Tower of strength Technogym kits out Towers Health & Racquets Club with state-of-the-art equipment


owers Health & Racquets Club opened in Bedford in March after four years of extensive planning. The multi-million pound development is Bedford’s first premium health and racquets club, comprising an 80-station 500m² gym, 30-station cycle studio, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, squash courts, 20m pool and spa facilities. The gym feels spacious and nonintimidating thanks to thoughtful design, layout and equipment selection. To fit with the overall luxury feel and experience, Club Towers invested in Technogym’s top-of-the-range ARTIS cardio equipment. An icon of Italian design, ARTIS equipment features sleek lines and frameless geometry that further enhances the environment. As with all Technogym equipment, state-of-the-art technology integrated into the ARTIS equipment provides additional motivation and entertainment for members. Members can watch their favourite shows on Netflix and iPlayer, browse the internet or check their social feeds. The new RACES mode on treadmills allows more competitive members to challenge friends in the facility to a race over their preferred distance and location, or to take on iconic marathon routes such as New York or Rome. With the EXCITE CLIMB stepper, health club members can take to the ‘Infinity Stairs’ and climb through 3D virtual environments.

We’ve been very pleased by the member reaction to our new gym, and plan to further enhance and add to it as our member base grows – Matthew Towers, Towers Health & Racquets Club

The new group cycling studio features 30 bike stations
