Speedflex hosts networking golf day at Close House

23 May 2024
/ Speedflex
Speedflex, renowned for its innovative approach to fitness, recently ventured into new territory by hosting its first-ever networking golf day at Close House, one of the most renowned golfing destinations in the UK.

With its sights set on making this an annual affair, the event promised a blend of leisure, networking and healthy competition amid the stunning backdrop of the Close House grounds.

Speedflex chair sir Graham Wylie’s ownership of Close House ensured access to one of the finest courses in the country. This not only provided an unparalleled setting for entertaining clients and prospects but also aligned with Speedflex’s ethos of promoting an active lifestyle for all abilities.

The guest list included a mix of current customers and prospects spanning various sectors of the industry.

Guests engaged in two competitions: Individual Stableford and Team Stableford (best two from four).

Prizes saw the individual winner receiving a £100 Close House gift voucher, while the triumphant team would claim the prestigious Speedflex Trophy, alongside £50 Close House vouchers for each member.

Additional prizes were up for grabs to those who showcased their skills with the longest drive and nearest the pin, earning coveted Close House polo shirts.

Notably, the day's activities included a pre-round warm-up led by master trainer Matt Bolam, utilising the Speedflex Blade. This not only primed participants for the game ahead but also offered insight into Speedflex's unique fitness approach, and the revolutionary ‘HIIT Without the Hurt’ training methodology.

Beyond just golfing and networking, Speedflex harboured strategic objectives for the day. By fostering closer relationships with existing partners and prospects, the event aimed to deepen understanding of Speedflex’s offerings and its visionary founders. It also served as a platform for bringing in new business opportunities, leveraging the power of shared experiences and mutual interests.

With plans already underway for future editions, this event promises to remain a highlight on the calendar for years to come.

Speedflex primarily caters to the gym and leisure centre industry, with a recent expansion into the hotel market, and the home market.

The introduction of the Speedflex Blade has enabled gyms and operators place Speedflex on the gym floor, allowing members to workout on-demand.

In 2024 Speedflex aims to continue expanding into gyms, leisure centres, hotels and beyond. Speedflex will be hosting multiple events for key industry professionals and clients, helping to expand client base and reach bigger markets.

Testimonial
“Fortis Powered by Speedflex is one of our most popular classes and the Championships have already become a much-anticipated annual highlight.
Members of all ages and fitness levels take part and thanks to the unique Speedflex concept it’s a real level playing field, rewarding effort over ability.
We’re proud to have such an inclusive fitness competition which represents our whole member demographic and fitness ethos.”

– Matt Hague, regional fitness business manager, Everyone Active
Testimonial
"We’re constantly striving to enhance our guests' experience and partnering with Speedflex allows us to provide the very latest in connected fitness for our guests and members.
The workout is both safe and inclusive which makes it the perfect fit for our diverse range of customers. Our guests can now enjoy a revolutionary fitness experience during their stay, reaffirming our commitment to offering the best amenities and services at The QHotels Collection."

– Keith Pickard, group director of golf, health club and spa, The QHotels Collection
Testimonial
"Jubilee Hall Trust has been pleasantly surprised with the Speedflex units. Not because of how good they are, the ease of use and the smoothness of movement - we knew they were good! We were surprised by how many of our senior customers used it, intuitively and without prompt.
Many operators have machines which are challenging for certain demographics of our community to use, least of all our seniors! But Speedflex is different. I have seen customers approach it for the first time, play on the screen and easily start a workout, and better still, they say their joints didn't hurt either.
Whilst many operators would put two units next to a rig, we have one in an open space and another in a quiet space; more private, less on show. It’s this unit the majority of individual users go to. Yes, the studio classes are better for having one but don’t rule out having one as part of your special populations area too.
I was surprised how well Speedflex sits in both camps. HIIT Without the HURT, perfect for classes and studio but equally as good for seniors to do those all-important compound movements; Osteoporosis fighting, strength training. Riskfree."

– Jon Giles, chief executive, Jubilee Hall Trust
