Employee & Member of the Month: October 2022

One of our favourite things to do at Parkwood is celebrate YOU, our fabulous members along with our hardworking staff.

This month's Employee of the Month and Member of the Month is a special one!

Our Employee of the Month is our Receptionist, Tony!
And our Member of the Month is his wife, Karen!

Below is Karen's story in her own words:

"I think I have been a member of Parkwood ever since it opened!
I love how friendly and welcoming it is, as well as the variety of exercise it has to offer. Over the years, I have tried many different classes with a number of friends, including Spin, Kettlebells and BodyCombat, but my current favourites are Yoga and FloatFit with Gavin, the Yogi Master!

It can be difficult making time to fit everything in (I'd love it if Yoga on a Sunday was half an hour later.. I'm not good in the mornings!), but there is so much on offer, there is always something you can make time for.

A major attraction is the pool. I have fond memories of swimming whilst pregnant with both of my boys. It is lovely to be able to bring them in for swim sessions now they are older too.

The staff at Parkwood are great - always willing to help and offer advice. The way they all dealt with the various lockdown restrictions was great too. I particularly liked the marquee in the car park, but Tony tells me we can't have it back...!

Tony loves the team spirit and genuinely enjoys working with the Parkwood team. He likes chatting with the members, and especially likes a Wood Bar coffee to help him with the early morning shifts.
He is obviously the King of Spin too... when he manages to turn up!!!"
