We're delighted to announce that newly promoted Championship rugby team Richmond FC, will be partnering with The Foundry to fulfil their strength and conditioning requirements. The second oldest team in the world chose The Foundry as the base for their S&C training due to the elite facility and coaching team. Head fitness coach Sam Ross said:

"The Foundry has all the elements of a professional setup. We're delighted to join forces with the team to ensure a successful season for Richmond FC as we embark on our new journey in the Championship. There aren't many facilities and coaching teams like The Foundry anywhere."

Our Training Director Ben Gotting acknowledged that having Richmond around would be a positive addition to the unique Foundry environment:

"We set up The Foundry to offer the sort of fitness training you would find in a professional athletic setup, whilst ensuring it is suitable for all ages and abilities, so it's great to see this vision acknowledged by a leading rugby team too. We know our members will also be excited to have Richmond FC on-board and we wish them the very best for their new season in the Championship"

The boys will also be joining in some of our classes as part of their training regime so please do say hello and welcome them to The Foundry family.
