Matrix Fitness: Full recovery

Wigan Warriors has reduced rehabilitation time with the help of a Matrix Fitness gym transformation


Matrix Fitness has been a proud partner of the Wigan Warriors Rugby League team for over five years, providing fitness equipment for the club’s world-class training facility, which is proving essential for both performance and rehabilitation.

Never has Matrix Fitness equipment been more indispensable than in the rehabilitation of player, Liam Farrell, who suffered an MCL tear during a game at the end of last season.

Ian Bentley, head of performance, says: “Injuries are a stressful time for players. They feel isolated when unable to contribute to the team.

“Often injured players are encouraged to avoid the gym, but not here, as – thanks to our varied equipment set-up from Matrix – the gym is a place where our injured players are still able to train around the rest of the squad.”

The gym has an increased variety of fitness equipment, allowing coaches flexibility when planning sessions.

For strength and conditioning work there are four Magnum series mega racks, two Magnum half racks with cables and several Magnum posterior chain machines. There are also isolated Aura stack machines, free weights, treadmills and bikes from the 7xi range, S-drive, S-force and Matrix rowers.

Making a full recovery
On his recovery, Farrell says: “Having the best quality equipment from Matrix makes rehabilitation easier and has given me the confidence to come back strong. Being able to still train around the rest of the team gives you motivation to become part of the playing group again.”

Bentley adds: “Not only did the Matrix gym equipment help speed up Liam’s recovery, but it also allowed us to build his strength, control and resilience to ensure he returned to fitness in as robust a state as possible. Not only to reduce the risk of him re-injuring his knee, but also to reduce his risk of sustaining secondary injuries that could be attributed to de-loading or under-training during his period of time out.

“The team at Matrix is always helpful and easy to work with,” said Farrell. “At the end of each season we change the layout of the gym and this enables us to keep the space fresh for the players when they get back for pre-season training.

“Whenever we have a problem which needs solving, the Matrix team is always happy to help.”
