Supplier showcase: The personal touch - Physical Company

SIX3NINE opened its second London studio in August, and will continue to partner with Physical Company as it aims to open up to five studios across the city

When personal training brand SIX3NINE – operating in London’s Covent Garden since 2012 – decided to open its second London-based studio, it turned to Physical Company to help replicate the atmosphere and brand of its inaugural site.

SIX3NINE’s Dan Baldwin explains: “It wasn’t just about bringing across the décor and logo, although Physical Company absolutely delivered here through custom-branded equipment, it was about ensuring the whole place feels like the first site: the flow between equipment, the floor space, the cool selection of kit.”

Innovative design helped achieve this goal. “For example, building squat racks and Olympic lifting platforms into the floor has created a seamless flow around the gym,” says Baldwin.

Crucially, Baldwin also wanted smaller equipment to be as multi-functional as possible, given the one big difference between site one and this new site off Liverpool Street: the addition of a studio for group exercise and small group training. “Having equipment that can be moved from one area to another, and that has more than one function, is very useful,” he says.

‘Brilliant’ storage
Storage was another key requirement, as Baldwin explains: “Our training focuses on free weights and bodyweight, teaching clients to better use their bodies through everyday movements.

“To reinforce the idea that your body is the equipment, we wanted people’s first reaction to be: ‘Where’s all the kit?’ Physical Company’s storage solutions are brilliant in this respect, seamlessly blending our equipment into the background when not in use.”

He continues: “But what really stood out, and the reason we would definitely work with Physical again for future sites, was the customer service. From our first meeting, it was such an easy relationship: the way they handled our account and our needs was so personal and so responsive.”

Physical Company sales and marketing director James Anderson comments: “With its focus on quality – on creating the best possible space to support its training ethos – it has been an absolute pleasure to work with SIX3NINE on this project. We very much look forward to supporting the team as the brand continues to grow.”
