British Medical Association - Staff Gym

Establishing a new staff gym was essential to the British Medical Association, in order to offer their staff a convenient, well equipped fitness space that promotes a healthy lifestyle. By converting the existing basement rooms in to a 120 sqm air conditioned fitness facility, BMA Head of Estates Ian Wade has already signed up 25% of the existing workforce, far exceeding their membership expectations.


We wanted to create a facility for staff that would enhance work-life balance, promoting well-being, and provide a positive installation for staff benefit. There are known benefits of improved staff morale and engagement which can also be linked to improved productivity.

Design & Equipment

Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive on all aspects; the design has been a great success, utilising basement storage space to convert to the 120 sqm air conditioned gym – with the added advantage of having a good degree of natural daylight. The equipment installed has proved we have used the space efficiently. The equipment looks great, and has attracted many positive comments particularly on the wide range of machines we managed to install.


Choosing the right equipment and machines would have proved a tough challenge - had we had not consulted with Origin Fitness from the outset! This made planning the actual layout and machine selection one less thing for us to worry about, safe in the knowledge we had the professional guidance on what needed to be considered and “in scope”.

From the outset the Origin Fitness account manager took ownership of our project, and shared the same passion, drive and enthusiasm to get it over the line. The expertise provided at every stage, especially with layout and equipment selection, meant we delivered a state of the art facility to cater for all.



The installation was meticulously planned, which meant the actual install was undertaken extremely efficiently without any issues. This took place outside normal working hours to minimise any disruption, and the team were particularly helpful and knowledgeable.

I would not hesitate to recommend Origin Fitness. The added-value of having professional expertise to direct and advise us made this project the success that it is.
