Hartpury University and Hartpury College is a specialist educational provider located in Gloucestershire with just under 4,500 college and university level students studying degrees, A Levels and diploma courses in the areas of sport, equine, animal and agriculture. 

Hartpury University and Hartpury College sit side by side on the same campus and is one of the UK’s leading land-based and sports educational establishments. The 360-hectare estate, located close to Gloucester and Cheltenham, features multi-million pound sporting facilities. All of Hartpury’s facilities are designed to offer all elite sports men and women the same standards they could expect at many professional sports clubs.

Students in new gym

“The reason for the new gym here is to provide students with the best possible space to help them achieve their sporting goals. We believe we have done that with this gym. We think it's fantastic. The feedback from students and staff that use this space has been extremely positive.”


Hartpury opted for the BLK BOX Samson Range which is the most premium manufacturing option. High-quality construction and materials ensure that this rig is built for life and able to take everything you can throw at it. The modular design means Samson is compatible for expansion and the perfect option for any sized facility serious about performance.

Samson Rigs

“Main goal of this gym was to be able to get as many athletes in here as possible at one time with a not be overcrowded. And with the design from BLK BOX, we believe we've done that. We've got a nice ten bay Samson rack configuration going on down the middle of our gym, which are back to back, leaving lots of space on the outside of the gym. Result is, we can fit 40 athletes in here at one time. Plenty of space and plenty of equipment so we're not limited by what exercises that we can deliver to our athletes”


Other products featured in this epic space are the Fusion Flooring, Custom Goliath Full Rack, array of Samson attachments including Landmine, Dip Station etc, Belt Squat Machine and many more. We particularly love Hartpury’s use of iPads and integration of technology with our kit.... Visionary!

Wishing Hartpury all the best with their new facility. And hope to work with them again soon in the near future.
