Be Fitness is a Yorkshire-based fitness club which has been fighting the fat in Barnsley for many years.

The Barnsley Be Fitness gym comes fully equipped, sporting Cardio Vascular Training Equipment, Strength Training Equipment, Multi-Station Strength Training Equipment, Life fitness circuit series, free Weight Area and dual action training area. The fitness team include staff Heather and Sam, trained to help Be Fitness’ members get the most from their workout.

However, Daniel Summerson from Be Fitness has other plans – plans to expand the business across their Yorkshire home. We were recently asked by Be Fitness to help finance their expansion into a new flagship location in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. This second site is to become a state-of-the-art fitness centre with the latest technology and gym equipment available to local members.

The equipment itself has been sourced from 2 independent lenders, and includes all the usual kit you’d expect to find in a modern gym.

By using leasing to finance their new equipment, it has allowed Be Fitness to spread the payments over a fixed period, with fixed payments over the term of contract. This means there are no sudden increases in payments, allowing them to easily budget how much they need. This also allows them to get the state-of-the-art quickly, without having to sacrifice either only have a few pieces of equipment they can afford, or getting a lot of lower-quality kit. Even better for the gym, by paying for their leasing contract through their operational expenditure, they can offset the total cost against their tax bill.

Daniel told us:

I am delighted with the speed and efficiency that Johnson Reed have helped us get the finance we need. I’m really looking forward to seeing the new equipment in our gym, and we look forward to working with Johnson Reed when we expand onto our third site!
