2) Perfect Place To Relax
One of the perks of joining a health & fitness club, like David Lloyd, is the post-workout chill you can enjoy after working out hard in the gym. A large amount of David Lloyd clubs have great spa facilities such as saunas, steam rooms and jacuzzis – theres no better way to end a tiring leg sessions than by relaxing in a jacuzzi.
Swimming is an activity/workout loved by many, it’s a great workout for the whole body or a great exercise to start your fitness journey with. Some people also find this form of exercise relatively relaxing due to the floating and gliding sensation you get when doing lengths, it’s also a great way to dull the world out and put the world to rights in your head by swimming under water. David Lloyd has both indoor and outdoor pools, making it a perfect health club to join if you love swimming, like us.
3) State Of The Art Equipment
It’s so much easier to stay healthy and achieve your goals when you enjoy working out. For some of us, this means updating your workout regularly to keep it challenging and fun. With so much equipment at David Lloyd, it’s hard not to mix up your workouts and try a new workout on the state of the art equipment.
The gym chain is either always introducing new equipment into their gyms or doing a complete gym renovation altogether. They don’t just stop at the gyms either, they have great group workout classes which are always being updated or enhanced for a better workout experience.
Overall the equipment at the gym chain is always the best compared to other gym, whether it’s the newest machines on the market or the best general condition of the equipment.
4) Summer Loving
A massive perk of a David Lloyd club is how perfect the clubs are for summer. With an outdoor pool at many of the clubs, surrounded with sun loungers, David Lloyd is a perfect place to kick back when the suns out and top up your tan.
We have to say that, 2016 was great for us, working by the pool on our next posts. We’re buzzing for more sunny days spent round the pool at David Lloyd this summer.
5) Temporary Office
It’s quite common to see members using David Lloyd as a temporary office, with people using the members areas to catch up on emails or work in the relaxed environments. The members areas are perfect for workings as you can escape the outside world whist enjoying coffee, food and drinks on request. David Lloyd is also a great venue for members to invite guests to have meetings; simply grab a coffee from David Lloyds cafe and work up a deal!
