British Isles Challenge - Result

Back in July we took on a challenge alongside all of the Spirit clubs in the UK to cycle the distance between each club location (22,974 miles) to raise money for charity, each club had a minimum target contribution of 1,094 miles.

For those who didn’t hear how we got on… We smashed it! A big thank-you to all those who contributed, it was a fantastic effort from all involved to exceed our target distance with 1,150 miles in total.

We ended up with some honourable mentions in the final standings too;

 East Kilbride - 2281.2

 Rugby - 1448

 Ipswich - 1343

 

Best in Donations;

 East Kilbride - £329.83

 Ipswich - £255.50

 

Most Participants;

 East Kilbride - 102

 Norwich North - 96

All money raised was donated to Greenfingers UK our designated charity and a great cause!

Member Questionnaire

It would be greatly appreciated if you could give us 5 minutes of your time to fill out the attached questionnaire so that we can review the club as a whole. All questionnaires are confidential; simply pop them in the comments card box once completed. All feedback is welcomed here at Spirit and it helps us create the best environment and experience possible for you - the members!

Dave Aston’s Kilimanjaro Challenge

An update from Dave: The countdown is truly on! In 30 days I climb to the dizzy heights of the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for British Heart Foundation!

 

Why this Challenge???........ I lost my Step Dad, Don, in 2004 to a heart condition. I was still at a relatively young age to lose a massively influential character in my life and part of my upbringing. I always said I will look to do a massive challenge to remember him, and doing so raise money for a Charity simultaneously. My best friend approached me and asked if I was up for it and honestly I was on the fence, I then opened up the itinerary for the trip just out of interest........  There it was a massive sign, a coincidence maybe, call it what you will but the day I complete this epic adventure and get back down having completed Mount Kilimanjaro it will be the 4th October… The anniversary of Don's death!

 

Why this Charity???....... The most obvious choice under the circumstances described above. British Heart Foundation helped support Don and give him more years with us, it my turn to try and give back!

OTHER

Pre Swim Hygiene-Please think of others

Unless we shower thoroughly before entering the pool there is an increased risk of urine, sweat and faecal matter being introduced to the water. This

can increase the risk of infection as the sanitation can be severely compromised. This will also result in down time, especially with regards to the Spa bath. Therefore, it is essential that all users adhere

to good pre swim hygiene. This not only applies before entering the water for the first time, but after using the sauna and spa bath due to the build up of sweat whilst using these facilities.

 

Please Scan In

Unfortunately the parking tablet does not interface with the scanner. So please could you remember to scan in each time you attend the club as well please.

If you have lost your card, no problem, we can issue you with another one. Thanks!

 

NEWS

Health News

Here’s a look back at some of the interesting headlines from the health industry over the past 2 months.

“10-minute walk a day app to tackle inactivity epidemic” - Health bosses say 45 per cent of over-16s are so sedentary they do not manage the health-boosting ten-minute walk every day.

“'Exercise pill' could potentially help people with heart failure” - Pill that mimics effects of going to the gym could transform lives of heart failure patients.

“Gold could be used to treat cancer, scientists say” - Tiny flecks of gold could be used in the fight against cancer, new research has suggested. Scientists at Edinburgh University have just completed a study which shows the precious metal increased the effectiveness of drugs used to treat lung cancer cells.

“Four cups of coffee a day could slash chance of early death” - Drinking four cups of coffee a day could slash the chance of early death, a major study suggests. Research on 20,000 middle-aged men and women found that those who drank it regularly had mortality rates almost two thirds lower.

“UK families could get money off shopping bills if they hit exercise goals” - Families could be offered discounts on their food shopping, cut-price sports gear and free cinema tickets for hitting exercise targets in a drive to reduce the burden of lifestyle-related illness on the NHS.

“'Buying time' and not just things may increase life satisfaction” - Using money to free-up time is linked to increased happiness - BBC News reports. Researchers surveyed people from a number of developed countries and found those who reported using money to free up time, such as hiring a cleaner, tended to report higher life satisfaction.
