The Situation

Angus Alive’s facilities are currently popular with the local community, one aim for the new investment is to attract and engage younger generations. As the facilities had not seem much investment in the past 5-8 years, this resulted in them being behind the market trends.

The Brechin site was surrounded by white space and felt like a cold and unfriendly environment to train in. The layout design also meant that lots of space was not currently being utilised.

The Solution

Through a period of consultation with Angus Alive, Indigo Fitness designed innovative space layouts using equipment more in line with the market trends and also integrating new popular spaces on to the gym floor, while not sacrificing any functionality to the space or equipment to the users.

The gym flooring is an aspect of the gym design that can often be overlooked. This is a critical part of the design not only to ensure that the subfloor and equipment isn’t damaged, but to also create a desired look and feel to the space. We supplied a jigsaw fitting 14mm and 7mm rubber tile which varied in colour depending on training zone. adding to the unique feel of the space.

The training zones consisted of Strength, Functional Training and Fixed Resistance and Cardio. These distinct training areas maximise floor space and give each area a clear identity.

A bespoke rig system was designed to increase functionality of the space without impacting on floor space. The bespoke rig integrates a smith machine, half rack and cable pulley along with storage for bumper plates and accessory items. Our ability to custom colour the rig, added another unique element to the facility design to strengthen the brand identity across Angus Alive sites.

Along with the rig, we supplied plate loaded single station strength machines, custom coloured, a variety of functional and strength accessory items including Dumbbells, Rubber Kettlebells, coloured bumper plates and grip weight plates.  

To complete the functional training zone we also supplied a HIIT cardio machines including  RAZE Renegade Airbike and Concept2 SkiErg and Rower.

The Result

Indigo Fitness worked in partnership with other market leaders (Life Fitness, Hutchinson Technologies and Myzone) to support the upgrade of the facilities, which resulted in a bright, inviting space which is now contending with modern training trends and making better use of space. 

This will allow Angus Alive to service their current membership while offering more attractive training opportunities to the younger generation.
