German wellness operator Lanserhof has opened its first UK location at the historic Arts Club in London.
The six-storey luxury health and wellness club – situated on Dover Market Street in Mayfair – has a focus on personalised services and houses a wide range of gym spaces equipped by Technogym, exercise and studio rooms and a full-service spa featuring treatment rooms and a cryotherapy chamber.
Designed by Ingenhoven Architects, the club mixes its fitness and wellbeing offer with a range of medical facilities, such as MRI scanning, cardiovascular screening, body metabolism analysis and two physical therapy labs.
Upon joining, each member will undergo a consultation with two different doctors who will use various tests to assess the member's current state of health – before deciding how to best achieve their physical goals.
"With a special focus on preventive medicine, advanced medical diagnostics and advanced training methods, Lanserhof at The Arts Club enables its members to exercise better, improve their resilience and enrich their lives holistically," Lanserhof said in a statement.
"In addition to the world-class gym and members lounge, members have access to extensive medical offerings and innovative treatments from the world's leading experts in the field.
"With its high-end diagnostics including an MRI, Movement and Spine Lab, the fitness centre with classrooms, consultation rooms, treatment rooms for sports and other injuries, the carefully selected range of healthy eating options and, last but not least, the sought-after cryotherapy treatment chambers, the facility will be state of the art in the UK."
Dr Christian Harisch, CEO of the Lanserhof group, added: "Lanserhof has a long-standing worldwide reputation and is recognised as the world's leading medical resort operator.
"In partnership with The Arts Club, we will help members to lead a healthier, happier and more energetic, longer life."
Ingenhoven, who previously collaborated with Lanserhof to create medical spas in Germany and Austria, is also working on the brand's forthcoming property, which is expected to open in 2020 on the island of Sylt in Germany's Wadden Sea.
