Upgrading or Renovating the Gym: 5 Steps for a Fresh Start in 2021
Commercial gym renovation requires strategic planning, and it can be time-consuming and complex, especially in 2021, when gyms are slowly reopening, and the competition is fierce.
An expert’s suggestions and insights can help speed up the process and save time. You count on Fitness World to help you identify the planning steps for your next project.
Over the years, we have been fortunate to partner in multiple health clubs, commercial gyms, and office gyms. We’ve learned a lot along the way and are eager to help you with your gym revamping project.
If you are considering an expansion, renovation, or equipment upgrade – here are 5 vital steps to help you get started.
Step 1: Advertise Your Reopening Plans
You might have lost a bunch of members to the pandemic. However, there must be many people that are waiting to get back to their workout routine in your gym. You might even come across new members who have realized the importance of fitness in 2020 and are looking forward to becoming a member.
Let people know that you are planning to revamp your gym. You can use email marketing, social media, distribute flyers, SMS marketing, and other forms of promotion. This is a great way to provide valuable insights into the experience you are creating. You can also open pre-registration slots to secure your list of clients.
Step 2: Dedicate Space for Various Kinds of Fitness Programs
Set goals for the equipment update and space renovation. This will help you determine and track your ROI. Also, different people have different fitness routines and goals. So if you want to attract a diverse group of members, your gym needs to offer additional features.
- Create a functional training space. This can be used for large or small group training sessions such as CrossFit, boot camps, obstacle course race training.
- Have a space for popular and trendy fitness experiences such as a cycling studio, yoga sessions, or Zumba classes.
- You can also sublet a space of your facility to a complementary business such as massage therapy. This will help create more business opportunities and attract more clients.
Step 3: Set Up a Budget
Many renovation processes start with this step. However, with enough preparation (Step 1) and detailed planning (Step 2), you can set a realistic and relevant budget. This will help determine the capital that is required for the project. You will also know if there is a need to raise more funds for your facility.
Step 4: Plan & Design the Layout
Designing a gym from scratch is a difficult process. However, computer-aided design (CAD) makes this process efficient and simple. We at Fitness World, offer special services for creating 3D designs and plan with the layout with various equipment and features you wish to include. All of this is done with maximum accuracy and precision.
With our CAD services, you can select a wide range of features and fitness equipment to suit your target clients and business. The designs will give you a glimpse of the different types of equipment you wish to add to your facility. You can also map out areas like disabled access, exits, and flooring types for your gym.
