Panther Logistics in Perfect Sync with Balanced Body

Panther Logistics In Perfect Sync With Balanced Body

Panther Logistics’ new tailored delivery division is celebrating its first major project with US fitness equipment company Balanced Body® at

The UK’s leading two-person delivery specialist’s new Special Operations Service, which supports large-scale commercial distributions and offers bespoke client service requirements, delivered and installed 19 Allegro II Reformers at the recently opened Third Space, Wimbledon.

The installation comes at a time when Pilates is becoming increasingly popular.  Indeed, a recent UK survey by Health and Fitness Education (HFE), a leading training provider to the UK health, fitness and active leisure sector, found that 70% of people would now choose Pilates over yoga.

Samuel Scott, Panther’s Sales & Marketing Director, said:

“This was a significant undertaking that required 10 members of staff, four vans, and specialist training alongside Balanced Body.

“This was only made possible through the specialist skills and methods used by the Special Operations Service, as well as the client’s confidence in our ability to do complex jobs.

“For our latest initiative to perform so well on its first job is hugely satisfying and we are looking forward to continuing to support Balanced Body® as they extend their presence in the UK.”

Balanced Body has been delivering Pilates equipment, education and resources for more than 45 years and is also a customer of Panther’s US-based parent company AIT Worldwide Logistics. Recently Balanced Body®  established a dedicated warehouse in the UK to help improved service to clients across the territory.

Katya Ryzhova, UK Business Development Manager for Balanced Body,  trained Panther’s drivers using both training videos and personal instruction. Commenting about the installation at Third Space, Katya said:

“Third Space is one of the UK’s most well know luxury health club brands, operating 9 individual and iconic venues across London. The new Wimbledon location is the first venue in the Third Space portfolio to install Balanced Body Reformers so it was absolutely vital to our ongoing relationship that the installation went without a hitch. I am pleased to say Panther executed the installation seamlessly.

“As the popularity of Pilates Reformer continues to grow, we hope to partner with many other UK heath clubs, studios and wellness centres, supporting all their Pilates needs from equipment to education to service and maintenance. We see Panther as a key partner as we expand our influence across the UK.”

Panther’s Special Operations was launched in response to increasing demand to provide bespoke support solutions for its delivery clients. 

These new commercial opportunities allow Panther to diversify from its industry-leading two-man consumer delivery service into hospitality and wider commercial operations, offering support across the country to trade clients requiring higher volume deliveries that necessitate a more tailored individual solution, as well as increasingly complex assembly requirements.
