Tops Fitness & Rehabilitation was established in 2005, when Steve Johnson, Jimmy Gittins and Natasha Green, saw an opportunity to develop something special. The team renovated Tops Fitness, which is the oldest serving gym in Wakefield, previously owned by Steve Johnson's father. Tops has now been part of the local community for 30 years. It is unique in having separate men's and ladies training days. They wanted a gym that could be used by able and disabled clients, in a friendly, warm and relaxed atmosphere.
The ground floor was converted into a rehabilitation centre, run by Natasha Green a physiotherapist, who had been treating Jimmy Gittins following a rugby injury which left him with an incomplete spinal cord injury. They have developed a centre of excellence, as there was a need to provide people with neurological conditions access to ongoing treatment following discharge from hospital. They have also brought alternative therapies to the centre to compliment their holistic philosophy, and provide symptomatic relief for both physiotherapy and gym clients. They aim to continue to bring new developments and therapies which they feel will benefit their clients.
They gym here provides a wide range of accessible equipment including treadmills, cross trainers, recumbent and upright bikes, stepper, rowers as well as active and passive upper and lower limb bikes and vitaglide for disabled clients. Fixed weights with wheelchair access, smiths machine and westminster pulley. They also have a large range of free weights.
Fittness instructors will demonstrate correct use of equipment and provide you with a programme tailored to your requirements. Steve is always at hand to give you advice on how to build the physique he has achieved.
