State-of-the-art 5-star Technogym Gym unveiled at Corinthia Hotel London
“We are delighted to be the first hotel in London to offer the full range of Technogym’s most technologically and scientifically advanced range, ARTIS, and offer our guests a total approach to wellness through cardio equipment, upper and lower body strength equipment, functional tools and free-weights,” says Matthew Dixon, Commercial Director for Corinthia Hotels International.
Hotel guests and ESPA Life members can work out in the expansive gym which is part of the hotel’s flagship ESPA Life at Corinthia spread over four floors. As part of a new ‘Wellness on Demand’ service, they can also choose to work out in the privacy of their own room using a selection of Technogym’s cardio and strength equipment. Guests and members can also keep up to date on their progress both inside and outside the gym anywhere around the world by downloading the Technogym app.
Technology is at the heart of Technogym equipment: the strength equipment at Corinthia London has a mini digital display providing a virtual strength coach to guide you through the movement; treadmill users can attempt some of the world’s most iconic marathon routes, including Rome and New York, where the experience is made even more realistic by the treadmill inkling mirroring the marathon’s actual landscape; and keen runners can replicate their outdoor runs recorded by third party apps and wearable devices such as Strava, Garmin and Polar.
“No other hotel has this variety of our equipment,” says Kieran Tracey, Hospitality Area&Key Account Manager for Technogym. “There is no compromise here as Corinthia is offering all the cardio, strength, functional and stretch equipment that you’d find in any top gym.”
Technogym’s ARTIS range is the result of 30 years of research and offers the ultimate in cutting-edge technology and luxurious design. For example, Technogym’s exercise bikes incorporate Body Print, memory foam-style cushioning for a more comfortable ride; while their treadmills adapt the cushioning to the running style of the user.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Corinthia Hotel London, one of the most luxurious 5* hotels, supplying their guests and members with Technogym’s recently relaunched premium ARTIS line of equipment and services,” says Steve Barton, Managing Director of Technogym UK. “Corinthia is the first London hotel to embrace Technogym’s total approach to Wellness, and we are really looking forward to working closely with them.”
