Florida Gators Strength and Conditioning
Griffin-Oakley Strength & Conditioning Complex
The new weight room is the crowning jewel of the James W. Heavener Football Complex. After the 2008 renovation, it features close to 25,000 square feet at the staff’s disposal.
“We can get more quality work done in a more efficient time,” said Director of Strength and Conditioning Mickey Marotti. “Now, instead of being smashed into a little area and waiting on things, we have more equipment, more space, and can position our staff in different places so the flow is one after another and they’re not wasting time.”
The Gators’ new weight room includes an area of turf that is 50 yards long, which also allows for multiple teams to use the weight room at the same time.
There is also no shortage of technology in the weight room. There are two stations set up that can take 360-degree video, which allows players to go back and work on technique which Marotti can break down on a telestrator. Add in a state-of-the-art sound system and high-def TVs and this weight room has it all.
