Our Fitness Team have been very excited over recent weeks as they’ve seen the gym here at Ragdale extended, and taken delivery of some snazzy new pieces of gym equipment.
And on the strength training front, two adjustable benches have been added, to allow for a wide range of challenging exercises. One of the benches is to replace the Smith machine bench, while the other is an extra for those who want to do dumbbell work for the upper body.
Andjust last week, three sleek looking ascent trainers and two aerodynamically shaped cycles were delivered.
But what does an ascent trainer do? They offer variable incline and adjustable resistance to give a much more engaging workout than a traditional cross trainer. The benefit to any of our guests who’ve made the brave decision to swap their robe for their gym kit, is that they’re likely to get much better results for their buttocks, thighs and core. Additionly, the easy to use touch screen offers a wide range of programmes for all fitness levels, helping the user to stay motivated and on track towards their goals.
The two aerodynamically shaped cycles offer the same wonderful technology as the ascent trainers but have the added benefit of ergonomically designed racing handlebars and a built in three-speed fan!
So there are a few more good reasons to check out the gym if you haven’t already – but we will forgive you if the strenuous walk from the Thermal Spa to the treatment couch has tired you out enough!
