The most important step in designing a fitness fitout is striking the right balance between the personal and the professional. We design and build gyms
that create an instant connection between your business and your clients, no matter what industry or services you work in.
Forget stark, boring spaces – the right fitness fitout will have a relaxed yet efficient ambience, which encourages your clients to communicate openly and gives them confidence they are dealing with a talented, professional team.
All this can be achieved through a thorough fitout planning and design process, using high quality construction and finishes. The result is a customised fitout that is as polished and professional as you are.
How to Design a Modern, Fresh Look for Your Gym or Fitness Studio
If you’re planning a fitout for your gym or fitness studio, you need to think about how to create a modern look that will last. While there might be something charming about a 1950s boxing gym, in a vintage way, most gym-goers and fitness fanatics today want something a bit more fresh to help them stay motivated. Whether they’re working out alone, getting instruction from a personal trainer or joining in with a fitness class, they need the right environment to improve their focus and make them want to keep pushing.
Light is extremely important in any environment, but it can have special importance anywhere that people are trying to concentrate and stay motivated. If you’re able to, making the most of natural light through windows, skylights and doors is a good start for your gym. However, not everyone is able to do this. Some gyms and fitness studios don’t have the benefit of large windows or even purposefully choose not to have them. This is where lighting needs to come in and provide the right amount of lighting for the space.
Consider your use of space when you’re planning your fitness studio fitout. For a modern look and feel, you’ll want it to feel airy. You don’t want your customers to feel like they don’t have space to move around. You need to have plenty of space for any equipment. Even in spaces where there might not need to be a lot of equipment, such as yoga studios, you need to make sure that everyone can have their personal space. Avoid making things too cluttered if you want to create an open and welcoming place that looks and feels modern.
A splash of colour will make any interiors look modern and fresh. You may not choose to have bright colours all over your fitness studio, but some colourful accents can make a huge difference to the atmosphere. Think about your brand colours and how you might use them throughout your business. Another thing to consider is your use of imagery, from photos to fun motifs. You don’t want your space to be boring and have no personality. Using colour and imagery, you can create a studio that’s energetic and inspiring, as well as motivational.
Although you might make use of some bright colours, a neutral and natural colour palette can be an excellent choice too. You can combine the two to ensure a space that is bothrelaxing and invigorating. Consider creating a studio inspired by nature, using natural materials such as wooden floors, to inspire your clients. Natural colours like greens and blues can add to a neutral base for a fitness
space that’s full of life. This style works particularly well for yoga and Pilates studios, and similar spaces where a relaxing ambience is required.
If your fitness studio has different spaces used for different purposes, consider how they’re going to bed used. A studio where spin classes will take place might have a completely different look to one where kickboxing classes are led or a space with gym equipment that your customers can use independently. Some spaces might be light and bright, while others might be darker and more brooding. There are many different ways to be contemporary and offer an environment that works for your customers. If you have a diverse range of clients, you need to take all of their needs into account.
Your gym or fitness studio should be polished and professional. When you’re thinking about the perfect modern fitout, it’s essential not to go overboard with your imagination. While you want to use creativity and have a space that works for your brand, you need to remember that it has to be a practical space that keeps you in a professional standing. It’s important to consider what today’s gym users and fitness enthusiasts are looking for in a workout space. You want to present your business as an up-to-date establishment that offers a quality experience. Your customers don’t want to be in a drab and uninspiring place that doesn’t make them want to get motivated for their workout.
