Physical announces sponsorship of GLL Sport Foundation

18 Apr 2023
Physical has unveiled a package of support that sees it step into a sponsor role for the GLL Sport Foundation / GLL / Physical
As the GLL Sport Foundation (GSF) celebrates its 15th anniversary, Physical has unveiled a package of support that sees it step into a sponsor role for the Foundation – the UK’s largest independent athlete support programme.
 
The support package comes as part of the agreement that sees Physical reappointed as GLL’s functional training and studio equipment partner. Physical has committed to creating and subsidising bespoke packages of high-quality training equipment for Foundation athletes.
 
GLL CEO and GSF chair Peter Bundey said: “The GLL Sports Foundation exists to support young people with athletic talent to achieve their full sporting potential, by reducing the financial burden of training and competition costs.
 
“Over the last 15 years, we’ve supported over 24,000 athletes at all stages of their athletic journeys, including Ellie Simmonds MBE (para swimming), Anna Hursey (table tennis), Daryll Neita (athletics), Lucy Shuker (para tennis) and Aiden Walsh (boxing).”
 
He continues: “Our support spans financial bursaries, training and gym memberships, travel, physiotherapy, and mental health and wellbeing support through a new partnership with Switch The Play Foundation.
 
“For 2023, the GLL Sport Foundation will support over 2,000 athletes with an annual budget of £1.2m thanks to the help of a number of key sponsors.”
 
Physical managing director John Halls said: “Physical is delighted to be reappointed by GLL and equally delighted to support its incredible work with the GLL Sport Foundation.
 
“We look forward to finding out the list of athletes on the GSF programme for 2023, and to playing our small part in their future successes.”

Testimonial
“The high quality of the Physical kit was the first selling point: everything is really well-made and looks great too.

“The option to integrate our branding was also key to our decision: we plan to open multiple COACHED locations in the future, so we’re very focused on building a strong brand.

“With Physical, we’ve been able to create a bespoke turf track for each floor: highly customised and branded centrepieces that we know are also manufactured to last. Our storage and squat racks are also custom-branded. There are flashes of COACHED branding all across the club.”

– Alan McGuinness, Co-Founder, Coached Gyms
Testimonial
"The Physical team were confident they could deliver on time and on budget, and they did exactly as they said they would.

“There were challenges along the way, as there so often are with projects like this, but I can’t fault Physical’s speed and responsiveness in addressing and overcoming them. I believe you find out more about a company when challenges arise than if everything is plain sailing, and we very much appreciate Physical’s customer service and ability to find solutions.”

– Adam McNeely, Health, Safety & Projects Manager, Kirklees Active Leisure
Testimonial
“From order to installation and beyond, everything happened as Physical said it would: the whole thing has been very straightforward and we’ve found Physical easy and efficient to work with.

They’re also down-to-earth and trustworthy – you get a real sense of it being a family business – which makes them great partners.”

– Michelle Mojzis, General Manager, Sanctum
