Atlantis The Palm has reopened the ShuiQi Spa & Fitness Centre following extensive renovations.

The new ShuiQi Spa & Fitness Centre will also be the first venue in the Middle East to feature Technogym’s latest range of gym equipment, Artis.

Atlantis The Palm vice president of spa services Neil Hewerdine said: “We decided to renovate ShuiQi Spa & Fitness Centre with the intention of developing an experience that would exceed the already high expectations of our guests. In order to do this, we ensured we went straight to the top for design and equipment fit out.”

“We are incredibly proud of the complete team effort that has brought this one of a kind facility to reality. Our colleagues at ShuiQi Spa & Fitness are motivated, ready and looking forward to sharing this incredible experience with our guests and members,” he said.

Technogym's Artis range used at the fitness centre comprises a complete cardio line, including treadmill, elliptical, bike and recline, as well as strength pieces and functional stations.

The Artis range offers the latest in sports technology in terms of connectivity, sustainability, design and movement, including a fully integrated platform of interconnected products, services, content and programmes that allow ShuiQi Spa and Fitness staff to manage guests’ wellness lifestyles both in and out of the Fitness Centre.

Two zones focus on functional training, including Omnia, a group functional training space, which is also a new concept to Dubai, and a ‘Kinesis’ zone, which incorporates functional equipment that activates the body's complete kinetic chain, rather than individual muscles. The remaining zones cover cardio, strength, flexibility and free weights.

Atlantis The Palm president and managing director Serge Zaalof said: “At Atlantis, our aim is to blow away our customers. In an effort to ensure we continually strive for perfection and remain at the forefront of technology and trends in the fitness world, we incorporated the boutique feeling of wellness at ShuiQi Spa & Fitness Centre, moving away from the intimidating environment that can be associated with a gym facility."
