Langleys Country Club Case Study

Langleys Country Club in North Wales is a luxury fitness facility encapsuled within the larger Aberconwy Resort & Spa complex. Through the variety of services on offer within the resort, Langleys had to be able to cater to a variety of customers, while also fulfilling their internal need to modernise.


Objective

When the time came to refurbish their existing gym facilities, Origin Fitness was employed to create a more spacious feel within their existing facility, while modernising and expanding their equipment offering so that any member could complete a full body workout. The space would be used by PT’s and their clients, group classes as well as individual members of the public coming for an individual workout. Both the equipment and the layout would have to accommodate all these users at once.

Equipment

The equipment had to be advanced enough to be adjustable to any member, while also remaining suitable for PT supervised sessions- a service Langleys is proud to offer. Origin Fitness supplied the Impulse R700 range and the popular Concept2 rower to fulfill the site’s CV needs, while focusing on the Impulse IT range for the strength zone. Keeping the equipment within agreed ranges has allowed the site to keep a uniform look across the room which has helped with making the room feel more spacious and unified.

The introduction of a freeweight zone has allowed the gym to tap in to the booming weight lifting market, both amateur and experienced, and has given the customers a good reason to spend time with the staff in order to get properly trained on form and programming.



Design

Greg has been excellent from start to finish. The chosen layout was the first one he presented to us after the initial brief we gave him in terms of what equipment we wanted to achieve our goal

The aim was to create more space within the existing designated rooms, while also increasing the range of equipment to allow more people to train more intensely. After sitting down with the project manager Jonathan Lyall, account manager Greg Walker drew up a plan on how he planned on achieving the desired space and variety.

By discussing the options available to them, both in terms of equipment as well as layout changes, an agreed design was created using 3D software for the customer to peruse and sign off on.

Outcome

Next to a modern, good looking and well functioning gym, Langleys Country Club has also benefited from a full day’s training from the Origin Fitness master trainer Claire Tracey. Using this resource, the PT’s on site are fully aware of all the options that come with the newly installed equipment and the advantages these will offer their customers.

Langleys Country Club have stated that the new modern kit has prompted more customers to make use of the PT and induction services on site, in turn impacting positively on retention.

Testimonial

The members can not fault the equipment at all its well built, looks great and the biomechanics are perfect for any user. It has also allowed us to spend more time looking after the customer and coaching them in the gym, with things like squats deadlifts and bench press etc… which will help us with retention. We have seen a huge influx of new members since the refurb with far more younger people as well as people who want a serious facility to train.
We really enjoyed the experience of working with Origin Fitness and we are looking at our next project on the south coast of England with them. We would highly recommend Origin Fitness to anyone.
