A premium gym attracting business leaders, media figures and professional athletes has launched at The Foundry on Salford Quays.

Senior Trainer and former Ultimate Performance mentor, Matt Warner recognises the importance of hospitality and his passion for optimising performance has seen him launch the unique performance centre, The Gym Works.

The 7,000-square foot personal training and group conditioning gym space houses some of the highest quality equipment and amenities seen in a gym facility, making it truly unique in the Manchester fitness landscape.

Split over two levels, clients can enjoy a pre-workout coffee or post workout shake with riverside views on the first-floor lounge area and shake bar.

They can then shower in spa grade changing rooms while taking advantage of on-site physiotherapy and movement screening from the world-renowned health professionals at Altius Healthcare, whose clientele includes: Red Bull, Team GB and Premier League footballers.

The ground floor sees a continuation of the contemporary aesthetic, with atmospheric lighting providing a dynamic but relaxed space.  This space houses precision resistance training and functional equipment from the likes of Watson Gym Equipment, Atlantis, Life fitness and Concept 2.

This site is Salford’s newest hub for lifestyle businesses with local companies like Kettlebell Kitchen and Boda Skins, as well as Foundry Film Studios already in situ.

“Return on Investment is key to any successful service and this is something that we see as vital to the objective of The Gym Works Group. Performance is not a term exclusive to elite athletes. Connection is key when it comes to achieving positive and sustainable improvements in physical and psychological performance. We believe that attaining this is more than just achieving a transformation in body composition; it encompasses what it means to be at your best in the environments where we spend most of our time. How we perform at work, at home and in the gym, will dictate the quality, and most importantly, the longevity of results. Creating a positive culture requires a platform where clients can express themselves without intimidation, while having the choice to connect with other clients and staff in a relaxed but focussed environment.” – Matt Warner

A former elite athlete himself, Warner has spent over a decade refining his skills across disciplines involving the world of business, sport, film and television.

Partnering Warner on the project, Jamie Alaise brings added business credibility through his portfolio of exciting business interests such as: The Hive Circle, Kettlebell Kitchen and Flesh Tattoo.

This unique relationship sees Kettlebell Kitchen opening the doors of its new headquarters and restaurant next door to The Gym Works Group. It seems that this marriage of healthy food and service-driven improvements in performance will make The Gym Works Group a formidable player in the fitness industry and an asset to the business people of Manchester.
