LUXE HIGHLIGHTS • A membership smart card stores your personalised workout regime, which can be mapped out for you by a Virgin Active trainer. Plug it into the Technogym Wellness fitness machines to track your progress. The system tells you when you’re exercising too quickly or slowly, and which equipment to use next. • Steam and ice rooms to relax tired muscles; showers with sprays of mist to cool you down; and a room where you can breathe in salt particles, which are said to help purify the respiratory tract and skin. • Sleep pods – these lullaby-playing recliners are available in 20-minute slots for those who need a power nap. • Shower cubicles stocked with soap, shampoo and conditioner from luxury brand Molton Brown. • Workout clothes and towels are provided, so all you need to bring is your footwear. FEES $42.50 a week for a two-week contract, with a one-time activation charge of $199, or $37.50 a week for a 12-month contract, with a one-time charge of $74.
