If in this Olympic year you are looking for a friendly and relaxed gym, you need look no further than Knowle Grange Health Spa in Frant, near Tunbridge Wells, Kent, where getting fitter is affordable and fun. In addition to a warm natural spring water swimming pool and gym, members can also enjoy the candle lit spa bath and sauna.
New exercise classes and 1 to 1 swimming instruction have been introduced for 2012 including new Ballet Based Pilates classes by former professional Royal Ballet dancer and Rambert trained, Gaby Valenti. These new classes have been designed to sculpt your body and tighten your tummy and can be specifically tailored to smooth your contours and improve your posture. Pilates makes you feel calmer and more focused without breaking into a sweat and at Knowle Grange the self conscious can even book individual classes. Group classes have a maximum of six per class.
To make the most of the natural spring water pool why not enrol in the new one to one swimming lessons designed to improve your swimming stroke and technique. Classes are taken by former triathlete Kenny Hickey, who has trained with Linford Christie.
Get Ski Fit with Pilates. Pilates classes at Knowle Grange are perfect for getting core abdominal muscles strengthened in time for the ski season as it's not just your thighs that feel the burn when you ski as the lower back and stomach can also ache if not effectively strengthened. Skiing from your core actually improves control and balance which in turn improves style and helps you tackle more challenging runs.
Sue Hutchings, who owns and manages Knowle Grange, helps members put a tailored fitness programme into place to achieve fitness and weight goals. This can be achieved by combining swimming, a gym programme or 1 to 1 workouts with a personal trainer.
When your muscles need a little TLC Knowle Grange can offer physiotherapy, deep tissue massage and sports massage from any of the10 strong team of highly trained professionals.
Knowle Grange offers a wonderful range of pamper days and beauty treatments including Rejuvanessence treatments - a wonderfully holistic therapy that gently lifts and releases the facial muscles and helps promote a more youthful appearance.
If you'd like to give any pamper treats, membership or classes as a gift, personalised vouchers are available which come in beautiful gift bags.
