Friday 15th April saw the official opening of the new Waitrose Sports
and Leisure Centre; the gym facility at the headquarters of Waitrose John Lewis which has been fully equipped with the latest CYBEX equipment and is another example of the excellent partnership between CYBEX and Nuffield Health.
Located in Berkshire, the new gymnasium has been opened by Waitrose John Lewis in partnership with Nuffield Proactive Health, the UK’s leading independent healthcare provider. CYBEX installed a number of cardiovascular pieces chosen from the high end commercial equipment range, as part of the contract worth over £35,000, which included treadmills from the 445T series, the revolutionary non elliptical 750AT Arc Trainer and a number of 750C upright cycles.
CYBEX also equipped the facility with strength training apparatus, including a Bravo Functional Trainer and three pieces from the VR1 Duals strength line. Designed to offer its users a high quality training experience that is easily accessible, the VR1 range has been created by CYBEX to provide fitness equipment with a compact floor footprint – the VR1 Duals series of products has further extended this principle, by using multi-functional mechanisms to create two exercises in one machine.
Alan Ellis, key account manager for CYBEX UK, is delighted to see the completion of the latest install: “The range of equipment chosen by Waitrose John Lewis is designed to provide the users with a full range of exercises whilst using up minimal floor space. This way, the new fitness facilities ensure that the users have access to as wider range of strength and cardio equipment as is possible, allowing them to benefit from a full workout as well as the quality of the CYBEX equipment”.
Clare Sanders, account director for Corporate Wellbeing at Nuffield Health
added, “CYBEX was able to help us maximise the small space available to provide Waitrose with a fully functional gym. The dual action equipment is ideal for small spaces and with the Bravo
Trainer alongside we are able to ensure that staff have a large variety of different exercises they can do with minimal amount of machines. The team at CYBEX worked with us to create 3D images ensuring that we could create excitement on the site prior to opening. This has been another successful partnership between Nuffield Health and CYBEX.”
