About our company
Zest Home Fitness is the UK’s leading specialist mini exercise bike supplier. Launched in March 2013 by two long-term friends, George Pirintzi and Michael Brooks-Wadham, our aim is to make it easier for people to keep fit and healthy.
But the seed of the business was born out of near-tragedy some months earlier in July 2011 when George, although outwardly fit and healthy, nearly collapsed and was rushed to Kings College Hospital in south London by ambulance for an emergency angioplasty to widen a near-fatal narrowing of an artery in his heart.
In the months following, George sought ways to build up his health again and discovered a little-known machine – the mini exercise bike. Finding this to be an excellent, convenient and successful method of recuperating, he realised that this was also an effective way to enable millions of people to keep themselves fit and healthy, to lower their cholesterol and to lose weight.
So together with Michael, they researched scores of machines available around the world to find the best-made, most effective and most reliable ones and created
Zest Home Fitness to bring these to the wider public.
We sincerely hope that you will buy a mini exercise bike from us to help you and your family stay fit and healthy, and as we love to hear our customers’ success stories, be sure to send us an email letting us know how you get on.
With best wishes
George and Michael
