Firstly, a very warm welcome to our Summer newsletter which includes exciting news, introductions and fantastic member success stories that we hope will motivate and inspire your very own wellness story.

I'd like to thank each and everyone of you for supporting a hugely successful Look Good, Feel Better week campaign recently (hopefully Blackpool’s GM, Adam, is no longer covered in our Bannatyne tan!). On a serious note, Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) is the only international cancer support charity that helps women and teenagers manage the visible side effects of cancer treatment. An amazing charity, I hope you will all agree. The grand total is still to be finalised but we estimate somewhere in the region of £50k! A round of applause please!

Our Health Clubs have continued to see continuous investment, with additional refurbishments taking place across the estate to ensure that we provide a 1st class product along with great service to each of our members. Our changing room project is now well underway, as mentioned last year, with refits already complete at Ingleby, Newport and Cardiff.

So far this year, our spa family has certainly grown, increasing already with 2 new site additions - one at our Ingleby Health Club, to coincide with its site refurbishment, and a new Shrewsbury Spa, totalling 47 spa locations. But let’s not stop there, late September will see an increase yet again, jumping to 48 with Belfast’s Spa opening in the Autumn. Talking of pampering, did you know that members receive 20% discount in our spas. Just our little way of saying thank you and to help with your personal quest for wellness.

The start of Summer also welcomed our brand new menu to our café bars. This will be enhanced continuously with specials, allowing us to keep the offering fresh and up-to-date. As the popularity of cashless payments increases, don’t forget that you will receive 10% discount on food via our B:360 wristband purchases.

Ready for round 1? The 2018 news doesn’t stop there. We are all set to deliver a spectacular collaboration with Ricky Hatton, providing our clubs with an exciting group personal training journey. Our Ricky Hatton qualified trainers will run 10-week personal training courses, direct from Hatton's very own boxing academy! A limited number of spaces are available - further information can be found in this newsletter.

Finally, before I sign off…. as the year continues to fly away, our 4 magnificent hotels are all able to offer the perfect retreat for a weekend away, a break with the family or travelling on business. Not only that, 3 of our hotels have just released their Christmas brochures so why not get Christmas wrapped up early this year! Our Bury St Edmunds, Kingsford Park in Colchester and our Humberston Country Club are all also a perfect venue, for festive celebrations.

So please, sit back and enjoy the rest of our newsletter. As always, thank you for your loyalty and continued support.

Justin Musgrove | Chief Executive Officer

Here's a little inspiration from our latest member success stories!

Matthew Tate

Many of our members have inspirational stories to tell and Matthew Tate, a member at our Bury St Edmunds club, has shared his. We’re so proud to have supported Matthew and of his achievements so far! Matthew Tate - Bury St Edmunds

"At the age of 16 I joined the Army and finished training to join the 1st Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment. I was deployed on two tours of Afghanistan - 2009 & 2012. After being hit by a Taliban grenade launcher in 2012 while on patrol in Helmand Province Afghanistan, I was left permanently using a walking stick due to metal from the grenade in my hip.

"This, together with the mild traumatic brain injury and PTSD, meant the gym became a safe haven and a place to release tension lifting weights and training. After joining Bannatyne Bury St Edmunds I was lucky enough to successfully apply for the Invictus games, competing in powerlifting. My trainer at Bannatyne Luke Tomsett progressed me onto a strength programme he designed around my lifestyle and abilities/disabilities. Then with training camps with the Help for Heroes powerlifting team and British Women’s champion powerlifter Charlie Shotton-Gale of Swindon Barbell Club.

"With more training and technical help this allowed me to compete in the British weightlifting spring open winning a silver medal for my first ever competition. Now training further at Bannatyne Bury St Edmunds for the Invictus team trials in April and hopefully to compete in Sydney against the rest of the world representing Team GB."

Yusuf's story

John joined our health club in Hastings in February 2017 with an initial goal to lose weight. With life getting in the way, including work and family commitments, John, like many members, found it difficult to stay focused and motivated to achieve his goal. John - Hastings

In May 2017 he decided to start personal training.

John and his Trainer Daine worked together on building a weekly programme alongside two one-hour sessions a week to fit around what were the barriers to achieving his goal. In just 12 months John lost more than eight stone in weight and completed the Hever Castle Triathlon. (22.5 stone to 14.5 stone)

John said: “Daine changed my outlook on fitness and gave me the discipline to persevere with making the necessary changes to my lifestyle. In addition to making the sessions fun, Daine offered support and counsel outside the gym. He didn't let me give up and would push me in every session, he challenged me to do training I never would have done on my own. The relationship was key - Daine is really personable and focused on developing the trust in attitude and ability.

Daine said: “John has worked incredibly hard over the past year and I am extremely proud of what he has achieved. I knew after my first week with John he was going to do well as he demonstrated the key ingredients to getting any result in life, and that is to work hard and stay consistent! John’s results speak for themselves and he has been an inspiration to the Hastings club and has influenced many others along the way. John’s journey doesn't end here, as he is currently training to complete the following in 2018: Ironman 70.3 in Weymouth. (2km swim 90km bike half marathon) and 7 x Triathlons.”

Anil Soha's story

Louise shares her story to help inspire others to be the best they can and explains how her fitness training helped her at a tough time. Louise Tuson - Membership Sales Advisor – Newport

Two years ago I gave up alcohol & chocolate and started to run – I love the thrill of an event and love the medals and t-shirts.

At the same time my youngest daughter was diagnosed with Crohn’s and coeliac disease after becoming very ill, very quickly. I needed the training as a focus to get me through what was a very tough time. Not long after, my eldest daughter was also diagnosed with coeliac disease.

I started fundraising for Crohn’s & coeliac UK. I signed up and ran 3 half marathons in 2017 with lots of other 10K & 5K events. I even signed up as part of a team of 4 that ran 4k loops for 4 hours.

I have switched charities this year and have signed up in 2018 for the Newport and Swansea half, a night time 10k , Cardiff Bay 10k, ladies race series 10k and Cardiff’s run the streets 5K to raise money for Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff.

I have received a lot of help and encouragement from my colleagues and members at Bannatyne Health Club - Newport which was a huge boost. The club in-body scales were a big help, actually having the results on a graph, seeing that maybe a week when I hadn’t lost weight but being able to see that I had gained muscle and lost body fat kept me feeling positive. I started using my myzone belt and now I won’t train without it – seeing the MEPS adding up during the month, pushes me to do more, I have gone from Iron to GOLD status and only have another 11 months before I will be PLATINUM.

I have lost 4 stone and feel so much better, not so tired and way more energised – I feel able to cope with things better and have a positive outlook – anyone can do it when you set your mind to it!
