We hire fitness equipment to a range of clients - from Mangwhai Heads down to Pokeno and everywhere in between, most people assume we just hire to the domestic market but we also have a good commercial client base. As mentioned in a previous blog we hire a lot of treadmills to Podiatrists. For some reason we also hire to a few vehicle retailers (I still haven’t figured out why) we also hire to media companies, banks, finance companies, all sorts.
The Rebel Alliance
One of the more unusual commercial clients recently has been “The Rebel Alliance” a theatre group based in Auckland who have just completed a successful season at the Auckland Fringe Festival - their play “Standstill” featured 3 of the Bods in Motion treadmills as the main props - we were more than happy to help out Anders and support the Arts. Anders has written a quick summary of the play below - better still , it was so well received , Standstill is coming back for one show only (featuring our treadmills).
“3 actors on 3 treadmills for 60min. It’s a simple as that in Standstill, the critically acclaimed play by The Rebel Alliance. Inspired by true stories of doctors, hairdressers and world champion cyclists Standstill is a sharp and constantly sweaty comedy about the hopes, dreams and fears we have for our lives. The three actors struggling to keep the pace on the Bods in Motion supplied treadmills had the critics raving during the recent Auckland Fringe Festival:
“Writer, director and producer Anders Falstie-Jensen has woven an impressively-crafted, snappily-written whole out of snippets of modern life”– NZ Herald
“I have a suspicion that if Standstill debuted in Britain it would be hailed as an instant contemporary classic.” – theatrescenes.co.nz
Now, with the help of Bods in Motion The Rebel Alliance is bringing Standstill back to Auckland for one show on April the 30th at 7.30pm at TAPAC, The Auckland Performing Arts Centre, 100 Motions Road, Western Springs (Right across from the Zoo).
