SUPPLIER SHOWCASE We take a look at recent installations by Cybex and Legend


Lovingly Restored Client: Kinesis Gym and Fitness Centre, London, UK Supplier: Cybex International UK


A


former 1930s Art Deco cinema in Eltham, south-east London, has been given a new lease of life and transformed


into a 860sq m (9,000sq ft) fitness facility. Having stood derelict since closing in 2000, the building is now home to Kinesis Gym and Fitness Centre, a state-of-the-art facility comprising a split-level gym, fi tness studio, treatment room and café. First opened in 1936, the Coronet


cinema has been a landmark in the surrounding area for almost 70 years. A target for vandalism since its closure, the building was voted upon by Greenwich councillors, who granted permission for the site to be turned into a vibrant mixed-use development. Behind the renovation is the Suggars


family, whose roots lie in Eltham and whose vision it was to restore many of the building’s original features, working in conjunction with English Heritage. These included a rounded projecting glass staircase tower, Art Deco moulds and windows, lighting and 1930s-style reception and café. The gym houses over 60 pieces of cardio and resistance equipment


The gym is housed in a local 1930s landmark, formerly the Coronet cinema


from Cybex, including VR3 and Eagle selectorised strength equipment with customised upholstery, the Bravo Functional Training System, Big Iron series of racks and benches and plate- loaded and free weights equipment. Cardio equipment includes Cybex


770T treadmills and 770C and 770R bikes incorporating E3 View


entertainment consoles. Cybex’s Total Body and Lower Body Arc Trainers were also installed. A large free weights and functional training area was equipped by Jordan Fitness. Dan Suggars, manager of Kinesis


Gym and Fitness Centre and a personal trainer, says: “I was hugely impressed with Cybex right from the start, not only because of the quality of the equipment and the science and research behind each piece, but also by the high levels of service and support provided. “Seminars run by Cybex’s master


trainers have benefi ted my staff greatly, while the design and activation of a number of marketing campaigns have supported our sales strategy and helped us to not only reach but exceed our original membership targets.” Tony Vaughan, Cybex regional


The building’s Art Deco reception was restored with the help of English Heritage 84 Read Health Club Management online at healthclubmanagement.co.uk/digital


sales manager, says: “The gym is a great addition to the community, and the work Dan and his family have undertaken to restore the building has been fantastic. It’s an inspirational and unique environment in which to train.” Details: www.cybexintl.com
