case study: Nuffield Health, Friern Barnet: a modern makeover by ServiceSport UK!
Nuffield Health in Friern Barnet has recently given their gym a modern makeover thanks to the team at ServiceSport UK!

You can be forgiven for assuming that prolonging the life of your gym equipment simply involves stepping up your maintenance programme once the OEM warranty has expired.

A maintenance programme is an excellent way to ensure your gym equipment consistently performs at its best. However, over time, the look and feel of the equipment can deteriorate.

If you are an eco-conscious operator like Nuffield Health, how can you enhance your product without replacing it with new equipment?

“Although we work closely with ServiceSport UK to manage our gym equipment across the estate, we are constantly looking for ways to enhance our offering and innovate,” states Joanna Seldon, senior proposition manager for Nuffield Health.

“Having seen some of the amazing work that ServiceSport UK delivers for the Ministry of Defence, we were very impressed with how well the gym equipment looked and performed after their refresh process. It made perfect sense to choose this option. Not only does the equipment look new, it also ticks all the boxes for sustainability and our environmental and social responsibilities.”

The Nuffield Health Club in Friern Barnet gym has seen a range of its Technogym cardio equipment, including ten treadmills, a stepper, two waves, two varios, four synchros, four upright bikes and two recumbent bikes, along with several pieces of strength equipment such as adjustable benches, Olympic benches, a preacher curl and a Smith machine re-vitalized and given a new lease of life.

Matt Hoffman, commercial manager for ServiceSport UK Ltd stated, “ServiceSport UK couldn’t be happier with how the refresh project at Nuffield Health Friern Barnet has transformed the look and feel of the club. It’s extremely satisfying that we’re picking up more and more gyms in the commercial sector that are choosing to make the most out of their existing gym equipment. After all, buying gym equipment is a huge investment in the first instance. To help operators get an even bigger return on their original investment is a win-win situation for the operator and, more importantly, the members.”

ServiceSport UK and Nuffield Health have developed a relationship spanning more than ten years through the service and repair of gym equipment in 137 sites across the UK. ServiceSport UK has also supported Nuffield Health with their transformation projects at several high-profile clubs where new equipment has been built and installed by the ServiceSport UK team while the existing equipment has been extracted and delivered to other Nuffield Health clubs.
case study: Bannatyne health club, Broadstairs, Ramsgate
More Than Just Fitness

It certainly is at Bannatyne health clubs new concept gym in Broadstairs, Ramsgate!

Having recently opened its doors, offering a range of equipment including 108sqm of dynamic functional and cross-training space, 6 olympic lifting platforms, 9 squat racks, selectorized resistance equipment, 12 cable stations and more, the Just Fitness by Bannatyne Broadstairs site has been transformed to offer a new world of fitness opportunities to the people of Ramsgate and surrounding areas.

Having inherited a site that was already housing a range of commercial gym equipment, Bannatyne’s needed to partner with a reliable company to extract the equipment and up stepped ServiceSport UK to make it happen! ServiceSport UK has years of experience extracting, transporting, building and installing commercial gym equipment across the UK, completing large scale projects for the Ministry of Defence, JD Gyms, Nuffield Health, The Gym Group and many others!

Once the equipment was removed from site, ServiceSport UK began refreshing a range of Technogym equipment, including treadmills and cross trainers, ready to install at the Broadstairs site.

Refreshing used gym equipment involves completely stripping it down, replacing all worn parts, sandblasting the frame, powder coating the frame, wet painting the plastics, replacing pads on strength equipment, rebuilding the equipment, testing it and reinstalling on site with a warranty that includes parts and labour for extra peace of mind.

Having the option to fully customise the equipment to fit with the new black and red Just Fitness colours adds to the appeal of professionally refreshing existing gym equipment rather than buying new!

Colin MacGillivray, head of commercial at the Bannatyne Group said, “The expertise of the ServiceSport UK team was invaluable in the project to open the first Just Fitness by Bannatyne health club.”

ServiceSport UK carries out preventative maintenance services and repairs to the gym equipment across the majority of the Bannatyne’s estate and it just goes to show the value of existing relationships when the same provider can be relied upon to delve into their toolbox and help create something that looks as impressive as the first ever Just Fitness site.

“We are extremely proud of our relationship with Bannatyne health clubs, built initially from servicing their equipment and the swift repair of defects reported through our simPRO system. It speaks volumes that Bannatyne health clubs trusted us to deliver on this project as it was a completely new venture for them! We’re so pleased with how everything has come together and the look and feel of the site really is a credit to the Bannatyne name.” - Michael Ellis, commercial director for ServiceSport UK stated.

Testimonial
"This is the third year in a row that I have chosen to use ServiceSport (UK) Ltd for our gymnasium requirements. I find the customer services department ruthlessly efficient, and the maintenance team very professional with the way that they operate. Working within a military training environment, it is vital our equipment is in the best condition possible, and ServiceSport (UK) Ltd help us achieve this. Recent embroidery works conducted have really added a wow factor to the gym, turning our run down kit into kit that looks new again."
