Despite Brexit ECW Races Ahead as it Rebrands to High Five Health Promotion

Paul Kienstra, CEO, High Five Health Promotion, commented; “Our Group strategy is to be the best European corporate fitness and wellbeing provider, with the UK remaining an integral part of our growth plans. Today we’re pleased to operate across Europe, even in the face of Brexit, helping people to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

“Operating under a single brand will enable us to deliver a stronger message to the UK market. For us, the UK market holds great potential, as it’s a considerable size which remains largely untapped with only a few key players. Our expansion in the UK increases choice, boosts industry competition, and allows clients to evaluate the quality and value for money offered by their current fitness and wellbeing service providers.”

Sara Burton, National Soft Services Manager, Telefonica UK Limited, commented; “High Five have been our partners in delivering the Gym & Welfare facilities at our Head Office since it reopened seven years ago, following a full refurbishment. The whole team’s passion, dedication, pro-active approach has been inspirational both for our members, and the team working with them on the ground.

“The team are wholly professional, approachable, happy to work with our Health & Wellbeing team, listen to ideas for promotion and changes, keep the place exciting by offering varying classes and challenges, all in all a true partner in every sense of the word.”

Importantly, UK customers will be taken care of by High Five’s Hatfield-based offices. This is designed to ensure the smooth continuation of a dynamic, efficient and high quality service at a local level combined with a Group commitment to offer a transparent, tailored, personalised and consistent service to all clients.
