Schloss Roxburghe, the luxury five-star resort in the Scottish borders, has chosen Technogym to enhance its wellness offering with a new gym and fitness suite

Published in Health Club Management 2023 issue 8

Set in a 300-acre historic estate, Schloss Roxburghe – which is owned by 12.18 Group and managed by Destination by Hyatt – offers a unique wellness experience on the stunning Scottish borders.

An extension to the main property has expanded the hotel’s leisure offer to include award-winning spa facilities, a heated outdoor pool and premium gym space.

Surrounded by some of the most beautiful nature Britain has to offer, the property has a strong heritage and the new gym needed to contain world-leading facilities, while remaining true to the spirit of the Roxburghe estate.

Adding a new dimension to destination wellness
Schloss Roxburghe is known for its country sports, offering river fishing and outdoor pursuits, miles of stunning walks, and some of the best golfing in Scotland.

The hotel welcomes adventure seekers, multi-generational travel and wellness enthusiasts, as well as keen golfers. The new fitness space needed to cater for them all, as well as members of the local community and hotel staff.

Whilst the gym was envisioned as an indoor facility, it also had to offer training opportunities suitable for outdoor enthusiasts.

“Guests come here for a true escape, with plenty of choices of accommodation, including cottages and self-catering,” explains GM, Bruno De Schuyter. “The new fitness facilities needed to give the same amount of flexibility.”

Technogym was chosen as partner for the project, advising on layout to make best use of the space and equipment to cater for a wide demographic of users.

“Technogym has a wealth of knowledge about the wellness industry and the hospitality sector”, said De Schuyter.

“The team’s insights helped us create a layout that really made the most of a small space, with state-of-the-art equipment that looks incredible.”

Schloss Roxburghe’s fitness suite is a functional space that caters for everyone from golfers to families, to visiting pro rugby teams and the hotel’s resident competitive bodybuilder.

“Technogym helped us choose multi-functional equipment and kit with a small footprint,” said De Schuyter. “The team was able to advise on a product mix and layout that allows our visitors to get an amazing workout with plenty of space, despite the gym being quite small.”

Multi-functional equipment and digital solutions
Because the new gym is used by such a wide range of people, the equipment had to be accessible, user-friendly and appealing to experienced gym users and sports enthusiasts.

Technogym advised on a great range of strength equipment, including the Dual Adjustable Pulley, Skilltools functional training kit, Multipower, and selectorised strength equipment.

The team chose advanced CV kit, including the latest Technogym Excite Live equipment, which access Sessions [virtual classes] from the world’s leading personal trainers, as well as guided routines to suit all users and help them achieve their goals.

The new gym is open around the clock, primarily to support staff wellbeing and Technogym Mywellness helps users plan structured workouts, access guided content and track their progress for a premium training experience.

“We use Mywellness app for our gym inductions and to give people an exciting way to log their workouts and see their improvements,” said De Schuyter. “It’s another way we can support visitors with their wellness goals when they stay with us.”

As part of the partnership, Technogym offers Schloss Roxburghe Technogym Care, a proactive after-sales support package covering maintenance and equipment protection. This gives De Schuyter and the team peace of mind that their gym equipment will meet guest expectations with minimal downtime.

Technogym: a familiar brand for travellers
Schloss Roxburghe has big plans to expand its leisure offer, with the new gym playing a key part. The new functional room will be used for a range of wellness classes, and guided group activities will be held in the gym and outdoors in some of the stunning spaces around the estate.

“We’ve had fantastic feedback on the gym from golfers, members, guests and hotel staff,” said De Schuyter. “With Technogym’s support, we’ve installed a beautiful looking space that really does cater for everyone. It’s our responsibility to offer guests a unique and premium experience, and to take care of staff wellness and morale.”
