CST has a gym, a weights room and an outdoor functional training area as well as various items of equipment for weight and cardiovascular training.

  • The Gottardo gym comes with a variety of equipment to improve fitness and general muscle training. The room is ideal for a full body workout and is aimed at athletes of all levels. State-of-the-art equipment means that even occasional users can exercise correctly.
  • The Naviglio weights room is set up with the necessary equipment for free weights training in order to exercise different muscle groups.
  • The functional training area helps develop athletic potential using exercises and motion sequences that work several joints and muscle groups at the same time. This type of training requires no equipment and very few resources. It can be used to improve general fitness or to train for a specific discipline.
