New Outdoor Functional Training space

[Posted: 13 Jun 2017]


Outdoor Functional Training at Curtin Stadium has a new home!

A new shipping container has been built on Edinburgh Oval South to house the fitness training equipment.

The lockable facility is a multi-purpose space not just for storage- it features an awning and rubber surface pad and has functional capabilities to allow for new equipment in the training sessions.

Some of the benefits include:

  • access to greater green space
  • access to stairs
  • ease of equipment use with all items close at hand
  • sheltered protection base against the elements
  • natural grass and cushioned rubber pad surface
  • access to natural structures to build varied workouts around
  • next door to Curtin's new 2km campus running track
  • no need to dodge construction zones or other outdoor groups
  • environmentally friendly with solar panels on roof to power lighting
  • more opportunities for creative workouts
  • real life shipping container being used
  • camouflage colourful design to brightly blend in with natural surroundings

Be the first to try the new space and equipment and register online for the next five week round!
