New Russian chain Encore Fitness to open flagship in Moscow

New Russian fitness chain Encore Fitness will open its flagship club in Moscow this summer. Due to open its doors in July, the 3,900sq m site will immediately become among the largest health clubs in the capital city and includes a large luxury spa.

Spread across two floors, the club will be set in an art deco setting within Moscow’s OKO Tower building and will include eight fitness zones, each based on different trends and innovations.

There’s a cardio theatre with the newest Life Fitness and Hammer Strength equipment; a large functional training zone for group and individual HIIT sessions; a Pilates studio; a group fitness area; a balance studio; and a martial arts zone with a professional boxing ring.

The second floor houses a spacious 25m pool – fitted with a Silvertronix hydro-purification system – and relaxation and hydro-massage areas.

More than 60 different group exercise classes will be also available, including programmes from Les Mills, TRX, mixed martial arts, AntiGravity yoga and theraquatics balance board classes.

The club’s spa has been designed as a major feature and a revenue generator for the club and houses a steamroom, sauna, traditional hammam, snow room, bio-sauna, halotherapy suite, Finnish sauna, fantasy shower, Kneipp treading pool and a lounge zone with Yamaguchi massage chairs.

Encore Fitness was founded by fitness entrepreneur Irina Kutina, who leads the chain as CEO. “Encore Fitness fully reflects the idea of the perfect premium club,” said Kutina. “It’s based on sound infrastructure, a unique design, advanced equipment, trained coaches and branded, international fitness programmes.”
