It’s official: it’s SUMMER!  Yes, summer started on 21st June so it’s time to turn off the central heating (guilty) and get ready for what we hope will be a great summer.  Many of us want to tone up a little (or a lot) before we ditch the winter clothes so Sam and the team at our Haverhill branch have joined up with Abbey Croft Leisure Centre in Haverhill to help you get fit for summer – and forever!

Sam’s been trialling the great Jawbone Up and gave us his overview on the features, functionality and apps that can help you transform not just how you exercise but your nutrition, too.  As Sam explains “You can truly enhance your progression with the Jawbone UP24 fitness tracker.  It can track your steps, calories, activities and sleeping patterns. The Smart Coach feature gives you the motivation and personalized insights you need to reach your goals, no matter where your day takes you. Plus, it gets smarter over time—as Smart Coach gets to know you, insights and tips get better and better. And you will too. It will also aid you in your dietary requirements.  Log your meals and track calories in no time with the UP® barcode scanner, restaurant menu search and food database. Smart Coach helps guide you to healthy habits and gives your meal a Food Score—because there’s more to eating well than just counting calories. Set yourself goals with the ‘Today I will’ feature. As well as being durable, the Jawbone is also splash proof. Whether you have Android and IOS, the UP24 will work from either. This great piece of wearable tech will change the way you think about fitness and it’s available for Click & Collect at Hughes Haverhill store.“

We’re working with Abbey Croft leisure Centre to get even more people involved in sport and exercise and can bring you some offers exclusive to members of the Leisure Centre.  We’ve loaned them two TVs so you can while away the time whilst you whittle away the pounds!  Better still, we’ve got some exclusive deals for members (see leaflet for full terms & conditions):-

  • Hughes 5% discount on products in store for any Abbey Croft Leisure Centre members.
  • Hughes 3 months ½ price Rental on any additional item added to an existing or new rental account, for employees & members.


Why not join today and use your discount to get a Jawbone Up and head down to the leisure centre to put it – and you – through its paces!  Sam recommends the circuit training as it incorporates both aerobic and strength training stations. The instructor will set out the room with a combination of compound and isolated muscle exercises and include various cardio stations to keep the heart pumping.  Classes run weekly and you can find out more information by clicking here.
