An increasing number of local authority-owned leisure centres are being upgraded with spa facilities, as operators embrace the emerging trend to provide members with wellness.

Leisure operators and suppliers, such as Everyone Active, Malling Leisure Trust, Sentinel Leisure Trust and Pulse Group among others, have identified that council partners are increasingly expressing an interest in spa and wellness facilities.

Everyone Active, which operates eight spas across its 150 leisure centres, is attempting to close the gap between private and public sector facilities by growing its premium spa brand.

Duncan Jefford, Everyone Active regional director, told the latest issue of Health Club Management: "There has been a consumer shift towards holistic wellbeing, and including spas in the facility mix reflects this.
