Buffbodeez Gym, Dumfries, UK

The Challenge

Instead of wanting to fill their gym with endless treadmills and the usual cardio equipment, Buffbodeez wanted their gym to have a real focus and application of functional, strength, and performance training as well as being a well equipped gym for those looking to simply gain lean muscle.

The team from Buffbodeez, Andy, Clare and Robert, contacted the Commercial department at Powerhouse Fitness in mid-September of 2014 and have been working together ever since. Their focus was to bring serious competition against the other private and council gyms in the area as they felt these facilities weren’t offering the same level of service, knowledge, equipment or experience that they could offer if they were to open their own facility.

The Solution

Working together to identify and select kit that offered contemporary solutions, the gym was up and running in February 2015. Equipped with an impressive variety of weights, strength kit and functional training equipment, Buffbodeez simply boasts some of the most impressive equipment of any private or council gym in the area.

Buffbodeez also offer personal training, and a full timetable of a variety of fitness & circuit classes including Metafit and Les Mills, so whatever your goal may be, Buffbodeez are equipped to help you achieve it.

Renfrew Health and Social work centre, UK

The Challenge

We were asked to carry out a site visit at Renfrew’s newly built health centre back in 2013 as they required a staff gym. They had one room in which they required various machines ranging from CV to strength to enable them to cater for all employees.

The Solution

After taking some measurements and listening to the customer’s needs we thought the best way to maximise the usage of the room would be to use our dual strength machines along with our Dual adjustable pulley which would allow the user to work two muscle groups or more on each machine. We put together a floor plan to give the customer an idea of what the room would look like with the machines that we suggested.

The customer was delighted with the amount of equipment we could safely fit in the room and ordered soon after they seen the plan.

RH Fitness, Sunderland, UK

The Challenge

Richie Howey made contact with Powerhouse Fitness as he was looking to start up his PT studio in Sunderland. His view was to be able to cater for all clients needs with a emphasis on functional training.

The Solution

After speaking with Richie and making some amendments on the quotations we put together a cost for power racks, benches, lifting platforms, crossfit bars, bumper plates finishing the studio off with some heavy duty enduramax flooring. Richie was delighted with the end results and very grateful on the discount we were able to offer him a commercial customer setting up their own studio.

The gym has been a great success, filled out 50 members in first month. There is another gym location over the road which we are gonna look at so may be moving in a year, and will obviously need more equipment so looks like you have earned a life time customer. Thanks you so much for all your help in this and for the incredible discount, you made our dream become a reality. It was your kind approach that filled me with confidence to buy from your company.

The Club Gym, Glasgow

The Challenge

Powerhouse fitness was chosen to design, supply and build an exciting new gym project in glasgow. This boutique gym had a strong vision of not only the aesthetic that they wanted to create but also The service that they wanted to deliver. Owned and run by some of the leading personal trainers in Glasgow this gym offers something truly different.

The Solution

Our brief was simple. The team at the Club Gym wanted everything to be matt black to keep in line with their theme that their gym is a Gym / Club Fusion. Their motto is: ‘this is no ordinary beige health club’. The owners wanted only the highest quality equipment and to ensure that they had something to suit each clients training needs.

The commercial team at Powerhouse spent time with the guys from Club Gym and worked out a room plan to ensure they maximised the space that they had available to them. The gym is built over two floors , with the downstairs focussing on the free weights. The upper level consists of the CV equipment, single stations and the studio.

We offered a few suggestions on the kit and came to the conclusion that as this was a high end boutique gym we had to go for the industry leaders for the CV and Strength equipment. The natural choice for the CV equipment was Life Fitness and Waterrower.

The strength kit was provided by Exigo, a UK based company that design custom made kit to suit any space. Bodymax provided the weights, some dual function machines. The benches were branded with the Club Gym logo and the Waterrowers were custom coloured.

15 unique pieces of leading Iso Lever strength machines, ergonomically designed to isolate specific muscle groups.

Leading fixed-weight machines.

Free weight area with premium dumbbells from 2.5-60kg.

Dual adjustable cable machines with heavy weight stacks.

Separate lifting zones with full racks, half racks, a linear bearing smith machine and lifting platform.

As you move through The Club you will see a turfed ramp. They didn’t do this just to make the area look funky. They have developed an Incline Prowler runner ramp. A UK first. We all know Prowlers are the killer finisher at the end of any session.

“The team at Powerhouse were superb from start to finish. They fully understood our vision and worked tirelessly to ensure that they provided the best equipment to suit our budget and space. They understood the challenges that starting a new business can present and were able to work to our timescales to make sure the kit was delivered and installed on time. The end result is a gym that we could only have dreamed of! Our customers love it and as a personal trainer I do too. The equipment is some of the nicest that I have ever used in my 13 years as a PT. I would strongly recommend Powerhouse Fitness, they offer first class advice and service and made this journey incredibly easy for our whole team. Thanks guys !! “
