Advanced Engineering Techniques are pleased to announce details of their exciting partnership with Firehouse Fitness, the fastest growing independent fitness brand in South Yorkshire.
Operating over three sites – Halfway, Millhouses & Hillsborough – Firehouse Fitness offers gyms that combine the rigour and teamwork of firefighter training, with the warmth and family values of a crew.
AET’s customer account lead, Richard Walsh was the instigator for the project, and explored a number of options in the area before deciding on Firehouse. ‘I was immediately struck with their professional approach and inclusive ethos. They were able to offer us two packages and have worked seamlessly with our HR department to make sure everyone has been fully integrated into the scheme’
The company has been prioritising its employee benefits package for some time, and subsidised gym membership perfectly complements the existing health insurance schemes with Westfield and Vitality.
Richard continued, ‘We’re committed to creating a healthy, happy workforce and recognise that our staff are our greatest asset. Businesses introduce wellbeing initiatives because they want to do the right thing by their employees and contribute to supporting happier lives. We at AET recognise that to have a successful workforce, better longevity, assisted through good wellbeing, is a significant factor in the long-term success of the business. Take-up of the scheme has been good, with around 10% of our staff members signing up at one of the gyms, but we’re hoping to reach our target of 30% enrolment by the Autumn’
Firehouse Fitness and AET are offering two packages. Gym membership starts at just £10/month, and just £20/month for access to the gyms plus over 100 fitness classes per week.
