Lindum, Brisbane, Queensland
Iona College is an all-boys Catholic College located in Brisbane with a focus 'on educating and empowering young men to dare to make a positive difference throughout their lives and to the lives of others'. The College provides an extensive sports program, seeking to nurture the physical talents of Iona's students, whilst supporting their academic potential. When it came time for Iona to upgrade their new gym space, they approached AlphaFit because they were impressed with the quality of equipment and local manufacturing.
Utilising our Gym Designer Service, Iona College achieved both a strength and functional focused facility that they were after. AlphaFit designed a custom 4 Cell Freestanding Low Rig with half of the rig configured with monkey bars. To maximise on space, Iona ran a conditioning sled track through the middle of the rig, this still provides enough room for up to 8 people to complete a range of movements within their squat stations.
Undoubtedly a showpiece of the gym, AlphaFit’s Freestanding Lat Pull Low Row Towers provide everything you need for a comprehensive upper body workout. Another key piece of the gym are the Functional Trainers which supplies limitless strength training options in one compact unit.
Iona College invested in various storage solutions, making it easier for their students to set up and pack away their gear. These storage solutions include: an Evolve Storage System, PU Dumbbell Rack, Wall Mounted Barbell Storage, Wall Mounted Plate Storage and Dumbbell Towers. Effective storage can be a challenge but AlphaFit delivers an unrivalled range of ready to purchase and custom storage solutions for every facility.
For strength training we supplied a variety of AlphaFit equipment including Utility Benches, a Push Pull Sled, PU Dumbbells and a GHD. To round out the fitout a range of conditioning equipment was selected including Soft Blocks, Battle Rope, Kettlebells and Medicine Balls.
