Third Space Canary Wharf, London, has created The Yard, a flexible training space
At Third Space Canary Wharf, London, EXF has worked in partnership with the club to transform the site’s former sports hall into a dedicated 745sq m flexible training space called The Yard.
It features bespoke flooring solutions throughout, including functional performance flooring, strength flooring and a 15m three-lane indoor track.
EXF strength flooring has been installed in areas that require protection. This was important for the Third Space team, as the Yard features an extensive range of cross-training and strength equipment.
The EXF functional performance flooring range has been installed to reduce the chance of injury during sporting activity, by integrating the EXF Control SD underlay system.
This makes it suitable for use in functional training areas: the range includes shock absorption and anti-slip properties, as well as noise reduction, which was important in this case, as the area is above the spa.
The team also installed a running track, to allow for sprint training and prowler-sledge work. The agility turf track was designed in terracotta and white to stand out from the industrial black and grey aesthetic.
”There’s a huge demand for flexible training. Our vision was to create a dynamic space for strength and conditioning, functional training and combat arts,” says Third Space fitness director, Rob Beale.
