Launching our new gym facility at Portobello Institute

When it came to kitting out our new sports facilities at Portobello Institute we only wanted the best so BLK BOX Fitness were the obvious choice for us.

BlkBox Fitness are renowned for their gym facility construction and equipment provision. They have kitted out many of Ireland’s top facilities, including the gym at Santry Sports Surgery, Dublin GAA, as well as facilities throughout the UK including Everton Football Club.

Practical facilities are an essential part of becoming a competent applied practitioner in Sports Therapy, Sports Science or Physical Education. To continue to promote practitioner competencies development within our students, we have invested in a new state of the art sports facility.

For the coming academic years, students will be using this facility on a weekly basis to put their knowledge and skills gained in to action. Our Sports Therapy students will benefit from using this facility to practice advanced sports rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies. Our Sports Science and Physical Education students will benefit from using this facility for practical coaching and testing sessions.

Additionally, our new BSc in Performance Analysis students will be using this facility extensively for technical strength and conditioning programming, coaching and biomechanical evaluation.

We are excited to continue our sports department growth, dedicated to developing the next generation of elite sports practitioners.  Our full time degree students join us in a few weeks time and we can’t wait for them to try out our fab new facilities.
