FULLY FUNCTIONAL


We round up some of the latest product news and launches in the area of functional training


ORIGIN ORIGINALS


Origin Athletic is a specialist fitness brand launched by Anytime Leisure in January 2014 to cater for the fast- growing functional, free weight and studio training sector. Anytime Leisure has designed,


developed and tested the range over the last 12 months with a view to providing a premium, robust, reliable product offering backed up by extensive stock and service support based in the UK. The range for 2014 includes


an extensive free weight range, strength and conditioning, gym accessories, studio accessories and a wide range of fl oor mats, as well as functional rigs and power racks. Anytime has also formalised a


UK distribution agreement with Rephouse to hold extensive stock of the full specialist range, from CrossFit tiles, through strength and conditioning, to specialist colours of rubber functional fl ooring. Bespoke designs are available. Over the next 12 months there


will be a number of key additions to the range, as well as additional support in the areas of functional design, training and branding. Star Trac has signed a deal to


supply Origin to its UK customers. ABSOLUTELY BRANDED


Functional equipment specialist Absolute Performance has seen a huge growth in the number of facilities wanting customised branding, says managing director Tony Buchanan. As a result, the company has put even more focus on its ability to deliver this to a high standard, with the most recent installation being the England Rugby high performance training centre. At this newly installed centre,


dumbbells carry the England rose, plates and plyoboxes are all branded with ‘England Rugby’, and machines such as benches and power racks are all red and white. “When it comes to bespoke


branding, really anything can be done, from dumbbells and plyoboxes to turf for sled runs and functional zone fl ooring, which can carry a brand name, colour scheme and even messaging,” says Buchanan.


‘KAREN’ COMES TO GYM FLOORS


Physical Company has added the Wall Ball to its functional kit range. Larger than an average medicine ball, Wall Ball is just as tough but slightly softer, making it perfect for throwing and catching-based exercises. Wall Balls are most commonly used in


the CrossFit exercise known as ‘Karen’ – a squat-throw and catch combination performed continuously. Operators can now bring the essence of CrossFit to the gym fl oor and enhance the functional training experience for members, with the ball available in 10 sizes: 1kg–10kg. The Wall Ball is designed to be a fun
