  • Description

    ONE OF THE MOST FORTUNATE GROUPS OF ATHLETES IN MEXICO CITY SO FAR AS TRAINING FACILITIES ARE CONCERNED ARE THE BOXERS, WEIGHTLIFTERS AND WRESTLERS WHOSE TRAINING AREA IS A COMPLEX OF AESTHETIC MODERN ARCHITECTURE.

    THE COLLECTION OF BUILDINGS ARE SURROUNDED BY SHRUBS AND GARDENS, AND THE INTERIORS ARE DELICATE AND RELAXING - SHARP CONTRAST WITH THE PHYSICAL EXERTIONS UNDERTAKEN BY THE ATHLETES.

    A FEATURE OF THE DESIGN IS THE BROAD SPACE PROVIDED FOR TRAINING. NATURAL LIGHT IS USED TO ADVANTAGE, COMPLEMENTED BY SUBDUED LEVEL ELECTRIC LIGHTING.

    A FURTHER CONTRAST IS PROVIDED BY THE INDOOR GARDENS WHICH ABOUND, THE PROFUSE FLOWERS AND RICH SHRUBS PROVIDING AND ADDED DASH OF COLOUR AND PERFUME.

    THE ALMOST EXOTIC ATMOSPHERE CREATED BY THE ARCHITECTURE AND FLORAL ADORNMENT IS SHATTERED BY THE INDELICATE TRAINING - THE THUDDING OF THE BOXERS, THE HEAVY BREATHING OF THE WRESTLERS AND THE GROANS OF EFFORT VOICED BY THE WEIGHTLIFTERS.
