Life Fitness completes installation at the Ford Motor Company centre in Essex

Ford installs Synergy Bluesky for employees

Ford Motor Company is leading the way in supporting a fit and healthy workplace by becoming the first UK corporate customer of Life Fitness to install Synrgy Bluesky for the 2,450 Ford employees based at the Dunton Technical Centre in Basildon, Essex.

The new Life Fitness functional training system, developed specifically for outdoor use, was installed at Ford’s research and development facility in November.

Employees, including the design and engineering teams, can take part in dynamic group fitness sessions using 12 scalable body weight training stations.

Synrgy Bluesky, which offers a fun, supportive and inviting workout experience for exercisers of all abilities, has proved a popular alternative to indoor training for employees for all ages and abilities and forms the centrepiece of an engaging outdoor exercise space.

Life Fitness has also worked with Ford to install signature pieces of Life Fitness strength and cardio equipment at its indoor training facility. This includes the addition of Integrity™ Series, Row GX™, Insignia Series™ selectorized strength equipment, HD Elite and Synrgy360T training system.

Jane Hayden, EDAP learning educational adviser at Ford, said: “Providing a healthy working environment is imperative to the success of our company. The introduction of our new Synrgy Bluesky training system is a significant addition and it is already in demand by our employees.

Jane added: “As well as creating a real sense of community, the outdoor workouts it offers are fun and exhilarating, they encourage lots of social interaction and most importantly, they help people reach their fitness goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

Tom Lakeman, private account manager, Life Fitness, said: “The annual American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) research confirms that group workouts are one of the top fitness trends for 2017 and as outdoor training continues to be in huge demand, Synrgy Bluesky provides Ford with a compelling and effective fitness solution. Its versatility keeps exercisers engaged and the stations and connectors on Synrgy Bluesky provide limitless workout options and can be modified to fit varying abilities.

Tom added: “Synrgy Bluesky has also been engineered to meet outdoor safety standards and can withstand harsh weather conditions. In addition to the new-look indoor training facilities, we have provided Ford with a complete fitness solution, tailored for their needs and we look forward to supporting them further with their corporate wellness programme.”
