With over 28 years’ experience, and our extensive knowledge and skills, we can design, create and manage your commercial gym nationwide. We work with hotels, leisure centres, building owners and managers and any other commercial premises looking to add a gym to their offering, whether for their staff or customers.

We’re the specialists at getting the most out of your space. We’ll design and fit out the perfect gym for your needs, ensuring it’s sensitively designed around the other uses of the building.

We pride ourselves on offering a service that’s a step above. We see our clients as true partners and work closely with them to find the best solutions. We can also offer a tailored management service to help support your gym for years to come.

How we work

We offer an individual service, working with you to install the best gym possible. We can take you from design through to handover with ongoing management in place, or we can simply design or install your gym.

We believe in the power of good customer service, building quality working relationships with our customers so we can truly understand their needs. A key part of this is our working process, DESIGN | INSTALL | MANAGE. Find out how it works below.



Consultation and communication

We feel communication with customers is a vital part of making the project a success, therefore consultation is a constant throughout the journey. We listen carefully to your needs to deliver your vision. We pride ourselves on this collaborative way of working – it ensures that projects are carried out smoothly from conception to completion.

Our dedicated team researches the market to find the best solution for your budget, space and requirements.

Our personal training and sports science backgrounds means the equipment we choose, above all, functions efficiently to help you achieve your goals.

The goal always remains the same, to work with you to create an inspiring, unique and functional space.


Interior design and installation

Once you have chosen your design, layout and equipment, our interior designers and installation team coordinate to make your vision come to life.

Installation of flooring, audio visual entertainment, lighting, mirrors and fitness equipment is managed by us. Our commitment is to ensure efficiency and communication, resulting in a positive experience for our clients.

Case Studies

Shared Office Gym

We had input into the feel and design of the whole of this space, identifying the black equipment and industrial look as a strong aesthetic. The gym needed to be suitable for personal training and primarily functional style training, as preferred by the employees. Challenges included the consideration of a live TV recording studio, which was situated next door!

We provided 40mm rubber flooring to absorb sound as well as a black Astro Turf run for the ERA-FIT sled. Also included was a Life Fitness treadmill, Concept 2 Rower, Origin kettlebells, bench, Olympic bars and bumper plates. The bespoke storage system was provided by ERA-FIT.

We found dealing with The Gym People really positive – Guy’s been a massive help. You get the feeling he’s really bought in to what we want to achieve, so he’s gone above and beyond just advising on the gym…you feel like he’s willing to put a lot of effort in and really work with you on stuff, and he’s passionate about it.
