The Forest School

SPORTS Hall Transformation

Location: Berkshire, England
Training Space: Education

The Forest School, an all-boys secondary school in Winnersh, Berkshire, sought to revitalise a disused sports hall into an outstanding training space. Collaborating closely with key stakeholders, IndigoFitness created a multifunctional training facility that caters to support athletic development across diverse age groups.

The Situation

The challenge was clear—transform a dated sports hall into a versatile training space capable of supporting athletic development for students of all ages. The space needed to accommodate fundamental movement patterns, compound lifting, and functional training, providing a comprehensive solution for various sporting disciplines and lessons.

The Solution

IndigoFitness executed a meticulous plan, creating a space that exceeded expectations. Custom RAZE Shadow Series Full Racks, branded inset platforms, a bespoke rig, storage solutions and cable systems were some of the essential kit requirements strategically integrated. The facility boasts branded kit with The Forest School’s logo for a captivating aesthetic.
