NICK SADLER Managing Director
Budding entrepreneur from a very young age, Nick is a founding Director of motive8 Ltd. Having lived in several apartment blocks in New York with their own gyms, Nick started to investigate the opportunity for similar facilities to be installed in London. To guarantee he stood out from the crowd, Nick approached developers with the idea of providing a room full commercial gym equipment that compares to the big health club chains, instead of the usual home kit – this idea very quickly lead to the start of the Gym Design department at motive8.
Over the past 9 years Nick has delivered on over 150 projects, from initial design, right through to install. With each project presenting a number of challenges and learning experiences, Nick has become a highly sought after consultant for new gym design projects in the residential, home and corporate markets.
Not wanting to leave anything to chance, Nick has also brought many skills in house (such as CAD-Computer Aided Design), to ensure that motive8 clients receive the best customer service going. If that wasn’t enough to keep Nick busy, he also makes sure he keeps at the forefront of the industry, continually identifying new products and trends coming through that can be incorporated in our schemes.
