Keeping fit has never been easier after the health club at The St Johns Hotel in Solihull underwent a £50,000 makeover as part of a long-term refurbishment programme at the four-star venue.
Changing rooms and poolside facilities have been completely revamped, while new equipment has been installed at the gym in the hotel, which is located on Warwick Road.
And, as part of a new drive to get the people of Solihull fit and healthy, it is also now able to offer personal training sessions after fitness instructor Jon Shaw qualified as a Level 3 personal trainer.
Jon will not only create bespoke and specialist training schedules and work with individuals looking to achieve their fitness goals, he is also looking to launch training bootcamps at the hotel.
Tom Massey, health club manager, said: “We’re very excited about the changes we have introduced at the leisure facility at The St Johns Hotel and the feedback from our members has been very positive indeed.
“It is a real bonus being able to offer members personal training sessions now and believe they – and the planned bootcamp sessions later in the year – will be very popular among those who want to improve their fitness and wellbeing levels in 2014.”
The new-look amenities complement the existing steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi, holistic therapy suite, and nail bar, which hotel guests and members of the health club can use.
The improvements to the hotel’s leisure facilities come as the luxury hotel and conference centre prepares to complete the last phase of the refurbishment of the 180 bedrooms, which is expected to be complete in the spring.
Hotel manager Darren McGhee said: “We are committed to providing first-class facilities at The St Johns Hotel and are very pleased with the refurbishments made to the health club. It’s just the first in a series of improvements we are planning here and we are looking forward to unveiling the changes over the next few months.”
