As a double Olympic snowboarder, World Cup competitor and eight times UK champion, Ben Kilner knows a thing or two about fitness.
Now he’s bringing that dedication and expertise to Banchory with his superb new fitness hub called The Unit Gym & Fitness. The spacious facilities have something for everybody – from the fitness beginner who can’t see their own toes let alone touch them, to the mums, and all the way to the highly motivated runner or elite athlete.
Inside, you’ll find a huge open space with a great selection of the latest cardio equipment, a sprint track, free weights area and state-of-the-art cable resistance machines for a top-to-toe workout. The Unit’s studio space hosts a programme of popular classes including Jazzercise, pilates and spin bike sessions which provide a fun way to exercise with friends. There are four fully qualified personal trainers on hand for those who want to work towards their own fitness goals.
The Unit, though, is much more than a gym. Three days a week, there’s a crèche so the kids can have fun while you work out, as well as a fantastic health bar with oodles of healthy snacks and drinks so you can chill out and catch up with friends. There’s a physiotherapy service on site and a hair and beauty salon for a bit of post-exercise pampering. The Unit even has a shop, so it’s like a really friendly and miraculously unintimidating superstore for health and wellness.
Ben explained, ‘The Unit is a family-run fitness centre and our members are part of the family too. We want everyone to feel comfortable when they come here and feel fitter when they leave!’
