What to know about fitting out a new gym
At hebs Group we are proud of our specialist leisure and fitness fit-out services and ongoing collaboration with some of the fastest growing gym chains in the country.
Gym membership is a competitive market, and while the spike in registrations over the New Year period shows fitness is still a priority for many people, the drop-off by the time February arrives really highlights the importance of customer retention in this sector.
A focus on quality and customer service when fitting out a new gym can play a big part in ensuring your premises are as appealing as possible to keep new users coming back again and again.
With hebs Group’s help, you can cover all the bases and create a venue that really competes in this crowded but lucrative market – here are just a few things to consider.
Use of space
Making the best use of the space you have available is essential, and we can help from the initial design stage right through to installing your fitness equipment.
Sensible division and partition of space can maximise the area available for gym equipment, free weight areas, side rooms for classes, changing rooms and so on.
We can work with you to understand exactly what you need from your facilities and ensure the shell of the building creates the various different zones as required.
Colour and design
People no longer want to work out in a boxy room with mirrors on one wall – gyms and fitness centres need to offer engaging interior design that is enjoyable to visit on a regular basis.
Use of colour is one method that has often been neglected in the past in gyms, but can help to reinforce positive perceptions of your brand and even encourage people to exercise harder or more consistently.
Again, we can help you with any decisions regarding colour schemes and interior decorations, which can influence the initial layout plans in terms of straight or curved walls, partitioned vs. open-plan spaces and so on.
Washrooms and HVAC
Finally, don’t forget the specific facilities you’ll need to complete your premises to a high standard.
At hebs Group we install shower rooms and other wet areas, and commission HVAC equipment for effective and efficient operation.
To find out more about any of these capabilities, get in touch today by calling 0151 236 0707 or email email@example.com and we can help to ensure your new gym fitout is completed to the highest standard.
