UFC Gyms has joined forces with CIVIQ to introduce 7 Elkay Vandal-resistant drinking fountain and bottle refill stations to selected clubs across Sydney and Melbourne.
The rapidly expanding fitness franchise, inspired by the training programs of UFC mixed martial arts athletes, has offered a unique workout experience for Australians.
Each facility features specialised trainers who deliver a range of fitness class that are suited to all ages. Some of these include Brazilian ju-jitsu, wrestling, body shred, pound and ninja warrior.
With a range of programs designed to break a sweat, it was crucial for UFC gyms to provide robust drinking water stations, to ensure that patrons have the appropriate amenities to stay hydrated.
Facility managers got in touch with the CIVIQ team, due to their extensive range of Elkay brand drinking water stations, suitable for busy indoor applications.
CIVIQ recommended the Elkay EZH2O Vandal-Resistant Drinking Fountain and Bottle Refill Station due to its wall-mounted design – a space-saving solution developed specially for fitness centres.
The product incorporates a heavy-duty drinking fountain basin as well as a bottle refilling dispenser, which delivers smooth, refrigerated water for cooling down patrons during and after a workout.
Featuring WaterSentry Plus filtration as standard, the unit also includes an inbuilt green ticker which counts the number of bottles saved from waste. This is a great way to encourage users to refill their drink bottles, rather than purchasing single-use plastic products.
Maz Hagemrad at UFC Gyms Australia, commented on how the products have been taken by gym members.
“The drinking water stations are a valuable addition to our fitness clubs, said Maz”.
Our members find them easy to use and are delighted to have a convenient area to refill their drinking bottles when training”.
The drinking water stations have been installed in Wetherill Park, Fountain Gate, Penrith, Blacktown, Balcatta, and Gregory Hills. They are readily available for patrons to use as means of sustaining hydration when participating in physical exercise.
CIVIQ also assisted in the supply of tough Elkay drinking fountain and bottle refill stations for UFC GYM Parramatta, which opened in Late April 2018. The brand-new facility offers the popular mixed martial arts and fitness programs to people residing in the Hills and Cumberland region.
There are further plans to implement Elkay drinking water stations for UFC gyms in Bankstown & Rockdale, which are expected to open in mid-July 2018.
