With the new year fast approaching we’re anxious to get as much space as possible out of the “under construction” category and put it back into service. We expect to make major headway in this effort over the next few days.
We passed a major milestone over the Christmas holiday and reclaimed the main cardio deck on the second floor. With the return of this 2000 square feet of floor area, we were able to make some major moves in terms of relocating cardio equipment. All of the pieces that used to be above the men’s locker room were cleared from that space, as were about a dozen pieces from downstairs.
As we move sequentially through the process, the next step is to complete the remaining flooring on the second floor. That is scheduled to occur over the next few days, and while it will present some challenges (access to some areas upstairs will be limited at times) once it is completed we’ll finally be able to begin “stretching out”. There will be three new alcoves for cardio equipment…one overlooking the parking lot, one above the lobby, and one above the weight room. The large multi-use space over the men’s locker room (where we used to have cardio equipment) will now be totally devoted to core and stretch.
With the completion of the new spaces upstairs we will be able to move the remaining equipment out of “Studio 1” and begin work on that space. We will also have room to bring in some new cardio equipment. As soon as all of the equipment has been placed in its permanent location we will be attaching the new personal TV screens. Unfortunately there will be a brief transition period (1-2 weeks) when no music or video options will be available on the cardio equipment. But once the new equipment is in place you will have complete control over what you watch or listen to, with approximately 50 channels from which to choose.
