D2F Fitness Partners With Places Leisure to Kit Out Iconic New Leisure Centre in Surrey
When Places Leisure committed to the multi-million pound, 18 month construction project to completely redevelop its community leisure provision in Camberley, Surrey, it was preferred supplier, D2F Fitness, as the brand appointed to kit out the functional training space, three studios and an 8 court sports hall.
Occupying a third of the space allocated to the first floor gym, the functional training element of the fitness suite was required to make a significant contribution to the overall training experience.
Whilst a functional rig was requested, it needed to enhance rather than dominate the space, leaving ample space for free, independent movement, personal and small group training. Safe, secure and aesthetically pleasing storage solutions were also important to enhance the area’s visual appeal and to maximise usable floor space.
The artificial turf track running the length of the functional training space also required a versatile sled and the whole area needed to seamlessly integrate with the stretch area and promote excellent member and visual flow into the main gym space.
A diverse range of fitness equipment and flexible storage solutions were also required for two large group exercise studios and a third climate controlled studio that would house hot yoga.
In the 8-court sports hall, an in-cupboard storage solution was required to house dedicated fitness equipment that would enable the space to be used for a range of choreographed group exercise and circuit-based classes.

Functional Training Space
A bespoke D2F Tesseract rig in a gloss grey finish was erected to create a flexible central hub for functional training. To maximise the diversity of the training space, a diverse array of equipment complemented the rig, including: dumbbells, medicine balls, rubber and cast iron Kettlebells, Slam Balls, Soft Ply Boxes and a Battle Rope, supplied by US brand, TKO; a D2F Double Prowler Sled; A Concept II Rower and Concept II SkiErgo. Smaller items included: CrankIt suspension straps, BOSU, and a range of Powerbags.
Bespoke Tesseract storage solutions and a gym ball rack were also incorporated to keep equipment beautifully secure, yet highly accessible.
Group Exercise studio x2
A range of equipment supplied by D2F including: Gym Balls, D2F Studio Neoprene Dumbbells, TKO Pro Club Training Gloves and Reebok mats were securely stored on the studio floor in a range of bespoke D2F Tesseract storage units. The storage units also housed a large selection of Les Mills BodyPump barbells and weights.
Climate controlled studio (designed to house Hot Yoga)
Equipment stored and used in this space needed to be durable and provide an uncompromised performance despite the enhanced temperature. D2F installed bespoke Tesseract storage units to house a range of equipment including; Reebok Yoga mats and blocks, Fitness Mad Double Handled Pilates Rings, Bolsters and straps.
The sports hall is served by a large storage cupboard. D2F Fitness kitted out the space with a selection of bespoke, wall mounted Tesseract storage units to house a range of equipment including: Reebok mats and Speed Ropes; Fitness Mad resistance tubes, D2F Studio Neoprene Dumbbells and Powerbags.
