Premier League and England defender, wanted to convert garage space into a gym space for home workouts, to build on strength and fitness while away from the training ground.

The client had used Perform Better equipment in his professional club, so were the best choice when converting his garage into a home gym.

“I used PB for my home gym and from start to finish everything was really easy for me, from seeing the space in the design software to planning and choosing the flooring and equipment. I use the equipment often and it's brilliant, no complaints from me. I’m made up with it!”


The room had 30mm strength flooring installed to allow for Olympic lifting and heavy drops.

We decided to use squat stands for bar work to allow more open functional space in the garage for other work/movements.

Full dumbbell & strength band sets, as well as an adjustable bench, were included for a range of resistance work.

A Keiser spin bike was added for a cardio option in the room.
