Health Club: You might be advised to use the  Kharamana Resort ( part of the same hotel chain ) 10km away but our advice would be to travel just a few kilometres north to use the excellent facilities at 
Al Nada Resort which has probably the best health club on the Red Sea - an open secret known to many visiting Cairo VIPS.  Either book by limousine or if you don't mind waiting by the roadside you should be able to get one of the service taxis ( usually either old peugeot estates or more modern minivans ) heading north for just a few Egyptian pounds.   For a reservation phone Seifein on +201284332337.
