LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--David Lloyd Leisure (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/) is investing £3.4 million in its Chigwell club (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/club-finder/chigwell) as part of a major investment programme to continue providing members with unrivalled facilities to achieve their health and fitness goals.

“We are very excited to be able to offer the Chigwell community these stunning new facilities for the whole family, which will support them in their health and fitness goals as well as providing a superb environment in which to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life.”
As part of the ambitious project at the club in Roding Lane, Buckhurst Hill, Europe’s leading health, sports and leisure group is installing a new DL Kids (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/at-david-lloyd/families/family-fun) facility - comprising two multi-purpose activity rooms and a large soft play area – to provide children aged 0-11 years with an extensive range of programmes specifically designed to complement the way they learn in pre-school and school time.
Activities include arts and crafts, creative play, hundreds of types of games and sports coaching, as well as birthday parties (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/at-david-lloyd/families/parties-and-events), after-school clubs and DL Kids Holiday Active programmes running during the school holidays.
One of the main new features will be a wet spa facility (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/at-david-lloyd/relax/spa-and-beauty), including a spa pool, plunge pool, sauna, steam rooms and relaxation area, plus an outdoor spa garden providing the ultimate haven for unwinding and de-stressing. And there will be free spa access for all existing members and adults who join the club before August 31, 2014!*
Members will also be able to unwind, work or enjoy a meal in the modern, stylish and relaxing surroundings of the new bespoke DLicious cafebar (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/at-david-lloyd/relax/dlicious-cafebar) - including an adult-only seating area - which offers the whole family a great range of healthy options from the award-winning menu** integrating David Lloyd Leisure’s approach to eating with its exercise expertise.
There will be a brand new gym (http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/at-david-lloyd/gym/exercise) offering the latest in gym equipment and innovation, a functional training zone, three exercise studios for high impact, mind and body, and spin classes, as well as two physiotherapy rooms.

Work on the Chigwell scheme, the most ambitious club investment by David Lloyd Leisure as part of a wider £50m facilities investment programme across its estate, began in April and is being undertaken in three phases, with completion due early autumn.
David Lloyd Chigwell general manager Gail Sainsbury said: “We are very excited to be able to offer the Chigwell community these stunning new facilities for the whole family, which will support them in their health and fitness goals as well as providing a superb environment in which to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life.
“There will be something special for everyone to enjoy; children will love the new DL Kids area that has been created just for them to have fun and get active, the spa and spa garden will be the perfect retreat for those seeking down-time, the gym and exercise studios will provide a truly innovative environment for all fitness fans, and there will be a warm welcome in the DLicious cafebar for everyone who has worked up a healthy appetite, wants to relax or catch up with friends and business.
