Gym Design Trends

Our MD Stavros Theodoulou highlights some of the key trends for this year.


Recovery has now become an integral part of workout routines. The demand for dedicated recovery spaces is on the rise.  These space can be within the gym with areas for percussion/compression sessions or located in a Wellness Suite near the changing rooms, equipped with amenities like ice baths and infrared saunas.

Sustainable Design:

We’re seeing an increased number of clients who are pushing for the use of sustainable materials in the fit-out of their gym.  Eco-friendly gym equipment is on the rise alongside recycled materials for finishes and furnishing.

Fostering Community Through Design:

Seeking social connections at the gym is a priority for gym goers and is key to building a strong customer base. Creating interaction points, hesitation spaces and member hubs within the customer journey is key to driving social connections.

Training Pods:

As hybrid training gathers momentum, strength and functional zones are incorporating more Training Pods. These muti-functional storage racks and rigs give the member complete flexibility on how they train within zone. The impact of this is of course is more space allocated to Functional and Strength training zones within the overall gym layout.

Mental and Physical health:

As the stigma on mental health falls, it’s become apparent that many gym-goers use their workouts for mental benefits as well as physical. As a result, we’re seeing a holistic approach to gym design to incorporate meditation and yoga alongside strength and resistance training.
