The growing importance of superyacht gyms shows that cruisers and crew alike find working out improves their wellbeing while aboard. Superyacht Fitness is a newcomer to yachting, with an assortment of services. From assisting with designing and outfitting gyms to providing one-to-one fitness sessions, and coaching, all are based on your needs.
The founders, Glen Taylor (left, below) and Tim Colston (right), have more than three decades experience with fitness and superyachts. “Our goal is to offer tailored lifestyle choices that enhance and strengthen health and fitness, no matter where you are at sea,” they say in a statement. “Drawing on our many years of widespread experience across the fitness and yachting landscape, we recognize this area of the marine industry has remained unfulfilled.”
The Superyacht Fitness team has partnered with leading figures in fitness. One, for example, is James Golden, also known as the Fitness Pro. He’s been a personal trainer and coach for celebrities, royalty, athletes, and other high-profile clients. With the new company, he’ll help guide the personal-training program.
Additionally, Superyacht Fitness has partnered with the team behind the fitness app Myzone (top). Users therefore can benefit from custom at-sea workout programs, emphasizing among other things movement and strength. They have access to mental-wellness tools, too. Dave Wright, Myzone’s founder and group CEO, says the app team looks forward to further adapting it to individual requirements. “Increasing performance, enhancing mindfulness, and inspiring a positive lifestyle, alongside the growth of a dedicated community, brings a whole new dimension to successful superyachting,” he says.
Of course, the Superyacht Fitness team also will design onboard gyms and deliver specialized equipment. Taylor and Colston will leverage their personal understanding of superyacht spaces to better evaluate the possibilities aboard clients’ boats. The workout areas and dedicated gyms can be for owners, occasional charter guests, and/or crew.
