A new F45 Training fitness studio has opened its doors in Streatham Hill, South London, following a full fit out by Lincolnshire commercial interior design business APSS.
F45 Training is one of the fastest-growing fitness franchises in the world with the first opening in Australia in 2011. The F stands for ‘functional’ and the 45 is the amount of time you spend training in a session. The franchise offers a mix of circuit and HIIT style workouts geared towards everyday movements.
Due to the requirements of the franchise to be able to provide innovative, motivational results for its clients, APSS worked with the franchisee to design a workspace and create this impression.
Works included strip out of the existing toilet facilities to take the unit back to a bare shell. The design could then be installed in line with correct F45 Head Office requirements for the space, branding and finishes for the business.
In addition to electrical, plumbing and mechanical works, APSS joinery designed, built and installed bespoke lockers and toilet cubicles.
New partition walls were installed for the changing areas and additional support steelwork were installed so that equipment such as pull up bars would be safe and load-bearing.
Richard Mycroft, project manager for the APSS said: “It has been great to work with Leroy to help bring his ideal business to life. We worked closely with him to make the brand of his new business stand out in a vibrant way which matches other franchises across the world.
“It’s the collaboration between APSS and Leroy that has made this project a success and given a jump start to his new venture.”
Leroy Paull-Hartry, F45 Streatham Hill franchise owner said: “It was an absolute pleasure working with Richard and the team at APSS. They were constantly looking at ways to utilise space as best as possible and Robert Barber from the design team did an outstanding job in the layout for the male & female change rooms.
“The quality of the fit out, paintwork and signage are superb, and my members are constantly commenting on how great F45 Streatham Hill looks. The project was finished on time and will most definitely be turning to Richard at APSS when I start working on my second F45 studio.”
