More than 200 years of spa heritage was brought to life again in Malvern when The Malvern Spa was built in 2008, the first spa to be constructed in the town since 1910, offering luxurious accommodation and first-class spa facilities.

Wanting to refurbish the existing fitness suite to match the award-winning spa facilities at The Malvern, General Manager, Lynsey Kettlewell contacted Matrix Fitness for their ideas and support.

“We knew we needed to update our fitness suite but having left the decision until November, we were sure we wouldn’t have it complete for the New Year rush.” Lynsey explains.

“However, from the time we decided to approach Matrix Fitness through to having our new equipment and gym open to the public took just three weeks! Nigel Tapping, our contact at Matrix Fitness, was able to give us a full proposal and quote within a couple of days! The whole project time was an incredible turnaround that is thanks to the efficiency, knowledge and expertise of the Matrix Fitness team. We can’t thank them enough!”

The new fitness suite was installed by December 16th as a 30-plus station gym offering state of the art equipment, including the Matrix Fitness 7xi Cardio range with the Sprint8 programme, ClimbMill, Versa Duel strength equipment, the Magnum Breaker Bench, an S-Drive Performance Trainer and CXP Target Training Cycles in the spin studio.

Lynsey continues: “Not only did Matrix Fitness provide us with a full CAD design and layout of the gym, as well as a rapid turnaround in the equipment required, but they also sourced our flooring and a design team to create a bespoke wall in the gym that showcases the iconic Malvern Hills, an image from a local artist, Jan Sedlacek. Matrix Fitness acted as our one-stop-shop for the entire project, from start to finish.”

The fitness suite renovation has reinforced the fact that The Malvern Spa is the region’s premier health club and has had positive feedback from both members and staff, with membership seeing an uplift in December after the install at a time when this response isn’t normally expected, leaving The Malvern Spa in a fantastic closing position for the year ahead of the January 2020 New Year fitness rush.

Nigel Tapping, Head of Sales – Spa and Hospitality at Matrix Fitness UK adds: “The Malvern Spa is enriched in spa heritage so it was vital for us that we help them design and create a fitness suite to match their other award-winning facilities.

Premium fitness suites and versatile gym designs are playing an increasingly vital role in the spa and hospitality sector and it has been fantastic to collaborate with Lynsey and the team at The Malvern to provide a cutting-edge fitness experience to its visitors and ensure the spa remains the premium facility in the area.”

The Malvern Spa also boasts an exercise studio, a unique, 20 metre indoor-outdoor hydrotherapy pool with massage stations and hydrotherapy beds, four sense-stimulating heat and water rooms, 33 beautiful en-suite rooms and a newly refurbished restaurant.
