Incorporating functional training into the hotel fitness center isn’t nearly as difficult as one might think. Largely the first step in re-balancing the fitness space is to thin the herd.
Today’s best hotel and resort operators know that the lines between the commercial health club offering and the hospitality based fitness center are becoming increasingly blurred. A tremendous opportunity exists today for hotels and resorts to once again raise the bar and incorporate experiences crafted around trends that are presently driving the fitness industry.
To develop truly functional commercial exercise space, both the end-user and the facility operator’s objectives need be considered throughout the design process. It takes strong planning to clarify the objectives of both audiences sufficiently.
Fitness Design Group CEO Bryan Green says wellness is a significant part of today’s lifestyle, and tenants have increasing expectations of their fitness centers. Nearby health clubs still have draw, but they are incomparable to an on-site fitness space specifically tailored to tenants’ needs.
