Lane End Group
Choosing to invest in the wellbeing of their staff was an easy decision for the Lane End Group, and they achieved their goal at their Warrington Head Office by creating a versatile gym space with the help of Origin Fitness. Have a look inside and see how a great corporate gym doesn't have to have a huge footprint.
The aim for the Land End Group team was to create an welcoming and bright gym facility for their staff to use throughout, before and after their working day. A secondary aim was to facilitate a healthy lifestyle for all their employees, and encourge interpersonal relationships between departments.
Equipment and Layout
Lane End Group had a 9m x 9m basement space, dedicated to the creation of their new staff gym. The outward-facing wall featured floor to ceiling part-frosted windows to provide a level of privacy, and brings in plenty of light to make the space feel bigger than it is.
Origin focused on creating an open-plan layout by building a custom performance rig between two pillars, enabling boxing and suspension training without cluttering up valuable floor space. A secondary modular storage bay was installed towards the back wall to provide a compact storage solution for all the functional accessories requested by the team.
Thanks to the storage bin and shelves, all accessories can be stowed away easily, from big sandbags to speed skipping ropes, keeping the gym safe and looking smart after every workout.
In the cardio zone, Origin Fitness recommended a mixture of traditional cardio and popular HIIT cardio machines. An Impulse RT700 Treadmill and Origin OR1 Rowing Machine are combined with Stairmaster Airbike and Concept 2 Ski erg. By including this variety, Lane End can ensure that all of their employees feel comfortable training within the gym, no matter their experience levels, goals or preferences.
For strength training, Origin provided a well-considered balance of equipment and free weight equipment. The versatile Origin Dual Adjustable Pulley combined with PT4 Pro Suspension Trainers offer a full body strength workout based around body weight and fixed resistance.
Additionally, a full set of 2.5kg - 30kg Origin RD2 Rubber Dumbbells and an Origin Performance Half rack were provided, complete with 117.5kg Rubber Olympic Plate set and two weight lifting bars.
To complete the gym, Origin Fitness installed 20mm gym flooring tiles, reducing noise levels and protecting the subfloor and equipment from damage, whilst also providing excellent grip for dynamic functional and bodyweight training.
