Formula one team gym moves up a gear with new equipment

RENAULT’S Formula One team are being kept on track with new equipment for their Human Performance Centre Gym.
Fitlinxx and Johnson Health Tech UK have teamed up to provide the state of the art stations at the company’s testing headquarters in Oxfordshire.
The facility is the backbone of Renault’s Formula One team and hundreds of staff remain on site all year round, producing and testing car components.
Due to the centre’s remote location, the gym is an integral part of it’s staff amenities.
It is also used by the Renault Driver Development (RDD) programme which offers specialised training to talented young drivers.
Trainee Lucas di Grassi said: “Being a professional driver requires a high level of fitness in order to gain performance in the car, therefore, training is key to our results.”
Daryl Coombes, Human Performance Centre Manager at Enstone, is responsible for the staff and the RDD team’s fitness.
He said: “Our drive towards excellence in all aspects of physical training has been enhanced by Johnson Health Tech’s Matrix fitness equipment and FitLinxx.
“We are pleased to welcome FitLinxx as a partner to our gym.
“This intelligent system will most definitely help our work force enhance their fitness, and also motivate our drivers to train by themselves without risking injury.”
