Over the next few months we have a number of upgrades planned for the Club. You may have noticed the tarps that just went up in the lobby and surmised that something will be happening in that spot soon. Well, you’d be wrong! While expanding our food & beverage offering is still our goal, we’ve put those plans on hold temporarily to work on some more pressing matters. We just grew weary of looking at the unfinished floors!
Speaking of floors, one of the first projects that we will be starting is a facelift of the upstairs stretching room. We’ll be replacing the carpet with a cushioned rubber floor. We’ll also be installing wood panels and mirrors on some of the walls to help make the space more functional. Finally, we’ll be taking out some equipment, adding some others, and trying to get things stored a little more efficiently. That room can get surprisingly busy, so we’re trying to make the most of it!
Another space that will be getting some sprucing up is the dumbbell room. New lighting will be going up very soon, and later this fall a thicker, more cushioned floor will be going under the benches.
While we’re on the subject of dumbbells, we’re also working on ways to make some of our dumbbell storage work a little more efficiently. We have new 4-tier racks ordered for the Power Studio, and when those arrive it’s going to let us get rid of those pain-in-the-butt vertical racks. We’ll then take the existing 3-tier racks from the studio and use them downstairs in the weight room to get all the hex dumbbells off the floor.
Another big upgrade will take place in the locker rooms. The men will be getting all new locker doors and they will be outfitted with electronic locks. No more keys! On the women’s side we will be upgrading all of our daily use lockers as well. All of the new locks (men and women) will have 10 digit keypads that require you to enter a four digit code and then confirm the code before it will lock. This should eliminate all the snafus we have with the current locks.
We’re also shopping and getting ready to replace some equipment in both the weight room and the cardio areas. If there’s something you’d like to see, be sure to let us know. HealthQuest is always looking for ways that we can make the Club better for our members!
