Ricky Hatton's Gym

Bose Packs Plenty of Punch at Boxing Champ's Gym!

Unique Systems, Pro Partner of Bose, has installed a state of the art Bose sound system in a new gym in Hyde, Manchester. The gym is owned by boxer, Ricky Hatton.

Light welterweight boxing champion Hatton and his team, led by his dad, Ray Hatton, have spent eight months developing the former printworks to create a 1,000 sq m Health and Fitness Centre which includes a first floor boxing studio with two boxing rings, plus an 85 station gym, two fitness studios, reception and refreshment area, shop, sauna and changing facilities, all on the ground floor.

Bose FreeSpace Loudspeakers, ranging from discreet flushmount speakers in the corridors and changing rooms, to six DS100s in the boxing studio, create just the right atmosphere throughout the centre, which has been developed by Ricky Hatton to enable him to put something back into the community where he grew up. The Centre will also become his training base when in the UK, and will enable him to continue his involvement in boxing when he eventually retires from international fights.

For such a high profile centre, the fit out had to be of exceptionally high quality and the Bose sound system was on the list from the outset. Each of the areas has both CD and iPod input via Cloud mixers, allow instructors to select music for fitness sessions.

"Bose were pleased to work with Unique, their partners for the last 15 years who as always ensured that our high standards were maintained throughout the installation"
