Ramside Hall Hotel installs Speedflex on gym floor

Boutique fitness operator Speedflex has installed its hydraulic machinery at the Ramside Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa in County Durham, UK, as it targets different areas of the market.

The kit has been fitted out on the gym floor at The Spa at Ramside, which is also equipped with cardio and strength kit and has two studios.

The installation comes as Speedflex launches three propositions to different areas of the market - the gym floor, licensed boutique studios and within a big box gym.

Speedflex sessions offer high intensity interval training (HIIT). The machines allow users to perform traditional exercises, such as squats and shoulder press, that generate personalised resistance levels so every individual can train at his or her own level.

Ben Steadman, Speedflex chief operating officer, said: “We are excited to be working with Ramside Spa as part of the rollout of Speedflex on the gym floor.

“Ramside Hall Hotel already has a great health club and spa offering and as such is the perfect choice for our machine. Speedflex will bring something new to the members and encourage those who would not traditionally visit a gym to try something different.”

Rachel Guthrie, fitness manager at The Spa at Ramside, said: “Since installing the machine it has already improved our personal training sessions to help our members achieve their health and fitness goals faster and we look forward to seeing the results as more members use it.”

Speedflex has studios in London, Ireland, Newcastle, Dubai and Dallas.
