More than JUST FITNESS! - Servicesport | UK


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.
