It's split into two separate sections: a FIFA-approved sports medicine centre, and a fitness club. The wide range of facilities on offer include a large gym, which has been equipped by Cybex – featuring 40 pieces of 770 series CV, 20 pieces of Eagle Strength, Bravo functional trainers and free weights – alongside Concept2, Woodway and HUR's medical strength equipment.
