case study: Refresh
Oakhill Leisure were looking for a cost-effective way of giving their gym an uplift. Having considered replacing the existing strength equipment with brand new equipment, Oakhill Leisure were looking for an alternative. Having approached ServiceSport (UK) Ltd to see what options were available, it was recommended to refresh the existing strength equipment and replace the worn pads at the same time. This would not only give the gym the wow factor that Oakhill Leisure were looking for but also save them a significant sum of money compared to buying brand new gym equipment.

“The joy of dealing with ServiceSport (UK) Ltd is that everything is dealt with by them. There is no 3rd party contractor attending site and removing the equipment, every step of the process is carried out by ServiceSport (UK) Ltd. The equipment looks like new now it has had a refresh, and the team re-installed the kit ensuring everything was in perfect working order. I would definitely recommend ServiceSport (UK) Ltd to anyone wanting to give their equipment a new lease of life” Gemma Baron, Oakhill Leisure.

With everything extracted and loaded, the equipment was transported to ServiceSport (UK) Ltd’s factory based in Chorley, Lancashire to be stripped down and worn parts replaced with new. Having decided on a ‘black on black’ scheme (great choice by the way!!) the frame was sandblasted to bare metal and powder coated gloss black. The original Technogym Selection line branding remained and the pads reupholstered in black.

The final result certainly enhances the existing gym space and gives Oakhill Leisure the peace of mind that their gym equipment will continue to perform as expected for many more years to come.
case study: Service and Repair

Through its asset management system, ServiceSport (UK) Ltd is able to share site information with Nuffield Health to show the condition of their gym equipment, schedule service visits, track repairs and review management reports to make informed business decisions in relation to the purchasing of new gym equipment.

Rick Crawford, Head of Commercial Development Fitness, for Nuffield Health stated, “With so many different manufacturers of our gym equipment spread across our estate, it makes our life easier knowing exactly what equipment, and its condition, is in each of our fitness clubs. We don’t need to worry about scheduling services as the team at ServiceSport (UK) Ltd handle all of that for us and the web portal makes reporting any issues so easy for our teams.”

During lockdown, ServiceSport (UK) Ltd has also carried out upholstery repairs to more than 87 of Nuffield Health’s fitness clubs, ensuring that their gym equipment was in tip-top shape ready for reopening to the nation.

“Not only are tears in pads unsightly, they also provide a breeding ground for bacteria to breed and the risk of infection to spread. To have ServiceSport (UK) Ltd carry out the repairs before reopening, further enforced our message to members that we take cleanliness, and their safety, seriously.” Confirmed Rick Crawford.

Testimonial
"This is the third year in a row that I have chosen to use ServiceSport (UK) Ltd for our gymnasium requirements. I find the customer services department ruthlessly efficient, and the maintenance team very professional with the way that they operate. Working within a military training environment, it is vital our equipment is in the best condition possible, and ServiceSport (UK) Ltd help us achieve this. Recent embroidery works conducted have really added a wow factor to the gym, turning our run down kit into kit that looks new again."
