Louise Day, Champneys Fitness & Wellbeing Director, explains why Technogym were chosen as an equipment partner. “We are excited to open the first Champneys Spa in the North of England,” said Louise. “Known for offering guests total wellbeing during their stay, we wanted the fitness experiences available to guests to be as memorable as our spa and beauty facilities. In keeping with our brand values of quality and luxury, we needed a fitness equipment partner who understands how to deliver an outstanding customer experience. Technogym are leaders in this area and quickly became the only choice for Mottram Hall’s fitness area.”TECHNOGYM TRANSFORMATION CREATES EXCEPTIONAL TRAINING EXPERIENCE
“Mottram Hall’s transformation means it is now one of Cheshire’s most stylish hotels, spa and gym to be seen in” said Louise. “Our choice of designers, suppliers, and partners such as Technogym meet the expectations of our high-profile clientele, and will help us ensure we deliver an outstanding and memorable experience to every guest, whether they are with us for a few hours or visit regularly.”
