No one anticipated a wide scale shut down of fitness centers and other communal amenities within multi-family properties. The gym itself is a coveted and perpetually increasing lifestyle driven amenity for residents. Now with the ongoing prospect of greater “stay or work from home” behavior, multi-family community density will strongly impact how and where residents exercise on property. Designing an effective plan to manage and maximize appropriate spaces dedicated to resident well-being is critical.
Consider the following:
- How can you help facilitate your residents in their desire to prioritize fitness, health and self care beyond the four walls of the fitness center?
- What steps must be taken to rebalance the existing fitness center floorplan to effect digital guidance, improve traffic flow, and implement essential hygiene modifications?
- Where might you identify adjunct spaces, both indoor and outdoor, to mitigate the load on the existing fitness center?
