Shane Victorino Nicetown Boys and Girls Club: Providing Underserved Youth with New Opportunities
Regupol America champions reinvention in recycled rubber flooring and is just as innovative when it comes to helping serve underprivileged youth. In a partnership with the Shane Victorino Foundation (SVF), Regupol enlisted the help of several industry friends to supply a full flooring solution for Shane Victorino’s landmark renovation of the Nicetown Boys and Girls Club in Philadelphia, PA.
Like the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, the Shane Victorino Foundation is dedicated to helping the nation’s youth. With the reopening of the Nicetown facility, SVF has created a unique space that provides a safe haven for kids to learn, grow, and explore the world through education, sports, and recreation. The 105-year-old facility celebrated its grand reopening ceremony on September 22nd, 2011.
Custom Installation Yields Amazing Results
Regupol America donated more than 9,100 square feet of Regupol® Aktiv™ recycled rubber sports flooring and 2,300 square feet of Regupol® shock absorbing underlayment to the Nicetown facility. Robbins Sports Surfaces of Cincinnati, OH, donated the gymnasium floor, while Abacus Sports Installations, Ltd., of Lancaster, PA, donated the installation of the Regupol and Robbins products.
CROSSFIT: Tough on the Body. Tough on the Floor.
We at Regupol America know that Regupol sports and fitness flooring is made to withstand the heaviest of workouts, because it’s been tried and tested by one of the world’s most intensive training methods – CrossFit. As the principal strength and conditioning program employed by police academies, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and professional athletes worldwide, it’s become a global phenomena in the health and fitness arena. CrossFit workouts push athletes’ physical limits and mental dedication.
While bodies strain to meet their personal goals, the facility floor underneath takes a regular beating. CrossFit programs utilize barbells, tires, boxes, and kettlebells, which when dropped can strain even the toughest floors. CrossFit floors need ultimate durability, making Regupol America the flooring choice of CrossFit devotees nationwide.
REGUPOL and CROSSFIT: A Tough Combination
The CrossFit Games is an ultimate test of fitness – a grueling, three-day competition in which the world’s fittest athletes compete in a variety of workouts. Regupol America was a proud sponsor of the 2010 games, held in Carson, CA. The CrossFit Games is limited to 50 men and 60 women, all of whom need to qualify to enter.
Through their sponsorship, Regupol America ensured that while these hard-burning athletes pushed their bodies to the ultimate limits, the floor underfoot was equal to the task. Regupol products, due to their advanced manufacturing technology, offer the density, resilience, and wear resistance demanded by the CrossFit Games. Regupol America provided 12,000 square feet of Regupol® Aktiv™ flooring to ensure the athletes’ safety and help boost their performance.
Regupol products show fierce performance, making them the #1 demanded CrossFit surface. Together with supplier and CrossFit Partner Rogue Fitness, Regupol America brings support and excellence to CrossFit floors throughout the nation.
