The heat and humidity has hit with fury in November! We get to enjoy more daylight, more heat, more energy more fun! With that we’ve got to listen more intently to our bodies as we will dehydrate quicker and be distracted by the busy holiday season and lifestyle of late nights, food and drinks. If you listen to your body when it whispers you won’t have to hear it scream. Be aware to increase water intake, aim for quality sleep and eat whole foods. This will ensure maximum energy levels, bounce back and real human interactions.
Before we get too carried away with the Christmas season, I’d like to say thank you for all your time energy and support. We’ve had a fun year, let’s finish it off with positive energy!
We can’t wait to see you…
Ruben and the Team

As the temperature goes up in Summer water intake MUST go up also. Optimum cardiovascular performance, metabolism and general health require require optimum water intake.
What to aim for per day…. 1 glass of water per 7 kilograms of bodyweight. I.e. if you weigh 70kg that means you drink 10 glasses (approx. 2.5 litres) of water per day.
Like anything in life, the more you focus on something the better it gets (and the less you focus on something the quicker it deteriorates). Bring a little thought and focus to your water intake over the next couple of months, you’ll be amazed how different you feel.
Over the course of the year, we have slowly accumulated towels jumpers, jewellery and water bottles.
If you a have lost/left items here please feel free to see us at the reception counter to see if it has been collected.
All lost property not collected by the 10th December will be donated to charity.
It’s amazing how a little more sunshine in the morning and evenings can change our the mood and energy day to day. If you have been making it to the gym throughout cold dark winter days then this is now a breeze! If you dropped off a little during the cold and dark then NOW is the best time to get back on the wagon.
One thing that we @Ruben’s are constantly working on, is creating a long lasting positive habit around exercise. For the next 6 months we have the best opportunity to build momentum and healthy habits and they should carry us through the next winter.
Winter can be a metaphor for change/turmoil in our lives as well. The habit of healthy exercise patterns means that your body/mind can stay healthy during trauma, illness, stress, heartache…
One of the greatest challenges is keeping your health as a high priority. AND if you lose sight for a while, don’t beat yourself up, just get back into it!
The flowers don’t grow without the rain…
We can’t wait to see you…
