The Biltmore Hotel has announced the completion of a total renovation of its Fitness Centre, named by Menå‘s Health and Menå‘s Fitness magazines as among the top hotel fitness clubs in America.
The 15,000 sq-ft, state-of-the-art, computerised Fitness Centre at The Biltmore Hotel, which is paired with a newly renovated full-service spa, features more than 100 pieces of modern cardiovascular and weight machines from Cybex International. A separate room houses free weights and classes include everything from Yoga to Power Body Sculpting and Aqua Pilates in the 23,000 sq-ft pool.
The spa is now presenting unique packages, such as Take Me Away and Biltmore Sunshine, together with more than 25 services which include; massages ranging from a traditional Swedish to neuromuscular; hydrotherapy with aroma or seaweed baths; specialised body wraps, including a contouring mud wrap and a detoxifying body wrap; plus a full-service beauty salon for haircare and nail services.
With over 4,500 sq-ft of workout space, the Biltmore Fitness Centre is also one of the largest hotel membership gyms in America. Cybex International - the makers of the Cybex brand in fitness equipment - recently joined with the Biltmore to install its latest line of strength and cardio equipment, including its premium line, Cybex Eagle.
Together with 40 new strength pieces - both selectorised and plate loaded - Biltmore Fitness Centre members and hotel guests can now work out on over twenty cardio machines including treadmills, recumbent bikes, steppers and cross training machines, most of which are equipped with Cardio Theatre screens.
“We are pleased to be affiliated with one of the elite hotel fitness centres and resorts in the country, and for Cybex International to showcase our latest line of equipment to the Biltmore’s members and guests,” said John Aglialoro, chief executive officer of Cybex International, Inc.
Terry Prager, Biltmore Fitness Centre director, predicts members will find the equipment to be extremely user friendly. “These machines are easy to use and great for any type of workout or rehabilitation, even post-op. Cybex is a true leader in its field and we are delighted to be their partner in fitness.”
The Biltmore Fitness Centre, located adjacent to the hotel’s spa, also has male and female saunas, steam rooms and locker rooms. It offers personal training and fitness assessments, and over 60 classes, including Pilates, Power Sculpting, Tai Chi, Hatha Yoga, and Dance Explosion, together with a variety of aquatics courses conducted in the Biltmore’s 700,000-gallon pool, the largest hotel pool in the United States.
