Underground Training Station

A gym extension

The Underground Training Station is an established and popular private gym in Merseyside. Having been involved in its previous expansions, we understood the business and its capacity for further growth. So we were delighted to be asked to help take UTS to another level – by transforming unused space at its Hoylake facility.

Installing a lifting & movement zone

We had a large space to work with; something of a luxury when it comes to gym design. But a big area has its own challenges, not least how best to define the various elements that make up a fully equipped gym. And in UTS’s case, how to create a new space that complemented the existing gym, both visually and practically.

  1. Two-layer flooring throughout

  2. defined by a bespoke 15m free-standing rig with 10 lifting bays and Werksan bars and plates, and 60 DC lifting blocks

  3. Open space for plyometric drills, speed drills and general movement patterns

  4. More than 140sqm of artificial turf to create an additional multi-use area and connect the new area to the old

A development that takes the gym forward

This new training space fits perfectly with the UTS ethos and brand. It’s functional, inspirational, smart. And we think it further sets UTS apart from its competition.

By picking the brains of the AP team we have been able to create an additional 400sqm of fantastic training space.
