The functional training area includes a hexagon and rectangle training stations together with freestanding elements - such as balance beams, plyo platforms, and dip bars. Since Stropu lake and the beach is a very crowded place during the summer - our aim was to create an eye-catching and attractive sporting area for more than 40 people and it was not only about doing sports, it was also about getting people involved into sports. The numerous engraved hint panels with exercise techniques will advise inexperienced athletes how to perform squats, dips, and lunges properly and how to use the equipment.
On the second part of the are we have placed an impressive OCR structure with 3 separate lanes was decorated with custom engraved plates with “Latvija 100” - devoted to the 100-year celebration of the independence of Latvia county in 2018. We have developed and used unique obstacles, such as barrel pull-up stations, unstable bridges and grip trainers. The structure includes 2 additional lanes – the first side lane with grip training spheres and second side lane with ladders. Additional lanes were specially designed for advanced athletes, who would like to try new training methods.
The functional training area is a real success with positive feedback received from both officials and the community. It attracts many families from the surrounding communities.
At Element Fitness we are now testing prototypes for many more functional training stations and OCR items for all ages and abilities that we can offer to the society. In case you might need functional training solutions - we are always here to assist you!
