client gareth millings, director, alternative fitness, hampshire supplier york fitness equipment & the crossfit programme


e use the CrossFit programme because we feel

it makes exercises that are usually the domain of elite athletes – such as power movements, bodyweight training and so on – available to everyone. Although it’s used by many military units including the US Navy Seals, it also gives excellent training for the movements used in everyday life. “Through it we can offer high quality

coaching and programming that aims to improve all the 10 major physical skills: speed, stamina, strength, power, agility, balance, co-ordination, cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance and fl exibility. All these elements are included in our Workout of the Day (WOD) – a circuit class that we change on a daily basis, and that attracts between 10 and 40 members a day. “Our WODs are made up of

weightlifting, cardio and body weight exercises in as many combinations and variations as possible, including Olympic lifting, basic gymnastics skills such as handstands, exercises such as muscle- ups – a pull-up on a gymnastic ring – and squats, as well as heavy lifts (back squat, deadlift and shoulder press). This means that the same workout can be performed by men and women, at the same time, using the same equipment but just changing the weight. “Our relationship with York was born

out of a need for quality equipment at a reasonable price. We needed robust, strong equipment that could take constant use. We decided on two power cages, two Olympic lifting platforms, two squat stands, two adjustable benches, two sets of bumper plates and two Olympic training bars. Thus far, we have been very impressed with how well the equipment has responded to the rigors of CrossFit.”


client richard macklin, general manager, nirvana spa, berkshire supplier gym80 cable art range


e’ve recently had 90 pieces of gym80 kit put in

at our gym, including the six-piece Cable Art range. We’ve now started to run free supervised group training sessions on this range, with up to six people taking part at a time. The 15-minute classes are held on the hour throughout the day. “Each user performs an exercise for

one minute, with a 15-second rest while moving on to the next machine. “Every machine is fi tted with two

sets of handles, giving users two complete workout options; each circuit is performed twice to make the most of this potential. “Since introducing the classes, there’s

been a noticeable increase in the usage of Cable Art, with members feeling more confi dent and inspired to try advanced and functional exercises.”

for just under a year now and the outstanding aspect of these machines is the sheer versatility they offer. Whether you’re looking to apply them in a group exercise, strength and conditioning, or even rehabilitation environment, these machines can deliver whatever you throw at them. “HumanSport has been designed to

refl ect the mechanics of the human body. It’s so simple, so intuitive and so natural that it feels as though it’s been designed for each and every user.”
