Exercise Versatility in Multi-Family Fitness Centers

May 30, 2018

Thinking Outside the Box


Opti-Fit must be resourceful and flexible when designing and equipping residential fitness spaces that may be small, oddly shaped or poorly lit. Multi-family health club footprints, especially,  are often compressed to accommodate other amenities, so maximizing versatility and usability in residential gym areas is key. And we work within your budget and according to your personalized and customized design goals.


At Opti-Fit we accomplish these goals by utilizing and equipping multifunctional, movable equipment tailored and customized to your gym’s layout. We are fast, flexible and versatile.


Consider Your Target User

We do take into consideration the demographics of your school or residence, your surrounding neighborhood, and much more. Our innovative and flexible approach emphasizes providing for all ages and experience levels to democratize the space and maintain compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act.


Family Fitness: Ambiance and Efficiency

When designing and equipping residential gyms, you must also consider cardio machines and exercise trends for all ages and sizes, such as aquatic programming, yoga and other mind-body exercise routines.


Ten years ago adapting the fitness center to various workout types has historically meant designating certain areas for cardio, stretching and weight training. Today, you likely add (on top of those main three areas) a yoga area, cycling and functional training areas. Segregating these activities prevents injuries caused by too-much equipment in an overly small space.
