Transforming your functional training area

There’s no escaping the fact that a certain amount of space is needed to allow members to safely participate in group training sessions. However, it doesn’t matter how much space you have, it’s what you do with that space that counts. That’s why when it comes to transforming your functional training area, we recommend talking to the experts.

P4P Tooting BeforeAfterTime after time we visit clubs and see functional training rigs installed right in the middle of the gym floor. If you have the luxury of space then that’s great but more often than not rigs are surrounded with other equipment and offer no real space for members to workout effectively or safely.

As well as the obvious safety issues, rigs like this are dominant feature of the gym floor and quite often become an intimidating piece of equipment for members. This doesn’t have to be the case, and if you’re prepared to think outside the box and invest a little more up front then the end result could and should be more rewarding for you and for your members.

In recent years we’ve developed rigs of all different shapes and sizes to use the available space as effectively as possible. It’s not just about utilising space in the best possible way. Bespoke or modular rigs like Tesseract give you the opportunity to develop a rig that will allow you to support the exercise programmes that you want to run in your gym and for the class sizes that you want to offer. For example if you want to offer suspension training five times a week for a class size of up to eight people, then you can make sure that your rig will support this objective.

On the other hand, if you have a very limited amount of space but still want to offer a piece of equipment that will support chin ups, dips and some resistance band training then that’s also possible. You can even have the metal work customised so that it matches with the gym interior or your corporate colours.

Bespoke design can also be extended out to storage and you don’t have to incorporate the storage of functional training accessories into the rig itself. Specialist functional storage solutions like our Tesseract storage product enable gyms to safely store accessories and make it easier for members to find the equipment that they want to use. Storage units can be customised to include the shelving options that best suit your inventory and can be located against walls, in corners and around pillars to get the best out of your space.

The possibilities are endless and the results are functional training rigs and spaces that are actually functional. So what are you waiting for?
