Keep your investment in top condition

Friday, 25 November 2016 18:13:39 Europe/London

Gym RepairWhen you've invested money in commercial gym equipment for your facility, you'll want to be able to keep it in good condition.  After all, it'll be put to lots of use and keeping everything well maintained will keep your gym members happy. 

For a gym user there's nothing more frustrating than going to use a piece of kit with a big sign saying 'out of order' on it.  It will prevent them from completing their work out routine and worst case scenario, if the equipment isn't fixed promptly, could result in them leaving to join another gym.

This was once said by Benjamin Franklin.  So what was his point?

Products aren’t always created equal, take the German built BMW 7 series above versus The Brilliance BS6 made in China. Which would you rather have?

Car crash example

You'll always be able to find something you want at a cheaper price....but what's the real cost?

You may buy something cheap not realising the true value of something more expensive.  If you spend £50 on a stereo it stands to reason that it would have cost less than that to make it, cheaper components, plastic finish etc.  Make it cheap, sell it cheap....it may not last very long so throw it away and buy another cheap one...and so the cycle begins again.

The rise of the fitness industry

Saturday, 10 September 2016 14:19:00 Europe/London

Commercial gym's and the fitness industry as a whole is huge and continues to grow.  Globally, the industry generates around 80 billion US dollars every year and this figure continues to rise along with the number of health and fitness clubs that open.  Statistics show that as of 2015 there were more than 185,000 clubs around the world.  This figure had grown by over 50,000 from the year 2010.  Globally, these clubs serve over 150 million gym members.  A figure that, once again, has increased significantly from 2010 where gym member numbers were around the 128 million mark.  Just in the UK alone 1 in 7 people are members of a gym.

Step up to the plate

Wednesday, 13 July 2016 20:28:26 Europe/London

There are many manufacturers of weight plates out there but very few offer calibrated plates.  So what exactly is the difference between plates that are calibrated and those that are not?  Firstly, calibrated plates are much more accurate in respect of the weight.  Standard plates can be within around 2-4% accuracy of the stated weight.  Whilst, this may not seem much at face value for, say, a 25kg plate.  Consider a competitive powerlifter or strongman who may load 5 or 6 plates either side of a bar, this could result in a difference of + or – 12kg which is significant to say the least.

Calibrated Powerlifting and Weightlifting Plates

The act of calibrating something is to assess and adjust the precision and accuracy of something.  So to calibrate a weightlifting plate is to ensure it is as close to the stated weight as possible meaning the weight tolerance is more likely to be in the region of 10’s of grams as opposed to 100’s of grams.

Secondly, calibrated plates have been produced with a specific hole diameter.  The reason for this is to ensure the plates fit well on the bar without being either too tight or too loose.  The correct diameter should be between 50.2mm and 52mm to ensure best fit onto most bars, although the ideal diameter of the centre hole should be 50.2-50.8 the International Powerlifting Federation rule book prefers a diameter of 52mm. 

Do calibrated plates have to be certified? In short, no they don't.  Plates that have been certified have been independently tested by federations, for example the International Powerlifting Federation, to verify their accuracy.  This independent testing is costly and is a price that can be passed onto the customer making the plates much more expensive to purchase.  If you want to invest in calibrated plates look for the tolerance specification when you shop around. 

Why are calibrated plates more expensive than standard plates?  Calibrated plates undergo much research and development.  They take time to manufacture and cost significantly more than standard plates due to the processes involved and the attention to detail that needs to be taken on EVERY plate.

To purchase a set of calibrated plates means you are investing in plates that are significantly more accurate in terms of their weight, their hole diameter and which are produced with a much higher degree of skill.
