Matrix Fitness partner with first purpose-built wellness retreat in the uk

The Glass House, in Essex, has been designed from scratch and built by industry experts from the ground up. It’s a visionary retreat, with an all-inclusive approach to detoxing, health and wellness


The concept was the creation of family-run construction company, Jarvis Development Group, which has successfully ventured into the spa and hospitality market with this innovative architectural creation, complemented by eco-friendly solar panels, a ground source heat pump and rain water recycling technology.

Russell Jarvis, from The Glass House comments: “The Glass House began as a passion project for Joy, our mother, who has been visiting wellness retreats for years. Whilst her experiences were always inspiring, she felt there was room for improvement – many sites were a bit pushed for space and had limited facilities.”

“Other retreats are converted or renovated buildings, they have to use the space as best they can and are therefore restricted in their design. Being able to plan The Glass House Wellness Retreat from scratch has allowed us to create an impressive building not only of architectural significance, but also purpose-built to deliver a premium, bespoke retreat experience.”

Nestled in seven acres of countryside just an hour outside of London, facilities include a heated leisure pool, a Cryotherapy chamber, a spa and salt block sauna, eight treatment rooms, a communal lounge and dining area, a large fitness studio and a fully loaded gym.

“The gym is at the core of the Glass House experience.” Russell continues. “With the help of Matrix Fitness, we have created a hyper-versatile fitness suite, offering visitors everything they need for a full body workout. Our entire design has been carefully considered so it was vital that we partnered with an equipment supplier who could give us state-of-the-art equipment, optimised to give our members the best results.”

The install included Matrix 3xe cardio gym equipment with intuitive app-based interfaces and touchscreen displays, Matrix Versa Duels, a range of pin loaded resistance machines that incorporate advanced biomechanics for a natural, smooth, efficient workout experience, and the Matrix Connexus columns were installed in both the gym and in the studio to provide the best in functional training and built-in-storage solutions. The gym also incorporates Matrix Fitness lifestyle graphics on the walls.

Nigel Tapping, head of Sales – Hospitality Sector at Matrix Fitness adds: “The Glass House Wellness Retreat is an exciting tailor-made, eco-friendly build. A project built from concept to completion that has been thought through with the end users experience in mind at every step.

Premium fitness suites and versatile gym designs are playing an increasingly vital role in the spa and hospitality sector and it has been fantastic to collaborate with the Jarvis family to provide a cutting-edge fitness experience to its visitors.”
