In 2020, Bicester Hotel and Spa launched a purpose-built fitness and performance facility to create a standalone offering to attract a new demographic.

The club includes a performance gym equipped by Matrix Fitness, an outdoor 500m grass running track, a custom-made 200m swimming lake and an assault course.

Now, to complement this existing premium offering, the team has unveiled a refurbished health club with a modernised aesthetic – and the latest resistance and cardiovascular equipment from Matrix Fitness – to provide an integrated gym floor, three large studios and over 70 instructor-led sessions per week.

The Bicester Health Club
Andrew Foreman, health club manager said: “Our goal is to offer something for everybody. We have so much for members, from state-of-the-art equipment and fantastic trainers in our group classes, to our unique range of facilities. We can cater for anyone’s training needs”.

Matrix Fitness has a longstanding connection with the site, having already been chosen as the supplier for the performance gym – a self-contained project, with the highest quality required when it came to service, support and products.

The new health club includes a full Matrix Fitness connected solution with all-new performance cardio and touch-screen technology; Connexus functional training station; Ultra V2 Strength range with intelligent training consoles and; two dedicated instructor-led, virtual training studios. It also has an indoor cycling room with Matrix Fitness CXP bikes.

Nigel Tapping, head of spa and hospitality at Matrix Fitness UK adds: “The team at Bicester Hotel and Spa has taken a visionary approach, as versatile gym design and modernised, member-centric fitness offerings are playing an increasingly important role in the hospitality sector.

“The modernised health club at Bicester perfectly complements the performance centre, providing a full, wraparound fitness journey for each and every member, no matter their goal or the stage of their fitness journey. The team has been forward-thinking and innovative, and the result is an impressive, cutting-edge facility.”

The Performance Gym includes Magnum half and full racks, Magnum plate-loaded equipment and bespoke track flooring for strength and functional-focused training.

On the second floor, a space has been designed for movement screening, small accessory functional training and one-to-one personal training.
