Tayside Fire and Rescue selected Anytime Leisure to design and install a fitness suite which was both suitable for a wide range of user abilities and also able to give a comprehensive training environment at the performance end of the spectrum. It was a priority for the Tayside Fire and Rescue that the facility was delivered within budget, and Anytime Leisure’s ability to adapt the product offering and recommend budget options in certain areas ensured this was possible.
One of the priority items was the Arc Trainer which is a favourite for cardio training amongst the fire fighters. To make space in the budget for this premium Cybex machine, Anytime Leisure installed more cost effective Impulse Fitness strength equipment for a reliable and high performing set of machines with a reasonable price tag. This space is used by both male and female fire fighters as well as members of the public, so ensuring the space was multi functional and accommodating was a key design requirement.
“We have been using the Anytime Leisure and Cybex equipment for the last three years at least. Anytime Leisure were able to provide an example layout for the latest installation at which was only completed at the end of last year to let us visualise the installation." - Jane Murray, Facilities Manager
"We have Cybex equipment on our five full time Fire Stations – supporting not just our own staff, but we also have personnel in from Tayside Police who use the equipment. I would say that the equipment throughout our sites is probably used over 200 staff. We chose this equipment Cybex because of the quality of the product and because of its wide use in America for firefighter training. Before purchasing, Anytime Leisure gave us an Arc Trainer on trial which was extremely well received." - Jane Murray, Facilities Manager
"I particularly liked the information on the Cybex Products which was available online and whilst not cheap, I consider that Cybex gives us best value for money in that it is virtually maintenance free and is a quality commercial product." - Jane Murray, Facilities Manager
