Just how do you create a unique, boutique-style gym with state-of-the-art equipment, the funkiest fitness classes and the most affordable monthly fee? The answers lie with ambitious brothers Paul and David Pearson of the impressive North East collective OneGym, who opened their first facility in Bishop Auckland in 2012.
OneGym brings a fresh approach to gym membership through its ethos that everyone should be able to access top of the range facilities to get fit and healthy without paying the earth. Managing Director Paul explains:
“We can keep membership costs down by cutting out all the added frills that gym users don’t necessarily want, but end up paying for anyway elsewhere. We offer the top quality equipment, fabulous classes and changing facilities that people expect, and tailor the way we operate precisely to meet users’ needs. A streamlined approach and clear focus on doing the simple things brilliantly enable us to deliver an experience that is second to none.”
With its enviable range of innovative equipment, functional training area, calisthenics playground, varied classes and nurturing of the novices, OneGym members love the simple joining process, flexible opening times and are “amazed at the high quality of kit for the low monthly fee.” OneGym offers a wonderfully appealing fitness concept at the most convenient locations. Thriving facilities in Bishop Auckland, Newton Aycliffe, Redcar and Teesside make up the inspiring OneGym empire, and when members join their local OneGym they can access all other OneGym locations at no additional cost.
Jonathan Luke, senior portfolio executive at NEL Fund Managers, praised OneGym for its ideal model;
“OneGym has proved successful in an environment where attracting consumers’ disposable income has been a real challenge for anyone in the leisure industry.”
At Boutique gyms, we are delighted to have supplied a diverse range of strength and functional training equipment to OneGym, and to have played a part in their exciting story. We wish Paul, David and everyone at OneGym all the very best with their ever flourishing brand.
