Throughout 2015 Origin Fitness were given the opportunity to work with an increasing number of high profile organisations in the world of performance sport and strength & conditioning.
One such client was Scottish Premiership side, Kilmarnock FC. Having gained experience working with other Scottish/English Premiership and Championship sides over the course of 2015 Origin Fitness were perfectly prepared for this project.
One unique feature of the Kilmarnock FC Sports Centre is that when not in use by the first teams and development squad, the club open the facility to community members. This means that the gym design must cater for both elite level athletes and the general gym-going public.
The centre staff and club coaches all take an attentive, personal approach to working with members and players. For this reason we felt comfortable designing a training facility which made minimal usage of traditional cardio and fixed resistance equipment – placing more emphasis on free weights and functional accessories.
The strong focus on strength and conditioning for the athletes and the increasing introduction of free weights exercises to the programmes of community members meant that this area of the gym was of huge importance.
Origin Fitness installed four Origin Fitness Half Racks equipped with high performance bars and urethane plates. Underneath this, there are four integrated lifting platforms surrounded by 40mm high impact gym floor tiles to protect both the equipment and sub-floor.

We'd love to show you what we can do.
