Flooring specialist Pavigym has launched its innovative Prama concept into the London market.

Prama made its London debut in July 2017 at the Harbour Club in Kensington – an exclusive health club operated by David Lloyd Leisure.

The concept was designed to make training fun by interacting with the user. It features pressure sensitive walls and flooring, interactive touch screens and different lighting combinations. It is fully adaptable and can be customised to suit different types of classes and fitness levels.

Marcos Requena, owner and CEO of Pavigym, says: “We wanted to create something unique. Prama combines great instructors, light and music with workouts designed to train strength, speed, agility, mobility, power and more.”

Requena adds: “Users can burn up to 750 calories in a 45 minute class. Regular users will see an increase in stamina, endurance and overall enjoyment while working out. All the user needs to do is push play on the workout they want.”

Sinead Johnson, group family manager at David Lloyd Leisure says: “The Harbour Club Kensington is the first club in London to offer a new concept in fitness. Prama allows us to recreate different experiences and signature programmes for everyone to enjoy in a single space.”
