New Bishopsgate gym unveils first sky-high Versaclimber studio
Versaclimber UK has marked its third partnership with boutique gym chain, BXR, with the unveiling of its latest site in Bishopsgate and the launch of its fourth dedicated Versaclimber Studio.
Officially launching on the 7th of March 2022, and located on the 25th floor of a skyscraper in the heart of Bishopsgate, the Versaclimber Studio is set to provide gym-goers with a total body workout with the installation of 32 new Versaclimber TS machines; the latest model to be released in the collection.
This latest venture marks Versaclimber’s third group training class to be found in the UK, as interest in group workouts, post-pandemic, continue to soar with an estimated 4.86million people participating in the sessions every week, according to a survey by EMD UK (Exercise Movement & Dance Partnership UK).
Classes will run each week from Monday – Saturday, and will be hosted by experienced Versaclimber users with visitors able to book in advance.
Visitors to the new Versaclimber Studio can choose from different classes, such as the Climb to the Beat class, which introduces the Versaclimber and its ability to provide a safe, full-body workout.
Commenting on the launch and its ongoing partnership with BXR, Neil Kelford, managing director of Versaclimber UK, said:
“We’re delighted to see the popularity of Versaclimber classes continue to grow across the UK, which has led to the creation of a dedicated studio for our machines in such a unique location in Bishopsgate.
“The new interactive Versaclimber TS is designed with group workouts in mind and we’re confident that users will appreciate the machine’s newest capabilities including an option for users to log workout and challenge other climbers.
“The environment of where you train can have a huge impact on your session and, equally, how you feel throughout. That’s why we’re excited to have teamed up again with BXR to create another engaging and motivating space that will no doubt inspire members to push outside their comfort zone in a thriving and inspiring space.”
Alex Nicholl, director at Sweat by BXR, added:
“We’ve built our signature class concept around the Versaclimber and it’s become our leading, most popular class – a true testament to the product and the fitness benefits that come with Versa-Training.
“Our new City location, our 4th Versaclimber studio (Canary Wharf, Marylebone, Doha and Qatar being our other locations) is now not only the biggest studio in Europe but now the tallest at 500ft, bringing a whole new experience to training on a Versaclimber.”
