A middle or high school’s fitness center empowers students to develop healthy lifestyles, allowing for sustained health and wellness practices. In turn, many schools notice increased classroom participation and engagement when students are actively using school fitness centers, as well as a greater sense of community amongst those students.?

Our fitness design consultants have worked with hundreds of middle and high schools across the country, helping each one to construct an optimal fitness center within their budgets and space limitations.

New Rejoice High School
A big challenge for many High School facilities is a lack of space. New Rejoice High School asked us to incorporate as many racks and platforms as possible while maintaining the flow and functionality of the room. Safety is also a big consideration in high school weight rooms, so we needed to ensure that we were providing enough lifting space for each student or athlete. We achieved this by installing Hammer Strength HD Elite Half Racks that included band, bar, and plate storage as well as PLAE inlaid platforms. Unlike older style wood platforms, the inlaid platforms provide a flush lifting zone allowing the coach to roll back the bars and use the platforms as functional space when they are not in use. Using PLAE flooring with agility ladders and dot drills integrated right into the floor was also a huge benefit. The way we maximized the floor space left the room feeling open and functional with the ability to still warm up and stretch.

Dick Romshek. PE Teacher/ Assistant Athletic Director.
When we embarked on outfitting a new weight room space at our high school, Laura Emrich and the Advanced Exercise crew were an overwhelming choice for everything from the design of the room to delivery and installation of the most high quality, yet cost-effective equipment we could find. Their timeliness and attention to detail made the process as painless as it could possibly be. Laura was without peer in keeping in contact, making sure we were happy with everything, and providing all the support and technical information we needed to get the most out of our new weight room. We know that we will continue to use Advanced Exercise for our training equipment needs in the future.

Tim and Advanced Exercise have been a tremendous help to our programs here at Troy Buchanan High School for the last five years. From designing weight room floor plans, to suggesting the best equipment for the best price that fits your budget , to getting us the personal service that is so hard to find in today’s society. They are able to get us the best prices with the utmost quality in the equipment, we have purchased for our three new weight rooms. The Advanced Exercise staff has always shown the highest level of professionalism and always shows a great level of initiative to get the job done to your satisfaction. Simply put, they are always a pleasure to do business with.

Tom Sumner. Strength Coach.
Advanced Exercise has been a partner with Eureka High School’s Strength and Conditioning program for over 15 years. Tim has been not only been a sales rep but a partner in helping us provide our students with the best quality equipment within our budget. Tim has been more of a consultant than a salesman, working with us to keep safe quality equipment in our room by presenting different options and allowing us to choose the best course of action to satisfy our needs. Tim never pressured us to buy certain brands or unnecessary equipment that we may not need. Additionally service after the sale has been awesome, if something goes awry he will try to fix or replace to best of his ability.

Chuck Bailey. District Athletic Director.
We feel like Mustang Public Schools purchased the “top of the line” weight equipment on the market today. After sales, service is one of the most important areas to think about when making a purchase of this kind. Jay Gallagher and his staff at Advanced Exercise have been very helpful in this crucial area.
Phoenix USD. Phoenix, AZ.
Manny Calderon. District Athletic Director.
Through our association and partnership with Advanced Exercise and Bob Dicandia, Phoenix Union High School District, students, and community have benefited tremendously throughout our 13 schools. Much in part to the top quality of the Life Fitness & Hammer Strength equipment and that of Bob’s expertise, service, attention to detail, and tireless work on our districts behalf, our district’s weight room facilities have become the envy and standard of excellence for other districts to follow. We could not have made a better choice. Specifically our students, teachers and coaches give high marks of assessment, for making a true difference in their health and wellness conditioning programs.
