"As a Project Manager, I was given the task of creating a new fitness suite for an Independent School in York. The school had given us an initial design which used old kit from an old workout area which was very much of a domestic nature. Upon realising that we needed to speak to an expert in the field, I contacted Origin Fitness to see if they could assist.
I spoke with Josh to explain what we were trying to achieve, and the space we had to achieve it. I told him that timescales were important and that we needed to move quickly. Josh and the team at Origin Fitness put together a proposal within 24 hours which meant we could show the school just what could be achieved with the space. After about 1 week of constant emails back and forth we got to the best use of space and the best range of kit we were able to place our order. Their team managed the full installation and training for our staff too.
The team at Origin Fitness were able to specify what gym equipment would be best for different aspects of training, including cardiovascular, weight training and functional training. They were also able to explain in more detail what the current trends were in fitness suites to make sure we kept up to date within this area. They were able to source good quality commercial grade gym equipment for us at a reasonable cost. They were incredibly helpful with pricing up different extra’s for us, including the built in TV’s into all the CV kit, which we ended up going for.
The whole process from the first email to the official opening was 3 months exactly. We now have a fitness suite which has just over 100 individual pieces of equipment that can all be used at any one time. It has gone down an absolute storm with the students and staff at the school and assists the school toward their goal of having the best sporting facilities in the area.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Origin Fitness – they’re service is second to none and they were able to take our objectives and turn them into reality. The kit they recommended and we subsequently purchased is heavily used by students and will stand the test of time."
