“We needed to get more students in the weight room, and it’s a dream come true because that’s exactly what’s happening now (here at second Baptist). The expertise of Samson Equipment has been instrumental in making this happen. Not only do they understand the equipment, but their team includes former strength coaches who understand the vision and platform of how to train students. It’s been a pleasure to work with them and see the results in our weight room.”
– Nick Mascioli, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach
At Samson Equipment, we understand the importance of a well-equipped weight room for schools and their athletic programs. That’s why we were thrilled to partner with Second Baptist School to overhaul their outdated facility, which was struggling to meet the needs of their student population.As former strength coaches ourselves, we know firsthand the value of a weight room as a central hub for an athletic department and a place where students can develop lifelong habits for taking care of their bodies. When Second Baptist School approached us with their vision for a renovated weight room with increased functionality and capacity, we knew we could help bring it to life.
“It’s been amazing to see the growth of this program, and samson equipment has played a key role in helping us expand the weight room even further. Their partnership has allowed us to get even more kids in here which executes our mission on an even higher level.”
– Mike Walker, Director of Athletics
The result is a beautifully renovated space that includes 8 double-sided functional training flex-racks with single leg squat attachments, landmine attachments, and plate storage, 16 Samson combo benches with vertical storage, 16 Powerblock dumbbells, 6 Samson bar storage solutions, and Samson vertical med ball storage. This upgrade included all new custom plates with the schools colors and logos on them. These additions allow for a wider range of exercises to be performed and help increase the amount of students that can train at the same time.
We’re proud to have played a part in helping Second Baptist School create a weight room that will serve as a center of gravity for their athletic department and provide students with the tools they need to improve their strength and conditioning. If you’re interested in updating your school’s weight room, we’d love to discuss your vision and see how we can help bring it to life.
