Not just the home of Reading FC, but also an ever-expanding place for sporting expertise, the new gymnasium has revolutionised the way footballers train.
Reading wanted to refresh their two gymnasiums as a surprise for the players over the international break.
Working from Thursday through to Sunday evening, we started by looking at the flooring.
The Weight Training Room
We chose Duraflex flooring as its protective properties will help support the subfloor, especially when heavy weights are dropped. The floor was installed across the whole area to allow for weight work to be done across the whole room.
The Functional Room
We opted to provide a plyometric turf across the whole room. This provided an exciting visual experience, whilst the plyometric nature of the floor allowed for more specific work and provided a softened landing across the room. Around the edge of this room we placed CV equipment, spin bikes and fixed-weight equipment.
In the weight training area, we provided
3 Perform Better Performance Racks
2 Adjustable Benches
3 Set of Perform Better Olympic Discs and Bars
3 Keiser Functional Trainers.

10 x Keiser Spin Cycles
