A first time not only for Brazil: the first OUTRACE structure in South America has recently been installed in São Paulo, precisely in the wonderful Les Cinq Gym. Inaugurated five years ago by the personal trainer, fitness model and entrepreneur Rodrigo Sangion, this club represents a real excellence both for its design and for the top-level equipment.
Les Cinq Gym: the club
Developed over 4 floors, for a total of around 2.500 m² of space, Les Cinq Gym is indeed characterized by a dim light suggestive ambience which perfectly combines with the luxury interior design of the building, signed by Kiko Sobrino, and of the newest Technogym equipment (it is also the first club in South America with the Artis Black line).
Les Cinq Gym ‘s OUTRACE H9 structure
Les Cinq’s OUTRACE is an elegant Black-Black H-9 structure (four pillars and one single 9m long beam), which has been specially customized to perfectly fit the room on the third floor where it is located: a narrow and long space that has completely been revolutionized by OUTRACE, providing at the same time infinite training possibilities and a design that perfectly matches the club’s ambience.
“With OUTRACE there is no space for monotony – told Waldyr Maciel, coordinator of the training activities of Les Cinq Gym, in a recent interview to Harper’s Bazaar Brasil –. Everything is very dynamic: every single component or tool enables allows to perform more than 30 different exercises”.
An enthusiasm that is confirmed also by the founder of the gym, Rodrigo Sangion:
“OUTRACE is a different and innovative way of making exercises, with astonishing results. It is our main update for the upcoming summer, and it has everything for being appreciated by our members”.
The structure, that completely covers the space from one wall to the other and has been adapted to a reduced height in order to fit the ceiling, can host up to 15 users at the same time, for Circuit Training or Interval Training sessions with different levels and goals.
Components and Apps
It has been equipped with all sorts of suspension, functional and athletic training components and equipment, including Flying, Trapezex, Training Ladder, Flyo, Ball Trampoline, Dips Bar and Plyo Board, but also OUTRACE tools such as Giant Med Balls, Gym Ropes, Flow Bags and Kettlebells.
Another interesting application of the structure is enabled by the PB Rail which has been installed along the central beam: thanks to the PB Block system, it is indeed possible to move and block the 5 Punching Bags in order to take advantage of the whole space beneath the structure for combat sports training classes, and then to store them back in a corner in order to perform other activities.
