The Gym and Fitness Studio
The gym is typically open from 8am to 8pm every day and use of the equipment is complimentary. With floor-to-ceiling windows, your workouts come with a serious view, too. A new range of classes has been carefully devised to suit every interest and ability, from meditation to high-energy spin classes and everything in between.
The below classes are charged at a small additional charge and can be booked on board:
- Functional training/HIIT – a cardio workout to boost stamina and hone body conditioning
- Tour de Cycle – build metabolic and muscle stamina whilst also improving cardio strength and physical capability, as a curated playlist motivates each beat of the class
- Pure-form yoga – Hatha yoga is a free-flow class that focuses on the breathing whilst moving between and holding postures. Suitable for all levels of fitness, this ancient tradition is built around the concept of a moving meditation
- Pure-form Pilates – based on the principles of breathing, control and precision, this class is particularly good for those looking to lengthen and tone up without the need for a cardiovascular workout
- Mindful programming – connect mind, body and soul with meditation and breathing classes.
