What to consider when looking at Gym/Fitness Interior Design?
A common problem for any gym owner or fitness center manager is the challenge of creating an engaging atmosphere that motivates people to stay and work out. In order to do this, it’s important to hire a professional designer who understands the needs of exercisers as well as the unique design constraints of a fitness facility. One consideration is whether to use all mirrored walls or a reflective surface that creates a sense of space, openness, and light. Another consideration for gym designers is how best to address the “mirror-selfie syndrome”—aka mirrors everywhere! Mirrors are great for checking form, but they can also be distracting, making exercisers self-conscious of appearances instead of focusing on their workout.
Designing a gym is about more than just choosing attractive floor coverings and wall colors. Fitness center owners must think carefully about how to create engaging spaces that will appeal to potential members. For example, the fitness center should include space for coaching and training, zones for yoga and Pilates, and equipment that will appeal to different users. For example, cardio machines like stair steppers and elliptical machines can be arranged in a way that promotes group exercise or competitive team events like boot camps.
