Ripped Gym expands to second site in Basildon

The team behind independent Harlow club Ripped Gym has recently opened a second site in Basildon – dedicated to company’s late founder – with the 12,000sq ft (1,115sq m) receiving a full fit-out from a range of suppliers.

Jordan Fitness was chosen to supply the gym with a wide selection of free weights and functional equipment including custom “Ripped” branded urethane dumbells. The supplier provided over 600 products in total, ranging from dumbells to sandbags.

Meanwhile, Life Fitness fitted out more than 80 pieces of Hammer Strength equipment including HD Elite power racks and V-Squat as well as 27 Life Fitness cardio machines from the Integrity and Activate series. The company has also crowned the new site an official Hammer Strength Training Centre due to the extensove range of cutting edge equipment on show.

“Since Elvis and Michelle Meade opened the first Ripped Gym in Harlow in 2008, the business has attracted a loyal membership base of amateur and professional athletes and we’re recognised for our passion and experience as the authority in bodybuilding and power lifting,” said Alper Kani, joint owner of Ripped Gym in Basildon.

“Through our second gym in Basildon, we’re helping to inspire more people to reach their fitness goals and we’re looking forward to building on our success and opening new sites in the years ahead.”
