Custom Rig Installation Boditone Fitness Centre

Boditone Fitness Centre

Boditone Fitness Centre, based in Hanham Bristol is an awesome facility with superb Classes and Personal Trainers. Owner Sarah Walker contacted us at Perfect Gym Solutions to design and manufacture a Functional Training Rig to increase training variation during her group training and PT sessions.

The challenge we had was to create a Custom Rig System which would fit into a limited space in the strength training room in the gym that would allow multiple people to train on it at any one time. In addition to the space this Rig had to be free standing rather than wall mounted. To achieve the desired result we designed a Compact 2 Cell Free Standing Rig with Close Hole Spacing, heavy duty J Hooks, Adjustable Dipping Bar, Portable Core Trainer, Climbing Rope Pull Up Cross Member and Pull Up Bars. In addition to this we utilised a single pull up bar to connect to a Compact Half Rack Rig.

York Barbell was founded in 1932 by Bob Hoffman, who at the time was a prolific author of articles and books instilling the importance of exercise and nutrition. It was during the Los Angeles Olympics in 1932 that Hoffman noticed how the teams from other countries excelled in comparison to the American weightlifting team, so that same year Hoffman established the York Barbell Company and began promoting weightlifting across the USA. To further the improvements in performance, Hoffman reached out to ostracised minorities of the time to train and compete at York Barbell.

During the Second World War, York Barbell supplied barbells to the United States military to to help the service personnel increase strength; when the war ended, the demand for barbells increased due to the military personnel, who had experienced the benefits of weightlifting, returning home.

From the 1930s through the 1970s, York Barbell sponsored over 40 USA national championships and numerous Olympic gold medalists. Hoffman became the Coach of the US Olympic Weightlifting Team during America’s Golden Age of Weightlifting in 1948, 1952, 1956, 1960 and 1964 Games.
