“I facilitate the sale, acquisition and establishment of gyms throughout Australia on a daily basis and I have been purchasing fitness equipment for over 20 years ,originally as an independent operator and now as a leading franchisor in the fastest growing segment within the fitness industry. During this time I have dealt with and purchased every major commercial brand all with mixed results and service standards. When we were faced with the challenge of choosing a brand for our franchise model, it was extremely important to find a brand that we could take to our franchisee network with confidence that it was not only cost effective, functional and aesthetically pleasing but most importantly reliable. It was equally important to partner with a company (Summit Fitness Equipment) who understands our industry, the solutions we need and the issues we face. Having successfully used SportsArt cardio as an independent operator and after personally visiting the manufacturing facility and comparing this to other manufacturers we made the decision to use SportsArt as our preferred equipment supplier in all our facilities. This decision was at first met with some surprise as it was not considered mainstream however since this decision we have successfully opened over 120 clubs with SportArt and can confidently say that it was one of the best decisions we have ever made as a business and the product is second to none when comparing reliability, price, functionality and its aesthetic appeal.”
“I revel in changing the scope of ‘normal’ inside the gym by designing innovative solutions and researching new training concepts and products to better our clubs and enhance our client’s experience. I went to Summit Fitness when we were in the planning stage for our new concept club ‘Fitness First High Performance Club’, looking for a functional solution to the conventional pin loaded strength equipment. We needed a head-to-toe strength solution that provided versatility, so Summit’s team worked with us to provide that solution. We chose the Star Trac HumanSport® range as an integral part of our new High Performance Club. The high quality range was selected for our new functional zone, being cable based with removable seats enables versatility, and provides functional, dynamic movement making it ideal for the club, as it keeps the user on their feet throughout their workout which is imperative in a functional training zone.”
