LEICESTERSHIRE POLICE

 

As part of an ongoing initiative to improve the health and wellbeing offering to all staff within the force, the team at Leicestershire Police were converting an existing office and storage space to a staff gym.

Space restrictions in the previous gym had limited the range of activities and equipment that could be utilised. A key focus for the project was to address this limitation and offer a wide variety of training possibilities whilst still allowing users of all abilities and experience levels to enjoy unsupervised use of the gym.

Perform Better were approached to consult on the project because of their previous work with the force at their Enderby Head Quarters and flagship projects with local Premier League team Leicester City.

I am really pleased with what we were able to achieve. Sam was extremely accommodating and worked with me throughout to bring this project to life. Sam was able to capture the vision for the gym space and make it a reality. The end result was a high-quality gym space that ticked all the boxes for our members. The help and support through the development phase was second to none. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and all the feedback from members has been extremely positive. For high quality equipment custom equipment, I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thanks Sam and everyone at Perform Better who helped on this project.

Solution


The focal point of the gym is the completely custom, co-designed rig. This piece needed to provide the option to barbell lift, whilst incorporating elements of bodyweight play, climbing, boxing, circuit training and gymnastics.

A range of pin-loaded Perform Better strength equipment allows a wide variety of movements to be performed with a minimal footprint into the gym space and no requirement for additional weight plates to load them.

A full suite of cardio equipment options was installed, including Concept 2 Ski Erg, Bike and Rower. As well as Keiser M5i Strider, Assault Bike and a non-motorized, curved treadmill.

Finally, Perform Better installed branded adjustable benches and stainless-steel dumbbell set, complete with rotating vertical storage to maximize remaining floor space.
