The University of Bath enhances sports facilities with £150,000 Matrix Fitness equipment upgrade

Leading UK university the University of Bath is steeped in a history of sporting excellence, with Team Bath committed to offering its students a wealth of sporting opportunities and access to world-class facilities.

At the heart of the fitness offering is the Team Bath Gym & Fitness Centre – known as Gym 1 – a spacious 1,536sq m facility that’s open to members seven-days-a-week. There is also a dedicated High-Performance Gym for competitive athletes.

The longstanding relationship between the University and Matrix Fitness began in 2015 with an installation of indoor bikes and has grown successfully ever since.

Over the years, Matrix has helped the team complete a comprehensive gym refurbishment involving over 100 pieces of equipment and just recently, in January 2022, on a £150,000 equipment upgrade which introduced the latest Matrix cardio equipment and a new HIIT functional training area.

Miles Peyton, head of commercial sales, Team Bath explains: “Currently, both of our gyms are powered by Matrix, including our cardio, resistance machines and our racks.

“Unlike some other suppliers I’ve worked with, Matrix has excelled in customer service. It’s simply second to none. The team have always kept their promises, exceeded expectations, responded rapidly to any needs we’ve had and kept us informed throughout the entire process, from the inception of ideas through to opening day and beyond.”

“Matrix is not just an equipment supplier, we work as a partnership to keep our offering a step ahead.

“We were even invited to test the new cardio range out before it was even on the market and understandably, our gym equipment takes a hammering, so having a team we trust, and equipment we know is best-in-class, is essential.”

This major refresh and recharge of the University’s workout spaces has seen over a third of the equipment in Gym 1 upgraded. The installation includes the brand-new slat-belt Matrix Performance Plus Treadmill with Touch XL Console.

“We chose to go with slat-belt treadmills due to their comfort, design and the scientific evidence presented that highlights the stress reduction on joints,” Peyton adds.

“The Matrix Performance cardio range is unmatched, they look smart, the speed was faster than traditional treads and the incline was higher than the standard 15 per cent. That, and the connectivity helps our members strain their way with access to their favourite fitness apps and in-built workouts.”

All of the equipment comes with wireless charging, USB ports and large screens with a user-friendly, app-based interface, giving members access to all their favourite third-party apps with just a touch.

Tony Vaughan, sector specialist - education at Matrix, added: “The University of Bath is at the pinnacle of sporting excellence and needs to constantly stay at the forefront of health and fitness innovations in order to provide its students, staff and members with world-class facilities.

“We’ve worked with The University of Bath for many years, and have witnessed first-hand their fantastic drive and motivation to innovate and evolve in order to provide the best. We’re so pleased to have brought this exciting upgrade of cardio equipment to life and look forward to supporting them in the years to come.”

The refurbished Gym 1 opened its doors in January 2022.
