Technogym Global: Learn about two new facilities with wall-to-wall Technogym
November 2010 marked the opening of the second newly built Calderdale Council leisure facility – Sowerby Bridge Swimming Pool and Fitness Centre (it followed the opening of Brighouse Swimming Pool and Fitness Centre in October of last year) and in February 2010, the DiR gym chain opened its 18th club in Catalonia: DiR Tuset (first DiR club with Technogym machine and equipment).
When choosing equipment for the gym, Calderdale Council selected Technogym as a business partner to provide its latest and most expansive range to satisfy their "demanding and diverse" customer base, as well as to future-proof them for years to come.
Both clubs are fitted with Technogym equipment – 65 stations of cardio and strength at Brighouse and 45 stations at Sowerby Bridge while the DiR Tuset has Kinesis One, Vario, Pure Strength, FLEXability, and Element.
We interviewed members and staff from both Calderdale Council and DiR Tuset:.
Fitness manager (Calderdale Council) Matt Brooks says:
"I believe Technogym is years ahead of its competitors in terms of equipment innovation, design and business support. With close competition, Technogym secured the deal with the offer of marketing and sales support. It’s no longer enough to provide clients with the best equipment on the market at a competitive price. I want guarantees that my gyms will be full and that income targets will be met. This was something Technogym was confident of delivering through their partnership with YMSL. Our targets were not just met, they were blown out of the water well ahead of schedule. This has given me even greater confidence in Technogym and has built a partnership with YMSL which, all being well, will continue in the future."
Member (DiR Tuset) says:
The piece that's really impressed me is VISIOWEB, it's fantastic! To tell the truth, I actually joined the gym for this piece of equipment. No one else has it and it makes exercising so much more fun and enjoyable. Time passes more quickly and before you know it you've completed a 30-minute workout. It's absolutely brilliant!
Technical Manager (DiR Tuset) Sergio Garcia says:
Due to their originality and versatility, Kinesis One and DAP really help us to sell our personal training services. We are able to provide training to match any needs and requirements and together with the help provided by the medical zone this means that Dir Tuset has the second highest percentage of Personal Training programs per number of members in the DiR chain.
