St Aloysius' College

When the time came to refurbish the college's fitness facilities, St Aloysius's college worked with Origin Fitness to offer their pupils a versatile and safe space in which they can develop their fitness.


Objective

The importance of physical education for St Aloysius' College pupils is not underestimated by the school's administration. This is why they invested in the creation of a top quality facility, which enables all types of training from cardio and lifting weights to boxing and group classes. The space was to be used by classes as well as individuals, meaning space and proper zoning was vital to the execution of this gym's design.



Equipment and Layout

The gym has been divided in to four equipment zones with a large open space in the middle to facilitate group training, safe access to all equipment and floor based workouts. A series of commercial grade Cybex treadmills and Arc Trainers were placed facing the windows, behind which a fleet of indoor cycles and eSpinners offer both groups and individuals an exciting and comfortable ride. Indoor cycles are great for group sessions, whereas the eSpinner is a great solution for providing training guidance when students are using the space on their own



Along one side of the room, several Origin Functional Rig stations were placed in a row to to provide the functionality of a training rig, without the impact on space. These stations include a boxing station, a stretching station with storage and a rebounder station.

Across the room, two half racks and a smith machine offer pupils and staff the opportunity to develop their strength in an safe and scaleable way. A series of Hex Bars were also supplied to enable all users to develop their technique before moving on to more advanced lifts like deadlifts.

These large pieces were complemented by several smaller accessories such as kettlebells, medicine balls and sandbags, to ensure all ages feel welcome and capable of training at their own level.



Outcomes

The outcome is an open, welcoming gym facility fit for all those who want to work on their fitness development. Staff, pupils and visitors have all remarked on the quality of the space. St Aloysius' College are setting a new standard in the development of school fitness spaces.



Testimonial

Working with Origin Fitness was truly excellent. Our account manager's knowledge was fantastic, and he was honest about our needs and spec delivered. Any issues we came across regarding the actual space were resolved quickly and efficiently.
I would, and have already, recommend Origin Fitness for any fitness development projects.
