The Art & Design of Multi-Family Fitness Centers
November 13, 2017
Seems like having a fitness center at your fingertips is very good for the real estate business. In a recent home report in The New York Times, housing trends show that multi-family residents across multiple generations are willing to trade-in unit square footage for added space in common areas, on-site workout facilities, and for pools.
Customized multi-family fitness centers must reflect the style and philosophy of the day in order to attract today’s modern family members, and this may include spaces for socializing, lots of natural light or solar panels, and instant Wi-Fi connectivity.
Every fitness and wellness space is slightly different, of course, and so we always take into consideration different configurations – and work closely with our clients to deliver the optimal fitness experience. We design your space while partnering with your architects, interior designer and contractors to fully optimize your fitness amenities and breath-taking design elements.
Multi-Family Fitness Centers Require Light and Space
At Opti-Fit, our specialized software process may provide realistic renderings of your facility while bringing a strong sense of detail and accuracy to a multi-family wellness space.
As your potential tenants tour places to live, knowing their family will take advantage of the fitness center, here are several things to be on the lookout for when designing a new multi-family fitness center:
- First consider the demographics and users to this new facility. It’s important to consider the ages and other characteristics of the residents.
- Select visually appealing carpeting or flooring; install mirrors to open up the room.
- Make it a smart mix of cardio equipment, strength machines, free weights, medicine balls and everything else you need to exercise, whether you are a Baby Boomer or a super-fit millennial.
- Build value in your community by reminding residents online of all the healthy living amenities your residence offers. Building a residential fitness center everyone can enjoy is an excellent opportunity to add market appeal and boost engagement.
Whether renting or buying, today’s savvy multi-family residents are looking for amenities that go beyond the front lobby, shared common area and outside spaces. They want a fantastic fitness center and excellent equipment maintenance, too.
