Project Name: GFX Fit
Location: Solana Beach, CA
Market Segment: Boutique Studio Gym 

Project Summary:

Scott Baker’s vision was to create a culture and community around his own creative style, energy and brand of fitness, and thus Gemini Fit Personal Training was born in Solana Beach, CA. Originally an 800 square foot studio, the brand evolved to what is now GFX Fit – and a partnership with Aktiv Solutions resulted in an expansive and thoughtfully-designed gathering space with an ambiance of sophistication, style, and substance where fitness meets community, and friendships are formed.

“Working with Aktiv has been phenomenal! I was able to achieve my goals for the space I wanted to create. A space that would build community with its ambiance, deliver killer – but FUN – workouts and form meaningful connections for our members.”

The fast-paced “shot of espresso,” Tabata style workouts required specially designed personal stations to ensure ease of transition, efficiency and flow for every workout. When Scott saw Gym Rax he knew he had to have it to expertly and beautifully facilitate these workouts and offer smart storage.

Scott’s vision, for creating one of the coolest luxury boutique group fitness studios, has clearly come to fruition from the accolades he’s received thus far. Scott has been awarded San Diego Magazine’s ‘Best Personal Trainer’, named ‘It Trainer’ by Modern Luxury Magazine, ranked as ‘Best Class’ on ClassPass, and deemed ‘Best Gym’ in Ranch & Coast Magazine four consecutive times.

It was important for the training studio to have a great storage solution to hold a lot of equipment while visually looking stunning to keep everything nice and neat.

From performance flooring to custom, ambient lighting to wall art from local artists and everything in between, Aktiv worked with Scott to develop a stylish and innovative facility with its own unique VIBE.

The space includes a Hyperice Recovery Zone fully outfitted for pre workout warm-ups and post workout recovery while facilitating connection to the community.
