#empowered Geelong Cats Fitout
Date Posted:13 June 2018
Working with Chris Dennis, Head of Geelong Cats Strength & Conditioning, AlphaFit designed a space that would work to get up to 50 AFL players through elite Strength and Conditioning sessions.
We incorporated a custom colour black 6 Cell Rig that would get 12 players squatting and benching at one time. The ability to customise the size of the bridges enabled AlphaFit to maximise space and fit in an extra cell to get more players training at once.
The rack has Multi Grip Chin Up Bars to target every angle and muscle including neutral grip chins for the athletes. It also features custom heights for chin ups—Geelong has a couple of tall players where they need extra height so they can complete the full range of movement.
Rig Mounted Core Trainers, Fly Away bars, and Outrigger Trawler Arms to hang rings and climbing ropes provide versatility on the rack and in the exercises the players can perform. Rig Mounted Padded Pegs so they can complete a range of controlled movements including Bulgarian split squats and myofascial release.
“The great thing about this rack for me as a Strength and Conditioning coach is
the versatility, the functionality, and the ability to host pure numbers”
Chris Dennis - Geelong Strength and Conditioning Coach
The custom Flat Benches feature wide bench pads and a specific height for different sized players so they can comfortably complete exercises correctly. The Bench Pull was also customised to include new handles allowing bigger players to complete a full range of movement at all times.
In addition, The Cats also have AlphaFit Premium J hooks providing a safer and easier option to rack barbells, as well as foam plyo box sets, hex dumbbells, power bands, hex/trap bars, slam balls and kettlebells.
Our manufacturing facility based on the Gold Coast allowed us to completely customise all parts of the fitout to ensure we could make the most of the training area design for Geelong.
