November 26, 2012
I hope that many of you have had a chance to flick over the photos and plans for the redevelopment of the Sports Centre.
It dawned on me over the weekend that no matter who we are at Warwick, staff or student, postgraduate or part time; we all have one thing in common… our lives at Warwick are: busy. We juggle our lives around studying, work, activities and socialising and it can be quite tough! (Breathe). The team at Warwick Sport is working really hard to create the new Warwick Lifestyle programme so that all of our members can enjoy the great benefits of physical exercise to our busy daily routines.
Myself, I enjoy a morning swim. I find the water very peaceful, though I sometimes envy the faster swimmers that seem to race past me (I’ll get there – watch out please swim team). However, lots of us at Warwick enjoy the Strength and Conditioning Room – whether you’re looking for that holiday body, training with one of our sports teams or simply want to increase personal strength – the S&C room is always packed.
With this in mind, the Lifestyle Team has decided to share some of the TECHNOGYM images with you:
The new facility you can see is located in the current ‘Studio’. It includes Olympic half racks, Scott bench, adjustable and flat benches as well as radiant and dual adjustable pulley machines (DAPS).
DAPS complement the traditional strength and resistance equipment, as they are multi functional systems that allow a full body workout through a pulley system and various accessories. This will be available to all S&C members, be a great asset to our Focus Club programme as well as provide excellent training facilities for all our sports clubs. I know our Lifestyle Team can’t wait to see you all use it!
I’m sure you can see that members will be able to train in the same way that they can in the current S&C room but there will be a lot more opportunity for additional training methods and systems. Very exciting!
Have a great week,
