Matrix Fitness supplies premium strength equipment to Wasps Rugby Academy

Matrix Fitness, the commercial division of Johnson Health Tech, has recently completed a full installation of some of its new premium strength line equipment at the Wasps Rugby Academy training gym in Henley.

Matrix Fitness has been working in partnership with Wasps for the last two years as the Gallagher Premierships club’s official equipment supplier. This latest project has seen Matrix recommend equipment best suited to the young Wasps Academy team, aged 15 to 18, who aspire to become senior team players. Matrix Fitness has installed equipment from its Magnum strength range including power racks and back extension machines as well adjustable benches from its Aura line. The installation will be used for strength and conditioning training as well as injury prevention and rehabilitation programmes.

Julian Taylor, Director of Marketing for EMEA and UK, said: “We enjoyed working to meet this specific youth training brief for the Wasps Academy site in Henley. We are sure the choice of equipment and its targeted use by the young players will give them the best chance of making the senior team: it’s an honour to have helped make this happen.”

Jonathan Pendlebury, Wasps Academy Manager, added: “We have been planning the ideal set-up including Matrix equipment for a while now and the new install will be used for many years. Our first team players use Matrix kit to great effect and it was our first choice to work with Matrix Fitness for our academy as the equipment is versatile, high performing and durable.

“Having Matrix equipment enables our academy players to have two professionally coached gym, prehab and rehab sessions with our conditioning and physiotherapist staff to dovetail their physical development with their rugby skills development as they work hard, aspiring to play for the senior team.”
