Abraham Darby Sports and Leisure Centre, the first of two sites CYBEX was awarded the tender to provide all cardiovascular and resistance training equipment, is now open to the public.
Commissioned by Telford and Wrekin Council, the project is part of a multi-million pound redevelopment programme in the region.
As part of the install, CYBEX provided seven 750T treadmills, 11 Arc Trainers and six cycles. The new gym facilities also include the Bravo functional trainer, CYBEX’s cable-based strength training machine. Designed to provide hundreds of movements in one single space-efficient piece of equipment, the Bravo offers a unique total body training solution.
The Bravo Workout Guide iPhone app has also recently been launched by CYBEX, to guide users through a series of personalised workout programmes. For more information on this, click here.
The install will also include CYBEX equipment from the Eagle, VR3 and VR1 dual strength ranges.
The second site in the city is Wellington Leisure Centre; currently undergoing significant refurbishment to include a brand new fitness suite, the site is set to open next month.
CYBEX will supply Wellington Leisure Centre with brand new cardio equipment including six 750T treadmills, eight Arc Trainers and six cycles. These will be accompanied by the Bravo functional trainer plus various pieces of equipment from CYBEX’s Eagle and VR3 strength lines.
The equipment installed at both sites will also include Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) equipment, as part of CYBEX’s Total Access range. As one of only a few suppliers to offer a comprehensive range of stage two IFI accredited equipment, CYBEX has developed the Total Access range to include both cardiovascular and strength training equipment designed specifically to suit the needs of physically impaired athletes.
On the decision to choose CYBEX, Sophie Griffiths, group services development manager for Telford & Wrekin Council, said: “We put the contract out to tender as we wanted to review all options available to us. CYBEX was chosen because it provided premium quality exercise equipment that not only met the needs of all of our gym members, but was also highly durable and robust in its design. We continue to work closely with the CYBEX team who also provide excellent after-sales care”.
Alan Ellis, key account manager for CYBEX UK has played an important role throughout the tender process and was delighted to secure the contract: “The redevelopment projects put in place by Telford and Wrekin Council will bring about huge benefits to the local community. Knowing that CYBEX equipment will be used by individuals of all levels of ability and sporting interest shows just how accessible and widely used CYBEX equipment is.”
