Partick Thistle Football Club has announced that Powerhouse Fitness, the UK’s number one home fitness equipment & commercial gym retailer will be the club’s official gym and fitness equipment partner for the next three years.
The deal, that will see state of the art equipment delivered to a newly refurbished stadium gym, will significantly improve the Firhill facilities. The new equipment which will include a range of Powerhouses own brand, BodyMax and includes commercial benches and half racks as well as a full range of strength equipment will be installed in the coming weeks and will be used by first team, Thistle Weir Academy and Partick Thistle Women’s Team players. The club will then have the choice to select new equipment each year to keep up with the changing requirements of the players.
Head of Sports Science at Partick Thistle, Junior Mendes, said: “With sports science and fitness coaching both such large parts of the modern game, getting the correct equipment and gym set up is essential. It has been great to work with Powerhouse Fitness over the last couple of months to get a bespoke set up that will work across all our teams to make our players more physically competitive and help prepare properly for match action.
“From start to finish it has been clear that the guys at Powerhouse knew exactly what they were doing and the plans we are working on will make the absolute top use of the limited space we have. The best thing though is that all these benefits aren’t theoretical or hard to see, we should start seeing the results on the pitch throughout every squad at the club.”
Powerhouse Fitness Managing Director, Ken Reeve, said: “It is fantastic to be partnering with Partick Thistle and it is going to be a really exciting three years as we work closely with the players and coaching team to get the best possible return in terms of results on the pitch.
“This deal isn’t simply a case of Powerhouse supplying fitness equipment and leaving it at that, we are looking forward to an ongoing relationship with the club as we work with the specialist coaches to keep the players at every age group at peak physical fitness.”
