Lincoln City’s historic FA Cup run of 2016/17 has helped fund the build of a new £1.3 million Centre which houses a fully-equipped gym, changing rooms, canteen, offices and media room.

Perform Better were chosen to supply and install the new training facility with elite performance products. The Centre includes an elite Strength and Conditioning Suite to develop physical performance and for rehabilitation of injured players.

"The gym development at Lincoln City FC last summer was richly enhanced and facilitated by Perform Better. The equipment they provided and service they delivered was fantastic. Working alongside the staff at the football club, in an attempt to understand the demands and needs required for the long term day-to-day conditioning of the players, Darren and the Perform better staff were excellent and accommodating to our needs. The support they have provided in the whole process of creating our gym provision has been remarkable."




Following meetings with the club’s performance staff PB were tasked with devising a layout to maintain a large amount of free space in the gym to allow larger groups to train together and ensure floor based work was possible.

A selection of Strength and Conditioning equipment was included in designs as well as portable cardio equipment that could be moved into other rooms or outside (weather permitting).

Each piece of equipment where possible were black and red to match the interior and club colours of red, white and black. Finishing touches of the club crest were included on all benches to give the gym a strong club look.
