MONITOR THE DIFFERENCE


EVERYONE & EVERYTHING


new yoga venture for dir DiR has spent more than €3m on upgrading its existing clubs, including new kit


DiR, the chain of health clubs in Barcelona, will open its fi rst specialist yoga studio – YogaOne – next month. YogaOne will offer three studios that


can also be combined into one 400sq m studio, to be used for masterclasses led by internationally renowned yoga gurus. Classes will be available in seven different styles of yoga, as well as specialist yoga for kids, partners and pregnant women. In October, DiR will also open a new


club, DiR Tuset, within the same building as YogaOne. Members of YogaOne will receive 10 per cent off membership of the club, and vice versa, but the companies will operate separately, with their own entrances, pricing structure and so on.


The new 4,000sq m club will include


2,000sq m of fi tness encompassing CV, weights and group exercise. Also housed within the fi tness area will be a medical centre focusing on core training and back problems. The club will also offer 2,000sq m of relaxation facilities – a spa, restaurant, water zone comprising hot and cold experiences, and a social area with sofas and WiFi internet access. DiR has also invested more than €3m


over the last few months in its existing 14 clubs and one pilates studio. Every club in the estate has had work done since 2009, including extensions to the clubs, new spas, new paddle courts, new kit and the installation of restaurants.

Wattbike accurately monitors 29 parameters 100 times a second so there’s plenty of data to keep an eye on. And thanks to the Expert software that’s included free with every Wattbike, it’s the ideal platform for group training. Simply connect the bikes together and to a screen and any one of 10 parameters can be displayed for all to see. If the mood takes you, you can even race up to 14 bikes with a visual display.


And outside of the group situation, because Wattbike doesn’t have a fixed crank it’s perfect for individual training as well.


So for less than the price of some other group training solutions, why not look instead at Wattbike. Visit www.wattbike.com to find out how your gym could benefit.
