Cardiff-based gym design and installation company, Absolute Performance, has been awarded the contract to design, supply and install three gyms for Team GB for the 2024 games in Paris.

This marks the third Olympic cycle that the company has been selected to support Team GB for both the Olympics and Paralympics.

Absolute Performance has a wealth of experience in designing and installing world-class gyms, having worked with a number of high-profile clients, including Premier League football clubs and international sports teams. The company's expertise in gym design and installation, coupled with its commitment to delivering exceptional customer service, has made it a trusted partner for Team GB since the Rio de Janeiro Olympics of 2016.

As part of the contract, Absolute Performance will be responsible for designing and installing three state-of-the-art gyms that will provide Team GB's athletes with the best possible facilities to prepare for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The gyms will be equipped with top-of-the-line equipment and amenities, including strength and conditioning equipment, cardio machines and recovery facilities, to support the athletes' physical and mental wellbeing.

The logistics involved may not be quite as challenging as they were for the games in Rio or Tokyo but the coordination and planning required to install over 100 tonnes of equipment at the three sites in readiness for July and disassemble after the Paralympics finish is a huge undertaking. After the games close the equipment is planned to be repurposed as part of a Team GB initiative.

"We’re thrilled to have been selected to support Team GB for the third consecutive Olympic cycle," said Tony Buchanan, Absolute Performance owner. "We’re committed to delivering world-class gym design and installation services to help Team GB's athletes perform at their best in Paris 2024."

The contract with Team GB is a testament to Absolute Performance's reputation as a leader in the gym design and installation industry. The company's focus on innovation, quality and customer service has helped it establish itself as one of the most trusted and respected names in the industry.
