We have crossed paths many times with Absolute Performance and their facilities over the past 15 years and have always been impressed with the quality of their products, the kindness and commitment of their team and their aspiration to do the right thing for their customers, regardless of the size of the project. We are very excited about joining forces with the AP team to provide a new and ambitious standard of fitness education.”

Testimonial
"Delivering three elite performance gyms across Paris in a short time frame is no mean feat, but we know Absolute Performance is up to the challenge. They’ve proven their expertise, service, and quality working with Team GB at the last two Olympic Games in Rio and Tokyo, and I have every confidence that Paris 2024 will be even better”

– Greg Retter, head of performance services, Team GB
Testimonial
"I would recommend Absolute Performance. They’ve done exactly what they said they were going to do. They’ve delivered on everything they promised but not only that, they’ve done it in a friendly way, they’ve done it in a supportive way. Nothing was too much trouble".

– Luke Brailey, curriculum lead for PE, Hardenhuish School
Testimonial
"The AP team also took a no-nonsense approach, with no extra fluff or pressure to add pieces of equipment which we weren’t looking to include. They grasped what we were looking to do with the open, natural feel, whilst wanting the premium equipment when it came to Olympic lifting and strength and conditioning equipment".

– Robbie Johnson, Stone Personal Training.
