Burnley FC completed their new state-of-the-art Performance Facility at their Gawthorpe Training Ground in 2017.

Having supplied the equipment to the old Strength and Conditioning facility at the training ground- Perform Better were again selected to design and equip the new facility.

"Perform Better have worked closely with myself from day one on constructing the gym for our new training centre here at Burnley FC. Their professionalism and design capabilities are second to none, and we were able to get a feel for what the new facility would look like with the click of a button. Even now, we are using Perform Better to further enhance and modify our existing equipment, ensuring that all of our players are physically ready for the demands of the Premier League."

Tom Short, BSC, MSC - 1st Team Strength and Conditioning Coach


The Perform Better team worked closely with Head of Performance- Mark Howard and 1st Team Strength and Conditioning Coach- Tom Short to maximise the space available and provide bespoke equipment designed specifically to the requirements.

After a 15 month build the new £10.6m training facility at Burnley FC’s Gawthorpe Training Ground was completed. The facilities include: an indoor 60m x 40m football pitch, team meeting room, match analysis suite, medical and sports science facilities, administration facilities for support staff, players’ lounge, drugs testing suite, hydro pool with an underwater treadmill and a new Strength and Conditioning Room.

Perform Better installed Duratrain performance flooring into the new facility with different coloured tiles to designate the lifting platform and drop zone areas. In the initial installation a bespoke rig was designed and installed around a pillar in the middle of the room.
