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.”

The Key Health Club is a small and friendly, privately-owned health and fitness club located in the heart of Keyworth village, only minutes from Nottingham City Centre.
New owner Phil Gabriel felt it was time to freshen up the club, and Gym Gear were delighted to be of assistance. The Gym Gear team worked closely with Phil to completely transform the existing gym and spin studio, to create a new sophisticated yet functional fitness suite.
Gym Design and Equipment Installation
For Phil and his team it was vital to introduce state of the art technology and the most up to date training methods, to enhance the experience of existing members, attract new members and maintain The Key’s reputation as a premium health club.
The equipment supplied for the project promotes all aspects of fitness including cardiovascular, strength and functional training, offering members a wider range of fitness classes and allowing for greater flexibility during individual workouts.
A selection of the latest Gym Gear cardio machines have been introduced, including T98 Treadmills, X97 Cross-trainers, indoor sport bikes and for those looking for an intense HIIT workout, the Tornado Air Bike. To cater for members with increasingly common strength training goals, The Key opted for a variety of resistance machines from the Gym Gear Elite Series range, complimented by a free weight space, featuring Gym Gear dumbbells, premium Olympic bars and benches.
The Key was also keen to introduce a functional aspect to the gym, thereby we chose to incorporate a Gym Gear wall mounted rig, fitted with a range of accessories including a punch bag, kettlebells, power bags and suspension trainers.
The gym now certainly looks like the exclusive, open plan fitness facility Phil was looking to create. Hopefully the redefined gym will exceed the expectations of members, providing them with a diverse range of training options in a fresh and exciting environment.
MaxiFitness is Fleetwood’s newest Leisure facility with a fully equipped gym, studio and beauty salon. Opening its doors in May 2017 Maxifitness is set to be a roaring success under the management of owners Dave and Maxine. The gym building has been fully renovated both inside and outside, providing a fresh and vibrant environment which is full of character and traditional features.
Fitness Warehouse have worked with Dave and Maxine to make their dream of opening a top specification gym come to life. The main gym is split into 3 areas, cardio, strength machines and free weights. All the strength equipment is custom branded with the Maxifitness logo. The free weights area features a lifting platform and premium 30mm thick rubber floor to reduce the impact from deadlifting and general free weighting exercises. A GymGear sterling series half rack is fitted with the lifting platform so members can squat, press or deadlift using a premium quality Olympic bar and bumper plates from GymGear. A wide range of dumbbells from 1-10kg and 2.5-50kg together with benches, Olympic benches, weight plates and a variety of different Olympic bars have been installed to provide a wide range of options for free weights training.
The Strength machines area is split between GymGear Elite series selectorised equipment, which is perfect for general strength training, and the Plate Loaded Sterling Series which is designed for heavy duty specialist strength training. With over 20 different strength stations members are spoilt for choice.
The gym is fitted with wide screen TV’s, as well as having TV’s on the cardio equipment so members can be entertained while they exercise, or they can just get down to business on the treadmills, cross trainer, exercise bikes, rowers and steppers.
At Fitness Warehouse we are delighted to have been involved with the new installation at Kinetik Health and Wellness. Kinetik is a new high-end gym based in Nottingham City Centre with an emphasis on providing a very personalised service to help members reach their goals. Situated in the Lace Market area it is perfectly located to service the local businesses in the city centre.
The main gym is split into 3 areas: cardio, functional and strength. The cardio area has state of the art Gym Gear performance series treadmills, cross trainers and bikes with full multimedia capabilities and entertainment functionality to help motivate and engage with members. There are also a few unique pieces of equipment including the Jacobs Ladder and Tornado Bike, to give members much greater variety in their workouts, and to really challenge themselves.
The functional area is arranged around the Spartan Rig centre piece, with kettlebells, medicine balls, suspension trainers, slam balls and much, much more. Spartan Rig classes are held daily and provide a fun way to improve fitness levels for all abilities.
The strength area has all the main Gym Gear Elite Series strength machines for upper body and legs, with customised Kinetik branding on all the seat pads. Around the corner fans of free weights can find dumbbells, benches, and a Sterling Series half rack with lifting platform and high impact bumper plates.
At the far side of the gym is a huge studio, equipped with GymGear M Sport Pro Spin bikes, studio barbells sets, steps boxes, prowler sled and sled track. A wide variety of exercise classes are available to members.
