Locke in your fitnessDate: 15 Feb 2017
Do you picture Bill Murray on a cross-trainer à la Lost in Translation when you imagine a hotel gym? Well that could be about to change (although we’ll admit that image is pretty hard to erase). Locke is aiming to redefine hotel gym standards.
The Locke Gym has been meticulously designed by our in-house fitness fanatics to help you shake off that hungover fog - induced by a very different type of ‘session’ at Treves and Hyde the night before.
With everything from free weights to kettlebells, pull-up bars to medicine balls, universal weight machines to TRX, you can exercise to your heart’s content – or alternatively to a near cardiac arrest. We’ve even thrown in the old favourites in the shape of traditional bikes and running machines, so if you’re feeling like keeping it old school, you can jump on one and run - or ride - your way to fitness (at least for the few days you’re staying with us…)
Alternatively, our TRX equipment is sure to freshen up your workout. The exercise possibilities are endless with this innovative piece of kit – a new essential for cardio, fitness, building your strength or working on your core.
If you don’t feel like exercising alone, you can book a one-on-one session with one of our fitness trainers. And not forgetting our yoga instructors who are also available for one-on-one sessions if you’re feeling a bit more zen…
Speaking of zen, our Locke Coves offer guests the chance to escape whilst taking in stunning views of East London. The Coves are individual rooms, exclusive to Locke, created for mindfulness or equivalent: meditation, yoga, Pilates or even a personal training session. Locke Coves have been designed to help you unplug from the daily grind, giving your mind and body some much needed alone time. The Coves come at no extra cost, so simply ask a House Host and they will make sure it’s all cove-ered (sorry).
The icing on the cake is that we have partnered with Kinsey to produce a bespoke cosmetics line, the perfect follow-up to a long session at the gym, or to enhance the experience of the Locke Coves. Every Locke suite or studio comes with a complimentary line of Kinsey body care products, so you are guaranteed a post work-out pamper. That’s enough from us for now - we’re off to the Cove for a bit of peace and quiet…
