Burton Albion Football Club looked to revamp their performance gym in 2019, and Perform Better were on hand to complete the upgrade.

Which included a range of equipment, including strength products as well as CV equipment.

"We at Burton Albion F.C. have developed a fantastic working relationship with Perform Better over the last year. Darren Ross has been critical in assisting us with the development of a new gym facility. The company’s ability to provide detailed plans of how the end product could turn out and advice and discuss different possibilities with the medical staff here at Burton Albion F.C., has enabled us to realise the full potential of the gym space we had available. The end product has turned out to be fantastic and fulfils all the hopes we had for it. The professionalism shown by Darren Ross and all members of staff at Perform Better, involved in our project has been a credit to their business. We look forward and feel privileged to be able to call upon their services to enhance our facilities and we look forward to a prosperous partnership for many further years ahead."



To continue the clubs development of facilities at the Pirelli Stadium, Perform Better were selected to convert some existing storage space into a small S&C gym to allow first team and academy players an area to complete fitness and recovery work on site.

The club staff wanted to install new flooring to allow weight to be dropped and double up to allow bodyweight work without traditional platforms. They also requested strength equipment to allow Olympic lifts and bench work to be possible.

It was important to include as much equipment to allow variety of work but without taking up too much floor space.

Following discussions with S&C and Physio staff at the club Duratrain Performance Flooring was selected to allow heavy free weights and loaded Olympic bars to be used with lifting platforms. This also maximised space available without any changes in flooring levels.

Other equipment such as Performance Half Racks with removable attachments and compact storage shelving was used to reduce floor space being used. The club now have a functional and usable space to allow a strength and rehab work to be performed at the stadium reducing the need for additional travel and club staff to work efficiently.
