Your Space Pontefract (formerly Fitness Flex), hosted a grand open evening in celebration of its new, state-of-the-art gym and re-brand.
The BPL-operated facility has invested over £140k to create its new brand Your Space… bringing a local, fun and friendly vibe to the centre with customer service at the forefront of everything they do.
In addition, over £230,000 has been spent on innovative, ultra-modern fitness equipment with an extensive range of Technogym apparatus being installed throughout the site with equipment catering for all abilities and areas of fitness. Your Space now provides a selection of IFI kit, tailored to support disabled members.
More fun and friendly group sessions are now taking place on the gym floor based on customer demands and requests and other facilities include a physiotherapy provision, sauna, deluxe changing rooms, upgraded studio provisions and the installation of the popular Omnia rig. The site has installed the new ‘Skill’ line provided by Technogym which is a unique solution offering a huge variety of workout routines to train the body’s energy systems and turn members into peak performers. The new equipment is supported by MyWellness which allows members to digitally achieve their sport, fitness and health goals.
Fitness Supervisor at Pontefract, Rae Cooper, says ''Since the re-launch as Your Space, there has been a massive leap forward from members experimenting with equipment they have never used before, showing huge interest in all the fantastic new functional space.''
Their motto clearly states 'We are a local gym, for local people’ with staff always striving to help every member achieve their personal goals, long and short-term targets.
Rae adds, ''Customers are embracing the innovative Omnia rig which we have positioned on the gym floor and the classes which we have started running have been at full capacity with amazing feedback.
''Technogym have worked wonders with assisting us with the new gym floor layout; space has been utilised very effectively, creating a more open plan approach to the gym, making it feel much more inclusive and accessible for all member populations.''
The rebrand has allowed Your Space to highlight their USP’s which are stated below:-
-Your Space offers a number of varied membership packages to suit every individual.
-Price for Life – the price each member pays will remain the same throughout their membership contract.
-Not for profit – profits are reinvested back into the facilities.
And the success doesn't stop there – Your Space now works in conjunction with New College Pontefract and has for over 5 years worked in partnership with the Castleford Tigers Rugby League Club.
Commercial manager of Cas Tigers, Craig Jeffels said: "Castleford Tigers are proud of the great relationship we have with Your Space Pontefract, and the team at the gym. All the players young and old, off-field staff and Tigers Trust use the facility on a regular basis, with our first team recovery and rehabilitation sessions all held at the site.
"The new facilities are an added bonus for ourselves, as we have access to all the top equipment in a ultra-modern surrounding.
"As a professional rugby league team, the physical condition of our players is paramount and having the use of this facility generally at any time we require, is priceless to us. All the staff and team at the gym are very welcoming and are on first name terms with all the boys now, which is great to see.
"I would personally like to thank Tom Desborough for his assistance over the past year or so that I have been with the club. I knew from our first meeting that the partnership was one I wished to retain, and one that we could build on again in 2019. Hopefully, we will be working alongside Your Space for a long time to come.’'
Your Space transformations will be appearing throughout 2019 and 2020 across BPL sites.
