Over the past few months, we’ve longed to escape. With the whole family in the house, and our homes also becoming our schools and workplaces in many instances, we’ve yearned for a space outside our homes where we can find some peace and tranquility. Those calm moments that help us survive the rest of the craziness have been tricky to come by! Thankfully, all that is about to change.
We’re not just talking, however, about an expensive massage that makes you feel good for 45 minutes before you’re thrown right back into the madness. The newest antidote to chaos offers ongoing benefits to your wellbeing and goes by the name Club W.
What is Club W?
Club W is a club like no other in the Sutherland Shire. From the mind of Tony de Leede, (Founder of wellness lifestyle retreats Gwinganna Gold Coast and Komune Bali and the man who launched Fitness First in Australia), comes Club W, a space for the local community to connect, relax and recharge.
The world-first concept takes a holistic approach to the wellness of its members by providing a variety of designated areas within one space that encompasses mental wellness, fitness, health and beauty and offer productive coworking zones. With so much on offer, it’s hard to know where to start! So we’ve compiled a list of the goals Club W will help you kick!
What can you achieve at Club W?
Find peace and relaxation
Sick of looking at your own grubby-hand-covered walls? You won’t find those at Club W! Instead you’ll have your choice of almost a dozen different ways to relax. Club W’s Zen Rooms are the perfect place to clear your mind, recharge and refresh. These customer-led experiences allow you to curate the experience that will bring you optimal peace and relaxation.
You’ll be in charge of choosing the scent, colour and content that you find the most relaxing before you enjoy meditation, breathing exercise, stretch, yoga, pilates, or on-demand class surrounded by the essential oils and colours that revive you personally!
The fatigued mum will love the range of wellness pods on offer at Club W. Aid your recovery and relaxation with sessions in one of the wellness pods, which aim to improve sleep, alleviate pain, and assist performance. Sink into the 02 Breathing & Meditation Chair as it reclines and elevates your legs and oxygen starts to flow.
As you breathe and relax, the chair gently moves, massages, and warms your entire body whilst guiding you through meditation exercises. Or try the luxurious recovery chair, which will make you feel like you’re in the hands of an experienced masseuse – or several. You can choose from a full body massage or select specific areas to focus on such as arm, foot, back/waist, and neck/shoulders.
Specialty Wellness Sessions
A range of specialty wellness sessions are available to help you feel reinvigorated. They include:
- the Infrared Sauna with Meditation, which uses a unique combination of infrared heat technology and colour light therapy to restore physical and mental balance.
- the Somadome Meditation Pod (Coming Soon), which uses light and binaural beats for meditation that leads to deep relaxation and calm.
- LED Light Facials are a non-invasive treatment that uses therapeutic light energy to help visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles while restoring your skin’s natural health.
Restore your social well-being
Wellness Lounge and SoulBowl Cafe
We’ve all been a bit deprived of social connection lately! Club W’s Wellness Lounge is the ideal place to reconnect with friends or make new ones, without the kids around. Its crisp, clean setting is decked out with calming interiors, inspiring greenery, and beautifully comfortable armchairs for relaxing with friends or on your own. The SoulBowl will be serving Acai bowls, smoothies, and raw treats, which means you can catch up over a barista-made coffee, organic tea or sparkling water and chow down on healthy, nourishing, and delicious foods.
Improve your physical fitness
If you had a few too many takeaway meals and spent a lot less time at the gym during lock-down, you’re not alone! Find your way back to fitness with Club W’s Immersive Studios where you can take part in classes presented by world-class exercise instructors, teaching from beautiful locations across Australia. The small classes allow a maximum of just eight people and can be performed in bite-size durations of 5,10,20 or 30 minutes, so you can squeeze one into your lunch break or whatever other demands on your day you might have.
The Yang studio offers higher intensity exercises that will increase your heart rate such as Fight, Cardio, Dance, Strength & Barre, while the Yin Studio sports calm, gentle, inwardly-focused activities such as Pilates, Yoga, Stretch, Meditation, Breathe & Chi.
The Cardio Zone
The Cardio Zone features the Club W recumbent bikes, which are set up with an LED screen that streams their exclusive wellness education channel, Mind123. The talks given on the channels are presented by world-leading experts and cover 6 different categories including Health, Nutrition, Beauty, Self, Wealth, and Relationships. Now you can learn while you burn!
Restore your productivity
The Coworking Zone
Many of us now work from home, and sometimes it’s great because you can put a load of washing on and then sit down to work again, but other times it’s full of unexpected visitors, kids demanding snacks, and other unhelpful distractions. Club W’s Coworking Zone will put an end to these distractions and help you pry back your productivity.
Their coworking zone includes hot desks, dedicated desks, a boardroom, quiet space, kitchenette, and a wellness pod so you’ll have everything you need to work productively, without interruptions. Plus, all wellness coworking members get full access to the Wellness Lounge and all its inclusions.
Where is Club W and how can I join?
Club W is opening right in the heart of Cronulla, officially on the 1st of November! During their Open Week (25th-31st October) though, you’re invited to tour the facility and try the Wellness Pods for free!
This includes the O2 Breathing and Meditation Chair, Infrared Sauna with Meditation, and LED Light Facial. You can also take part in virtual exercise and movement classes, try the Immersive Studios and specially-designed Zen Rooms.
You won’t want to miss out on their limited-edition Founder Memberships, which allow you to access all this at a heavily reduced price, with memberships starting from just $19.95 per week. You can also purchase packages of sessions/visits and gift cards for friends.
