As our guests at Strathmore House Apartments, you have free access to Club Continental, the leisure complex at the New Continental Hotel. Just a few minutes’ walk away from Strathmore House Apartments and complete with sauna, steam room, two gyms and a heated indoor swimming pool.
Both at Strathmore House and the New Continental Hotel, we always try to listen. Engaging with our guests, members and friends is what we love most about being an independent family owned portfolio. Being able to talk and listen to feedback, then act upon it is vital for us; and something we strive to do always.
We have spoken to many of our guests and members over recent months and with our Club Manager, Adam at the helm advising and supporting our growth; when it was put to us that we needed an Air Assault Bike – we knew what we had to do!
The Air Assault Bike is an air-based, upright bike with a pair of robust exercise arms. The uniqueness of the air resistance system is that it offers as much resistance as you can handle. The harder you pedal, the greater the resistance. The dual-action design, meanwhile, synchronises your arm and leg movements to simulate your natural motion.
The bike is built to withstand the vigorous use of high intensity interval training; it has rave reviews from fitness enthusiasts, club owners, trainers and physical therapists, the Air Assault Bike is said to be truly the best fan bike available today. Built from the ground up, starting with a frame manufactured from full high-tensile steel that is sealed with a layer of industrial powder coating paint. To ensure durability and moving parts employ sealed cartridge bearings.
The bikes console offers a crisp LCD screen that is packed with features for all users. On-board programming allows you to jump into a workout with minimal fuss, or fully customise your session on the bike. Choose from high intensity intervals, or set a target distance or Watt goals. Integrated messaging to help inspire you keeps the workout fresh and motivating while away from your PT or own Gym.
We know that no two fitness programmes or people are the same and so personalising a piece of equipment to match an individual’s ability and strength is nearly impossible. This bike meets this challenge by ramping up resistance automatically as you push, pull and pedal with greater speed and force. In fact, the Assault can provide a virtually unlimited workout. Keep it mellow and level to target a heart rate range, or jump into a Tabata/high-intensity interval session that reduces you to a quivering heap of sweat.
Whether this is used for your primary tool in your calorie-burning tool kit fused with a balanced diet, or just as part of your workout; this new addition to Club Continental is the burn you need!
Your pass should be in the apartment ready for you; but any problems just let us know!
