The Montboucons Gymnasium and Sports Complex preparation center is located in the heart of the Temis district, an economic and university center in a calm area, ideal for the practice of sports. It is made up of four sports facilities that optimally accommodate many top-level athletes in training or competition. The facility offers all the services that athletes need: spacious training areas, weight rooms, treatment and recovery areas. All the equipment can be adjusted on demand. The center is accessible by bus, close to the heart of the city of Besançon, a friendly, dynamic place. It is also very accessible by vehicle and has its own free, secure car park. The site offers a hotel and catering on site or a 5-minute walk away, depending on the type of accommodation chosen. Ideally located, athletes will not be disturbed in their preparation. Less than 10 minutes from the health care services of the University Hospital (CHU), this fully equipped site will be the ideal place for optimal preparation combining concentration and relaxation by alternating sessions of intense training and facilitated recovery. This preparation complex is one of the 7 centers selected in the greater Besançon area. It will benefit from all of the associated services for the complete care of the athletes: transport, translation services, a personalized welcome and access to the Sports Performance Optimization Center (hypoxia chamber, cryotherapy, hyper-bar chamber), a unique structure in Besançon that is open to athletes in training. @Copyright Besançon & Grand Besançon
