In May 2017 we realized that our little Tay Ho box desperately needed some serious 'reconditioning'! The problems with our flooring started to affect the quality and safety of workouts, especially when heavy barbell work was involved. And although we all loved the patina of the box… we felt that a bucket of fresh paint and some new shelfs would do good as well. So we gathered the community and started a project!

When you start digging deep in the basement of a house in Hanoi… well, we discovered that there was no foundation, no concrete or whatsoever beneath the layers of gym mats, wood and (hollow) tiles of our box floor.
Hard work needs a strong team!
After taking out the old floor and paving over the concrete we could finally start to place the new shiny blue gym mats (made in Vietnam!).
And here is the result… our new 'heaven of gains'!
