Run the New York Marathon at Holmes Place Geneva

Date of publication 26.07.2018

Holmes Place, Geneva’s premium fitness and wellness club, has invested CHF 2 million in its training facilities by acquiring over 100 new top-level machines with the latest technologies. The equipment puts Holmes Place at the forefront in terms of innovation, comfort and performance while meeting its members’ high expectations. The improvements also make it one of the group's leading clubs in Europe.

Fully equipped by premium brand Technogym, Holmes Place Geneva now has nearly a hundred
interconnected machines dedicated to cardiovascular activity and muscle work. Adapted to all types
of training, some selected running and cycling machines even allow you to progress in immersion on
known routes – such as part of the New York Marathon or a stage of the Tour de France – individually
or in a team mode. Those who love a good challenge can also join or start an interactive rowing race
with the participants’ evolution projected live on a giant screen.

The new facilities have also allowed the club to redesign its venue by giving more space to “circuit”
training, a trendy practice consisting on repeating a series of varied high-intensity exercises. It is in the
same context that “Xpress classes” – fast and supervised training sessions – are offered every hour, in
addition to the numerous other themed group classes.

Each member can consult the results of his efforts, at any time, through a multifunction application
that automatically records all progress. The analysis of this data by its user allows a precise follow-up
of the performances in order to optimize training programs.

A Fitness club and a place to get to get the most out of life
”These refurbishments bring the club into a new dimension”, says Blaise Languin, Director at Holmes
Place Switzerland. “Everything has been rethought to reflect the interests and comfort of our members,
we want to offer them the best conditions for their training and relaxation,” he adds, insisting on the
fact that the values of the club are not focused solely on performance but rather on wellbeing and
enjoyment. Indeed, members needing rest can extend their sessions by finding a calm environment at
our terrace, SPA, and business lounge, or by enjoying an energy boost at the “Green Gorillaz” café
which offers healthy dishes and fruit smoothies.
