“Our aim with the Strength and Conditioning Area at Oriam was to create a facility designed for use by Professional Athletes from a wide range of Sports including: Rugby, Rugby 7s, Basketball, Handball, Netball and Football through to the full range of sports catered for by the Sportscotland Institute of Sport which can be as varied as Squash, Skiing, Curling and Cycling amongst many others. We also had to ensure that the facility would cater for large groups of such as the Scottish Rugby Squad who used it during the recent Autumn internationals. We worked closely with Perform Better to look at the design of the room layout and also the design of some of the pieces of equipment to ensure they were tailor made for our requirements. We visited a wide of Performance facilities around the UK to pick up ideas to ensure we designed a very high end Performance facility. We are very pleased with the facility we have created and we have had some excellent feedback from our Professional users.”
