Back in September, we published a story about an ambitious project underway at Kansas State University. The school’s campus rec department decided to convert its five racquetball courts into Performance Zones with various types of workout equipment and flooring for different workouts.
According to Steve Martini, the director of recreational services at Kansas State, the Performance Zones had their grand opening on January 22 and have been a huge success in the month they’ve been available for students to use. Following the trend of converting underused racquetball courts into versatile workout spaces, Kansas State has created an area that gives students the freedom to workout in almost any way they’d like.
Completed in November, each zone has a variety of equipment pieces that allow students to do different exercises, including CrossFit and several functional training workouts. The spaces are also equipped with special flooring — four courts have composite rubber flooring and the last has turf flooring.
