Tri Fitness Performance, Guernsey

Tri Fitness Performance, Guernsey is fast becoming the premier fitness provider to the people living on and visiting the island. This superb establishment was born out of the special friendship between Russ Smith and Paul De Garis, who can be seen every day coaching you at TRI Fitness. 

Russ, formerly a Navigator in the Royal Air Force, employs a methodical approach to training, ensuring that any programme produced by Tri Fitness is laser focused and of the highest standard possible. Currently studying for the most esteemed Triathlon coaching qualification, Russ is becoming well known as a creditable Triathlon Coach. He is keen to expand his knowledge in both Triathlon and Strength & Conditioning training, which has formed the basis of his time in the fitness industry so far.   

Paul certainly knows how to succeed in the sports arena. He is currently a member of the Guernsey FC Squad and has played football to a high level in the UK. Never one to settle, and already a qualified British Triathlon Level 2 Coach, Paul, aka Digger, completed his first Ironman Triathlon earlier this year and is hungry for more!

Digger’s approach to training is a rare blend of individual programme design, methodical progression and the fun and intensity required to get results, whatever your goals.  He wants to encourage and educate people on how to enjoy great health and vitality, whilst ensuring results in no time at all! Digger has worked in the fitness industry for over seven years, including a major UK health club chain. His main areas of expertise and focus are in junior athletic conditioning, pre & post natal exercise and GP referred medical conditions.

Russ and Paul's coaching philosophy provides an education, as well as a training solution, for every individual working with Tri Fitness. The understanding that "Life is a Balance" can help everyone to establish a relationship with Tri Fitness that suits their own individual lifestyle. “Work hard, train hard, live easy but MAKE IT FUN” is the shared motto to take you on your fitness journey.

The Brief: 

Russ and Paul wanted to transform the existing fixed resistance room into a new 50 square metre functional training area, maximising all available space. The aim was to utilise the walls, supply additional strength and conditioning equipment to the main gym area and provide 2 flooring options (functional and free weights) along with a range of new accessories.

The Result: 

Following our visit to this fabulous facility in Guernsey, and subsequent meeting in the UK, it was agreed that the Training Wall would be perfect for the new functional training area. To maximise the space we supplied and installed a 10 panel solution, along with 2 Gym Gear folding wall racks on the opposite wall. To help separate the functional area from the main gym floor we supplied 2 different types of flooring, red synthetic turf to complement the Tri Fitness brand identity, and black rubber gym flooring for the gym/free weights area. We provided 2 Inspire Fitness FT2 functional trainers and an Olympic multi rack & bench. Dumbbells, including storage and accessories, were supplied to complement the existing strength equipment.
