Barons Eden, the luxury hotel and spa group, has invested £150,000 into refurbishing the gym and modernising the fitness offering at its Staffordshire property, Hoar Cross Hall Hotel and Spa. 

As part of the renovations, the guest experience has been optimised and streamlined, with the addition of functional fitness equipment to support new classes, the introduction of durable impact resistant flooring, and a dedicated leisure desk at the spa reception. Further elements of the interior have also been updated to increase space and security as well as enhance the class environment. 

Designed to introduce a more modern approach to group fitness at Hoar Cross Hall, in-line with current trends, a new programme of fitness classes has been developed by renowned master trainer and consultant, James Golden. With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, James has worked with a number of high-profile clients throughout his career, including George Michael and a member of Coldplay. 

Launched at the beginning of May, the new group fitness programme has seen the introduction of a range of classes, including Reformer Pilates, TBT, Tabata and new concept classes exclusive to the Barons Eden group, LIFT and Hybrid. These classes sit alongside the classics of Yoga, Fitness Pilates, and Ride to form a balanced class timetable. 

 Barons Eden Director, Edward Law, said, “This investment has allowed us to modernise our health and fitness offering at Hoar Cross Hall, and we are thrilled to be able to offer our guests a new range of innovative fitness classes. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to James Golden, who has played an integral role in developing our group fitness programme and his experience has been invaluable; he has a wealth of knowledge and expertise and we know our members are going to reap the benefits. 

“We are committed to helping our guests improve their health and wellbeing, and as part of this are always seeking new ways to develop our offering. We are delighted with the outcome of this investment.”
