Helping the Nation’s Gyms Stay Trim
With over 30 years of experience, we certainly know our way around the health and fitness sector; re-upholstering everything from gym pads to seating solutions and a range of medical-grade furniture.
Upholstery specialists, we offer affordable on-site gym equipment and furniture solutions with minimum disruption to businesses. A nationwide fleet of mobile workshops provides services for clients across the UK, and with a typical gym able to undergo a full refit in less than a day, owners can be confident that their equipment will be swiftly returned to operation.
Recognised for our expertise with the award for Best Gym Equipment Upholstery Specialists at the SME Northern Enterprise Awards last year, we have worked with some of the most prestigious gym operators, sporting clubs, councils and universities in the country.
One such client is Everlast Gyms, with 69 health and fitness centres located nationwide. Mark Knight, Head of Fitness Projects at Everlast Gyms, has been using our services for centres around the country for the past five years.
“We primarily use Gym Wizard’s on-site service, though also sometimes take advantage of the in-house manufacturing for large jobs and to reduce gym downtime. The service has been fantastic. The team are excellent and the quality of the workmanship is absolutely tip-top.”
Mark explains that the Covid pandemic has heightened the need to quickly repair damage to pads. It’s also meant ensuring the best materials are specified for the reupholstery work.
“Compared to other suppliers, the response time that we get from Gym Wizard, and the amount of gym downtime is greatly reduced. We’re also specifying a better quality of material that helps reduce the spread of viruses.”
Managing Director Chris Medley says he has seen a marked increase in the requirement for medical-grade vinyl and fabric: “Rips and tears in gym upholstery, however small, allow both bacteria and viruses such as Covid-19 to survive.”
“Anti-microbial fabrics and vinyls are treated with a permanent germ-free solution that destroys bacteria on contact. This helps eliminate the risk of human contamination from the material and offers peace of mind to both the gyms and their members.”
We offer a wide range of standard materials that are fire, stain and water-resistant, and can colour-match new repairs to existing equipment. A fresh new look can often be one of the best ways to catch the eye of prospective customers, with the process of repairing and re-covering gym equipment quicker and more cost-effective than it may initially appear.
“We provide customers with a range of options, with all of our pads tailor-made to suit requirements,” says Chris. “Clients are increasingly choosing two-tone colour schemes and personalised branding.”
Our sister company Medi Wizard specialises in the repair and re-upholstery of equipment in the healthcare sector. With clients ranging from NHS Trusts to physiotherapists and beauticians, we guarantee the same high-quality work and hassle-free service with minimum disruption.
