However no matter the variety of training forms, the thing that all have in common is competition, a vital idea to exercise and improvement.
In terms of the issues above, an open program space which enables to exercise only if you are a pair was created. It was crucial to take into consideration a variety of floor typologies which enable a number of training routines. The presentation consists of a 3 floor system which can be multiplied by adding sections. Access is provided through an elevator with sensors that moves only to the first level and only if there are 2 individuals inside. The only way to level up is to pass through each level and use the spiral running track which connects the levels. The typologies presented are a product of a theoretical analysis based on a demanding workout. The analysis focuses on relation to the floor and the movement of body parts through workout routine.
