Origin Fitness collaborated with the King's Troops to transform an existing space into a state-of-the-art training facility. The goal was to create a versatile gym catering to the unique needs of the military unit stationed at the Royal Artillery Barracks.

The King's Troops required a space that could accommodate a sizable number of soldiers simultaneously, focusing on both individual and squad-based workouts. The chosen location, equipped with an unconventional training rig, M1 Tank, and specialised flooring, offered the ideal foundation for this ambitious project.

Kings Troop


Origin Fitness worked closely with the King's Troops to design and implement a comprehensive fitness solution.


To optimise space and training possibilities, Origin installed the Performance Series Rig. Featuring a rope climber and eight lifting stations with adjoining pull-up bars, this rig provided 15 individual user stations, supporting solo and group workouts.

Free Weights and Functional:

In addition to the Performance Series Rig, the gym featured the IF93 strength range, Urethane Competition Kettlebells, and a Concept 2 Bike Erg. The gym was equipped with tailored storage solutions to ensure quick access to essential equipment during fast-paced training sessions.

High-intensity interval training was a key focus, and the gym was equipped with Origin Storm Air Bike and Origin Storm Curved Treadmill to push the soldiers to their limits. The M1 Tanks were integrated into the training regimen, offering resistance for speed exercises on the built-in red track.

The gym's flooring consisted of 40mm High Impact Tiles and the CAP System, providing equipment protection and a dynamic training surface. Strips of red flooring defined the center of the gym, serving a specific purpose for speed drills and conditioning exercises.
