IRISH RUGBY FOOTBALL UNION, DUBLIN

BLK BOX is at its heart a high-performance training brand. From the outset the sole intent has been about improving athletes through better training. After a long and gruelling tender process, it is a great honour for BLK BOX to have won the contract to supply the new IRFU’s High-Performance Training Facility within the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena in Abbotstown.

THE PROJECT

The IRFU team worked with BLK BOX to ultimately create an elite training space like no other in the country and to ultimately provide a solution that would involve multiple work stations and free up floor space. The Samson Combo Rack was designed in collaboration with the Irish Rugby team, in which 6 were installed. The Samson Series is designed for elite athletes in mind, who demand more. This versatile rack offers the best of our Samson Full and Half Racks, whilst saving valuable floor space by sharing the weight plate storage.

THE OUTCOME

This was an extremely intricate facility that took almost 2 years of collaboration to create one of the best High-Performance facilities in Europe. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the finished project become more than you had thought possible. The facility will play an important part in the continued development of the sevens squads, with the men having recently qualified for the World Sevens Series circuit for next season, while both are bidding to reach the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

"If you’ve ever been involved in designing and kitting out a gym, you know how demanding and stressful the process can be. This is why it is essential that you align yourself with a good designer, a good supplier, and a project manager that will guide the process from conception to completion. It is for this reason that we partnered with BLK BOX in building our High-Performance Gym on the National Sports Campus.

From helping us iterate the gym design to sourcing and building equipment to spec to managing the install process with the builders, BLK BOX provided a complete solution. The team that Greg Bradley has assembled is world class, but, most importantly, they are passionate about what they do and truly put the customer first. If you want a best in class gym, you need a best in class partner to build it; look no further than BLK BOX!”
