Gymkit design & define new gym training spaces at Spiceball Leisure Centre

Gymkit UK redesigned the gym flooring at Spiceball Leisure Centre in Banbury to create clearly designated training spaces. Approximately, 500sq m of flooring was installed in the gym helping to map out the new design incorporating two functional training spaces, extend the free weights area and refresh the CV and selectorised space. 

The aim of the project was to meet the increasing demand for both functional training and free weights and modernise the facility. The redesign would also give personal trainers more tools and space to utilise during their sessions.

The flooring

The entire gym floor was uplifted as part of the project and replaced throughout with a range of surfaces to meet the needs of the new spaces.

In the newly extended free weight area, a 40mm impact material was laid to reduce noise and vibration. The surface was specified in grey to complement the flooring scheme alongside it.

The same grey rubber flooring was installed in one of the new functional training areas to protect the floor from equipment like kettlebells.

In functional training area one, a bespoke rubber tile system with integrated Queenax floor markings was installed – to help with hand and foot placement during workouts. An artificial turf track was also laid alongside the Queenax rig to accommodate training with prowlers and sleds.
