We’ve hit the refresh button in our gym

Mar 05, 2019




Stepping into Spring has been a refreshing experience in our Centre for Health and Wellbeing gym as we freshen the decor up.

The gym has a fresh new look after we installed a new hard-wearing floor and spruced up the walls with some vibrant new paint colours.

We don’t just aim to meet your physical fitness needs at the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel.

Mental wellbeing is also a major consideration to help you get back to your best and free of the stresses of day-to-day life.

If, like many people, you are looking to freshen up your fitness and wellbeing, it’s good to remember that physical activity has a positive effect on mental health and wellbeing, helping you have a ‘Healthy Body, Healthy Mind’.

Guest Experience Manager Stephen McGeever said: “The gym has a great, new look to it and is now definitely ‘fit for purpose’.

“Here at the Centre for Health and Wellbeing at the Golden Jubilee Foundation, we take into consideration the stresses your mind and body has been going through, to help bring you back to a level of relaxation, enabling you to focus and perform to the best of your ability in work and in your personal life.”

We have a number of classes to help you de-stress and connect more with your body and mind including Yoga classes on a Monday morning with our own qualified instructor Julie McCann.

Chair Yoga with Julie is also a major success on a Tuesday afternoon, while on Thursday evenings we have the fantastic Laura Langan Riach, the Foundation’s Head of Clinical Governance, doing advanced Ashtanga Yoga.

For more physical exercises we also have boxing classes, circuits, Dance Fit and swimming. Exercising for just half an hour three times a week can lower stress levels, raise mood, lower incidences of depression and anxiety and improve sleep patterns.

Two members of staff – Lauren O’Donnell and Iain Huggan – have also just completed their training to become kettle bell trainers and are now holding classes.

For our staff, more than a dozen have signed up to do 30-minute afternoon sessions, which will be opened up to all staff in the very near future.

And finally, to help people achieve their own fitness goals in 2019, Health and Wellbeing staff are giving nutritional advice and tips to members and visitors to get them heading in the right direction.
