The gym at the Chelsea Health Club & Spa is without doubt one of the most advanced in London.

What this means to you is that you will get the best possible service that will monitor your performance exactly and ensure that you achieve the results you are looking for.
Our gym provides state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, with a wide range of cardio and strength training machines, a Kinesis wall, Vibro Plates, free weights and a suspended outdoor running track. The club is operated by a team of highly skilled Personal Trainers who will prescribe exercise routines for you based on your needs and abilities, regardless of whether or not you are a PT client.
ARTIS is the first fully integrated collection of Cardio, Strength and Functional machines combining seamless design, connectivity, biomechanics and ergonomics for the best state-of-the-art training experience available for you. Not only does it reproduce natural body movements, it also recreates that unique feeling that turns exercise into pure pleasure. The club provides a wide range of ARTIS cardio machines with Treadmills, Synchro & Vario cross trainers, Upright & Recumbent Bikes, Steppers and a Top arm trainer. The cardio gym also has three Concept 2 rowing machines.
All the Artis cardio machines are equipped with UNITY, the new revolutionary open platform. Whilst using the machines you can interact online as if you were using your own tablet, all your online apps and programmes can be there on your screen as soon as you login with your key. You can swipe, scroll, tap and jump from one activity to another making it a truly interactive training experience.
You can log in to UNITY via QR code reading, NFC identification or Technogym Key System devices (TGS). All members are set up on the Mywellness cloud and have a programme created for them. This programme is then accessed when you login each time you enter the gym and it can be viewed online. While you train the TGS key records the training data and then uploads the information onto your Mywellness cloud. The network returns personalised feedback on physiological parameters and training results to you via your mobile device.
All of the Technogym cardio and strength training machines have monitors that the TGS keys login to and so you can record all your training that you do on these machines. On your Mywellness cloud system you can then record the additional training that you do, you can then keep a comprehensive log of all your training both inside and outside of the club.
The ARTIS strength machines have a completely unique design. A rigid shaft transmits weight stack resistance directly to the levers, thus delivering to you an exceptionally fluid feeling. The ergonomic design of the handgrips, which is shaped around the geometry of your hand, evenly distributes the load during push and pull movements. All paddings of the anatomically shaped seats and two-piece backrest are made of special high density foam that adapts anatomically to the shape of your body providing maximum comfort. All settings – buttons, levers, pins and the Visual Flag markers – are bright yellow and easily recognised, so that you can easily set up your personal settings.
The strength & conditioning area of the club has a wide choice of ARTIS and KINESIS machines. There are 8 ARTIS machines, 6 ARTIS KINESIS machines, 4 stretch machines and the OMNIA training station. In this area there are also three Vibro Plate machines and a Concept 2 Ski Erg.
KINESIS is Intuitive Functional Movement. This is easy-to-use equipment combining the benefits of functional strength with the simplicity of more conventional equipment to advance progressively from a guided and easy routine to a more free and natural training experience. The ARTIS functional equipment benefits from ‘Full Gravity Technology’ allowing for the resistance to vary in accordance with the increased range and angle of movement. ‘Full Gravity Technology’ activates complete kinetic chains, rather than individual muscles, permitting integrated, dynamic and tailored movements that align with any training goal.
KINESIS is ideal for those who are new to strength training and those that do not want to train with heavy weights. The club has six modular ARTIS KINESIS machines, a KINESIS wall and a ARTIS KINESIS personal training unit.
OMNIA is a new functional training offer that maximises interaction. OMNIA offers infinite possibilities in all kinds of training modalities – strength, endurance, stability, flexibility, coordination and speed – and will satisfy the widest range of your needs, abilities and aspirations.
OMNIA can be used for its individual training stations, but its best application is as a group exercise class. The PT’s run 15 minute group exercise classes throughout the day and there are currently more than 15 classes a week on the timetable. The PT’s will put you through your paces and ensure that you achieve great results performing functional training in a short time period. This is an excellent addition to your gym and studio training programmes. The classes are a lot of fun and are guaranteed to strengthen your core.
