ServiceSport can now offer a complete solution, from servicing and repairing gym equipment, to expert upholstery repairs

ServiceSport UK, a leading provider of gym equipment service and repair solutions, has announced a new partnership with Upholstery2u, a reputable name in the upholstery repair industry. The collaboration marks an exciting milestone for both companies and expands the range of services offered by ServiceSport.

Having served the fitness industry for over 20 years, ServiceSport has built a strong reputation for delivering exceptional customer service and high-quality maintenance solutions, including the service and repair of commercial gym equipment, the refresh of existing equipment, custom clothing supplies, gym equipment part supplies and 3D printing and CNC machining of gym equipment parts and equipment across the UK and overseas.

The new agreement with Upholstery2u will see it become a trusted partner for all upholstery repair, with the move being part of ServiceSport’s continuous commitment to excellence.

By joining forces, ServiceSport and Upholstery2u aim to provide clients – such as Nuffield Health, JD Gyms, Marriott Hotels, David Lloyd, Bannatyne Health Clubs, Total Fitness, Anytime Fitness and many others – with a further enhanced and comprehensive range of services, unrivaled in the fitness equipment industry.

Partnership of excellence
“It’s no secret that the fitness industry is booming – operators are seeing year-on-year increases in membership numbers and with this comes an increase in users,” says ServiceSport’s Michael Ellis. “This means gym equipment is being put under more strain and as a result, we’ve seen a 30 per cent increase in demand for our repair services since Q4 2022.

“Although we’re in a strong position in terms of our own growth strategy, in the 20 years we’ve operated, we’ve never been a company to ‘settle’ when it comes to our accomplishments – we’re always questing to do better,” he says, “Hence the new partnership with Upolstery2u – another service provider making waves in the fitness industry.

“What Upholstery2u has achieved in the past three years is testament to the work ethic of the team and overall quality of its work – we see nothing but glowing reviews.

“The fact the company has set such high standards made it an easy decision for us to partner with Danny, Michael and the team and we look forward to supporting each other, growing together and celebrating our successes moving forward,” explains Ellis.

“Upholstery2u brings a wealth of expertise and a proven track record in the upholstery repair field. The company’s team of skilled upholstery engineers excels in refreshing and restoring the appearance of gym equipment, ensuring it’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional,” he says.

“By leveraging Upholstery2u’s specialised knowledge, ServiceSport can now offer a complete solution, from servicing commercial gym equipment, to expert upholstery repairs,” he concludes.

Michael Boyle, MD at Upholstery2u, said: “Our business has been built with a huge focus on the customer and we feel that working together with ServiceSport will only enhance this.

We’re absolutely delighted to be partnering with them and believe companies working in unison is the optimal way forward.

“As both businesses have been at the top of their game for years, we’re confident this partnership will create a ‘one stop solution’ for all health club and gym operators in the UK,” he says.

Elevating the service
This exciting partnership allows ServiceSport to further elevate the level of service it provides its valued customers. Whether it’s repairing a torn bench cushion, refurbishing workout benches, or reupholstering gym equipment, ServiceSport and Upholstery2u combine their collective experience and craftsmanship to deliver outstanding results that exceed customer expectations.

Both teams are thrilled about this official partnership and look forward to expanding their reach, improving customer satisfaction and raising the bar in the fitness industry. Both are committed to delivering exceptional quality reliability and also driving innovation that sets new standards in equipment maintenance and repair.
