Revolution Personal Training Studios Ltd London, Islington - industry leaders of fitness, lifestyle and nutritional guidance.

Revolution Personal Training Studios was launched in 2005 by brothers Rob and John Grim and their close friend Giuseppe Di Credico. They set up their first gym here in the prestigious Business Design Centre in Angel, Islington. All three directors had previously worked at a large gym chain and become hungry for a project of their own. They felt disillusioned that people were buying memberships for gyms but not attending regularly, so they were inspired to develop a different approach to motivate clients to achieve their goals.

The atmosphere the guys had created in the studio was truly unique. They wanted to avoid the clinical feel that some other gyms have, and make the studio a fun and relaxed place to be. There's a special camaraderie between trainers and clients that makes the style of personal training inspirational. To this day, their customers still can’t believe the positivity and sense of achievement they experience in their Revolution PTS sessions.

By the end of 2007, Rob, John and Giuseppe were offering their customers 12 week transformation programmes with astounding results. By 2009 they had doubled their working space, raised their number of personal trainers to 17, and were clocking up 400 hours of personal training each week. Revolution PTS was producing results that would change the lives of thousands of clients, and indeed the face of the personal training industry in the UK.

Their dream to open another studio in Central London was fulfilled this year, with the opening of Bury Street, and we at CYC are proud to have played a major part in this continuing success story. 

The Brief: 

Following our installation at the new Bury Street branch, CYC was given the fantastic opportunity to revamp and kit out the Angel Islington facility with some of the most exciting and innovative products on the market.

The Result: 

We installed a 4 panel Training Wall system, with a range of functional tools, and a bespoke height Grappler rope machine, adjusted to fit the studio's low ceiling. Rubber flooring, with a thickness of 40mm, was selected for the free weights area in stunning black and red to match Revolution's colour scheme. We added integrated oak lifting platforms between the two squat racks, to create two dead lifting areas, and introduced a custom lateral pulldown/low row combination resistance machine, also in black and red with the Revolution logo. The ingenious Tire Flip180 also took up residence in the studio.

A smart bespoke storage solution was designed and manufactured specially to fit within an alcove, maximising all available space within the studio. This is just perfect for the Reebok Dynamax balls and the awesome NuFit Nubells, ranging from 5lb to 40lb in weight, along with 2 additional bars for the versatile Nubells to be attached to.
