In Motion Fitness Renovation

Chico, Calif. 2011

Project Description

This family-oriented club includes a wide array of activity spaces and amenities throughout a five-acre site, with a design that recalls a Mediterranean village atmosphere. Featuring a combined nine pools or spas, the aquatic facility has proven popular for birthday parties and rentals. Fitness and athletics spaces include two free-weight rooms, two group exercise studios, a dedicated yoga atrium with a butterfly display, a Pilates studio, an indoor basketball court, two cardio rooms with 110 machines, two weight rooms with 100 machines, and a women’s workout room.

The facility also boasts spaces for children’s programs and senior wellness programs. Wellness and lifestyle amenities include areas for massage and facials, a steam room, a sauna and an on-site physical therapy suite. Recent expansions or additions include men’s and women’s executive locker rooms, a full-service café serving organic and healthy foods, a second-story conference/event room with balcony overlooking the aquatic area and a fitness promenade decorated with water arches.

The childcare area was expanded by 75 percent and is now equipped with double-lock entry doors with buzzers, a check-in number system and five video cameras, and features an arts and crafts area, eating areas and play areas. The walls are decorated with hand-painted aquatic scenes, and three 450-gallon saltwater tanks feature exotic tropical fish and a live coral reef.
