This area also includes a shower heaven – a large overhead show and body jets to rinse off between the sauna and the plunge pool.
Relax and refuel in our members lounge and cafe ELEMENTS
IHF Health Club is the only health and fitness club in Christchurch to have a members lounge of this kind. ELEMENTS features a complimentary snack and beverage bar that includes tea and coffee making facilities, and a range of cooled beverages and snacks available 24/7. Members can also order nutritious meals from our ELEMENTS menu, prepared by our chefs.
All members receive two cards from the front desk when you sign up. One is your club access card while the other is for entry into The Crossing after hours (before 6am and after 9pm). Your club access card works on both entry points, at reception and a door located further down the arcade toward the escalators that opens straight into the group fitness lobby.
2 hours free parking
Your membership includes two hours free parking in The Crossing carpark (entrance off Lichfield Street) every time your visit. The Crossing carpark is open from 4.30am to midnight, 7 days. Outside of these hours, members have a swipecard to access The Crossing that will also give your after hours entry to the carpark.
PRAMA group fitness is circuit training that involves LED lighting in the floor for a stimulating and interactive workout experience. In just 45 minutes (+ 15mins of warmup and cool down), speed, strength, mobility, stamina and cognitive function are all combined. We have several PRAMA classes available including ENERGY, STRONG, ATHLETIC and FLOW, and will soon be adding a new class called FIGHT.
IHF Ride uses ICG’s Coach By Color training system, delivers real-time, color-coded bio feedback to the user. Coach By Color has five colored training zones: white, blue, green, yellow and red. These zones can be linked to your WattRate (power) and Functional Threshold Power (FTP), or heart rate and percentage of Heart Rate Max (HR MAX). This creates a fantastic Ride experience and is suitable for all Fitness levels. You can choose from a wide range of 30-45 minute group classes with one of qualified instructors.
We also offer a mixture of yoga classes to suit all fitness levels and wellbeing goals. Our yoga classes are designed to support your mind and body to maximise your energy, recovery and balance.
