Virgin Active has evolved in its local offerings for its growing upmarket clientele, The Patriot on Sunday team discovered in a second tour of the place since its launch in December. The lounge provides internet stations where the members or those waiting can just flex their social media muscles or download the eating plans. There are also the club v-max, functional zone, leisure pool, mind body studio, paraplegic change rooms, queenax, ride studio, sauna, strength equipment and the grid and watt bike, all more enhanced from the day it was opened in December last year. They have categories of what someone can do which are Kick which is a unique blend of easy to learn martial arts improving strength, tone and flexibility. There is Shape, which takes body conditioning to an energetic new level using a variety of specialised in studio equipment to train the chest, back, shoulders, legs, arms and core and there is also the Ride which then drives someone’s pedal stroke. Some of the classes available are boot camp, core conditioning, groove, killer abs, move, Pilates, power pump, step, yoga, Zumba and grid. The lap pool is recommended for someone who wants to strengthen their muscles, increase their fitness and tone their body without putting any stress on the joints. “That is why we have 20m and 25m heated indoor lap pools so you can swim whatever the weather,” said a marketing executive. One stunning feature is that all the clients can bring their earphones because all the machines have got screens to watch DSTv and even listen to music.  Anyone with a baby can also come since there provide baby care services for children as young as six months.
