Fitness Facilities

Our fitness offering is featured in June 2016's issue of Women's Health magazine!  And what's more it's in their list of the Top 5 UK Fitness Retreats!

"Fitness fans of all levels are spoilt for choice thanks to the retreat's first class facilities. Nordic walking, tennis, archery, dance classes and aqua gym are just some of the activities on offer - as well as coaching and training programmes and a fully equipped gym."

Our wide range of impressive facilities and comprehensive class timetable ensure we have something for everyone, whatever your tastes and current fitness level. From the gentle mind-body formats through to the pulsating dance sessions, you're sure to find a theme you'll enjoy at an intensity you can manage.

With the inviting atmosphere of our extensively equipped gymnasium, the cutting edge design of our mood - enhancing studios and well qualified Instructors who are trained to enlighten, educate and motivate, we guarantee to put the fun back into fitness. Whether looking for a kick-start or some unique advice to take the boredom out of your current regime, feel free to talk to the Instructors in the gymnasium, and they will steer you closer to your goals.

If you're looking to run a half marathon, shed some excess baggage before your holiday or simply feel re-energised, we'll ensure you leave with sweat on your brow and a smile on your face.

We have classes in four distinct areas, the exercise pool* (for water classes and the aquagym) Studio One, Studio Two and the beautiful landscape grounds. In addition, fitness enthusiasts can get a great workout by using the gymnasium or taking part in outdoor activities, individually or in groups. For top-class fitness facilities, look no further than Ragdale Hall.
