Ricky Hatton’s £2m gym packs a punch after major refit

Former world champion boxer Ricky Hatton has overseen a major transformation of his £2m gym to ensure it still provides members with knockout facilities.

Hatton Health and Fitness, the two-storey boxing-themed gym in Hatton’s hometown of Manchester, has undergone a radical transformation, including an interior rebrand courtesy of renowned graffiti artist ‘Eject’ and a complete overhaul of the fitness equipment.

The fitness arena has been equipped with more than 80 pieces of equipment from Matrix Fitness’ 7xe range, including a large number of CV machines, in a custom matte black finish. Not surprisingly, the kit list also includes a host of strength equipment from the Matrix Ultra Series, as well as Magnum benches.

“Boxing is an explosive sport, requiring endurance and power, as well as the ability to land a great punch,” said director of key accounts for Matrix Fitness, Jo Rich.

“Clearly Ricky is a master in his field, and is aware of exactly what it takes to be boxing fit, so we are delighted that he chose to equip his facility with Matrix Fitness equipment and hope that it inspires his legions of fans to follow in his footsteps.”

In addition to the main gym area, the facility also houses two fitness studios offering more than 30 classes per week – including Hatton’s accredited boxing for fitness class ‘Hatton ABC’ – and a purpose-built boxing gym on the top floor.
