ATF
  • Anytime Fitness the second-largest gym operator with over 165 locations in the UK are showing how much they value their members through a partnership with epoints.
  • Epoints membership gives members of Anytime Fitness exclusively lower prices on trusted online retailers

  • Members are given a 6-month free membership to epoints, without the need to pay the £50 joining fee or £30 per year as a thank you for being a loyal member

  • The exclusive members-only epoints shopping platform offers at least an extra 10% discount at trusted online retailers products even when the retailer is already running sales

November 2019- Anytime Fitness, has announced its partnership with epoints. The scheme is being rolled out across their 165 UK Anytime Fitness gyms with the aim of improving member satisfaction and loyalty among their 178,000 members and counting.

Gabby Macis, national account & partnership manager at Anytime Fitness, said: “Our members are what we come to work for. We believe that doing right by them is what matters and that isn’t restricted to our core business. If we can find innovative ways of adding value, we can continually drive our passion to be at the heart of the community.”

Epoints enables companies to reward their members with access to what would otherwise be a paid-for membership to the exclusive shopping platform, primarily used in major employers such as BUPA as an employee benefit.

In the Employer market Managers can send digital ecards to individuals or departments and can attach the epoints currency to ecards as a reward. epoints can be spent on the widest range of products and experiences in the epoints shop saving employees time and money (minimum 10% lower priced across trusted online retailers).

Through the partnership, each member of Anytime Fitness will be given a free membership to epoints, the shopping platform which offers exclusively lower prices at trusted retailers as well as the ability to collect epoints in a similar way that cashback websites operate. With epoints, members not only enjoy the extra 10% discount on their online shopping at retailers such as John Lewis, Debenhams, Curry’s, Argos, B&Q, Amazon and many more but can also ‘gift’ epoints to friends and family for important occasions such as Birthdays and Christmas.

Gabby Macis, national account & partnership manager at Anytime Fitness, said: “Epoints is such a compelling proposition to our members. To save extra every time they shop online is a great benefit and something our competitors aren’t doing. It also gives us great insight into what appeals to our members which helps shape our marketing and inform other partnerships. In today’s competitive, fast-changing climate, companies can’t afford to be complacent when it comes to member loyalty.”

Matt Norbury, CEO and Founder of Epoints, said: “We are getting lots of traction with epoints, having now issued our 500 millionth point. A recent study by leading research company Global Data said that over the next 5 years epoints will reach 76% of the UK shopping population. We have lots more innovative stuff coming up for epoints members which will continue to benefit both Employers, Membership organisations and retailers.”

Matt concludes: “Working with Anytime Fitness is a fantastic opportunity and one we really look forward to developing. I know that Anytime Fitness prides itself on the excellent levels of service it provides and to do so needs to continue going the extra mile for members. We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Anytime Fitness and look forward to developing our relationship with them further.

How to make the most out of your bath

Chocolatey Easter treats

Chocolatey Easter treats

It’s Easter and we’ve all got far too much chocolate again which begs the question… what to do with it all?

Well luckily we have you covered with these amazing Easter themed puds! These scrumptious Easter treats are perfect for using up all that chocolate whilst getting the kids involved!

Rabbit Cup Cakes

(Or to us grown-ups, carrot cake with an added chocolate glaze that is sure to get the little ones interested.)

By trading butter for vegetable oil, you end up with a really moist and scrummy cake.
These cakes are super easy to make so the kids can get involved.
Makes 10.

  1. Peel and grate 3 medium carrots or, if you’re feeling lazy, throw them in a food processor until finely chopped.
  2. Sieve together 300g plain flour, 400g caster sugar and a tablespoon of baking powder. Add 4 beaten eggs to the mix with 250ml vegetable oil and the carrot. Stir until combined.
  3. Spoon into cupcake cases and bake at 180º C for 30 minutes.
  4. For the chocolate glaze, heat a tablespoon of butter, 250ml milk, 2 tablespoons of honey and 100g chocolate in a saucepan until melted. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
  5. Wait for the cakes to cool and top them with the chocolate mixture. We added little icing carrots we found in the supermarket.

Eggstra Realistic Easter Nests
A twist on the classic rice krispies cake, these Easter nests use shredded wheat to make them look more like a little bird’s nest!
They only take about 5 minutes to make and everyone is bound to love them.

Makes 12.

  1. Crumble 8 large shredded wheats (approx. 180g) into a bowl.
  2. Melt 250g chocolate and 50g butter in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Once melted and smooth, take off the heat and add 3 tbsp golden syrup (this helps them stick together).
  3. Add the shredded wheat and stir. Spoon into cupcake cases, top with mini eggs and leave to cool.

Easy as pie. Well, easier than making a pie, actually…
If you’re in the mood for cooking and baking this Easter weekend, check out our eggciting Easter breakfast ideas. Don’t forget to share photos of your concoctions with us on social media!

Easter egg

Have a cracking Easter breakfast!

Have a cracking Easter breakfast!

Easter egg

Easter’s almost here and everyone knows that you can’t celebrate Easter without eggs. Most people (me included) will be stuffing their faces with chocolate all weekend. I certainly won’t be judging you! If you however don’t fancy eating chcoclate so early in the morning then check out our eggcelent egg recipes for an Easter breakfast… or lunch or dinner.

Egg in the Basket

A favourite dish of Joey Tribbiani’s – “eggs with the bread with the hole in the middle, a la me” – Egg in the Basket is a very simple dish that the kids will love, especially if you use a rabbit shaped cutter in the centre to make it more fun.
Take your slice of bread and cut out part of the centre. Fry one side of the bread in butter until it’s lightly golden and then flip it over. Crack an egg inside the gap and fry until cooked. If you want, you can also fry the cut out shape and use it as a lid. Creative and delish!

