Matrix Fitness is proud to be the official supplier of fitness equipment to Infiniti Red Bull Racing, and as part of the 3 year contract, has equipped an on-site gym in the team’s HQ, which will be used by drivers, the race team, and team employees to develop and maintain health, fitness and physical condition.
As the gym is based within the Red Bull Racing factory, all employees will be encouraged to use the equipment, putting into practice Team Principal Christian Horner’s vision to promote health and fitness in racing drivers and support staff alike.
“Experience has taught me that success and excellence are a result of combining first rate coaching with quality kit. It therefore made perfect sense to select Matrix Fitness as our official gym equipment supplier, as their commitment to excellence is reflected in their strong product range, their attention to detail, and their service back-up.”

We feel the equipment plays a pivotal role in limiting the number of injuries our players pick up, as well as reducing their time out of action.”
