Collingwood FC Convert to Theralux
We were delighted when Collingwood Football Club chose to install TheTheralux Complete Mineral System to their training pool at Melbourne's Olympic Park training complex.
The Pies fans in the office took the opportunity to have a chat with the Collingwood facilities team to find out why they converted and if the Theralux Mineral system gets a resounding thumbs up from the athletes and coaches alike?
Collingwood FC Facilities Team - Case Study
At Collingwood we try to keep ahead of the curve in terms of sports science and facilities for our players. The club is home to over 400 athletes and there’s obviously a lot to consider around the type of training regimes we operate, so we collaborate with the coaches to ensure our facilities are second to none.
One of the recent upgrades we made was to our pool which is integral to players fitness training, physiotherapy and post game recovery. When you’re competing at the level our players do, speeding up recovery time is crucial, so we did our research and adopted the latest science to support our competitive edge.
We knew we wanted players to enjoy the physical and mental benefits of mineral infused water but we were surprised at how easy it was to convert!
We initially received quotes advising us that we’d need to rebuild the complete plant room at a huge cost until we discovered Theralux who were able to offer us a simple conversion incorporating some of the existing equipment. Win Win!
The conversion of our pool was done in a day and the feedback from our athletes has been just great! Players are really noticing the physical benefits of recovering in a Theralux magnesium pool. We’ve consistently been told it’s aiding the speed of muscle recovery and the pool is certainly getting more use now. From a facilities perspective we’re delighted with the reduction in maintenance, enhanced water quality and reduced use of chemicals.
