Sport is key to life at Bryanston. It was therefore no surprise to hear that plans were afoot to expand their existing sports facilities. The main driver was to enable all pupils to develop affectionate connections with sport, whilst also acting as a catalyst for continued success and excellence for the school’s competitive sports teams.
As part of this rejuvenation of facilities, the school added a purpose-built high-performance centre, incorporating an S&C area and sprint track, to support their Performance Sport Programme.
Specialists in creating S&C facilities, Absolute Performance (AP) was drafted in to work with the school team from the early planning stage – cementing a relationship that spans several years.
We set about equipping an S&C area that would not only stand up to the daily rigours of school use but also rival professional elite centres, as well as support Bryanston’s focus on the individual and one-to-one approach.
Working with the school, AP designed an S&C facility using products from Legend Fitness, which have a proven track record in delivering solutions to the US collegiate system. Fit for purpose, it is tried and tested to provide a unique focal point in Bryanston’s signature colours.
Three Pro-Series full racks take centre stage in blue and gold, finished with Werksan plates branded with the school crest. Fulfilling the brief to support the creation of a strong team ethos, benches, soft plyo boxes and dumbbells all bear the Bryanston crest, reinforcing the professional approach and team spirit the school encourages from all its pupils.
A bespoke functional facility allowing the school to take their Performance Sport Programme to the next level.
“Once installed, the kit had an immediate effect on not only the pupils using it, but also everyone entering the new S&C area. Over time it will inspire both Bryanston pupils and elite sportspeople across the country,” said Alex Fermor-Dunman, director of sport.
