Metropolitan expands in Spain

Spanish health club chain Metropolitan has opened a new 4m euro (US$6.3, £3.2m) sports, health and wellness centre in the city of Vigo in the Spanish region of Galicia.

Located on the top floor of the new A Laxe Shopping Centre, facilities at the 2,000sq m (21,528sq ft) club include a 500sq m (5,382sq ft) fitness suite equipped by Life Fitness, a swimming pool and a spa area offering a spa pool, Turkish bath, sauna, ice fountain, waterbeds, waterfalls, neck jets and bucket showers.

The club offers more than 600 group exercise classes each month, held both in the studios and, in the case of classes such as t’ai chi, in the centre’s 1,000sq m (10,764sq ft) outdoor space.

This terrace area also offers a solarium and restaurant/café, and the club has views over the estuary and the Cies Islands.

It is the chain’s 13th club in Spain, with plans to open a further five in the country over the next few months – in Seville, Barcelona, Castellón, Gerona and Torrelavega – representing an additional investment of €20m (£15.8m, US$32m).
