Reformer studio upgrades at Sydney’s Virgin Active Pitt Street

Reformer studio upgrades at Sydney’s Virgin Active Pitt Street
January 9, 2018

Leading fitness equipment supplier Leisure Concepts recently delivered and installed 25 new Merrithew™ SPX® Max Reformer Bundles to Virgin Active Pitt Street in Sydney’s CBD.

The order also included Cardo-Tramp®s for each Reformer to allow the facility to increase programming options on offer to members.

Explaining the installation, Mark Seeto, Virgin Active’s Fitness Development Manager, stated “although these beds are more expensive than the previous beds on offer, the Merrithew™ beds are incredible quality, the bed of choice for the vast majority of our instructors including the entire team at Virgin Active and have the most professional and modern look and feel.

“We also have a great relationship with Leisure Concepts which made the whole purchasing process so much easier.”

Initial feedback has been highly positive from both the instructors and the members, with Virgin Acitve Group Exercise Manager Kate Hastings advising “our New Reformer Studio is fantastic, we have increased our capacity and now have a total of 25 Brand new Reformer Beds which look and feel great to use and we've been really impressed with them.

“The large capacity of the classes has been a huge success with our members, and we are offering nine to 10 classes per day across the week and a few at the weekends creating a total of 45 classes a week.”

The club has also launched Cardio Reformer classes using the Cardio-Tramp®, allowing members time to get used to the new Reformers and is in the process of creating a brand new cardio reformer program and format.

Hastings added “from my own experience of using and teaching on them, they are really straightforward to use, comfortable and easy to get in and out of the straps. I particularly like the new strap offering which is easy to change from the foot strap into a hand strap.

“Also the retractable system on the new beds is great, as we can easily adjust the straps for members. Overall the whole ease of using the reformer is excellent.”

Leisure Concepts has been the Australia and New Zealand distributor for Merrithew™ since 2010 and November 2016 received the Distributor Top Sales Award from Merrithew™ at its Community of Excellence Event. The Top Sales Award is awarded to the distributor who has consistently delivered the highest annual sales volume since 2012
