Equilibrium Gym and Fitness
Physique Sports were delighted to be approached to help consult and supply gym equipment in regards to the transformation of this outstanding, world class gym. The vision for the new Equilibrium Gym and Fitness was evident from the start with the ambitious management team knowing the journey that they wanted to take from making a dream, reality.
With the nations ever-increasing health conscious individuals, it was key that Equilibrium wanted to provide much more than just a gym – they wanted individuals to see their gym as an experience. Physique Sports were very strong in terms of creating a world class training environment with a wide range of gym equipment and accessories.
With Equilibrium Studio already being established since September 2009 as a Strength & Conditioning Studio, this enabled Physique Sports to advise in areas where Equilibrium could really excel and create an environment to attract all demographics.
The brief was to offer a range of equipment that would be suitable for multiple users, was easy-to-use and would withstand constant use. With being asked to design a 3D layout design, Physique Sports flourished at the opportunity to showcase exactly what they do best.
The new location had a great space, however without taking away from the previous gym layout, we added and create zones without closing any areas off, to make all users feel that exercise can be enjoyable without interruption. Physique Sports were given specific instruction to ensure that the gym would be easy to navigate and yet have enough equipment to cater to the number of members during the busy periods.
Physique Sports carried out extensive research on how the previous Equilibrium Gym operated. This enabled our design team to draw up a preliminary concept and a fitness equipment list that would not only cater to the needs of the users, but would also create a sense of space in all areas. Although a good selection of cardiovascular equipment was required, there was an emphasis on functional and free weight equipment which would allow guests to move freely around the gym and move to areas they felt comfortable training in.
After we presented the Equilibrium Management Team with several options that worked within their budget, they decided that a balance of strength and cardio equipment would be the most appropriate solution, given gym users growing awareness of the importance of a well-rounded fitness regime. It really was team work and user experience that drove this project. The gym was designed to be easy to move about in, compact, and set up in a way that allowed guests and members to move in and out of the gym easily and from one piece of equipment to another.
Physique Sports needed to organise the installation at a time when the gym area to ensure minimal disruption to staff and members. Therefore, we scheduled an early morning delivery and installation, which meant the gym was ready to use in time for opening in May 2018, much to the delight of Equilibrium management. Our team are extremely flexible and priority is providing the best standard equipment for customer satisfaction.

Equilibrium contacted Physique Sports regarding supply of potential equipment to our new larger facility. Not only did Physique come back to us quickly with competitive quotes on the kit they could supply, they also sent their Regional Sales Manager to meet with us to discuss our needs in person and offer the best advice.
They quickly gathered an understanding of our growth ambitions and set about showing us the best available kit within our budget as well as showing us finance options available to Physique customers.
The Sales Manager worked with us to take measurements on our available space and used CAD design to show our gym equipment and the options for the way we could space equipment, which was helpful in planning how much kit we could purchase without overcrowding.
Due to the competitive price we decided to use Physique Sports to kit out our cardiovascular area and we were not disappointed. They supplied a good standard of equipment, with our selected brand colours and the pre-planning paid off as we had just the right amount of kit for the space available.
The installation and delivery went well with no problems on the day we agreed and the install team taking time to set up and position the kit rather than just drop off boxes and leave us to put together, as some suppliers have done to us in the past.
Physique Sports was quick to contact us after installation and offer after sales as they wanted to checked all was in order and that we didn’t need any further assistance. Physique then went through with us potential future service plans and the procedure needed for warranty if any error occurs to any machine.
