Bannatyne Health Club in Bristol has received a boost to its equipment levels and facilities thanks to extra investment.

The club has installed state of the art equipment on the gym floor following an extensive refurbishment. This includes upgraded CV and resistance equipment at the club, based in Bristol. The club also has an expanded free weights section.

The Bannatyne Group has also invested in a brand new functional area at the health club, which includes Technogym Omnia 8. This is a new functional training system that is designed to maximise members’ interaction. Up to eight people can use the Omnia8 at once, and the system covers all aspects of training including strength, endurance, stability, flexibility, coordination and speed. Improvements have also been made to the CV equipment, which now include interactive televisions with, amongst other key features, access to social media.

Rebecca Mills, General Manager at Bannatyne Health Club Bristol, said: “The new gym floor at Bannatyne Health Club in Bristol is a fantastic addition to the club. The new equipment is among the best available and will help members achieve their fitness and health goals even more effectively.

“The company has developed and improved the gym floor and installed state-of-the-art new equipment to further enhance the range of functional training equipment available to our members.

“Functional training is the way the industry is progressing and focuses on training movement patterns rather than isolation individual muscle groups. The new equipment provides fantastic fat burning workouts and will improve strength, endurance and boost metabolism.

She added: “Bannatyne Health Club in Bristol’s new gym floor is one of the amazing facilities available at the club. Alongside the gym, the club offers a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and a spa pool. With such fantastic new facilities, it’s a great time to join our improved club.”

About Bannatyne Fitness & The Bannatyne Group

Bannatyne Fitness, which is part of the Bannatyne Group, is the UK’s largest independent health club operator. With more than 60 sites across the UK under the Bannatyne’s Health Clubs brand, the company has around 170,000 members and employs in the region of 5,000 people.

The Bannatyne’s Health Clubs chain began in 1997 with the first club on Teesside. The idea was born following a skiing accident after which Chairman Duncan Bannatyne needed regular exercise to recover. He could not find facilities locally and decided to use some of the proceeds from the sale of his previous business, Quality Care Homes plc, to establish the fitness chain.

Bannatyne’s Health Clubs can now be found in towns and cities throughout the UK, with a particularly strong presence near residential areas of large towns. Bannatyne’s places a strong emphasis on wellbeing and exercise forming a central part of living a healthy lifestyle of its members.

A large number of Bannatyne’s Health Clubs also feature a Bannatyne Spa, which offer spacious therapy rooms providing luxurious treatments for men and women including body massage, facials, manicures and hairdressing. There are currently 34 Bannatyne Spa sites across the UK.

In addition to the Bannatyne Fitness, Duncan Bannatyne owns and operates a number of successful businesses as part of the Bannatyne Group including:
