THE SPOT is the center of alternative and extreme sports, a place to discover yourself and your abilities, located in the very heart of Latvia - Riga. The total area of the center is 2,800 m2 and it has “street” and “park” skate disciplines, the large jumping foam pit, the trampoline area, the rock climbing wall, the fitness room, the acrobatic hall, and also plans to create audiovisual and technology space.
We were delighted to be chosen to assist in making a functional training area for young athletes and extreme sports addicts. The client's vision was to create a training zone, that would be attractive and would fit all discipline sportsmen - from parkour and classic fitness, up to rock-climbers.
After several drafts and ideas, we decided to make a dragon-back on the rig, for climbing and an additional section with removable bar for bar-to-bar jump training. Athletes would be able to remove a bar, place it further or closer and advance in jumping technique. Of course, we have also equipped the rig with dip bars, wall-ball targets, squat places, ring, and TRX attachment points and flying pull-up bars, which can be easily used in functional fitness classes.
