Walk through the walnut double doors into the fitness arena and the first thing that you will notice is the wonderful barrelled ceiling... which creates a great sense of space.
Members will grab a gym towel, pick up their programme card and fill up at the water fountain. They can get started straight away or discuss their programme with an instructor. We have one of the highest ratios of instructor to member. Their attention and their support of you, their humour and good nature are all part of providing you with a greater sense of wellbeing.
As you'd expect our gym is filled with cutting edge exercise equipment. As well as exercising your body each piece of equipment can feed your mind through an integrated multi media console.
You can take your mind off the exercise by either watching a range of TV programmes, listening to radio and music channels through your own headphones or, indeed, docking your iPod or MP3 player.
The room, like the whole facility, is fully air conditioned and ventilated and has wonderful views over the woodland. The floor underneath the equipment is a combination of walnut and dynamic striped carpet.
It’s important to us that the Arena is a place to catch up with old friends as well as exercise. We’ve chosen the sumptuous Bibendum chairs in red and black leather to encourage you to catch your breath, chat or just enjoy the space.
At the rear of the gym is our Diagnostic suite. It is here that the foundations of your wellbeing are laid.
New Foxhills members are offered a Wellbeing Consultation that is more to do with how they feel; with what’s going on in their lives and what they are looking to achieve, emotionally as well as physically. The inductions are performed by our elite instructors, each with years of experience, and many of whom are qualified coaches.
This is a wonderful space with four metre long glass sliding doors. These can be opened to extend the gym, or closed to offer a more private space.
The most important feature of the holistic studio is the Kinesis wall. This simple system of pulleys has a very profound impact on the body, improving core stability. Great for rehabilitation, improving strength and flexibility for golfers & tennis players, it has been used to great effect by the PGA and Headley Court for injured members of the armed forces.
Note: To gain the full benefit of the Kinesis equipment you will require supervision.
Continue the tour through to our relaxing Spa Garden.
