Gravity Lab for action sports opens in Munich, Germany

Dec '16
The Gravity Lab, designed for the training of freestyle sports, for amateurs and professional athletes, with weather-independent access to all freestyle sports, has been opened in Munich, Germany for classic outdoor activities such as free-skiing, snowboarding, parkour, free-running, tricking, freestyle acrobatics, surf, skate, bike, BMX, and wakeboard.

The sports lab is present in a hip reconstruction business park in an area called “Die Werkstadt,” or ‘The Workcity,” with companies like GoPro and Planet Sports as headquarters.

Without any funding, Sabine Schmalschläger opened the Gravity Lab with 1700 square metres in the fall of 2016, after four years of planning. She’s supported by the brands Under Armour, Blue Tomato, and GoPro. The action camera specialists are also at the hall in Stuttgart, together with K2, TSG, and Burton.

The Gravity Lab is divided into four areas; namely a parkour area with tumbling tracks, airtracks, slacklines, and rod scaffolding – with the focus on acrobatic training; the feeling for airtime and rotations in the air can be trained on nine freestyle trampolines and two freestyle super trampolines; Bowls, mini-ramps, and kickers offer training options with rollskiing, skateboarding, BMX, etc; and a big-air ramp with three jump options and landing in a airbag is ideal for training new tricks or after injuries.

Freestyles from all over the world have already used the Gravity Lab’s training options. (GK)
