COMMERCIAL CASE STUDY
Supersonic Fitness is a new fitness, wellbeing and lifestyle concept
Supersonic Fitness is a new fitness, wellbeing and lifestyle concept for York, located in the transformed Stonebow House development. Once the legendary Fibbers music venue in the heart of the city, the new fitness venue offers a full range of premium gym equipment alongside studio space for classes, a state-of-the-art spa recovery zone and a healthy eating café open to members and non-members.
Supersonic is the first lifestyle facility of its kind: harmoniously balancing the industrial features of the building with oxygen-rich natural plant life and modern thinking, and advancing the concepts of fitness and wellbeing, lifestyle and social interaction.
With an unusual space to work with, including a fully glazed gym, the equipment layout was very important to make best use of the space available. Erimus equipment was specified throughout the gym alongside Technogym, Octane, Concept 2, Matrix and Watt Bike. Essentially a best of breed approach was taken from a variety of manufacturers.
A dedicated functional zone with a bespoke ceiling mounted rig was created to mix up training alongside a stretching area offering members a spacious area to warm up and cool down. There are two fitness studios, one which focuses on the more high intensity and sweaty stuff such as Spin, Boxing, and HIIT whilst the other is a more relaxing space for yoga, Pilates barre, tai chi and meditation. Both studios were designed to create the optimum environment for working out.
The unique recovery zone includes a state-of-the-art infrared sauna, a Finnish sauna, experience shower and ice fountain allowing members to move between the dedicated ‘heat and ice’ areas for a full contrast therapy session. The treatments room and changing facilities have been finished to a beautifully high standard, offering members a luxurious and spa-like experience.
Understanding that nutrition and we how we fuel our bodies is an essential part of wellbeing, there is also a welcoming cafe located on the ground floor open to both members and non-members.
