Laguna Health & Spa pioneers of the new Matrix 3xe cardio line in UK

Laguna Health & Spa – a unique independent, family-owned Health Club and Spa located in the Park Plaza Hotel – is now officially the first site in the UK to offer its customers the new 3xe line of cardio equipment by Matrix.

Laguna Health & Spa in Cardiff city centre has become the first in the UK to offer the brand new Matrix 3xe gym equipment. The pioneering technology in the new 3xe series completely redefines the exercise experience; the machines come equipped with consoles offering members the brightest screen and the sharpest picture available, through a touchscreen display with FitTouch Technology, which makes interactions easy and effortless, and an intuitive app interface that connects them to stunning entertainment and all their social media favourites.

Through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection, members can catch must-see TV shows, keep up with social media feeds, and even race virtually through mountain trails and dessert dunes using the Virtual Active programme. This first-person, forward-motion video experience is designed to enhance cardio workouts by transporting users to iconic landscapes, turning indoor exercise into an outdoor adventure.

And to make each visit to the gym as smooth and efficient as the last, members can access their own fitness data, social media accounts and favourite apps instantly with an xID single sign on – registration couldn’t be simpler, and their personal preferences will automatically load every time they log in.

The equipment is designed to mimic the body’s true movement and proper fit, with tapered, dual action handlebars that offer contralateral action.

The 3xe consoles will offer Laguna Health & Spa the opportunity to customise their console interface to communicate personally with their users, deliver key messages and engage their members with their social media community, even adding a facility calendar to promote classes, contests, special events and more.

So from exclusive training programs delivered through an optimised app interface designed specifically for fitness, to premium entertainment and beyond, there’s no limit to the ways the 3xe can motivate members at Laguna Health & Spa to keep going and mentor them to reach their goals in exciting new ways.

Matrix UK Hospitality Manager and Account Manager for Laguna Health & Spa, Nigel Tapping, said: “Our relationship with Laguna Health & Spa is a testament to our commitment to providing all-round, fitness solutions suitable for our most discerning customers.

“We know that fitness equipment within a premium setting must look beautiful and needs to inspire as well as provide stunning technology to enable smooth operation and keep users focused on their fitness goals.

“The Matrix 3xe cardio range delivers all this, and more.”

Caroline Sims, Director of Sales and Marketing at Park Plaza Cardiff, said:“We are thrilled to be the first gym in the UK to receive the Matrix 3xe equipment.

“The feedback from our members has been incredible. The up-to-date technology allows us to interact with our members in a way that has never been done before; everything from events to competitions to workout results are shared easily on the consoles and between members and the fitness team.

We strive to be the best gym in Cardiff city centre and couldn’t have asked for better equipment.”
