  • Mirrors for the Squat Racks and platforms

Unfortunately, no one currently on stafff had a say in regards to where the mirrors were placed in the facility. We did intentionally keep all of our power racks and squat racks near each other, and it made sense to keep the power racks down on the south end by the lifting platforms and the other lower body equipment. We can revisit this layout as we are looking at adding more lifting platforms due to its popularity. When we were working on the layout, I did consult with the powerlifting team and they preferred not to have mirrors in front of the power racks as they wanted to train as if they were in competition and you are not provided mirrors when competing. We also consulted with a professional layout company for our fitness floor layouts to ensure we provided a good flow within this area.

We appreciate you bringing your concerns forward, and we will take them into consideration.
