New £250,000 Technogym launched at Peake Fitness by original founder members from 1999!

Peake Fitness, the health and fitness club at the award-winning, family-owned Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa complex, has just re-opened with its exciting new £250,000 ground breaking Technogym equipment.  This is now the first fully-integrated gym of its kind in the UK!

Kate Charlton Jones and Roger Toone cut the ribbon in Peake Fitness, with Peake Fitness Manager Chris Grimwood (between them),fellow members and staff.

Cutting the ribbon at the launch party on 5th December were two founder members of the club, Kate Charlton Jones and Roger Toone, who joined in 1999 when it originally opened.  Kate remembered, “Seventeen years ago I walked into Peake Fitness for the first time and what took my breath away – and still does – was the view.  You cannot find exercise tedious when the surroundings are so magical - the lake and the trees changing with the seasons are an enormous boost to energy and imagination.  I am very excited about the fabulous new equipment - It will be sure to revitalise our programmes!

Roger said: “I have the pleasure and privilege of being a member of Peake Fitness since 1999. When it opened then we were handed a glass of champagne and a commemorative tee shirt which I still treasure. Peake Fitness has always provided me with a warm and welcoming environment for keeping fit, and I hope to be a member for another 17 years! To compare the gym equipment of 1999 with this amazing Technogym range today is the equivalent of comparing your old land line to your latest mobile – I can’t wait for my new induction!”

Demonstrating the club’s commitment to provide its members with the ultimate in top of the range equipment and the best possible customer experience, Peake Fitness has replaced both its Excite Cardio and Bio Strength Resistance ranges with Technogym’s premium range: ARTIS CARDIO & ARTIS STRENGTH.  The gym has also upgraded its exercise management software solution from the iconic Wellness System to Technogym’s latest digital platform: MY WELLNESS CLOUD which offers limitless solutions to data tracking, exercises and workouts for each of its consumers.

ARTIS, with MY WELLNESS CLOUD, is the world’s first ever fully integrated collection of cardio, strength and functional gymnasium equipment, and Peake Fitness at Stoke by Nayland is the first site in the UK to host this system with Technogym’s latest console UNITY MINI. 

Chris Grimwood, Peake Fitness Club Manager, said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our 17 year long relationship with Technogym UK and believe that this system is by far the most superior, fully integrated equipment on the market – our members are certainly in for a treat!”

Peake Fitness is renowned for providing its members with a unique, welcoming environment and an unrivalled personal service that has resulted in excellent retention levels - much of the expansion over the years has been as a result of word of mouth referrals and recommendations by members. 

The Club also offers an excellent range of complimentary fitness classes as well as use of an 18m indoor pool, sauna, sanarium, Jacuzzi and outdoor sunbathing terrace which enjoys views of stunning Constable Country.  Members also benefit from generous discounts off Spa treatments within the complex as well as food and drink, hotel accommodation and tickets for selected social events.
