Every single one of our Matrix cardio machines are controlled via the integrated 15” LCD touch screen interface, inspiring users of all levels with pre-set fitness tests to focus on any aspect of your personal campaign – from fat burn to target heart rate. The Vista Clear Television Technology delivers the most crisp and vibrant digital display available, with over a dozen TV channels including MTV, Sky Sports and BBC News.

Each machine also features it’s own iPod docking station, allowing you to watch films, TV programmes or listen to your favourite tunes stored on your iPod. Furthermore, the Nike+ system allows you save your workout to your iPod and post it to nikeplus.com, for a full analysis of your ongoing fitness campaign.

Virtual Active™ by Matrix

Imagine this…

Ever run through the lush forests of Hawaii? Or hiked the majestic Grand Canyon? Or run Sin City’s infamous strip? Virtual Active at Elevation Health and Fitness allows you to do just this in a revolutionary workout experience that removes you from your daily life.

Virtual Active is a suite of fully interactive, cinema quality, video based cardio workouts installed on all our cardio machines within the gym.

You’ll be engaged on all levels as the workouts include audio soundtracks and ambient soundtracks in addition to stunning video footage. On the treadmill, the incline will even adjust to match the terrain showing in the video. For the cycle, the resistance level will adjust to also match the terrain showing.

Furthermore, all equipment will be speed interactive – when you speed up or slow down the pace, the video playback rate will adjust creating a fully immersed experience.

What greater motivation than to workout in some of the most stunning landscapes and vibrant cities in the world…

The workout will take you miles away from your daily lives and keep you coming back for more helping you to enjoy reaching those fitness goals.

Resistance and Strength

The Elevation gym at Old Thorns Manor Hotel is also fully equipped with a wide range of resistance and strength equipment. Each machine has been designed by biomechanical experts to accurately match fluid, natural movements. The result? Machines that are comfortable, more effective and easier to operate.

And, whilst all the equipment in the gym is extremely intuitive to use, you’ll be given a full instructional session when you join and they’ll always be a member of the gym team on the floor ready to help.

Only the best cutting-edge Matrix G7 series resistance equipment has been installed in the Gym…
