Continuing the review series of Gym and Fitness centers in the Udaipur, this week I went to see Penguin Health Club, it is in the basement of Hotel India International, 63 SardarPura. Penguin is owned by Mr. Praveen Jain who is running it from past 9 years.
Penguin Gym is dedicated to an exceptional class of people with some exceptional needs. Till now, I have reviewed many good gyms and health clubs of Udaipur but what makes Penguin special is their extra care for people suffering from different muscular, heart and orthopedic disorders like back pain, slip disck, blood pressure, obesity and joint pain etc.
The main reason of this gym being liked by most of the people in the city is their wide ranges of training facilities and health benefits available here. Cardio Vascular Training, Strength/Resistance Training, Personal Training, Swimming Pool, Spa, Massages, Temporary Lockers, Juice & Nutrition Bar and Sauna Bath which relieves joints pain to a greater extent.
Penguin also offers group exercises like Aerobics, Spinning and Power Yoga all under one roof. Power yoga is an aggressive form of yoga performed in high temperature for faster weight and inch loss with gain of stamina, strength and flexibility. The room designed for aerobics and yoga has a floor which absorbs shocks and jerks thus reducing risk of injury to muscles and participants feel less tired.
This gym has two unique facilities i.e. Core Conditioning and Slimming Gallery. Core Conditioning focuses on development and strengthening of those muscles which are always used by body like shoulders, abdominal muscles expand and contract whenever we breathe in and breathe out; pelvic floor muscles are used while sitting. This group of muscles supports the structure of body and transfers gravity.
Slimming Gallery is an electric modality with controlled current transfer by carbon pad in most fat deposited site. This helps in mobilization of fat from the deposited site. Fat is used as energy. It is like a boon for people who are severely obese, affected by physical limitations or having excessive fat at a particular part of the body.
These features have helped it gain some high profile clients like Mr. M.L. Chauhan ADM City, Mr. Rajendra Goyal Additional S.P. Police, Mr. Ravindra Sandhu, Mr. Ajay Malik, Mr. Mahesh Thakur Deputy Commissioners Income Tax Dept. etc.
Penguin is open 365 days of a year from 5 a.m. in morning to 10 p.m. in night. All the instructors working with this gym have a decent professional background and experience in world of fitness.
