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 gym design, strength equipment and gym installation of the team’s strength and conditioning camps in Brazil.
Our dedicated gym installation team spent 3 and a half weeks out in Rio where they spent a week installing the elite strength equipment from Legend Fitness
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 with state-of-the-art strength equipment 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
