Strength & CONDITIONING
Updated Strength and Conditioning Facility for RGS Guildford
As always when approaching a gym design, we looked to make the decision about flooring first. To protect the subfloor and reduce noise and vibrations in neighboring rooms, we supplied 32mm duraTRAIN tiles. DuraTRAIN is an industry leading rubber gym tile, the result of extensive testing, engineering, and a patented three-stage compression molding process. The exceptional quality of these tiles means that they are ideal in strength training and Olympic lifting areas, and for RGS that meant that additional freestanding platforms were no longer required, which instantly increased the floor space available. Four custom branded Graphix platforms were inset into the duraTRAIN to provide dedicated lifting areas, whilst maintaining a seamless finish on the floor.
On top of the platforms, four Zenith series power racks were installed, linked together with three bar wings for additional training functionality. The racks, along with the lifting platforms, provided eight lifting stations in total, and with grappler attachments, gym ball storage and dip attachments, delivered a diverse training station along one side of the training space. The racks were finished with custom branded joining plates bearing the RGS logo.
On the opposite side of the gym is a Shadow series storage unit holding the RAZE PU dumbbells, slam balls, and med balls. Incorporated into the storage unit structure is a lat pull down/low row combo at one end, and a dual pulley at the other. Integrating all these elements into one unit is what really allowed us to massively increase the flexible free floor space available to the coaches, making sessions and classes that much easier to plan and run. Additionally, and to ensure the floor space was completely clear of clutter of any kind, we supplied a wall fixed unit to store all mats, power bands, lifting belts, and speed ropes.
Infront of the storage unit are two adjustable benches, finished with the schools’ colour scheme and featuring an embroidered logo on the upholstery. Posterior chain exercises are fully covered with the supply of glute ham and reverse hyper benches. Other equipment supplied to provide a wide and diverse range training options were Shadow series Olympic bars, Zenith series bumper plates, and RAZE stackable plyo boxes.
