Life Fitness and the Gym Rental Company extend partnership as ‘Official Gym Equipment Provider’ to The 2021 Wimbledon Championships

Life Fitness, ICG® and Hammer Strength equipment has been installed at purpose-built gyms onsite at the All England Lawn Tennis Club

Life Fitness & the Gym Rental Company first partnered with The Championships in 2019

ROSEMONT, IL – June 22, 2021 – Global fitness equipment supplier Life Fitness has been chosen to equip two gyms at the All England Lawn Tennis Club for The 2021 Wimbledon Championships.

The equipment, which has been provided by Life Fitness in partnership with the Gym Rental Company, was selected by the Championships to support the training and conditioning of the athletes during the two-week competition, which starts on Monday 28th June.

Life Fitness and the Gym Rental Company first partnered with the event in 2019. Following the cancellation of last year’s competition as a result of the pandemic, 2021 sees a return to the All England Lawn Tennis Club where the competition will form part of the government’s pilot events, with maximum capacity crowds set to return for the Finals weekend.

The onsite gyms, purpose-built for the competition, include treadmills and cross trainers from Life Fitness’ Integrity Series - all fitted with Discover SE3 HD consoles – ICG® IC6 indoor cycles and Hammer Strength dumbbells.

The Life Fitness cardio equipment used by the players also features Halo Fitness Cloud, Life Fitness’ cloud-based digital platform designed to enhance the user experience and improve asset management.

“We pride ourselves on choosing the right suppliers to ensure the players’ experience is the best that it can be, and our warm-up and cool-down facilities are central to this,” said Andrew Ambrose, General Manager of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

“Having worked with Life Fitness and the Gym Rental Company for the 2019 Championships, we had no hesitation in re-engaging with them for this year. The equipment is best-in-class, and whilst COVID has inevitably caused us some operational challenges, nothing has been too much trouble for the team, and their support throughout has been invaluable.”

Craig Cocking, Country Manager for Life Fitness UK, said: “We are proud to be able to extend our partnership with the Wimbledon Championships for this year’s event. The feedback from 2019 was very positive and the onsite gyms are an essential part of the players’ preparation and recovery during the competition; this partnership is another great example of how we can support elite athletes with the quality and range of our equipment.”

The 2021 Wimbledon Championships run from 28 June – 11 July. For more information, visit www.wimbledon.com.
