"DURING THE RE-DESIGN OF OUR FACILITY, WE HAD 3 MAIN OBJECTIVES; IMPROVE WORKFLOW, INCREASE THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE SPACE, AND INSTALL HIGH-QUALITY EQUIPMENT - THAT'S WHAT MADE SMAI THE EASY OPTION FOR US."
- RYAN BAILEY, STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH FOR ST GEORGE ILLAWARRA DRAGONS
The St George Illawarra Dragons are a National Rugby League (NRL) club. SMAI are proud to support the team by providing them with the optimal equipment they need to excel throughout the season.
SMAI have been supporting the St George Illawarra Dragons since 2017 and are dedicated to helping them achieve their goals in the gym and on the field.
At SMAI, we know how crucial it is to make the most out of your unique space. That’s why we carefully designed the layout of the Dragon’s High Performance Centre, placing each piece of equipment in the best position to promote efficiency.
The first section of the Dragon’s High Performance Centre is fitted with the 3cm SMAI jigsaw matting to offer the players a functional space for plyometrics, trunk and accessory work.
A second section of the space was dedicated to providing the athletes with an accessory area, complete with a full set of dumbbells with storage, benches and a custom 4 cell rig. This gives the players the equipment and space they need to conduct exercises like single leg squats, incline rows, nordix and power exercises.
To complete the space, the Dragon’s High Performance Centre was fit out with a main lifting area, including 5 custom SMAI half power racks. These racks are designed to withstand heavy loads that elite NRL players train with, whilst providing versatility for various exercise selection.
