Desert Springs is the Spanish Home of 'Daley Training'. Daley Thompson, double Olympic Gold medallist and the world’s greatest ever all-round athlete offers training sessions for those who wish to kick start their fitness, whilst at the same time enjoying the company of a double Olympic Champion in the unique surroundings of Desert Springs.
“My sessions will work best for those who want to take their fitness to a whole new level. Every session will be based on achieving all-round fitness, whilst at the same time being fun, challenging and of course hard work!”
This is a small, relaxed and pleasant place to tone up and is not intended as a factory style gymnasium. Light and airy, the whole of the front can be opened to take advantage of the pleasant dry climate.
It is equipped with state of the art equipment from Star Trac, including treadmills, steppers, rowers and weights, with plenty of space for floor work. The external exercise steps are just outside, as are Boxing Bob and Junior.
For those, who prefer to exercise in complete privacy, there is also the similarly equipped Individual Work Out Area and Private Sauna and Jacuzzi Suite in the Private Reserve facilities.
Jogging Tracks & Trim Trail
Two spectacular Jogging Track Loops of 1.6 and 2.2 km, equipped with 16 plus individually equipped Exercise Stations to provide a varied and scenic Trim Trail are available through the landscaped areas of the Resort.
Take yourself on a spectacular self-guided bike tour.
