Supplier showcase: Ultimate locker install

Safe Space has created a new locker space for global franchise, UFC GYM, which both maintains its brand image and delivers operational support

Published in Health Club Management 2020 issue 7

Here at Safe Space, one of our most recent projects was for UFC GYM, which opened its inaugural UK sites in Nottingham and Woking late last year.

UFC GYM is the first major brand extension of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, offering health clubs with unrivalled training facilities, equipment and fitness classes for members across its 150 UFC GYM clubs worldwide.

UFC GYM in Nottingham and CLASS UFC GYM in Woking are two different gym concepts with varying requirements to accommodate members. Safe Space was tasked with delivering a creative and innovative solution that maximised the available space at both sites, to ensure there was enough availability of lockers during peak times.

UFC GYM also wanted all lockers to have an auto-open feature which was activated 30 minutes after the gym closes, to prevent members from storing things overnight.

Branding considerations
Both gyms operate under different brands, so this was also a consideration when determining the specs.

As these were the first UK sites developed by the brand, this gave us the opportunity to deliver a bespoke solution for each gym, in keeping with the global brand, that complemented the available space and added to the member experience.

We received great feedback from UFC GYM on our reliability and the service provided, and we’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with them as they expand further in the UK.

Gregg Rumble, our sales director, said: “The best piece of advice we can give is to always plan ahead – but be able to flex your plans, too.

“As with any site renovation or build project, there’s always an element of the unknown and sometimes not everything goes according to plan. With the requirement to factor installs around other suppliers – and sometimes against tight timescales – it’s important to have a plan in place but to be able to change so that the project can still be completed with as little disruption as possible.”
