New year, new kit!

Podium 4 Sport has supplied and delivered a range of new NXG functional and strength training equipment to The Body Barn Shropshire, which has kicked off 2015 with more classes, more equipment and more members.

Maurice Cooney and Danny Robb founded The Body Barn in Newport, Shropshire in 2012. They wanted to create an innovative and challenging environment that was approachable, fun and affordable.

Working from a barn in rural Shropshire they have grown their business to now have fourteen group classes a week with each holding the maximum of thirty members, as well as offering tailored nutritional plans, one to one personal training sessions and partner PT classes where two members work together with Cooney or Robb.

In late 2014, the pair identified a need to upgrade the equipment and extend the range of kit used in order to keep classes fresh. Working with Stuart Cain, of Podium 4 Sport, they created a bespoke package of NXG Exercise Equipment enabling them to replace old equipment, increase the range of pieces they use and, most importantly, keep costs down to ensure classes and sessions stayed affordable.

New dumbbells, Olympic bars and plates, battle ropes, double grip medicine balls and foam rollers were brought in from Podium 4 Sport.

The Body Barn classes are based around variety and a scientific approach to exercise with the group class circuit changing every two weeks to keep it fun and fresh. This meant a wider range of weights and equipment were needed to cater for all ages and levels of strength and fitness.

With dumbbells ranging from 0.5kg to 50kg, and different size bars and weights for the Olympic bars, The Body Barn can deliver results with their clients through a range of exercises and equipment. The newly released foam rollers have proved a big hit in allowing the gym to educate their members on the importance and methods behind recovery, post workout, and injury prevention.

Showing the entrepreneurial spirit that helped them win a local business award in 2014, Cooney and Robb are now looking to work with Podium 4 Sport to offer NXG equipment to their members at affordable prices to allow them to continue their fitness journeys and achieve their goals in and outside of the Body Barn environment.

Podium 4 Sport has been established in Northern Ireland for 35 years and last summer launched a range of fitness and exercise kit, NXG Exercise Equipment, and expanded into mainland UK, with the aim of supplying personal trainers, gyms, health clubs and physical training businesses with robust and affordable equipment. The full range can be seen here.
