FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

ESSENTIALS OF STRENGTH TRAINING AND CONDITIONING

CHAPTER 24

facility layout and scheduling1
FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Strength and conditioning coach

  • Use of space
  • Use of time
  • Organise groups
  • Arrange equipment
  • Type of surface
  • Are some of the items a strength and conditioning coach needs to consider.

FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Assessing athletic program needs

  • How many athletes will use the facility? Equipment needs and placement, also schedule and design appropriate training programs.
  • What types of specific strength and conditioning training does each athletic group require? Equipment needs and time required by each group, periodisation of each group.
  • What are the age groups of the athletes using the strength and conditioning facility? Allotted time per session, days per week, equipment needs.

FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Assessing athletic program needs

  • What is the training experience of the athletes using the facility? Novice need more one-on-one supervision.
  • When will strength training fit into each athletic team’s schedule? High school students have to train before or after school.
  • What repairs and adaptations to equipment must be made to meet athletes needs? Equipment should be checked to manufactures requirements, buy equipment that suits the most number of people.

FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Designing the strength and conditioning facility

Location

  • Ground floor – access to move heavy equipment.

Supervision location

  • Centrally located, large windows all around.

FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Designing the strength and conditioning facility

Access

  • Provide free and unobstructed access – including all entrances, exits and walkways – able-bodied and disabled.
  • Some doors and all halls would be wide enough to allow equipment to be moved.
  • Emergency exits must be unobstructed, well lit and good signage.
facility layout and scheduling6
FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Designing the strength and conditioning facility

Ceiling height

  • Should be 3.7-4.3 m from the floor, especially around platform areas.

Flooring

  • Two types – carpet or rubber flooring.
  • Carpet should be treated with antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial agents.
  • Rubber flooring is much more expensive but also more resilient.
  • Poured rubber flooring – much more expensive but has no gaps and does not move.

FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Designing the strength and conditioning facility

Environmental factors

  • Proper lighting of the facility is important for safety and motivation.
  • Recommended temperature range for the strength and conditioning facility is 22-26C or 20-22C. Zone heating and cooling is recommended as it regulates room temperature by the number of athletes using the room.
  • Relative humidity should be 60% or less.
  • Air circulation should be 12 to 15 exchanges per hour.
  • Sound levels should not exceed 90 decibels, should allow good communication between coaches and athletes.

FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Designing the strength and conditioning facility

Mirrors

  • Mirrors need to be placed in strategic positions to allow coaching and self correction. Also allows strength and conditioning supervisor to supervise all areas of gym. They should be at least 51cm off the ground.

Other considerations

  • Drinking fountains
  • Restrooms
  • Signage should be displayed in high visual areas – operational policies, facility rules, and safety guidelines.
  • Bulletin boards are used for communication and display announcements.
  • Storage room if possible.

FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Arranging Equipment in the Strength and Conditioning Facility

  • Two methods of arranging equipment
  • Different body parts
  • Types of equipment

Equipment placement

  • All power exercises away from things that can break, also be supervised.
  • Tall equipment placed along walls and short equipment in the centre to allow visibility.

FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Arranging Equipment in the Strength and Conditioning Facility

Equipment placement

  • Barbells and dumbbells should be 91cm apart and allow spotting areas.
  • Weight trees should be placed close to plate-loaded equipment.
  • All equipment should be placed 15cm away from mirrors.
facility layout and scheduling11
FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Arranging Equipment in the Strength and Conditioning Facility

Traffic flow

  • Around perimeter of exercise area.
  • One walk way through the middle.
  • Should be at least 91cm wide.

Stretching and warm-up area

  • 4.5m2 area per athlete
facility layout and scheduling12
FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Arranging Equipment in the Strength and Conditioning Facility

Circuit-training area

  • All machine’s should be a minimum 61cm preferably 91cm apart.

Free weights

  • Olympic bars 91cm apart.
  • The area for one free-weight station should accommodate 3-4 people.

Olympic lifting area

  • The area should accommodate 3-4 people, only one training at a time.
facility layout and scheduling13
FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Arranging Equipment in the Strength and Conditioning Facility

Aerobic area

  • 2.2m2 for bikes and stair machines, 3.7m2 for rowers, 4.2m2 for treadmills.
facility layout and scheduling14
FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Scheduling the Strength and Conditioning Facility

Seasonal Priority and Peak Hours

  • In-season teams have priory over off-season teams.
  • In-season teams will be in gym for less time than off-season teams.
  • Schedule teams so that there is no over crowding.
  • Rehabilitation athletes scheduled during down time.
facility layout and scheduling15
FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Scheduling the Strength and Conditioning Facility

Group size and equipment availability

  • Must know maximum number of athletes that can use the gym.
  • May have to divide teams into positions.
facility layout and scheduling16
FACILITY LAYOUT AND SCHEDULING

Scheduling the Strength and Conditioning Facility

Staff-to-athlete ratio

  • Must be able to have optimal instruction and supervision.
  • Beginners 1:10, intermediate 1:15 and experienced 1:20. Should never be over 1:50.
  • Type of training circuit training does not need as much supervision as Olympic lifts.
