From February 2021, the services of tops:health relocated with Viavi:be centre in Summertown. Viavi:be is an advanced health gym, and the eGym resistance and Cardio-vascular equipment deliver evidence based Clinical Exercise service to improve health outcomes.
What’s a gym membership like at Viavi:be?
You will have unlimited access to both cardiovascular equipment and our amazing eGym equipment which is programmed and tailored just to you – via a clever bit of technology you wear on your wrist when you visit the gym. There is no guessing at which weight to choose or trying to remember how many repetitions. The machines even move around you so that you are in the correct position. We use the very latest equipment to ensure every precious minute is as productive for you as possible. The data is stored, so you can see you own progress, year on year.
You will need an induction before use so make sure you book one of these first and then you’re good to go. You can use the gym for the hour that you are booked in for, this can be either the cardiovascular or the eGYm. The eGym runs as a sequence and will be explained to you on induction but essentially you start at a machine of your choice and move left when it tells you to. There’s no hopping about, just stay in sequence and follow the online commands. You’ll gain a full body workout, stimulating every muscle in your body. Depending how many circuits you complete will be your own personal goal. But two circuits take 30 minutes and twice a week is enough for most.
The infra-red sauna helps support detoxification. The benefit of Far Infra-red Rays, as they are called, is that they are the longest wavelength which penetrates the fat cells causing vasodilation, where the fat cell vibrates to expel toxins. The infra-red sauna can also stimulate your metabolism to aid weight loss, assist with pain relief, increased circulation and skin purification, and is also just a great way to relax after a work-out – a kind of well-earned treat after a job well done.Health & Lifestyle Assessment Specialist Health & Lifestyle Review where your Health Coach will guide and assess exercise & movement, clinical nutrition, healthy aging and energy recovery to help optimise your health and wellbeing.

- Stress resilience and sleep recovery analysis
- Microbiome gut bacterial diversity test
- Food response test
For many years now we have recognised that there is a nutrition gap in the diets of most people. This gap describes the difference between the levels of nutrients the average person, eating a reasonable Western diet is obtaining from food, and those nutrient levels identified by research as being needed for optimal health in the population. The Viavi:be nutrients have been carefully selected to meet most of the requirements identified through many years of measuring and analysing clinical data from the Health Evaluations at its Harley Street centre. Importantly, the supplements are of an unusually high quality and produced in a “bio-effective” form to ensure that a higher proportion of the nutritional element is absorbed than is the case with traditional supplements. ‘Bio-effective form’ means providing nutrients in our supplements that are in the same form as the nutrients occur in food. Nutrients in these forms follow ‘food metabolic pathways’ and will be optimally utilised by the body. Such nutrients differ from the ‘isolate’ petrochemical vitamins and minerals that are provided in the vast majority of supplements sold.
Available supplements to purchase at are Zinc, Omega 3, Multivitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin D, and Magnesium.
