Executive Chef - Chris Wheeler to run the London Marathon carrying a stock pot!

Please Sponsor and Support Head Chef Chris Wheeler as he gears up to run the London Marathon in his Chef Whites carrying a stock pot!
Our Head Chef, Chris Wheeler, will be running the London Marathon on Sunday April 21st. Many of you know Chris, and please find below a personal message from him:

‘In a moment of madness I decided to enter Capital FM's competition to win one of ten special 'Help A Capital Child' charity places to run in the Virgin London Marathon 2013. I was picked out of hundreds of applicants and here I am! Seven years ago I ran the marathon flipping a pancake all the way, so thought this year I’d do it with a stock pot wearing my Chef’s whites!

My aim is to raise £10,000 for Help a Capital Child which supports children and young people affected by abuse, homelessness, disability, poverty and illness in and around London.  I will be running for the Breakfast team, alongside Capital FM presenter, Pandora.

I would be enormously grateful for any donation you are able to make and donations can be made on my charity page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/CapitalFM-ChrisWheeler2

For any donations over £1,500 I would be delighted to cook our 10 Course Taster Menu for 6 people in your own home! (Mutually agreeable date  – Food and Cooking only provided)

Thank you so much in advance for your support!
Best wishes,
Chris'

Please kindly be reminded that club rules state the pool and gym close 15 minutes prior to the club closing in order to allow members time to shower and dress. We ask all members to vacate the building by the time the Club closes (22:00 on weekdays and 20:00 at weekends). For health and safety reasons, we cannot have people remaining in the changing rooms after this time as staff have to check and close down the facilities to ensure that we have not left anyone behind.

Meet The Trainers on Monday 18th March

If you are new to Stoke Park, or have been with us for years.......our Stoke Park Fitness Team invite you to join us in the gym, on Monday 18th March from 7 - 8.30pm to chat about all things fitness and give you ideas of how to get more out of your training routine. As well as having delicious samples of protein shakes for you to try, we will be demonstarting some of the exercises that you were not quite sure about, but would go along way to improving your strength and fitness. No need to make a booking, just turn up where one of the team will be on hand.

Personalised Fitness Programs

As part of your membership all members can book go through our Comprehensive Fitness Assessment to have a tailored fitness programme set for you to help achieve your fitness goals.

Stage 1 - One-to-one meeting with your Trainer

By getting to know you, we can advise you on the best ways to achieve your fitness, weight-loss or relaxation goals. We’ll talk about your goals, lifestyle, health, eating habits and ideal exercise. We will go through and assess your fitness levels, assess any postural or mobility issues you may have.

Stage 2 - Your Personalised Fitness Plan

With the information from your one-to-one, we’ll create a Personalised Fitness Plan especially for you. Your plan is broken down into manageable, realistic steps, to keep you motivated and on target. We’ll make sure it’s achievable and fits into your lifestyle.

Stage 3 - Regular plan refreshers

As you progress, you’ll become fitter, stronger and healthier. You’ll achieve your original goals, and you’ll need to evolve your training programme. We’ll meet with you on an ongoing basis every six to eight weeks to refresh your Personalised Fitness Plan.

In your plan refresher, we’ll review your achievements, update your goals, make any adjustments to help keep you motivated , and make sure you’re exercising correctly and getting the most out of each session.

Through specific body fat measurements and client assessment, Stoke Park’s BioSignature practitioner, Roan Heming will recommend an individualised program of nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle modifications based on your unique BioSignature.

Member Testamonial for our Personal Trainer - Joseph

Like many others, my original intentions were to lose a little weight and get fitter, or in my case fitter for my cycling.  I am no stranger to the gym, indeed have been regularly attending for 38 years (I am now 55).  However, until I started with you I have never had professional instruction.  It was a real eye-opener as I realised I had been using poor technique and a non-balanced approach to my training.  For example, I have had back problems for a long time and with this in mind you started building my core strength and I am pleased to report my back feels much better than it has done for a very long time.   

Added to this, the weight/fat has fallen off me and for the first time in 25 years I have not got the little belly I always sported.   

Although it has been a somewhat strenuous, and at times, a painful process the results I feel were worth it.  Now that I have ‘the bug’ I intend to carry on.

Your infectious laughter and positive attitude is a credit to the club.

Thanks again

Gordon Pate, BDS

Mizuno DNA Fitting goes from strength to strength -  Since it's launch in January the new Mizuno DNA System in our Swing Studio has proven to be a very popular addition to our club fitting set-up. After a decade of fitting amateurs, Mizuno technicians found that matching golfers to the right shaft can add 10-30 yards to every iron in the bag - as well as improving shot dispersion. Mizuno's Swing DNA system makes it an easy process by selecting the best three iron shaft options from more than 50 possibilities - after just three of your better swings with the shaft optimiser. Using your unique Swing DNA (head speed, tempo, toe down, kick angle and release factor), Mizuno's software recommends the best three shafts to test and a customised combination of hybrids, irons and wedges. Please contact the Golf Team on 01753 717184 for more details or to book an appointment.
