A spectacular 6,000 sqft indoor/outdoor oceanfront fitness center was designed as one of the finest and most complete hotel and resort fitness experiences of its kind. Perched atop the existing Beach Club Complex, previously challenged as an open terrace event space due to the robust sea breezes, the new wellness venue provides breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean through 10’ high arched mahogany windows. The outdoor terrace now provides an expansive space for outdoor exercises.
The interior concept is contemporary and clean with nods to the beachfront location. A sleek stainless steel railing echoes an expansive arc outlining the flooring to separate cardio from functional space. On one side of the railing the latest trend in fitness flooring, woven vinyl, gets a modern twist in metallic fray and bright blue stripes. The other side features gray washed wood flooring. A tranquil shade of blue paint coats the walls throughout, accented by a bright white high gloss lacquer on the trim and hospitality stations. A textured gloss white tile trims the wall mirrors while a 7’ x 12’ LED screen depicts images of the latest sporting event to stimulate the workout.
