REFURBISHED & REMANUFACTURED


COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTION Supplier: GymKit UK Client: Thamesmead Gym, London, UK


This 370sq m (4,000sq ft), 30-year-old gym in south London was taken over 11 years ago by head coach Kaylan Townsend. As well as offering a mainstream gym, one of the club’s specialities is outreach work and it’s involved with many disability projects, GP referrals, healthcare and rehabilitation, and working with youths and ex-offenders. Many ex-offenders have now turned their lives around and become fully qualified personal trainers.


THE BRIEF The club wanted good, branded equipment on a tight budget, with a full installation service and warranty. GymKit provided a full range of refurbished Precor cardio equipment and Technogym strength equipment, alongside Hammer Strength plate-loaded machines and fitness accessories including bench and weights. Townsend says: “The EasyLine Circuits sourced by GymKit


have proved an asset to our disability project and rehabilitation work. GymKit manages to source whatever we want, when we want it, providing us with complete circuits. In a previous installation, they even managed to source the Cybex plate- loaded circuit for us – that was like gold-dust for us!”


WHY THE PROJECT STANDS OUT Howard Braband, director of GymKit UK, says the company is proud to work with this gym, which supports a local community with its health and fitness needs. “The company has used us many times now, and to be part of such an important facility is a great honour,” he says.


Remanufactured kit matches the studio’s hi-spec interior


SLEEK & CHIC Supplier: Technogym Client: Fred’s Personal Training, London, UK


Founded by personal trainer Fred Fergé, Fred’s Personal Training is an exclusive private studio in south London, which provides a range of one-to-one personal training, nutrition and pre and post-natal fitness services.


THE BRIEF Fergé wanted to give the five-year-old studio a facelift by installing new equipment, keeping the studio on par with the best in the market. With affluent and discerning customers, he wanted premium equipment that would exceed customer expectations in functionality, appearance and feel. Technogym provided a blend of Still Novo CV equipment


– its remanufactured range, including Excite+ Run, Recline and Synchro – alongside Arke kit for functional training, as well as a variety of strength equipment, including an Olympic Half Rack. “The state-of-the-art design and functionality of Technogym’s equipment perfectly suits our ethos, underlined by a quality assurance that provides us with peace of mind,” says Fergé.


The community-focused gym had a tight budget


WHY THE PROJECT STANDS OUT The equipment was a seamless fit for the sleek environment of the studio, fulfilling both form and functionality requirements. There has been positive feedback from both owner and trainers, reporting that prospects have been impressed by the look and feel of the equipment and that clients find the machines user-friendly.


LOOKS LIKE NEW Supplier: Fit4Sale Client: Her Total Fitness, Ohio, US


Her Total Fitness is a 1,115sq m (12,000sq ft) women’s only club in Ohio, which opened in March 2014 offering a gym, group exercise and cycling classes, PT, massage and on-site childcare.


THE BRIEF Co-owner Brandy Bates wanted high quality equipment that would look high-end, brand new and appealing to the female


client base. Fit4Sale sourced a mixture of remanufactured Life Fitness and Precor equipment.


WHY THE PROJECT STANDS OUT


“This was a nice clean deal for Fit4Sale, as it was mainly all the more current models of both strength and CV,” says director Nick Pugh. “We were under pressure to meet the client’s budget, the demand for high quality, as well as their deadline for the grand opening – and we delivered on this. We made sure the majority of the equipment matched in the colour of the frames, which we did in platinum, with black upholstery. This gave the facility a very clean look.”
