The Journey - SOS Fitness

The Journey by SOS Fitness

Over the past few years, SOS Fitness have been operating out of Hermitage park in Glasgow to reach clients from across the city. In order to bring their training offering to the next level, Steve Losh from SOS Fitness identified the need for a new state-of-the-art facility. Starting from scratch, they worked with Origin Fitness to create an exciting new modern strength and conditioning gym.


The objective was to create a community PT Hub for SOS Fitness; with the new works taking place within the park, we needed to find a new home for our growing client base.

Taking this opportunity, they worked hard to open the doors to their brand new facility in September 2017. The transformation of this space would prove a resounding success and translate in to a 300% membership growth for SOS Fitness.

Equipment and Layout

In order to cater to the Journey's flexible training programme, plenty of free space was required to allow trainers to work with multiple clients at once. It was also vital to the team that every member walking through the door could be accommodated in one way or another, meaning a great variety of equipment was required.

By working closely with the Origin Fitness team, a clever combination of functional accessories, storage solutions and strength training equipment was created that would cater to all their demands.

Creating this open floor space was achieved by combining wall mounted storage solutions, custom flooring sections, integrated lifting platforms and a bespoke wall mounted rig, removing the need for traditional power racks which would take up more floor space.

The design of the centre was always to allow our coaches to deliver a periodised strength & conditioning programme that could be accessed by anyone and everyone, irrespective of age or gender, colour or creed.

A selection of Origin's top functional accessories was brought in to complement the strength offering, ranging from our colourful competition kettlebells to versatile power bands. Bringing in the durable Origin RD2 Dumbbells alongside iconic Origin Coloured Urethane Bumper Plates completes the site, offering all members a fulfilling workout with top quality equipment.


The initial response to the centre has been amazing, our clients now have a place to call home, and we have grown the membership by 300%. We now have over 100 members in the Journey and still growing. The centre has been a great addition to SOS Fitness along with all the different classes we run.

Origin Fitness helped at every stage of the development from initial designs to kit install, the knowledge and expertise they offered throughout was very professional and always on point. The project manager was Harry Russell, whose constant updates and professionalism was second to none, and his flexibility with dates and times was excellent.
