Movement based training spaces have drastically altered the landscape of the fitness industry. From the unprecedented growth of boutique studios, to big box club chains seeking to replicate that “Experience” within their respective facilities, and everywhere in between — owners and operators are devoting tremendous resources to create fun, profitable, and sustainable training experiences. Unfortunately, many are incorporating a basic strategy of “build it, and they will come,” without sufficient thought and planning to ensuring that ALL “needs or desires are being met.”
The race is on to further integrate all things functional training. Facilitating function, traffic, and safety within exercise space comes at a premium
The moment exercise becomes play, everyone wins. It almost seems Taboo. Adult’s on a playground? You bet.
To develop truly functional commercial exercise space, both the end-user and the facility operator’s objectives need be considered throughout the design process. It takes strong planning to clarify the objectives of both audiences sufficiently. The process of initiating an effective functional design plan begins with the goal of the project: a clear direction as to what it is to be accomplished and why.
SANTA MONICA, CA (July 11, 2016) – Aktiv Solutions, leaders in functional design and supply for the commercial fitness industry, today announced it has been named as Master Distributor for the revvll PRO and CorMax Training brands throughout the United States and Canada. The company will officially debut the latest products from both brands at this week’s IDEA World Convention and Trade Show in Los Angeles, CA.
When equipping your space, you’re doing so from an operator’s point of view. Wouldn’t it be great if you could find an equipment partner that had that vantage point, as well? Here, Harut Tovmasyan, the co-founder and CEO of EPX Elite Performance, explains how Aktiv Solutions knew exactly what the gym needed when equipping for functional spaces
D&I Fitness is more than just a gym, they believe fitness is a way of life. Drawing inspiration from the owner’s Muy Thai fighting experience, D&I Fitness offers functional fitness programming that cultivates a social fitness community for all ages.

Tip 37: NEW TRX TRAINING ZONE
TRX and Aktiv Solutions, leading experts in facility design and dynamic training solutions, unveiled the TRX Training Zone. Developed in collaboration, TRX Training Zones are a highly customizable, modular system that delivers a robust functional training experience.
“It’s no secret that today’s consumers are expecting a more engaging and communal experience from health clubs, driven by a far more sophisticated, athletic and exercise-science driven fitness culture,” said Green. “The trouble for traditional facilities is that it requires them, in some cases, to radically adjust the physical environment to accommodate these modern, movement-oriented training methods. We created Aktiv because of this need to provide functional design expertise first, and unique equipment-oriented solutions to follow”.
