Trends in Locker Room
Design in Fitness/Wellness Facilities
We hope that after visiting our site, you
will realize the importance that facility lockers play as being an integral part of the "image" your club, resort,
spa, pool, etc portrays to your clients. Oftentimes, clubs will be only one or two weeks
from their Grand Opening before they realize they have forgotten about lockers!
Oftentimes, the nicest "high-end" clubs will splurge on the finest fitness
equipment, but will completely overlook the locker room...settling for whatever is the
least expensive at the time. Nice fitness equipment is important. But
nothing will ruin
a facility's image quicker than a dingy, unkempt locker area with rusted or warped
lockers. Locker areas can either help or can
damage your club's identity. The locker room is the
first and last area of your club that your client will visit; therefore it will be the strongest impression they will have.
Oftentimes, a club will
have to trade off "looks" or "function" when purchasing lockers.
Now, we have the solution: Fortress Locker
Systems. We manufacture high-end plastic lockers which will satisfy both your
aesthetic and practical needs. High-end clubs
can now have attractive, cabinet-style plastic lockers which will not rust, corrode, or
warp when faced with humidity and moisture.

aesthetics are as important as function.
The trend in the Fitness Industry over
the last few years has been in improving facility amenities geared towards making the
"client" feel pampered and cared for. For years, it was the
fitness equipment that distinguished "top ranking" clubs from
the rest... now, it is also the smaller detail "extras" that count with members.
will break a club's reputation or decrease membership's faster than a poorly
equipped or maintained locker room. Many facilities
with top-rated fitness equipment falter in membership numbers due to neglect of facility
locker room amenities (i.e., rusted or warped lockers, dingy and dirty locker rooms). The
locker room is the first and last area of your club that your members will see each time
they visit your facility. It is from this that they will undoubtedly form opinions
about your facility.

Trends seen in Athletic
Club locker rooms across the U.S.:
Once considered an "after thought" among athletic clubs in favor of high-end
fitness equipment, the locker room has now been acknowledged as being an integral part of facility
planning. Here are a few things you can do to give a lift to your club's locker area
- Attractive, clean
lockers are a must!
- Keep locker areas
bright and airy. Dull, dark dingy rooms are out.
- Monitor locker
rooms continuously throughout the day for cleanliness.
- Invest in decorative
soaps, shampoos, lotions to have with in the dressing/shower areas. Attention to
lockers and amenities speak volumes!
- Dressing tables
equipped with salon-style blow dryers
- Towel/laundry services
- Decorate the locker
room area by using plants and/or pictures. Remember that it is a room that you want
your clients to feel relaxed in after a long work out.
- Have music piped into
the locker room. Remember you want to create a relaxed atmosphere ... choose music
- Create a lounge area
within a portion of the locker room (if you have the space). Cushy chairs and
televisions are being seen more and more in higher-end clubs.
