Time For A Refresh?

Now is the time to consider refreshing your used commercial gym equipment without fear of it continuously failing you!

Over the years we have worked with many of the UK’s largest gym operators including Nuffield Health, the Ministry of Defence, Bannatyne health clubs, Active Tameside and Total Fitness to enhance the look and feel of their facility. Such projects have included a complete refresh of their gym equipment including treadmills, cross trainers, upright bikes, pin-loaded strength equipment, multi-adjustable benches and plate-loaded equipment. Taking equipment that is perceived to have exceeded its lifespan and giving it a new lease of life by completely stripping it down, replacing worn parts, sandblasting the frame, powder coating in the original, or a custom colour and installing new pads has a massive impact on member satisfaction, attrition rates and the perception of your gym.

Refreshing your gym equipment is at least 33% less than purchasing new gym equipment. Our most recent refresh projects saved the operator more than £150,000 compared to replacing their existing gym equipment with new – it really does pay to SWEAT YOUR ASSETS! 

Take a look at the number of benefits associated with refreshing your existing gym equipment below:

  • Cost savings: By refreshing your existing equipment, you will save a significant amount of money compared to purchasing new equipment while still improving performance and aesthetics of your gym facility.
  • Maximising ROI: Refreshing your existing equipment allows you to maximise your return on investment (ROI). Extending the lifespan of your equipment and continuing to get value from your initial investment whilst upgrading, or enhancing specific features, instead of purchasing entirely new machines.
  • Member satisfaction: Familiarity and consistency are important to your gym members. Refreshing existing equipment helps maintain a sense of continuity for your members who are accustomed to using certain machines. This enhances member satisfaction and reduces the need for additional member training on new equipment.
  • Minimising downtime: Replacing all your gym equipment requires a significant amount of time and effort, resulting in downtime for your gym, and many unhappy members. Refreshing your existing equipment can be done incrementally, allowing your gym to remain operational and minimising disruption to member usage.
  • Minimal learning curve: Introducing brand-new equipment will require staff training and member orientation to ensure proper usage. Refreshing existing equipment reduces the learning curve for both staff and members since they are already familiar with the equipment’s basic functions.
  • Flexibility and customisation: Refreshing equipment enables you to tailor your equipment to your specific needs and preferences. You can choose to customise the equipment to align with current fitness trends or address specific member demands, enhancing the overall experience and satisfaction.
  • Environmental considerations: By refreshing your existing gym equipment instead of replacing it entirely, you will contribute to environmental sustainability by minimising waste and reducing the ecological footprint. This aligns with the growing importance of eco-conscious practices in the fitness industry.
  • Budget allocation: Refreshing your existing equipment allows you to allocate your budget strategically. Instead of spending a significant portion of your budget on new equipment, you can allocate funds to other areas such as marketing, facility improvements, or member engagement initiatives.
  • Compatibility and integration: Refreshing your existing equipment ensures compatibility and integration with your gym’s existing technology infrastructure. This can simplify data tracking, connectivity, and management systems, enabling seamless integration of features without significant disruptions.
