Gym Marine is delighted to have nominated Saltlick Fitness as their crew wellbeing partner. This partnership will offer Saltlick Fitness’ well established, tried and tested crew fitness programmes as an optional extra to any yacht or crew working with Gym Marine on a new gym project, as well as those with existing Gym Marine-designed facilities and equipment.
Like Gym Marine, Saltlick Fitness was founded by ex-yacht crew who have years of experience working in health and fitness environments onboard superyachts.
“It is impossible for anyone who hasn’t worked at sea as yacht crew to understand just how challenging it can be to maintain a healthy physical routine during a busy season. This partnership between Gym Marine’s experienced team of gym designers and Saltlick’s crew fitness experts is the closest thing to a perfect match for yachts looking to invest in reducing turnover and improving crew wellbeing.” – Ed Thomas, Managing Director, Gym Marine.
“Saltlick are very excited to be given the opportunity to be partnered with the superyacht industry’s leading gym designers, Gym Marine. Understanding the need for crew to keep fit and healthy has always been at the forefront of Saltlick’s thoughts, and with Gym marine now in our corner yacht crew physical training can become something that everyone can get involved in!” – Tom Jones, Co-Founder of Saltlick Fitness.
Saltlick Fitness was founded by Tom Jones and Christie Surveson, two personal trainers currently working in the superyacht industry. The company provides both vessel specific group programmes for crew as well as customised individual programmes and online coaching to ensure people reach their goals.
The company was established to help those in the yachting industry maintain a healthy mind and body. The work/wellness ratio of life in yachting can be quite hard to maintain, with constantly changing of time zones, long hours, minimal down time, and space and equipment at a premium.
Being ‘yachties’ themselves, the team at Saltlick understands these factors and wants to both teach and inform fellow crew about how to maintain a healthy, well-balanced life onboard whilst understanding the importance of mental and physical health.
Practically, this will mean Gym Marine’s ongoing crew gym designs will be enhanced through sense checking by experienced yacht crew; and can be delivered along with bespoke individual and small-group training programmes delivered via a dedicated application which is now available to crew on both personal and shared devices.
We will look to develop this partnership, adding in more content and dedicated programmes around specialist equipment in the very near future. Watch this space!
