VirginActive Classic Clubs install Freedom Climber
On Friday 1st June, 2012, Virgin Active opens the doors to its flagship Classic Health Club in the heart of London City, boasting some of the most advanced equipment, new and innovative group exercise classes and outstanding facilities in a spacious, premium setting.
The club, which cost £8 million to design and build, is the biggest launch for Virgin Active, having listened to member feedback to create the ultimate health club boasting more space, more showers, the best fitness equipment and the largest group exercise studios in London. Designed with luxury, space and comfort in mind, Virgin Active Classic Health Club at 200 Aldersgate is so much more than ‘just a gym’.
The large gym floor is home to some of the most cutting-edge equipment including Core-Tex™, a three dimensional balance tool, Freedom Climber, which allows users to climb using a rotating wall and Power Plate® Pro6™, combining vibrations and resistance training. Other innovations include Queenax which combines the new trends for suspension training with functional training, Kinesis Stations and Wattbike.
Due to the success of the Freedom Climber in the functional zone, it has now been installed in 5 VirginActive Health Clubs in and around London.
It is being used in Fast Classes and Personal Training sessions as a stimulating functional training exercise with a variety of non climbing exercises designed to work the upper body and core.
