540 m2 where top performances are created for Borussia Mönchengladbach
Neptunus has once again delivered a building that will be used daily for high-level sports. Borussia Mönchengladbach, playing in the German Bundesliga, has had a new Performance Centre built by Neptunus. This space will be used for fitness and rehabilitation training for the first team and youth section of the professional football club.
“We were previously limited space wise for fitness work, so we couldn’t work effectively with the whole group. The Performance Centre now offers us that possibility at a very high level. The first team as well as the youth teams can now use the space when they need it throughout the day,” explained sporting director Roland Virkus.
Establishing the Performance Centre
For the Performance Centre, Mönchengladbach has chosen the Neptunus’ Flexolution technology. A Flexolution II is set up for meeting and office rooms of the technical staff and video analysis. Behind these rooms, a 30-metre sprint track has been constructed where performance staff can always measure certain values of the players under the same conditions. A separate area for the goalkeepers to train has also been created.
Next to the Flexolution II, a Flexolution III was built for a large fitness area. This is used for cardio, stabilisation and strength training and is equipped with modern equipment. “The Performance Centre is a big step in the direction of modern fitness training, that will allow us to work more efficiently and in a more targeted manner,” explained Alexander Mouhcine, head of performance, prevention and rehabilitation.
Fully equipped with necessary equipment
Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Performance Centre is fully equipped with all necessary installations for a long term installation, such as climate control, ventilation and fire alarm systems. The walls, floors and ceilings are completely designed in the black-and-green colours of the football club. In addition, the club’s successes are stylishly displayed on the walls. In this way, an inspiring and motivating space has been created where the top athletes can get the best out of themselves and hopefully chalk up even more awards.
