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, a large jumping foam pit, a trampoline area, a rock climbing wall, a 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, 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 a 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.
