Leyton Orient F.C.
Location: London, England
Training Space: Elite Sport
Consultation, Design, Installation: IndigoFitness revitalises Leyton Orient’s training space, creating a modern strength and conditioning facility. Customised, well planned, and ready for a successful season.
Newly promoted Leyton Orient Football Club sought to upgrade their training facility. IndigoFitness were challenged to transform an old squash court into a contemporary strength and conditioning centre that aligns with the club’s ambitions.
IndigoFitness took charge from gym design consultation right through to installation. Working closely with Jack Manuel, Head of Sports Science. & Ketan Patel, Head of Performance, the Indigo team designed a modern training facility, paying attention to every detail. Custom branding enhanced the space, while bespoke storage solutions and integrated equipment like RAZE Shadow Series Half Racks, mid-thigh pull system, and a smith machine ensured efficiency without compromising floor space.
The flooring solutions consisted of EnduraTile 30mm, a durable rubber gym floor tile ideal for strength areas where weights are being dropped. With the addition of Turflex Premium, a statement turf track boasting Leyton Orient F.C. branding, markings and numbers for training purposes. At the end of the track is the RAZE Throw Wall for dynamic movements using slam balls and other variations.
The result is an outstanding strength and conditioning facility – a perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality. Leyton Orient now boasts a modern training space that aligns with their aspirations. We wish Leyton Orient F.C. all the best with the up coming season and can’t wait to see the players using their new strength and conditioning facility!
“The new training space has enabled us to improve buy-in from the players and create an environment that players want to work in.
It’s also enabled us to improve our delivery and increase our performance insights.”

What challenges were IndigoFitness able to help you overcome?
The main challenge we had with the project was utilising space within the gym environment but also having all the equipment we need in the space. Indigo’s custom design allowed us to build a multi-purpose rack to fit in the space, utilising storage to minimise equipment on the gym floor but being able to have a great work space.
How was the process of working with IndigoFitness?
The process has been fantastic, working with Ross over multiple calls to make sure the final design included everything we needed and more. The installation was quick and completed to a high standard.
How will this new training space impact Leyton Orient?
The new training space has enabled us to improve buy-in from the players and create an environment that players want to work in. It’s also enabled us to improve our delivery and increase our performance insights.
