Peak Performance, a popular Exeter gym that promises to help members improve their fitness and health, is undergoing a transformation of its own with investment of £50,000 under the management of new co-owners, Simon Almond and Mat Williams. The pair are carrying out a programme of dramatic improvements to the gym’s services and facilities to reward existing members and to attract new clients to its friendly community on Marsh Barton Trading Estate.
Work is already underway to redecorate the interior of Peak Performance, giving it a clean, fresh and updated look. Investment in the latest cardio and weight equipment and expansion of the team of personal trainers will support customers to achieve their fitness goals. Simon and Mat aim to encourage their members to take a long-term and holistic approach to their health and fitness, with the introduction of nutrition workshops; a brand new juice and smoothie bar supplying delicious and fresh fruit drinks; and the introduction of new supplement ranges that promise to match internet prices.
The most major aspect of rejuvenation work will be the installation of an additional floor to create an upstairs studio space. The extra 1,000 square feet will provide a further training area and space to provide a variety of fitness classes, including spin, boxercise, yoga, Pilates and much more – all completely free to members. Simon and Mat hope that the additional activities will prove a hit with members, encouraging them to exercise together and enjoy new activities.
New co-owner, Simon Almond, explains: “Our extensive revitalisation work will benefit all our clients, old and new, and we’re excited to welcome more members. I joined Peak Performance myself in September 2015 and although I’m not a stereotypical gym person, I felt completely welcome straight away. The gym is where I work off my stress, but I also love the social side, and when the business was put up for sale, I realised we could help other clients enjoy the same benefits of exercise that we do. I know first-hand how regular exercise can make a real difference to mental health and personal confidence and, although joining a gym might seem like a huge challenge, it could be a life changing step and our understanding team is here to help.”
“Our philosophy is to encourage people not to focus on losing weight for an event or a holiday, but to improve their health and wellbeing by making changes to their lifestyles,” agrees co-owner, Mat Williams. “The improvements we’re making for our members will be complete by the end of September and will offer our clients more variety and more support to help them live well. What makes Peak Performance unique is the friendly community that makes everyone feel welcome “We currently have 700 clients of all ages and fitness levels who enjoy spending time with us and we’re excited to be developing the updated facilities that we feel they deserve.”
Peak Performance is located on Kennford Road on Marsh Barton Trading Estate. Ideally located for people living and working in the Marsh Barton and Alphington areas of Exeter, the gym offers competitive, all-inclusive membership prices, free parking and wifi. Well maintained changing areas and secure locker storage ensure that members visiting on their way to or from work, can store their belongings conveniently.
