Lisa and George Gillespie

Quote from Fitness Team: Lisa and George have achieved an incredible feat by trekking to Everest Base Camp in October. The level of fitness and mental strength it would have requires definitely deserves recognition. Their commitment to training and reaching their goal is truly inspiring. Well done both!

Fitness Achievement: Training for and completing a trek to Everest Base Camp as part of a 14 day high altitude trek, including summiting Kala Patthar at 18,500 feet and still being able to enjoy it!

Favourite thing about SnowDome Fitness: The variety and breadth of equipment and classes is fantastic, but the main thing for me is the culture within the gym, it is very friendly and inclusive.

Favourite piece of gym equipment: I have to say the climb, but it’s definitely a love/hate relationship! It has really helped me build endurance to cope with multi-day treks, with the aim of maintaining a steady heart rate whilst training with more than double the weight I was required to carry so my body was used to additional stress.

Best workout: It has to be my 90 minute sessions on the climb with a weighted backpack!

Current fitness goal: To maintain my current endurance and leg strength, whilst developing greater core strength and more anaerobic fitness.

Fitness achievement: Building my leg and lung capacity to survive a 14 day hike to 18,500 feet and Everest Base Camp. 

Favourite thing about SnowDome Fitness: It has everything I need in one place and lots of duplicate equipment so I rarely have to wait to use what I need.

Favourite piece of gym equipment: Not quite a favourite but the most effective was the climb as this most closely mimics the challenge of high altitude trekking.  This was done using a 20lb training vest to provide more realistic training.

Best workout: 45 minutes on the climb followed by 15 minutes of targeted weights working on my arms and the leg muscles used for downhill trekking.

Current fitness goal: Maintain current level of leg strength and slowly improve core and upper body strength and endurance.

Temporarily closed from 21st March

We have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close the SnowDome from 21st March as we believe this is the right thing to do to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and guests.

The SnowDome will remain temporarily closed until further notice.

Please refer to our website and social media channels for updates on re-opening.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the SnowDome as soon as it’s appropriate to do so.

Our aim is to deal with immediate bookings first. If you have a booking for a visit between 21st – 27th March then you will hear from us automatically this weekend.

We will then contact people with bookings from 28th March onwards next week.

Please do not call us unnecessarily this weekend as we try to deal with immediate bookings only. We will be contacting everybody as soon as we can.

Many thanks for your co-operation and understanding.
