Waukee High School
Location: Waukee, Iowa
Project: 5200 sf Aktiv Pro Roll 1” – Thunder Gray, 28 inlaid platforms with custom logos, 1500 sf ConnorTraction Pro Traxx 10mm vulcanized rubber training track
Installer: SPEC Athletic
Waukee High School looked to revitalize their weight room and installing an indoor rubber track. They started with removing the old Mondo flooring and rolled rubber flooring. Then SPEC removed the carpet tiles from the hallway where the track flooring would be installed. Once the floor had been prepped, SPEC installed 5200 sqft of Aktiv Pro Roll 1″ in Thunder Grey. Then 28 inlaid platforms were installed with the Aktiv Pro Roll 1″. ConnorTraction Pro Traxx 10mm was layed in the hallway for 1,500 sqft.
The inlaid platforms offer a new level of safety and versatility to the weight room and the athletic teams who use it. Using raised platforms constrains the space to one type of exercise. This is a static exercise. The floor level platforms allow for agility training and circuit training to be done on the floors without the tripping and falling hazard of raised platforms. The Aktiv pro inserts prevent bounce back from dropping heavy weights. When doing heavy cleans or dead lifts, many athletic teams have problems with the bounce back of the weights. The Aktiv Pro Roll inserts prevent that bounce back making the workout safer and easier to accomplish.
The ConnorTraction Pro Traxx 10mm vulcanized rubber training track allows for Waukee High School athletic teams to incorporate agility training into their strength and conditioning programs. These indoor tracks give athletic teams the option to train indoors as well when inclement weather prevents them from using the field. Instead of sending kids home, they now have the option to keep them indoors and train sprints, ladders, and other agility conditioning exercises.
