Recently McDonald County High School worked with Sporturf dealer Craig Shonk of Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals to install a brand new custom football field for their athletes.

Sporturf Keeps You Training

It is important for athletes to remember that varying up your workout routine is key to staying motivated and continuously improving, but how do you keep it interesting when your environment limits you? You’re training on the same old surface, in poor weather and the results just aren’t there.

We all know an hour of the same monotonous reps over and over again is not something many people would run and jump out of bed for. Workouts need to be new, challenging and most of all fun! If they aren’t, Netflix and potato chips will always sound like a better alternative.

Performing agility training on synthetic turf will allow you to train in exciting and challenging new ways, making workouts something you look forward to and something that is going to provide results. With Sporturf™ supplying both indoor and outdoor synthetic turf, weather is no longer an obstacle for your fitness development.

Not only does indoor synthetic turf provide more opportunities for variety, it provides better support and is visually appealing compared to your typical concrete or rubber gym floor. Sporturf’s solid product design and available color options, make our products a must have item in gyms and CrossFit.

In the sports world we know the appropriate playing surface can make all the difference in an athlete’s performance and career. Which is why Sporturf™ is here with turf for every application. The Sporturf™ team of highly qualified sales managers strategically placed across the United States will help you select the perfect synthetic turf for you next project. We know that our turf is the most durable and highest performing product on the market. We will deliver your project on time, on required spec and within budget.
