Cybex International UK has relocated to its new headquarters in Coalville, Leicestershire, in support of the growing UK arm of the business. The new site will be home to the UK sales and operations teams and includes 5,500sqft of office space including new training facilities and specially built training room, 5,500sqft of expandable warehouse storage space plus 3,000sqft dedicated to spare parts storage.
The onsite gym will be used day-to-day by Cybex staff and as a showcase site for the manufacturer’s premium fitness equipment. A full range of cardio equipment has been installed including Cybex’s lower body and total body Arc Trainers; strength pieces from the VR1, VR3 and Eagle ranges sit alongside the award-winning Bravo Functional Training system which includes Bravo Pull, Press and Lift stations.
A Big Iron power rack, Jungle Gym and plate loaded equipment have also been installed, alongside dumbbells and functional training pieces from Jordan Fitness.
The new gym has been built in partnership with Premier Logistics, a UK and European transport company, who are also based on the Coalville site and whose 100 staff will share the training facility with Cybex.
The 50 seater training room will be used to host REPs accredited seminars available to existing Cybex customers, as well as product training and international sales meetings.
“The move to the new office represents the progress that the UK business has witnessed over recent years; globally, Cybex International achieved a record turnover in 2013 and Cybex UK contributed to this success,” confirms Rob Thurston, commercial director for Cybex International UK.
“The new facility allows us to better serve our clients by bringing the management of our customer service, operations and sales teams all under one roof; with the added storage space we will often be able to respond quicker to customers’ demands for products and parts. We can also showcase our equipment and latest innovations onsite, in a fully working gym environment and as soon as they are released to market, which is something that will hugely benefit our sales team and their customers.”
The new gym will be officially launched later this month, when Cybex UK will be holding an invite-only training and workout evening hosted by Cybex’s master trainers.
