Bannatyne Group introduces Speedflex to Scottish fitness market

We strive to be innovative and deliver the latest industry concepts to our members
– Justin Musgrove, chief executive, Bannatyne Group

The Bannatyne Group has introduced Speedflex to the fitness market in Scotland as it continues to roll-out studios across its portfolio of health clubs.

The high-intensity, low impact fitness sessions are available to members at the group’s Dunfermline and Edinburgh (Queen Street) health clubs.

The two studios follow those at Bannatyne’s in Darlington, Mansfield and Coulby Newham, with a further seven expected over the coming months.

“As a company, we strive to be innovative and deliver the latest industry concepts to our members,” said Justin Musgrove, Bannatyne Group chief executive.

“With the introduction of Speedflex we continue to add to the investment and provisions rolled out across our clubs.

“Speedflex further enhances our ability to utilise the latest industry platforms such as MyZone, enabling us to deliver an enhanced member experience.”

As reported in November, former England football captain Alan Shearer, who is a director and ambassador at Speedflex, launched the Mansfield studio.

Speedflex machines automatically respond to, and create resistance levels based on, the individual’s force, giving a full body, cardio and resistance workout that results in reduced post-exercise pain.

Speedflex chief executive Paul Ferris said: “Our ongoing partnership with the Bannatyne Group has been extremely effective.

"We've now successfully delivered five launches and we hope the members in Scotland enjoy this fantastic fitness opportunity.”
