Gym Design for Schools & University

Expert End To End Gym Design & Installation Service

For over 20 years, Indigo Fitness has set out to create unique, bespoke training spaces for budgets great and small.

When it comes to student living, in a booming industry of affordable student accommodation both on and off the campus, we provide state-of-the-art facilities including gym design and installation and equipment supply – everything a student could need to fulfil their fitness and health needs during their education.

We Talk About Your Project

To make sure that we can create the perfect fitness space for your academic sports facility, we ensure your needs and specifications are fully-tailored to suit you and your students best. Working closely together to share ideas and inspiration, and sharing your own ideas and visions, we can bring our expertise to design and install the student gym space of your dreams. All we’d need to know are your room dimensions, flooring and wall specifications, but we’re happy to come and visit your site, tape measure in hand.

We Plan Each Details

Once we have a good understanding of your goals and ambitions for your space, our designers will begin to plan out your new gym.

Flooring: We always start with the flooring. We believe it’s the most critical element to get right, and to get right first time – mistakes here can be costly and time-consuming to correct at a later date. We always think about what each area will be used for, as this dictates the flooring required to ensure that space maintains its functionality and still give each area a strong visual differentiation.

Equipment: Training equipment mix and location is key to making sure your students can get the most out of their workout. We’ll consider positioning and orientation of hero pieces, space to move, as well as training space and storage – something that’s frequently overlooked, but a tidy gym is a safe and effective one!

We Show You Your New Gym Design

We use industry-leading design software to present scale plans of your university training space. This can be both top-down 2D plans and a full virtual walkthrough to really bring the space to life. We can even add in wall colours, textures and add your branding, to make it look as realistic as possible.

It’s great to see your ideas for your gym laid out in this way and often throws up a few things you might not have thought about, prompting you to make some changes to layout or equipment – which really is the whole point! Changing things at this stage of the process takes very little time and costs nothing.


Installation – the final and most important piece of the process, where all of your visions, ideas, and visuals are brought to life. Our team of professional installers will complete the whole process – from laying the various flooring types, to unwrapping, building, and positioning all the equipment, taking care of any floor or wall fixings along the way. Our final checks ensure your new university training space is clean, tidy, and fully operational – leaving you hassle-free and able to focus on what you do best.

University Gym Design Case Study

After Bangor Gymnastics club moved onto new premises, Canolfan Brailsford was left with an empty space and a decision to make on how to improve their university facility. They felt a multi-function fitness room was the way to go, and put the project out for tender – looking for creative and innovative proposals that would meet their ideas and hit their budget. Indigo Fitness were happy to rise to their challenge.
