CYBEX has installed over 50 pieces of cardiovascular equipment at the Gym, Hounslow – one of 38 sites that make up the popular Gym Group chain.
The Hounslow facility, which opened in 2008, was the inaugural Gym Group site and the new install is an extension to the existing relationship with the Gym, Hounslow and CYBEX, who installed both cardio and strength training equipment when it first opened over five years ago.
The new equipment installed in July is from CYBEX’s 625 commercial series and includes treadmills, upright and recumbent bikes and both lower body and total body Arc Trainers.
The decision to continue with CYBEX was based on a number of factors, as Gym Group CEO John Treharne confirms: “The Hounslow gym opened in 2008 and is one of the busiest in the network. With 24/7 access, our equipment needs to be durable and able to withstand high usage levels – CYBEX originally installed at the facility and after five years of constant use we know the equipment meets our needs.
“For over half of our members, we are the first gym they have joined and so it’s essential that the equipment we use is accessible to all our users irrespective of ability and experience. We have always been happy with the kit originally provided by CYBEX and we were happy to maintain our relationship and upgrade the equipment as part of this latest install.”
Luke Berry, key account manager for CYBEX UK, said: “We’re delighted to extend our relationship with the Gym, Hounslow. CYBEX’s 625 series is designed for high-use, commercial facilities and will continue to provide the gym’s members with easy to use, premium quality equipment that they are used to.”
The Gym Group was recently confirmed as the UK’s fastest growing company within the low cost health and fitness sector, ranked in thirteenth place according to the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 (December 2012).
