Competition: Win a year-long membership at Crouch End Virgin Active Health Club

To celebrate the re-launch of Crouch End Virgin Active Health Club, we are offering two readers the chance to win a free yearlong membership at the club.

Crouch End has undergone a multimillion pound refurbishment project and has been entirely revamped with brand new state-of-the-art facilities.

You will have the chance to work out in an extended gym floor, which has been updated with revolutionary equipment including The Queenax Training System, an innovative and multi-functional climbing frame on which you can swing, hang, do tractions, and even eliminate or moderate the effect of gravity.

The club has also introduced the Wattbike, which uses technology to analyse every pedal turn, enabling users to perfect their technique and balance, and the Woodway Curve, the world’s first green treadmill, powered by users and providing the closest experience to outdoor running.

Crouch End has over 6,000 class attendees a month who can now go in-door cycling in a dedicated studio which has been extended to double its original size with 41 brand new in door bikes. Whether it’s Burn 360 or twentyfour, you could win the chance to get fit in brand new class studios which have been fully refurbished to provide an enhanced user experience and ambience for members.

After working out on the gym floor or in the class studios, you will also be able to take time out and relax in the club’s new and luxurious spa area, which has a steam room and sauna.

But don’t worry; you will be able to freshen up and get changed in luxury, with the brand new changing rooms which have been fitted with new showers, lockers and luxury changing facilities, including GHD hair straighteners.
