FIVE MINUTES WITH…
Ollie Thomas gives us some insight in to theclubandspa…
For our first ever ‘Five Minutes With…’, we recently sat down with Ollie Thomas, General Manager at theclubandspa to get to know him a little more, detailing some of the reasons why you should be visiting theclubandspa.
People may not be aware but you’re a relatively new arrival at theclubandspa team. Can you give us a bit more information on your background and what the attraction was of coming to work here at The Cube?
Over the past 20 years I have been involved in the health and fitness industry. I have operated and managed health clubs and spas throughout the Midlands off all varieties and my journey has led me to theclubandspa at the CUBE…..
The attraction to this fantastic facility was a no brainer for me in my next step in my career. Situated in the middle of the amazing city of Birmingham, with state of the art facilities and a huge opportunity to grow as a business.
With a host of classes, variety of gym equipment and relaxation rooms, the facilities are certainly unique. With the venue also being home to a premium spa, is there a treatment that seems to be more popular than others at the moment?
We offer an array of spa treatments from massages, facials and manicures to seaweed wraps to name a few…. Our most popular offering is our Spa day experiences that include use of the club’s facilities, lunch in Bardolino and a selection of treatments. I would say our most popular spa treatment is our signature Elemis facial which is included in our day spa packages but also can be booked for anyone as an individual treatment.
That being said, if there was one thing to set you apart from other gyms and spa facilities in the city, what would it be?
I would have to say that we are a premium establishment with an outstanding offering of facilities, but more importantly anyone that joins as a member, or comes along as a spa guest is treated like a person and not a number.
Our team are skilled in exceptional customer service with a fantastic personal touch that sets us apart from our competition.
theclubandspa is renowned for fantastic offers and initiatives such as Workout Wednesdays and the Dip and Dine package, could you tell us a little more about both of these as well as any other deals available to the public?
Our “Workout Wednesdays” offering is geared around offering all local companies the chance for their employees to use the fitness facilities here at the club free of charge every Wednesday 12-2pm. This gives them the opportunity to try out the facilities before they commit to one of our corporate membership packages.
The “Dip & Dine” offering is open to anyone that would like to pop along to the club and Bardolinos restaurant and have a dip in our pool, enjoy the steam room and saunas, then re-energise with a two course meal and a bottle of wine!
We have many offers out at the moment for joining our club as a member, with No Joining Fee and £100 worth of gifts on joining…. Or a Spa offer for Valentine’s Day!
With the turn of the year comes a whole host of get-fit-quick schemes. theclubandspa is home to an abundance of personal trainers able to cater for a range of needs, what can members expect from them?
Our Personal Trainers are literally the best in the city!
I am not just saying that, as I have worked with hundreds of Personal Trainers throughout my career but you can definitely be assured you will get a great workout, awesome knowledge and the motivation you need to get in shape.
Pop down and book a free taster session to start your 2018 fitness journey with us.
Could you tell us more about the partnership you share with Bardolino and what customers can expect if they book a package which includes both venues?
We have a great relationship with Bardolino….Myself and the General Manager of Bardolino Richard meet more a less every day to touch base on how we can offer the best for both our customers.
With Bardolinos offering not just pizzas and burgers, but healthy power foods such as super food salads and smoothies. The chefs produce everything from scratch, so this lends itself well to offering a great, nutritious offering for my members and other spa guests.
