The ongoing relationship with Origin has been great, in particular the support and servicing to ensure equipment is maintained and performing well.

UGym's plan was to offer the Tillicoultry community a fitness centre that would rival any large city gym. Due to its rural location, the creation of a top-quality facility would open up the possibility of attracting the attention of members from further afield, creating a larger than usual catchment area.
UGym's focus was to offer the highest quality equipment to its members, alongside presenting the gym as a high-end facility through innovative design. Based on these goals, we worked with the team to deliver a great solution.
The gym was design to split the space into various training zones. Each zone contained tailored equipment to meet members training needs. The main gym floor initially held a Redline Zone, which is a dedicated HIIT workout area. A strength zone and PT Studio were also installed which offered a range of free weights, Sterling plate loaded kit and studio accessories.
After the initial installation in 2019, we have continued working together to provide members with the latest trends in the fitness industry. UGyms’ growth was astounding, and the gym required more suitable equipment and workout solutions, which is why we were called upon once again in 2022.
The gym has retained a lot of the equipment that was installed in 2019 - from the Custom Sprint Track and Origin Performance Power Racks to a wide offering of free weights such as the Origin RD2 Dumbbells. The equipment installed in 2022 was introduced to support the pieces that were already in place.
Due to the immense growth that this site was experiencing, uGym required a smart solution to allow users to have access to multi-functional training spaces. Considering this, the decision was made to remove the Redline Rig, and install a Custom Performance Rig .
Redline was phased out and replaced by a 3.5-metre Performance rig to accommodate new equipment. Origin Sandbags, Origin Slam Balls , Origin Training Bumpers , and more can be stored within the rig to accommodate classes and individual training.
The 3.5-metre rig was custom designed to feature a wall ball target, pull-up bar, muscle-up bar, rope anchor, spotter arms, and a variety of shelf sizes to store the equipment. With increased flexibility and by taking advantage of more floor space, this zone provides a new and exciting space for members training.
With any large space renovation, flooring should be updated to take into consideration the equipment in this area, and to protect both the equipment and the sub floor. The Origin Premium 20mm Rolls were removed and replaced with our durable Origin 40mm High Impact tiles. Ideal for any zone where weights are routinely dropped from heights.
It’s been great to be involved in uGym’s growth and helping them stay up to date with the latest trends in spaces concepts. Members and trainers are enjoying the current equipment and we look forward to our future projects together.
This gym was a passion project a long time in the making, but we are delighted with the end result. We are confident that our fitness offering puts us at the forefront of the fitness industry in Central Scotland. Working with Origin Fitness has been great - they jumped through hoops to make sure the products were just right for our space, and allowed us to make as many changes to the gym design as we needed in order to feel comfortable with the end result.
Converting an old mill in to a modern fitness space was expected to bring some problems with it, but overall we are delighted with the support we received from the Origin Fitness team, and would recommend them to anyone looking to set up their own fitness facility.
