We were thrilled to work with All Ireland 2021 Champions Tyrone GAA and help to transform their space into a facility that all sports teams would envy. Their new aptly named ‘Performance Hub’ in Garvaghy is used by the Men’s, Ladies, Under 21’s and Minor’s teams so it was vital that all needs of the players were considered to produce a training facility designed to last.
The facility boasts 5 custom branded Samson Full Racks along with a wide variety of attachments, specifically designed with high performance athletes in mind. There is laser-cut numbering and 1.37mm westside hole spacing on each of the uprights, creating even more range of accuracy for attaching Spotting Arms, Safety Straps and J-Hooks at a height suitable for each athlete.
The 4,000 square foot facility also includes a sprinting track, nutrition station, kitchen area as well as a relaxation area. BLK BOX covered the area with a variety of different performance flooring solutions, each tailored to the type of training taking place in that area. BLK BOX Fusion Gym Flooring Roll and Velocity Turf make up the majority of the space in the facility. The Fusion Gym Flooring roll was installed in heavy conditioning areas as the 12mm base layer and 3mm hard-wearing top layer is perfect for providing noise and shock absorption, and the Velocity Turf was installed in areas of high traffic. BLK BOX Agility Turf marries aesthetics and long-lasting performance and was chosen for the remaining areas that will be used for sled work, sprints and more heavy conditioning.
To accommodate all teams using the facility, both floor space and equipment had to be perfectly balanced. Storage was a crucial element in the design of this facility, so the BLK BOX Big Ass Storage was installed alongside a 3 Tier Dumbbell Rack, to safely and neatly house their 2.5kg-40kg set of Urethane Dumbbells.
The club also chose a range of high performance pieces of equipment including the BLK BOX GHD, BLK BOX Speed Sled alongside the staples like the 20kg Belfast Bar, Competition Weight Plates, Safety Squat Bar and BLK BOX Resistance Bands, all designed to prepare the players for the upcoming session and add variety to their training programs.
We are delighted to have worked with this club on delivering their high performance training facility which helped them take home the Sam Maguire in the 2021 All Ireland Senior Football Championship.
