The British Olympic Association wanted to make the 2016 training camps the biggest and best equipped ever to have been used by a British Olympic team. Having worked closely with the BOA before, we were brought in to handle the design and fit-out of the team’s strength and conditioning camps in Brazil.
After an in-depth design process, we flew to Brazil to meet the four shipping containers and to set up the three sites.
Strength Equipment – Premium-quality strength equipment ranging from dumbbells and resistance bands to squat stations and benches
Cardio – Rowing machines and Concept2 standing ski ergs
Extras – Saunas and ice baths
Branding – Team GB branded equipment including lifting platforms, plyo boxes and training plates made by IWF-accredited Werksan
Team colours – Racks, machines and benches in GB’s red and blue
The training camps were a huge success and, as intended, helped unite athletes from all across the sporting spectrum. And finishing second in the medal table wasn’t a bad result either!
Team GB athletes were able to train in state-of-the-art facilities that mimicked the high standard and quality they were used to back in the UK, and thus create a positive impact on their performance.James Moore , Deputy Chef de Mission Performance Services, British Olympic Association
