The secrets to designing a stand-out fitness studio

Supplier: EXF Fitness

The design and construction of a group fitness or exercise studio can have a big impact on the success of your gym. While most studios look reasonably similar, it’s important to think about the type of classes on your timetable and what classes you might want to run in the future. That way, you can design a space which is purpose-built for multiple activities.

Here are a few important things to consider when designing a studio.

Smart storage

One of the biggest complaints gyms get is overcrowding in the studios. Create as much space as possible with smart storage solutions to store kit when not in use. At EXF, we can even create storage solutions that transform into a usable piece of kit. For example, a stack of 25 steps can be screened off with a branded wall ball. You could even consider incorporating Swedish ladders so that your studio can quickly evolve to be used for smaller group training or as a PT studio. Be creative. Storage doesn’t need to be boring.

Also, it may sound dull, but clear labels can help keep your studio looking neat, tidy and spacious. When people know where to put things, it allows instructors to spend less time sorting and organising kit.

Bespoke branding

Blank walls are boring. Make the space pop with bespoke design features that tie into your brand voice. Even better, make those branded walls functional. Add anchor points for more kit or incorporate a wall ball and rebound targets. There’s no reason why it can’t look great and be functional too.

Functional flooring

Flooring is more than decorative - it is instrumental in enhancing the functionality and safety of the space. While most studios opt for wooden sprung flooring, many are starting to consider rubberising the studio floor because it is hard-wearing, easy to clean and opens the space up for a larger variety of activity. Other materials like vinyl, latex, turf and functional carpets can also be considered if it matches with the way in which you want your studio to be used. Remember: you can’t chuck slam balls onto a sprung floor, so if you envision this sort of workout on your timetable, pick a floor to match.

“Overall, the most important thing to consider when designing a studio is how the space will be used. Make sure you have an open line of communication between you, the studio managers and your supplier. Most of all, have an open mind for how your studio will work now and in the future,” says Danny Armsby, business development director for EXF.
