At AFP, our mission is to design and supply innovative and on trend fitness amenity solutions. Critical to this endeavor is to solve for the pain points that accompany the planning and development phases for the project.Today, boutique studios are all the rage and our clients are clamoring to integrate the fun factor and experiential training that takes place in these environments into their own facilities. Enter Aktiv’s new ACADEMY Studio solution. ACADEMY was born from years of experience in designing safe, functional and boutique training spaces. They’ve vetted out the most efficient use of space, the best gear options, flooring, and guided virtual programming. As such, ACADEMY is a fully optimized functional training environment that can be embedded within a fitness amenity of any type or scale solving for the more common abstract nature of how to integrate movement training into predominantly unsupervised spaces.

Millennials and Generation Zeros are demanding a higher level of flexibility and connectivity in their workouts and workout spaces, and they want to achieve that within their living environment.
