Macdonald Hotels to invest £2.5m in fitness upgrades across portfolio

Independent hotel group Macdonald Hotels and Resorts has revealed plans to spend £2.5m on upgrading the health and wellness clubs across its portfolio.

The overhaul will see 16 Vital Health and Wellbeing Clubs being updated with Life Fitness fitness equipment.

The new kit being introduced at the Vital clubs will include Sparc Trainers for high intensity interval training, SE3 interactive cardio machines, PowerMill Climbers, indoor cycles from the IC6 Myride range and Synrgy stations.

The first property to benefit from the update was the Macdonald Inchrya Hotel & Spa in Falkirk and the other 15 will be completed by the end of February – in order to take advantage of the “January effect”.

Keith Pickard, group director of golf, leisure & spa at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, said: “We know just how important our modern gyms and unique spas are to our guests especially at a time of year when many are on a health kick following the festive season.”
