WHO: ForHousing- Dock5 with Account Manager Matthew O'Connor

WHERE: Manchester, England

TYPE:Build to rent Gyms


ForHousing, a Housing Management Company, has an amazing background and a bright future in building a better community to live in. Their brand-new development, Dock5, aims to be one of the best within the area, with top features for the potential residents. Alongside the construction of the buildings, green areas and other features, the team wanted to create a gym space for the residents so they could work out without leaving the area and without compromising the quality of their training.



Based on their necessities, we delivered a multi-functional area for different types of exercise: Impulse Products were chosen for the cardio area, including treadmills and indoor bikes. These were installed with a Touch Screen System that allows users to track exercise progress more visually. They guide users through workouts, enabling them to strive for differing intensities throughout different intensities within their cardio training.

For conditioning and strength training, the site was equipped with different products such as resistance bands, TRX, kettlebells, and sandbags. Offering a variety of exercises options for the residents.

An Elite Storage Solution was the best option to make the best out the space for any strength and functional training, this along with our dumbbells and bar holder were the right choices to keep the space tidy. To have a more strength-focused area we also installed two half racks along with some multi adjustable benches. All of this aims to give the user a full workout experience without leaving the development.



The residents and team are enjoying the space and they are very happy with the results.

The gym is fitting for all the different needs, whether they want to build muscle or train for a marathon!

We were thrilled to take part in this project and glad that the gym is making the life of the residents more fun, active and healthy!