Meri Meri Easter Cookie Cutters, Set of 5, £9.00

Eggs Benedict

Nobody’s exactly sure where Eggs Benedict came from, but one story is that Wall Street stock broker Lemuel Benedict went into the Waldorf Hotel one morning in 1894 needing a hangover cure. He asked for “buttered toast, poached eggs, crisp bacon and a hooker of Hollandaise” which was adapted by the maître’d into the dish we know today.
To make Eggs Benedict, lightly grill and butter two halves of an English muffin, top each half with ham (or salmon), a poached egg and add Hollandaise sauce. You won’t regret it!

Eggy Bread

Also known as French toast, Eggy Bread is much older than people think as recipes for pain perdu (lost bread, aka stale bread) date back more than 600 years. Eggy Bread can be sweet or savoury, depending on the batter ingredients and is a popular breakfast dish all over the world.
Mix eggs with a dash of milk and a pinch of salt/cinnamon. Coat slightly stale bread slices in the mixture and fry on both sides. For a savoury snack, serve with ketchup or marmite; if you fancy a sweet dish, top with berries and maple syrup.

Huevos Rancheros

(Personally i think this is more of a evening eggy meal). Huevos Racheros is a popular Mexican dish served on the rural ranches in Mexico, this dish is perfect for a brunch with a bit of spice. It’s also really easy… especially if you take a trip to your nearest supermarket and don’t make the salsa and tortillas from scratch!
Lightly grill (or microwave) a tortilla wrap, top with a fried egg, fried peppers and tomato salsa. If you’re feeling particularly indulgent, add some guacamole, cheese and soured cream.

Spanish Tortilla

A common tapas dish in Spain, the tortilla de patatas was allegedly created during the siege of Bilbao to provide a nutritional meal for the Carlist soldiers.
Fry thin discs of potato in hot oil until they are soft. Pour off most of the oil and cover the fried potato with beaten eggs. Cook until the sides go brown and then place under the grill. Using a plate, flip the tortilla over and finish off the other side under the grill – add cheese if you fancy it.

Refresh your home ready for Spring

Refresh your home ready for Spring

Home updates

Welcome Spring this year by refreshing your home. Finally coat weather turns to cardigan weather, clouds lift, it’s lighter for longer, things are looking up. However the dreaded spring clean had got to be done. You’ve been saying it for months.
If you don’t have any urgent projects, make the most of the approaching long weekends and spring clean your house, move furniture around or just add some fresh new touches.

We’ve picked some of the best products to refresh your home for spring…

Refresh your walls

A lick of paint would be a great way brighten up the dingy downstairs bathroom you’ve been meaning to sort out all winter. However if you haven’t got the time or patience to be finding the perfect shade of duck egg blue, maybe think about adding a new picture or wall hanging to bring new perspective to a room.

Update your bedding

Is there any better feeling than getting into a bed with brand new crispy clean bed sheets? Add a hot new look to your bedroom with a brightly coloured duvet cover partnered with a beautiful throw to match. Instantly turn your bedroom into a spring haven filled with new life.

A pop of colour

Making spring changes to you home doesn’t mean you have to do anything drastic. Maybe a brightly coloured pillow or if your’e looking for something slightly bigger a patterned arm-chair could be a great way to brighten up the corner of a room that’s stuck in the past.

Plant life

Welcome spring into your home with open arms by adding a hint of green into your house. A few stylish plants breath new life into a wintry interior. Artificial plants are not only easy to care for (literally dust your new green friends once a month!), but great for mixing and matching different pots and plant colours. For the more green fingered among us, growing your own plants are a great pastime and fabulous way to decorate your home.

Mirror mirror on the wall

A good way to spread light around living areas is with mirrors. Placing a mirror on a wall will let sunlight bounce around your room without the hassle of adding in a whole new window! Different sized and shaped mirrors will help create unique themes in lots of rooms.

Lighting is everything

Lighting can really make or break a room, its so important. Adding a stand up statement lamp or a delicate table light can jazz up any area of living space. Adding a funky style is great for allowing light to flood into a once dark part of your house.

The smell of spring

Fragrances such a cotton, freshly cut flowers and citrus scents will add the refreshing smell of spring into your home. Who said cosy nights in with candles was just a winter thing!

Brighten up the floor

A stain resistant, hand-woven statement rug really could freshen up your home. Floral or geometric designs are ideal for adding a more modern touch to a living area.

How to make the most out of your bath

How to make the most out of your bath...

Bath time

There’s nothing worse than sitting in shallow, lukewarm water and bath salts lodged in all the wrong places. Getting shampoo in your eyes because of the stupidly small candle you’ve lit on the other side of the bathroom really isn’t a vibe. The perfect bath is anything but spontaneous, it takes a lot of consideration. If you ,like most, you just don’t have the time to be transforming your bathroom into a mini spa, don’t worry, we’ve compiled a list of bath time essentials so you can spend your valuable time relaxing in the tub.

Here’s some pointers to make the most out of your ‘me’ time…

Luminara LED Tealights, Set of 6

Candles

First things first, you’re going to want candles in your bathroom to help you unwind. The dimmed lights will help you turn your bathroom into a dreamy mini oasis, bit much? Okay we know, maybe light one candle just to get you in the mood. If you can’t be trusted with fire hazards maybe try these LED tea lights, they’ll give you the joy of a candle without the fuss.

Megaboom Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker

Waterproof Speaker

Waterproof speakers are great for creating a relaxing mood. We aren’t saying you have to play whale song full volume, but maybe finding a relaxing playlist will help you have some much-needed downtime. The battery life on this UE boom is over 15 hours, however we wouldn’t recommend you staying in the bath for that long!
