Old equipment, echoing music, bring your own toiletries. That’s so yesterday…
I’ve something to tell you. It’s something I’ve lived with for some time and I don’t want you to judge me.
I HATE THE GYM.
Like all of us, time is getting on. I know I need to look after myself to avoid problems later in life. Who wants to look back at summer holiday pictures with utter dread?
I KNOW I NEED TO KEEP FIT.
It’s just that I’ve never found a gym I’ve really liked. It’s not that I don’t have options. Living in the West End of Glasgow there are plenty of city gyms around. I just don’t feel inspired going to them. Sure, there are rows upon rows of weights, machines (as long as they don’t have an out of order sign on them gathering dust) and the obligatory thumping music. Yes, they have facilities to shower, change after my workout. But I’d have to admit, I don’t leave feeling well. I leave with a sense of duty being done, a job ticked off my list. And shouldn’t exercise = a sense of wellness?
So it’s a New Year and I’ve decided that fitness needn’t be a slog. I should, dare I say, ENJOY exercising.
And here’s where Anderston’s best kept secret comes into view.
If I said to you leisure, swimming pool, spa, executive lounge; If I said Hilton, what comes to mind?
Holiday, right? You’d be wrong.
It is in fact all of the benefits that come with a Hilton Glasgow Health and Fitness membership. Hilton Glasgow have just completed a multi-million pound renovation which includes the opening of the stunning Health and Fitness Club. In collaboration with PURE Spa & Beauty, the facilities comprise a state-of-the-art gym with up to the minute Precor equipment. Then what about a few lengths in the stunning 15m swimming pool, before relaxing in the sauna or steam room? Don’t forget if you want to treat yourself there is an incredible range of indulgent treatments provided by PURE Spa & Beauty.
As a member, you can look forward to complimentary refreshments, fresh towel rental and parking. New members will receive a welcome goodie bag and free personalised fitness plan. There are a number of monthly membership and day guest options, tailored to suit all individual tastes.
Hilton Glasgow Health and Fitness Club Manager Amy Lyon said
“Whether it’s your first time or you were a regular member in the past, we cannot wait to welcome you to the newly revamped Health & Fitness Club here at Hilton Glasgow. Our fully air-conditioned gym has all the latest Precor gym equipment and my team of instructors and I are on-hand to help you maximise your workouts.”
And now I’m thinking, this is MY kind of exercise – gym membership, pool, spa – repeat! The Hilton’s sumptuous makeover means that, following that oh-so-sublime workout and swim, you really won’t want to rush home. And with one of the memberships offering Executive Lounge access, why would you? Kick back with a coffee and magazine and bask in that post gym/swim/steam room glow. With your parking covered, there really is no rush.
Keeping healthy shouldn’t be a slog and exercise really should = wellness. At Hilton Glasgow fitness just got reimagined.
