Boohoo Operations Centre
Following multiple requests from employees for an onsite gym, key members of the management team thought it was time to introduce a fitness facility to the UK Operations Centre in Burnley.
Boohoo wanted to create a facility that would promote a healthy and active lifestyle, boosting staff moral, productivity, and ultimately enhancing the overall work life of employees. The aim was to convert an existing first floor office space into a well equipped fitness facility, which would feature all the amenities of a modern gym within the limited space available.
We decided to create 3 zones, comprising cardiovascular machines at the far end, selectorised strength equipment at the centre and a small free weights area to the front of the gym.
To maximise the utility of the limited space available, we installed a variety of premium Gym Gear cardio machines along either side of the gym and incorporated a selection of our multi-functional strength equipment, including a Lat Pull / Seated Row, Leg Extension / Leg Curl and a Dual Adjustable Pulley.
We also created a small free weights area, fitted with rubber interlocking flooring, an adjustable bench and a range of our Gym Gear kit including rubber dumbbells, kettlebells, performance bags, slam balls and gym balls, neatly organised on storage racks to conserve space.
This compact yet comprehensive studio is ideal for individual workouts, offering staff a well deserved time out during their lunch break or at the end of a busy working day.We hope this transformation exceeds expectations and we look forward to working with Boohoo on future projects!
“Our experience from start to finish has been great! The project was completed on time, to budget and ran far more smoothly than we could have hoped for. Our staff are delighted with the new facility and love being able to fit in a quick workout on their lunch break or before their shifts! I would have no hesitation in recommending Gym Gear to anyone looking for a comprehensive and professional service, and should we undertake a similar project in the future I would be sure to approach them again.” -
