Fitness & Wellbeing Services
A wide range of fitness services are available including personal training, individually tailored workout programmes, injury rehabilitation, swimming lessons and fitness classes. All provision is bespoke to each facility depending on the demand of its members.
With our resource of qualified personal trainers, rehab and massage therapists, swimming pool operatives and maintenance staff, motive8’s residential gym & spa management can fully staff your facility as well as manage the day-to-day running of all the equipment.
Once a new facility has been launched, a motive8 trainer will demonstrate to all new users/residents how to get the most out of the equipment. In addition to educating all gym users, the induction service also helps to fulfil a management company’s health and safety obligations.
Beauty & Spa
We work with Spa brand partners to provide exceptional beauty and spa therapy experiences. We can also provide additional items such as spa products in changing rooms to continue the spa experience, ensuring residents can wind down in comfort during their leisure time.
