When Southampton FC were planning their new Longwood Training Ground facility Perform Better were selected to design and equip the new 1st Team Strength & Conditioning room.

The training ground is used by all age groups, with players start at one end of the training ground as U8s and graduating through the site.

The facility is equipped with sports science, scouting & recruitment, football administration and medical departments, as well as training, changing and dining facilities.

"We have recently used Perform Better for a further refurb of our Academy gym having worked with them on our First team gym when we built the training ground. As always the service and support throughout the process has been excellent. From visiting our facility, to discussing options, and installation we have been extremely happy with."

Alek Gross, Head of Sport Science 


When Southampton FC were planning the Strength and Conditioning room at the new training ground facility – Perform Better were selected to design and equip the room.

Perform Better’s design team worked closely with the Performance team to plan out the new facility. The Club required a specialist floor installing which consisted of artificial turf with a shock pad base giving a surface that can be used for both rehab and conditioning work

At the same time as building the new facility the Club also upgraded their Academy Strength & Conditioning facility. Perform Better were again selected and installed the required kit.
