Hire Fitness 2013: New HQ and Showroom

It’s been a busy year for Ultim8 Fitness/Hire Fitness already and it’s only the beginning of March!

January saw the official opening of our new HQ and state-of-the-art showroom, including Ultim8 Beauty rooms, on the Slough Trading Estate (20A Buckingham Avenue, Slough Trading Estate, Slough, SL1 4QA).  The showroom allows you to view our gym quality treadmills, x-trainers, vibration-plates, exercise bikes and rowing machines before you decide to hire or buy and you can also view our commercial range of equipment.  The event was celebrated with a launch party, attended by a select group including both the Mayor of Slough, Councillor Christine Small and the MP for Slough, Fiona Mactaggart.

Then at the beginning of March, it was time for our Hire Fitness Annual Conference again; we can’t believe where the year has gone since our 2012 conference!

This event was a great success and was attended by all of our franchisees from across the UK and Ireland. It was held in a hotel in Northamptonshire and we had some fabulous speakers for the day, including motivational speaker Gavin Ingham who opened the conference with an inspiring keynote speech. We also had some fantastic suppliers there and our very own Franck Houssaye from our Yorkshire franchise topped off the day with a blinding presentation highlighting his commercial successes over the years.

Special recognition was given to two of our franchisees and awards were presented by Paul Healey, Director of Ultim8 Fitness/Hire Fitness.

FRANCHISE OF THE YEAR was awarded to Stefan Przepiora for all his hard work and success in the East London/Essex franchise and a SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD was presented to George Crawford from the Northern Ireland franchise for hitting the ground running with his new franchise.

The evening was generously hosted by Paul Healey and everyone had a fantastic time. In fact we got a few more people at dinner than we’d bargained for…….
