Coolmine complete new gym
Coolmine have recently added a gym to their array of fine facilities. The need for the gym was first raised early last season and the players themselves took on the project raising funds throughout the year and also sourced all equipment and materials needed.
Work started early summer with a site located close to the all-weather pitches and a concrete base was laid. Two containers were quickly transformed into one large unit by some expert welding. It was then time to transform the inside by cutting out walls, giving a spacious interior to accommodate everyone.
Much of the work was done by the lads themselves over the summer months, including wiring, plastering and decorating. While the gym is now up and running, there is still some minor work left to do to finish the project off. The facility features mostly free weights and benches and a static bicycle for warming up.
In the present climate this facility is a welcome addition for many players as it takes away the pressure to pay expensive gym memberships and also allows the teams to complete their conditioning training as a unit.
Many thanks to everyone who gave their time and skills over the last few months.
