A good walk out in the gymÂ was all it took to persuade Obinna and EmekaÂ to move into Sunfit Hotel.Â â€œWe walked out with modern machinesÂ with fitness professionals that we decided to move into the hotel for the weekend,â€ says Emeka.
TheÂ Sunfit health club is, part of the Sunfit hotel, 15 minutes drive from Murtala International Airport, at Amuwo Odofin Residential Scheme, Festac, Lagos.Â Sunfit is also 10 minutes drives to the Apapa Wharf and 30 minutes drive to the beaches of Badagry.
The Sunfit is recognised more for its fitness facilities,Â spas and healing treatments than as a year_round sporting destination. It was with health in mind that the management of the hotelÂ decided to rebuild the interior of the house to promote maximum healing benefits.
â€œWhen we started, it was more of a fitness club, then we had few rooms and the demands for rooms increased.
â€œWe discovered people can actually come here and relax, people were coming to spend weekends here, taking advantage of the fitness facilities we have, so we had to expand by building more rooms and people started coming from everywhere,â€ says Victor Edosomwan, the General Manager.
He said today, Sunfit has world_class fitness that includes a fully equipped gym, a fitness studio, table tennisÂ boards, a lawn tennis court, squash court and indoor and outdoor swimming pools, â€œwe offer regular aerobics class sessions in our fitness studio under the guidanceÂ of qualified instructors.â€
Edosomwan added â€œ in Sunfit Health club, we make it personal, steps are taken to ensure a proper fitness plan for all members, following individual assessment.â€
The Sunfit health club, according to the General manager, is built as a one stop shop for guests and clients, so it is not surprising to see that the spa is enclosed within, â€œwith tranquil ambience and soothing design, Sunfit spas offer a genuine sense of escape. Time disappears and you feel transported far away.
â€œ In the hands of skilled spa therapists, you experience results_oriented massage and body treatments â€“ releasing your muscles and leaving your skin soft and radiant. Sunfit spas also invite you to refresh in the indoor swimming pool, invigorate in the fitness centre, and unwind in the sauna and steam room.â€
Edosonmwan disclosed that to cater for the increase in patronage and those wanting to stay o after work out sessions at the gym and spas they decided to add extra rooms, â€œplans were drawn up by architects specialising in â€œhealthyâ€ buildings andÂ works ensued.
