Wasps Rugby and Matrix Fitness UK have renewed their partnership, which was first signed in 2016 announcing Matrix as the official gym equipment supplier, for a further four years.
Through the partnership, Matrix have supplied an extensive range of advanced fitness equipment to the Club’s elite gym facility, including cardiovascular equipment with live data functions, plate-loaded weights and Olympic-standard free weights.
Chris Bell, Head of Partnerships at Wasps, said: “Matrix have provided excellent equipment that allows our players to develop and prepare for the demands of professional rugby.
“Creating an environment that supports the strength and conditioning team is a key component of our performance centre, we have enjoyed creating this with Matrix fitness and look forward to continuing this relationship .”
Current equipment installed includes the Matrix Magnum plate-loaded racks, 7xi treadmills and the Climbmill cardio equipment, the Matrix S-Drive and S-Force, as well as the new Matrix CXP Target training cycles.
The renewed partnership will also include equipment installs at the new, purpose-built Primer Gym which will be located at Ricoh Arena. The new gym will include Matrix visuals to reinforce the partnership and will be used for matchday preparation and team training.
Dan Baugh, Head of Strength and Conditioning at Wasps, added: “Matrix are leaders in their field and continually look to innovate and improve their equipment to support athletic development. Importantly, the versatility of the Matrix equipment allows our rehabbing players to strengthen affected areas alongside our fit players.
“We pride ourselves on partnering with organisations that are best-in-class, innovative and offer unique concepts for our club. Matrix is a welcome addition to this family.”
