With ScottishPower moving to their prominent new city centre location in Glasgow, 3d leisure took the opportunity to revitalise the PowerClub gym they operate for the company’s staff.
The aim was to bring all the amenities of a modern gym to the conveniently located corporate fitness facility located within the head office. As well as a large range of traditional cardio and fixed resistance equipment, PowerClub wanted to include a functional training space, a weight lifting zone and a spacious studio to host classes.
PowerClub had the advantage of working with an exciting new build space. With ample light and space, but some challenges when it came to the general shape of the designated gym area, it was important to create clearly identifiable zones within this area. The layout of the gym follows a rough 'L' shape, which meant the equipment had to be cleverly distributed to avoid a cluttered look and feel.
Premium cardio equipment from the Star Trac 8 Series was installed along either side of the walkway, as you pass through reception. These are complemented with pieces from their previous facility, as well as popular HIIT Cardio equipment from the Stairmaster range including a Gauntlet and a Freeclimber.

Behind the cardio zone, a functional space was created with a custom-built Origin Performance Rig which includes storage for functional accessories and space for suspension training. Various pieces of fixed resistance equipment were brought in from our Impulse IT range.
Turning a corner, the free weight area offers users two lifting racks; an Impsule 3D Smith Machine and an Origin Half Rack. Alongside these, an Origin Fitness supplied a Dual Adjustable Pulley and Impulse Olympic Flat Bench.
Finally, the flexible studio space is equipped to offer a wide variety of classes, with small functional accessories such as Origin Fitness Rubber and Vinyl Coated Kettlebells, Sandbags, Aerobic Steps and Medicine balls.
Following the install of the new performance rig, 3d leisure brought Origin Fitness Master Trainer Claire Tracey on board to educate the staff on the versatility offered by this new piece. Covering suspension training to circuit sessions – the aim of the course was to make sure the staff could offer members a varied and safe training session.
The result is a well-defined and comprehensive fitness space which provides the gym flexibility in the types of training they offer the ScottishPower employees. Whether they come in for a half hour HIIT session or choose to train on their own – the variation in equipment and space available provides them the opportunity to try something new every time.
Our experience has been great, from the start through to minor hic-ups on our side. Due to our timescales and limited accessibility to the building during the initial phases of the project, we didn't realise we had ordered more studio equipment than the space allowed. Origin Fitness was incredibly accommodating and replaced these with a couple of pieces of equipment that were needed more urgently.
I would recommend Origin Fitness for anyone looking to complete a similar project.
