the temperamental fingerprint entry
system and replaced it with a QR code scanner. A new QR code will be generated each time
you check in which you can access through your app when you log in. This will be a lot more
reliable and accurate once it has been fully applied to all members and will make everything
smoother and easier for all of us checking in each time!

As well as the check ins, the app can be used for so much more… All of the club information is
stored at a fingers touch. There is also a feedback button - any comments you leave will be sent
directly to us.

Which leads to the final feature we will be utilising on the app, this is our new class booking
system. Once you are registered to the relevant membership, you will be able to book and
manage your classes through the app. This system will be fully live and will update with
cancellations and waiting list notifications.

Please make sure you keep your app up to date at all times from your Appstore, we are still
improving and developing, making small changes as we go to make sure we have the best
platform for everyone! Keep updated to get most out of your app.

Brighton Members Forum:

Lastly, this is something that has been around for a while but we use often when updating you
guys with quick bits of information or we can use it is a platform for any in-house goings on and
feedback amongst you. This is a closed group on Facebook and can be accessed by request
only. If you are a member please request to be added to the group ‘Underground Gym Members Forum’ and we will double check your information and accept you into the group!
