Our project was to transform an old, underutilised existing swimming pool storage/training area into a new, highly occupied, combined indoor cycling and Functional Training Studio. To ensure the room is multi configurable and ensure it can cater for future trends. To offer a studio that gives users a much more enhancedprovision of spinning than currently offered. To offer a brand new format of classes E.G. HIIT classes to users. To increase revenue generated by new members and retaining existing members for longer than current. To facilitate growth in personal training revenue and secondary income. To further enhance the facilities provision of accessible fitness for all types of user; EG older, youth, male, female, conditioned, de-conditioned.
Previous Situation (before)
Accessed via stairs down from the gym, the area consists of an entrance corridor with bathroom and storage room adjoining. Leading into the first room with access to poolside via doors and a rear door accessing the second rear room. The second room has stairs and doors leading down to a separate foyer which is not used for access. The foyer is fire escape for upstairs gym. The whole area is dated and has not been decorated or maintained as a functioning user space –purely used for storage at the moment. All services and electricity currently functioning. Structurally sound. Mostly cosmetic work required.
The Solution (after)
Fully refurbish the whole area (stairs, corridor, bathroom, partial refurb of storage room, 2 x main rooms) following brand guidelines of Vision RCL. Raise corridor ceiling to open services –industrial. Take out existing floor and replace with entrance wood plank and rubber in gym area. Install air conditioning system,. Create mostly open plan area by taking out approximately half of the wall between the 2 rooms –support lintel installed. Install indoor cycling bikes and Queenax Functional Training Studio. Install new audio and visual system. Full training provided.
