Team Of The Month: Vamos Campeones

Each month we pick a football “Team of the month” and give them some goodies, which are kindly supplied by our sponsors USN.

The team can be picked for a number of reasons, whether it’s because of their commitment to the Arena leagues, they had an epic fail in their last match or they pulled of an insane bit of Tekkers!

February’s team of the month is Rob Whites’ Vamos Campeones of the Tuesday 5s Premier League. This being their 10th anniversary since registering to play at the Arena seems very fitting to reward a team based upon outstanding contribution both on and off the pitches.

Players such as Seb Miller, Nick Hunger, Stu Latchford, John Nuttall whilst still in their early twenties are regarded as veterans within our leagues. One particular quality of Vamos’ is whether rain or shine, BWFC, Utd games or any other big live game they’ll always fulfill their fixture, always display exemplary sportsmanship albeit a win, loss or draw. The perfect role model of a committed and loyal five-a-side team.

AC Milads

Find Your Fitness In 2017

If 2016 wasn’t your year, let us help you achieve all your fitness goals in 2017.

We’ve incorporated a whole host of brand new activities to make sure that there’s something for everyone. You will truly be able to find your fitness in 2017.

We’ve always aimed to give members more for their money. Market leading studio classes, Boxfit sessions, 1:1 sessions, personalised programmes and sauna and steam are just some of the activities available in your membership. Not content with that we’ve added more!

One of the first activities to launch last November was our “Couch To 5K” running group. The idea behind the group was to support members that had never run before or struggled with running, to get them to a standard where they could complete a 5K run. This culminated in members taking part in the Bolton park run on 17th December. Due to the current wintry conditions the group has now been postponed until early March.

The same will happen with Bootcamp. Although there was great demand for something a bit tougher, the ice cold temperatures seemed to put people off during the trial phase.  Because of this Bootcamp will also return in March 2017.

The walking group also proved very popular. Over 10 members took part in the last walk of 2016. Monthly walks are planned going forward with the first taking place on 19th January 2017.

Boogie Bounce is back as a permanent fixture on our studio timetable. The brand new class has taken the fitness industry by storm over the last few month’s. The class has proved very popular so if you’d like to try it make sure you get yourself booked on in advance.

Boogie Bounce

If getting that six pack you’ve always wanted is at the top of the list for 2017, we have a session just for you…15 Minute Abs! No booking required just make sure that you’re by the stretch zone at 7:45am, 10:45am, 1:15pm or 4:15pm (Mon – Fri) and get ready for a tough core workout.

If you’re struggling with motivation to train by yourself, get down to one of our coffee mornings and you could meet your training partner. Training with someone else helps to keep you on track.

As you can see there are plenty of activities for all. You can see a full list of what’s available as part of your membership here.

If you’d like anymore information on any of our new activities, get in touch by calling 01204 488104. You can also leave us a suggestion about a new activity you would like to see at the Arena via the enquiry form here.
