Courtyard by Marriott Gatwick leisure facilitiesSuperb gym
Being Gatwick's newest airport hotel, the Courtyard by Marriott has a modern gym with all the equipment a budding fitness fan could need. Whether you're someone who finds an evening workout therapeutic, or you like to start the day with a quick session, you can't go wrong at this hotel.
Do you crave cardio?
The Courtyard by Marriott has invested in the latest cardiovascular equipment. And unlike some hotels, all of the equipment is brand new, meaning there's no tired or overused machinery. If you fancy a quick jog or a prolonged run, the gym is fully air conditioned and has two treadmills to make use of. There's also an exercise bike with sensors which can track your heart rate, or if you want to tone both your legs and your arms, there's also a resistance cross trainer. For those of you who feel guilty about taking the lift rather than the stairs, you can clear your conscience by using the step walker machine.
Do you weight train?
If you're focusing on your muscles, the Courtyard by Marriott's gym has a selection of dumbbell weights - large or small. It also has two weight benches where you can use the dumbbells to focus on other parts of your body.
Looking to tone your core?
If your daily routine includes sit-ups, push-ups or stretches, the gym has two fitness mats where you can start or complete your fitness regime. There's also a gym ball which is perfect for those wanting to work on their core. The gym ball can help back strength or back problems and toning of the abdominal areas.
Gym opening/closing times
For the early starters, the gym is open everyday from 7am and closes at 10pm.
