Powerhouse Fitness is a trading name of Laidir Leisure Ltd, a Private Limited Company Registered in Scotland (No.SC71827).
Laidir Leisure Limited was established in 1980 by David P. Webster OBE. The word “Laidir” is Scottish Gaelic for “Strength”, which is very fitting for David, as the Scottish Highland Games, strength training and weightlifting continue to be his greatest passion. David is a world renowned historian of weightlifting, strength sports and highland games, and has been involved in sport and fitness since the 1940’s. He is author of over 40 books, is a world record holder, and was awarded an OBE for services to sport from Her Majesty the Queen at a ceremony in Buckingham Palace in 1995.
At 84 years of age, after a lifetime dedicated to sport and “physical culture”, David has been appointed President of the Commonwealth Games Committee for Scotland and looks forward to being Host President when then Games come to Glasgow in 2014.
In 1983 David’s son Nigel joined the business and in 1986 David junior joined him. In 1986 the company adopted the trading name ‘Powerhouse Fitness’.
In 1987, Powerhouse Fitness launched their first fitness store in Glasgow. In the early years, the company focused on commercial fitness products for sports clubs and gyms, while building a retail base in Glasgow. Powerhouse Fitness has gone from strength to strength, and with 12 shops now has the greatest national network of Specialist Fitness Stores in the UK
Delivery Service - *** IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT LARGE ITEMS ***

Our delivery does not include the driver taking your purchase upstairs internally or externally. Drivers are not insured to enter your property. Our one man delivery service may require assistance from you to assist or move the goods from the drop off point into your home.
Please do not ask the delivery driver to lift heavy items without sufficient manpower, as this will often be in breach of Health & Safety legislation.
Powerhouse Fitness use a number of couriers for delivery of 'large items'. Delivery often only includes delivery to the kerbside immediately adjacent to the couriers vehicle. Most couriers regard inside delivery as an extra service and as such this is not included with all delivery options. It may be necessary for you to assist or move merchandise into your home. This is especially relevant if you live in a block of flats as couriers will only deliver to the ground floor entrance to the block.
Where possible, we recommend paying for two man delivery and installation on large items.
