FACILITIES RANGING FROM 200 TO 150,000 SQUARE FEET
The Life Fitness layout team partners with customers and sales representatives who require 2D and 3D layouts to help them visualize their facilities.
Each of our five layout specialists have degrees in either architecture, interior design or animation with skills using AutoCAD, Visio, Adobe Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere, Photoshop or 3D Max. They are also trained on every one of our cardio and strength products to ensure they know exactly what is needed to provide an accurate layout. This team supports more than 200 outside sales representatives spanning from North and South America to the U.K.
Requirements for Layout
CAD or PDF drawing of space
Current facility pictures
Location of columns, doors, etc
Existing power outlet locations
Facility layout requests ranging from 200 to 150,000 square feet are made by sales representatives for clubs, military and educational facilities, hotels and resorts, or multi-unit residential buildings.
Our team then works with customers to fulfill their ideal equipment mixes, number of pieces, and space and safety requirements. They recommend layouts that pass any ADA (American Disabilities Act), ASTM (American Standard for Testing Materials), or live area inspections and regulations.
Square Footage Requirements Formula
Subtract 10% from overall space for flow
Consider every cardio or selectorized strength piece to have a live area of 50 square feet
Larger strength equipment has a live area of 100 square feet
