Another month and another 200+ training sessions in the bag, despite a few members being out of action this month for various reasons!
Member of the month!
Well done to one of our STAR Kids, Gabriel who has won the member challenge this month with the longest bamboo squat hold! (new t-shirts are on their way!)
We also want to give some special shout outs to members Linzi and John, who have trained almost every day and made some impressive progress on the scales! Joy who is brand new to kickboxing and really got stuck in at her first sparring session. This names just a few of the achievements we have seen during June!
And a special mention to member Dos, who was the first trainee to accidentally catch Phu off guard and give him not one but TWO black eyes... (don't worry Phu was fine!)
STAR is proud to be now running regular self-defense workshops and offer private self-defense training options. Open to members and non-members with training prices starting from 250,000vnd! Phu is looking forward to extending this training commercially after the success of our community project with the lovely ladies at HopeBox.
We are running three beginner workshops in July 2020, with full details on the class booking tab of the STAR app/website and on the events page on our Facebook fanpage. Early bird tickets are 250,000vnd or it is 450,000vnd on the day.
We also offer personal self-defense training which might ideal be for private bookings with your staff or maybe a group of friends? We can also deliver self-defense training to teens and on a 1:1 basis. Full details can be found on the booking tab on the STAR app/website.
All training and training workbook materials are available in English and Vietnamese. This is not only a physical class but an educational one too, which we hope many people will be able to learn from.
Next fight club!
June fight club was a great success, with more members giving sparring a go in a safe, controlled and friendly environment. It was fantastic to even some beginners testing out their new skills. The next fight club will be held on Thursday 30th July at 7pm, due to some scheduling clashes we will have to hold it on a Thursday rather than the usual Friday session, we hope this works for everyone!
Booking schedules and your membership plans...
Many members are coming to the end of their membership plans, in particular those who signed up when we first opened with our soft opening offer. You can check the status of your membership plan including how many sessions you have left and how much time is left on the STAR app. To view your current plan details, select the profile icon on your app (in the bottom right corner) and then select my plans to view your current status.
If you are going to run out of time on your membership to use all your sessions, we can roll the sessions over to your newly purchased package which you will need to purchase before the current plan expires. Speak to Gemma directly if you have any concerns.
Sadly Lukasz has left Hanoi and will no longer be working at STAR, we are currently recruiting new trainers, however, it takes time to find really good trainers in Hanoi! This does mean that Phu's schedule will be busier than it already was and we really encourage members to book their sessions in advance via the app. You can book up to one month in advance and if you like to have a regular time/day then you are encouraged to book all your sessions in to avoid disappointment.
Don't forget refer a friend! You can still earn 2 personal training sessions or 2 days added to unlimited group class memberships for every person you refer once they sign up.
