GP-referral specialist indie gym invests in upgrade

An indie club in Solihull which has attracted 20 per cent of its members through its commitment to the GP Exercise Referral Programme, has added a wide range of new kit as part of a two-phase investment programme.

The Hampton, a gym which specialises in results-based exercise, has now completed the £62,000 refurbishment which has seen the addition of an extensive range of Life Fitness equipment. The chosen range is designed to provide tailored workouts for members and enhanced interaction to keep them engaged and motivated.

The club – launched in 2005 by PTs Paul Ebrey and Gareth Thomas – completed the first renovation phase last year with the introduction of 14 cardio stations. This included pieces from the Integrity Series with Discovery SE consoles including treadmills, Elliptical cross-trainers, stairclimbers and recumbent Lifecycle exercise bikes. The second phase has also now been completed, with the addition of Optima single stations, Signature cable motion and Hammer Strength Athletic Series equipment.

In addition to a newly refurbished 4,000sq ft (372sq m) gym, members of The Hampton have access to a large studio area with 20 group cycling bikes and bespoke suspension training bar, plus a therapy suite offering physiotherapy, osteopathy, acupuncture and sports massage.

“Having worked with The Hampton team over the last six months, they have been able to transform the offering at their club and give members the best-functioning fitness equipment on the market,” said Life Fitness account manager Blake Fletcher.

“We have also supported them with staff training to help maximise their equipment investment and promote the key features and benefits to members.”
