Following the introduction of their new health and wellbeing concept Equilibrium last summer, The Marker hotel has added to the campaign this January across all areas of the hotel including the gym, restaurant and spa.
The Marker has partnered with No. 17 Personal Training owned by John Belton who has been in the fitness industry for 15 years. Regarded as one of Ireland most sought after personal trainers John’s passion is helping people to live to 100% of their capacity. The hotel has also introduced a ‘run club’ and yoga boxes where guests can practice in the comfort of their own rooms or on the hotel’s rooftop.
Speaking about the No. 17 partnership John said, “This allows me complete my holistic approach to wellness through the marriage of correct nutritional protocols, coupled with access to stress management facilities (hotel’s spa) as well as training in the state-of-the-art facilities. Having access to 5 star services like this allows me to fully integrate the D.R.E.S.S (Diet, Rest & Recovery, Exercise, Stress Management, Supplementation) to keep high-stress individuals functioning at the top of their game“. Personal training sessions at The Marker gym cost €700 for 10 classes.
For those who want to an urban retreat to feel refreshed and renewed The Maker Hotel has teamed-up with fitness guru Liz Costigan-Fleury who will run a retreat at The Marker on Saturday 23rd January.

There is also a goodie bag packed full of healthy treats to take away. Tickets are priced €75 for the day.
