Hoar Cross Hall has a new gym to match its award-winning hotel and spa. We find out more about the transformation


Hoar Cross Hall in the UK has one of the largest spas in Europe, located within an award-winning hotel that promises state-of-the-art facilities and amenities.

In keeping with its luxurious spa and launch of a new lifestyle membership, The Wellness Club, Hall Cross Hall’s leisure offering includes a varied group fitness and holistic class timetable, outdoor facilities, including tennis courts, a golf driving range and archery field, as well as an innovative Wellness Suite kitted out with the latest Matrix Fitness equipment and a Peloton training zone.

Phil Murphy, MD of Hoar Cross Hall, explains: “Fitness, health and wellness are at the forefront of our guests’ needs and as one of the UKs leading spa destinations, it’s important we keep up with the latest trends and provide top class facilities for our guests and members.

“Our collaboration with Matrix and Peloton has facilitated this beautifully,” he said, “The gym is spacious and meticulously designed to provide each user with a unique experience, tailored to their individual needs.”

A team effort
The fitness development has been supported by consultant James Golden, who was tasked with the job of revamping the facilities in a modern style with an emphasis on mindset, movement and performance.

The Wellness Suite has had a complete facelift and now provides a modern range of cardio and strength equipment from Matrix Fitness, with improved décor and lighting to create a more inspiring gym space.

Hero products include high-performance cardio equipment, advanced strength equipment from its Ultra series and precision-engineered virtual training cycles.

“The overall guest experience has been elevated digitally with connected fitness options and a more sophisticated range of equipment.” Murphy continues. “We instantly felt aligned with Matrix and its values. The approach was exactly what we’d envisioned for Hoar Cross Hall and we were impressed with the equipment, which is of the highest standard while also providing a premium look and feel.”

Nigel Tapping, head of spa and hospitality at Matrix Fitness UK, managed the process and took the project from CAD designs through to completion.

“At Matrix, we aim to be a partner to our customers, not just an equipment supplier. We strive to support the entire design and build, right the way from concept to completion.” Tapping explains. “Premium fitness studios and versatile gym designs are playing an increasingly vital role in the hospitality sector and Hoar Cross Hall now has a gym facility to match the high quality of its hotel and spa facilities.”
