In the vibrant heart of Manchester, a city known for its innovation and cultural diversity, something extraordinary is unfolding at Innside Manchester. Amidst the bustling streets and the echoes of urban life, a limited-edition collection of wellness bedrooms has emerged, capturing the essence of a new era in hospitality.

Among those fortunate enough to experience this unique offering is Laura Bartlett, a woman whose journey from fitness skeptic to enthusiast mirrors the transformation happening within the walls of Innside Manchester.

As she shares her insights and tales of her overnight stay in the wellness rooms, Laura invites readers into a world where hotels are not just spaces to rest, but vibrant hubs of personal growth, wellness, and celebration.

Buckle up for a witty, insightful, and downright fun exploration into the intersection of hospitality and personal development, as Laura Bartlett takes the reins to narrate her Peloton-powered adventure in the heart of Manchester.

A year ago, if someone had told me that I’d be booking a hotel stay based on the prospect of working out in my room, I would have laughed it off. But here I am, sharing my exhilarating experience at Innside Manchester’s new wellness guest rooms featuring the Peloton bike – a journey that mirrors my own personal transformation over the past year.

Let me rewind a bit. A year ago, the idea of exercise was as foreign to me as speaking a new language. The gym was a place I avoided like the plague, and the concept of breaking a sweat for fun was utterly perplexing. Fast forward, and I’ve shed over 40 pounds, embraced fitness, and made it an integral part of my life. So, when I heard about the wellness rooms at Innside Manchester, part of the Meliá Hotels International group, complete with Peloton, it was a no-brainer – the universe conspiring to celebrate my newfound fitness enthusiasm.

Innside Manchester’s collaboration with Peloton is more than just a hotel stay; it’s a celebration of wellness, fitness, and the joy of transformation. These limited-edition wellness bedrooms are a game-changer, equipped with not just a Peloton bike but also workout mats, yoga blocks, and resistance bands. The room becomes your private fitness sanctuary, where indoor cycling, yoga, meditation, stretching, and cardio classes are just a click away on the Peloton dream machine.

The Peloton bike, the cardio dream machine, takes centre stage in these wellness rooms. Its sleek design and cutting-edge technology seamlessly integrate with the room’s ambiance, making every workout a delightful experience. What’s more, the Peloton can be cast to the Smart TV, turning your hotel room into a virtual fitness studio – a feature I never knew I needed until now.

Peloton’s commitment to connecting the world through fitness aligns perfectly with Innside Manchester’s ethos of enriching stays with music, art, lifestyle, and wellness. As I peddled away in my room, I couldn’t help but marvel at the convergence of technology and hospitality, providing a seamless blend of comfort and inspiration.

The wellness rooms are an extension of Innside Manchester’s existing wellness facilities, including the Escape Spa, where guests can indulge in bespoke treatments designed to balance physical wellness and mind. The post-treatment facilities, such as the Finnish sauna and steam room, add an extra layer of relaxation to the experience.

For fitness enthusiasts like myself (still shooketh that I can call myself that), the hotel also boasts a 24-hour fitness centre with state-of-the-art gym equipment. It’s the perfect complement to the Peloton sessions, ensuring that guests can maintain their fitness routines even while away from home.

My overnight stay at this wellness hotel in Manchester was not just a hotel stay; it was a celebration of personal growth, wellness, and the joy of embracing a healthier lifestyle. Who would have thought that a hotel room could become a cardio dream machine reality? Certainly not the me of a year ago – but here I am, peddling my way to a healthier, happier version of myself, one Peloton session at a time.

Stay curious, stay fit, and consider booking a wellness room at Innside Manchester for your next adventure – you might just discover a new side of yourself.
