Keeping fit is fun on holiday!

Keeping fit is fun on holiday!

28 June 2017

Most of us want to slow down on holiday - but that doesn't mean we can't stay fit! In fact, a short break from the norm can be one of the best times to start a new fitness regime, as it gives you the time you need to get into the fitness groove.

Fit and fun!

The Merton is the ideal hotel in which to begin, or continue, your healthy lifestyle - and the best thing is that you can do whilst having an enormous amount of fun!

Our well-equipped fitness centre is perhaps the most obvious place to go to exercise. It has cardio-vascular and weight-resistant equipment, together with a selection of free weights and a dedicated stretch area.

Fully qualified fitness team

Importantly, particularly for fitness beginners, you're in good hands with our qualified team who will help you set up and use the equipment. If you want advice, they'll put together an exercise programme that will help you achieve your goals during your holiday.

You're also welcome to join our fitness classes. It doesn't matter whether you're experienced or just trying an activity for the first time, our yoga, water aerobics and Zumba sessions are great fun and, of course, suitably hard work!

After all that exercise, you'll love our sauna and steam room, which are designed to help those muscles calm down after an invigorating work out.

Fitness & play in the Aquadome

There is however, more to fitness at the Merton than the fitness centre. The Aquadome and outdoor swimming pool are perfect for getting fit through play, particularly if you're on holiday with your children.

The Aquadome is fully staffed by lifeguards, so you know you're in safe hands. You can use the pools for more serious swimming at quieter times, and when they get busy you can switch your fitness regime to 'fun mode'!

Perhaps not a part of a traditional fitness routine, but definitely worth the experience, the Aquadome's water slide is tremendously exciting, while the Flowrider Surf Wave is a lot trickier than it looks. So don't be shy, make sure you give them a go!

There's no doubt that when you're on holiday, you don't need to put fitness aside. In fact, when you stay at the Merton keeping fit and healthy can become the centrepiece of your vacation.
