FIT IS THE NEW SEXY

Life today is moving at such a fast pace that we often tend to overlook our health and fitness regime. Often overpowered by work and other pressures, we tend to loosen out & relax at various breakout zones- cafes, movies or a beer with friends. In the bargain we end up taking in more pressure in the form of calories and hence obesity.

Scientists claim that obesity in itself is a deadly disease that in one way or another puts tremendous mental pressure on individuals.

Working out under in a trained and professional environment can do wonders for the body and mind.

Earlier gymming used to be a tedious and demanding task that was done as last and final resort. It would not be anything close to enjoyment or relaxation. But now with the flooding in of various new construction materials and technology, we as designers have a huge platform to play on.

Lets get the basics right and try and analyse the do’s and don’ts while designing a fitness centre. I would like to categorise the discussion for my reader’s comfort. As a general thumb rule the space demarcation is as follows-

A WARM & WELCOMING RECEPTION AREA
LOCKERS ARE AN ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENT FOR GYMMING, SPA, STEAM AND RELATED SERVICES
JUICE BARS & HEALTH CAFES ARE BECOMING A
TRENDY ADD-ON
SPA ZONES AND STEAM FACILITIES ARE ADD-ON
SERVICES TO ATTRACT AND RELAX CUSTOMERS
