1. Reduce Clutter
Many fitness facilities are bogged down with all of the accessory items such as mats, kettlebells, stability balls, etc. Choose an innovative and efficient way to store your accessories that free up floor space and keep things looking clean and well-kept.
2. Choose Innovative Equipment
The fitness industry is full of vendors and equipment providers that offer innovative products that are both exciting to consumers and space efficient. Popular items such as treadmills and ellipticals are now made with a smaller footprint, thus taking up less floor space. Some pieces, such as various rowing machines, offer unique storage solutions that allow them to be folded up and easily put away when not in use.
3. Use versatile equipment. Avoid single modality machines.
Gone are the days where clubs and fitness facilities were filled only with bulky, unattractive machines that work one muscle group at a time. Consumers are demanding more and providers have responded by introducing new solutions that address the unnecessary use of too much floor space. Search for equipment that allows users to work multiple muscle groups with one machine. Many cable pulley based machines offer versatility and are being made to appeal to the eye. Technogym’s Kinesis Heritage allows users to perform over 200 exercises on one machine!
4. Invest in Functional Space
Give your personal trainers a chance to shine! Functional space allows room for more creativity and will help you retain world class trainers and validate top notch programming. There are many options for delivering this and much of the equipment needed and used in functional training areas is just downright fun to use!
